Kim Kardashian Sued by Staff For Alleged Unpaid Wages | 22 Words

Kim Kardashian is under fire once again, however this time by her own staff. Seven people from her cleaning and maintenance crew have banded together, and gone after her in court for allegedly failing to pay wages, provide meal breaks and cover expenses. The 40-year-old celeb has resisted blame, saying it was the vendor who has made the mistake.

Kim Kardashian has had a rough 6 months...

In February, she filed for divorce against rapper and father of her children, Kanye West. After 7 years together, the pair had split, both of them seeking physical and legal joint custody of their four children - North, Saint, Chicago and Psalm.

And the Kardashians announced that their show will be coming to an end, signalling the end of an era...

And of course, we're all still a bit upset over it.

It's been a wild fourteen years, to say the least!

And thanks to the success of the show, the sisters have all become influencial figures across all social media platforms.

They've come a very long way...

And more and more, the family are being respected as major players... particularly in the realms of fashion and beauty.

The famous sisters have all embarked upon their own ventures...

Including Kim's underwear line, Skims, and Kylie's cosmetics line, Kylie Cosmetics - both of which have been hugely successful.

They're literally one of the most famous families on the planet...

And let's be honest, they have the lavish life to show for it - inviting viewers to watch every scandal, drama, and luxury holiday unfold on screen.

But there are some things that they just can't seem to get right.


The Kardashian clan just can't seem to avoid controversy at every turn... and not even on their own show! Skeptics might even suspect they actually dramatized it to get more viewers.

We've seen them have their fair share of run-ins with fans... and, more than often, with each other.


Throughout the last decade and a half of watching their show, we've seen some pretty iconic moments.

Right from the get-go, from season 1, we were shown moments such as this one.

It's still very much ingrained in our memory.

And how can we forget Kendall and Kylie's constant arguing?

Whether it's over whose the more successful model or whether or not they can wear each other's clothes... the drama between the Jenner sisters is never-ending.

And this bust-up is undoubtedly one of the worst...


The physical fight between Kim and Kourtney on Season 18!

But you know what? These are the moments we've lived for in the past fourteen years...

And there's no doubt that they'll never be forgotten.

Of course, the twentieth and final season is currently being aired...

In a recent episode of KUWTK, Kim is reportedly seen confronting Kourtney over an argument she had with Kim's nanny...


And the heated confrontation has gotten fans talking.

Kim told Kourtney that she shouldn't have confronted her employee in public at a restaurant, noting that she likes to keep her own staff around for a long time.

"You can't even keep a nanny!" she fired at her sister.

And in classic Kourtney fashion, she tells Kim to "Shut the f*** up."

Getty

"Honestly, the way you're talking is wild. You keep projecting all your bull**** onto me."

In a confessional, Kourtney later added that Kim's comments were "hurtful."

However now Kim is the one under fire for not treating her staff correctly...

According to some legal documents picked up by TMZ, Kim is being sued by seven staff members...

The seven people claim they were told upon hire they were full-time employees, but they say they were treated as independent contractors instead and got screwed out of full-time employee benefits.

A representative from Kims team said Kim "is not responsible for how the vendor manages their business and the agreements they have made directly with their staff."

The businesswoman and mother of four apparently hired a third-party vendor for the ongoing maintenance/cleaning services, and personally had nothing to do with the payment of the seven claimants.

And she really should know what she's talking about...

Kims father was a Lawyer, the famous Robert Kardashian, who represented OJ Simpson in one of the biggest crime cases in the last century.

She's now in his footsteps...

Her path to becoming a qualified lawyer is extremely unusual. Instead of going to law school like the overwhelming majority of legal trainees in the states, Kim is taking part in a four-year legal apprenticeship which she hopes to complete in 2022. She has already assisted in lobbying innocent people off death row.
