Stephanie Shepherd, Kim Kardashian's ex-assistant, finally tells why she was fired in 2017.

Stephanie Shepherd, Kim Kardashian's ex-assistant, has now explained why she was sacked in 2017.

"I just had this gut feeling that it was time to move on." I'm not sure if I have anything else to add to this.' "I think she probably felt and saw that," she remarked on Oct. 23's "The Skinny Confidential Him & Her Podcast."

Fortunately for the influencer, she learnt so much under Kardashian's tutelage that she was able to hit the ground running on her own.

Shepherd expressed surprise that the public is still obsessed with her firing after all these years.

Page Six exclusively reported in 2017 that Kardashian had dumped Shepherd after their four-year professional relationship collapsed.

According to a source, the "Kardashians" star, now 43, was irritated with Shepherd, 34, at the time for doing an interview with Refinery29 earlier that year.

"I understand. "I love encouraging whoever I'm working with," she added at the time. "Just because people stop working together doesn't mean that they're feuding and stop being friends."

Shepherd agreed, telling E! that they still talked once a week.
