Last week, it was reported that the Kardashians parted ways with their longtime makeup artist/friend Joyce Bonelli.
After the news made the rounds, the only public comment was an interesting Instagram post from Bonelli herself, where she posed in a robe with the words, “Fuck with me. I DARE YOU,” written on it.
Now, People magazine is reporting that there’s more animosity behind the split. A source spoke exclusively with the magazine and said that Bonelli allegedly “tried to go around [the Kardashians] on a deal so [they] wouldn’t make money off of it. They caught on and Kim stopped following her, but Khloé and Joyce remained amicable” until they severed ties, as well.
“Joyce would conveniently fly out of town for big Kardashian parties so people wouldn’t catch on,” the source said. “And after Kim and her parted ways, she would upload pictures of Kim and call Kim her ‘twin.’ Joyce also claims she came up with the tagline for Kanye’s hit ‘that s- cray,’ which is a lie. The Kardashians were just over her lies and the trying to cheat them out of money was the cherry on top.”
The split was quite shocking given that Bonelli had a great relationship with the family as of last year, and she referred to the Kardashians as her “sisters”, as she said in a June 2017 interview with The Hollywood Reporter.
“I’ve been with the girls for so long and we’ve been through so much. It’s been over a decade. We’ve known each other since the beginning, before they were famous. After they started their show, people started really loving them and then hating them and now they’re loving them again, there’s been so much that’s happened. Now each one of them is a phenomenon in their own way,” Bonelli said at the time.
She added, “We text every other day and we talk about everything. Even if I’m working with a different client we’re always talking and FaceTiming — we talk about kids, we talk about the fun, scandalous stuff. They’re like my sisters.”
Bonelli made the announcement of her personal debut beauty line, Joyce Bonelli Cosmetiques, last year, which some credit as a factor which contributed to the deterioration of the relationship between the makeup artist and the reality TV stars.
“Before I got pregnant, I was working with another manufacturer and wasn’t happy with the outcome. In the last few months, we’ve been starting over which is exciting,” Bonelli opened up to The Cut about her line, back in May 2017.
Time will tell if the feud will fizzle out or if it’sgoing to escalate even further.
