Khloe Kardashian is being sued by a former household assistant and let’s be honest, are we surprised?
Kim Kardashian was under fire back in 2021 for allegedly underpaying seven former gardening and maintenance staff members and overworking them, sometimes with no meal break.
And, in 2020, the Kendall + Kylie brand, owned by Kendall Jenner and Kylie Jenner was also under investigation after rumors circulated that they failed to pay their workers in Bangladesh. Although the company claimed to have no connection to the country, people questioned if the sisters just had no idea about where their clothing was actually coming from.
But, let’s get back to the most recent news about our girl Khloe.
The Kardashian Nightmare
Matthew Manhard, a former household assistant to Khloe Kardashian, revealed that working for the mom of two was a complete nightmare.
Manhard began working for Khloe in January 2019 and was fired in November 2022 when he tried to return to work following an aggressive knee injury according to the lawsuit obtained by TMZ.
The former assistant also claims that the youngest Kardashian sister would keep him so busy with tasks that he wouldn’t have time for his legally required breaks and would short him of overtime pay after working a 12-hour day.
Ultimately, Manhard is after a monetary settlement, claiming that Khole violated multiple labor laws during his employment.
Care To Respond Khloe?
Of course, she does! Well, her reps do at least.
Khloe Kardashian’s legal rep responded to Manhard’s claims saying, “It’s unfortunate to learn that a former employee would choose to go this route. Matthew was properly classified and compensated for his role.”
And, when referring to Manhard’s leave of absence following his knee injury, the Good American Founder’s legal rep shared, “Toward the end of his employment, he was on a leave of absence for an extended period of time and the role eventually needed to be replaced. We will not tolerate false accusations and will prove that this is a frivolous lawsuit.”
Do we even need to question who will win this lawsuit? Probably not, but maybe we’ll get a plot twist for a change.
