Kim Kardashian is clearing the air after claims that she does not pay her employees.
The 40-year-old businesswoman and reality TV star responded to a fan who inquired if she pays her staff in an Instagram Stories Q&A on Wednesday, May 26.
A group of former employees sued Kardashian earlier this week.
“Absolutely, I respect people for their time and hard work,” Kardashian responded. “Unfortunately, these workers are suing the wrong person.” “I paid the vendor, and it is their responsibility to pay their employees. I hope they are able to remedy this problem as soon as possible.”
On Monday, May 24, several of Kardashian’s former employees filed a complaint stating that they were not paid for the hours they worked, were not given proper breaks, were not paid overtime, and were not given any essential documentation to establish employment.
A gardener was also said to have been sacked right after voicing his concerns.
Kardashian later issued a statement through her legal team, claiming that she hired a third-party provider for continuing maintenance and cleaning services.
In a statement, the spokeswoman said, “Kim has never failed to pay a vendor for their services and hopes that the dispute between these individuals and the vendor who hired them may be settled amicably soon.”
Kardashian also debunked rumours that she had hooked up with her sister Kourtney’s new boyfriend, Travis Barker, in the same Q&A.
“”Did you hook up with Travis Barker?” a fan inquired. “NO!” she replied. False information! We’ve been friends for a long time, and I’m thrilled for him and Kourtney.”
