Kim Kardashian West sues employees claiming they were underpaid and not paid | California

A representative said in a statement that Kardashian West could not be held accountable because the staff came through an unnamed “seller”.

“These workers were hired and paid by a third-party vendor appointed by Kim to provide current services,” the delegates said in a statement.

“Kim is not a party to the contract between the seller and their workers, so she is not responsible for how the seller manages their business and the contracts they make directly with their employees. Kim never pays a servant for their services and hopes that the issue between these workers and the salesperson who hired them can be resolved amicably. ”
