The Kardashian and Jenner family allegedly 'fired' and unfollowed their long-term stylist Monica Rose back in 2017.

And it appears as though they could be at it again, as it's reported they've parted ways with longtime makeup artist Joyce Bonelli who they used even before they got famous.

US Weekly claim the family are no longer in contact with the 36-year-old mother-of-three and according to their Instagram accounts, they've unfollowed her too.


Feud? It was reported on Thursday that the Kardashian-Jenner clan have 'fired' and unfollowed long-time makeup artist Joyce Bonelli (pictured with Kylie in 2014)

Where's the love? On Thursday, Joyce posted this picture of herself with Khloe Kardashian, writing that she loves her, suggesting there is no bad blood, but the message was ignored

'The family doesn't speak to her anymore,' revealed their insider. 'She hasn't worked with them for months.'

The source claimed that they parted on friendly terms but the family's actions appears to suggest otherwise.

They said of Joyce: 'The decision was made amicably. They just stopped working with her because they didn't see it as a right fit anymore.'

And while the split was reportedly civil, the Kardashian-Jenner brood have all unfollowed Joyce - even Khloé's best friend Malika Haqq.

Joyce is currently working on her own beauty line which perhaps could be regarded as competition to the girls' own beauty lines.

They have KKW beauty and Kylie has her own beauty empire, which is said to be worth $420million.

But regardless of the unexpected parting, Joyce has continued to share posts of the sisters on her Instagram feed - even though they have opted not to like or even comment back.

'ma·tri·arch of lifeeee. HAPPY BIRTHDAY !! HOTTEST BIRTHDAY BOOTY ALIVE (sic) always got your back (sic) especially w that glitterrrr,' she wrote on Wednesday in celebration of Khloé's birthday.


Amicable: A source said: 'The decision was made amicably. They  didn't see it as a right fit anymore (pictured: Joyce with eldest sister Kourtney and  hairstylist Jen Atkin in 2015)

And although tagged, the new mom to True Thompson did not reciprocate the love.

The past few weeks have also seen the makeup artist post photos in celebration of Kim's daughter North's birthday and a throwback with Kylie Jenner.

Daily Mail has reached out to Joyce for further comment.

Back in 2017 Joyce spoke about how she considered the girls to be like family members.

She told W: 'I've been with the girls for so long and we've been through so much. It's been over a decade. 


Inspo: Joyce has previously taken credit for Kylie's love of the big lip look and said she persuaded her to try her beloved matte chocolate lip - her own beauty line is worth $420m

'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. 


'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.'

In 2016, Joyce told heat that Kim had banned her from working with Caitlyn Jenner.

She explained: 'Kim said [Caitlyn's] not allowed to use her glam squad – it's very hard to find people you like that are good and loyal.'

'I would do Bruce's makeup sometimes [in the past] and Caitlyn's now like, "I always used to love that".'

She also claimed that she was responsible for Kylie's big lips, saying she suggested she try out her trademark chocolate matte lip gloss.

In 2015, Joyce was Kim's hair muse when she first dyed her hair platinum blonde, just like hers.  

Joyce wrote at the time: 'Still playing, "single white females" opposites don't attract. bleached blondes have the most fun.. w my twin for a moment!

'Love that kiki finally listened to me & ye (after 2 damn years!) and legit did her hair e x a c t l y like mine! wait. no, im really living to be called her hair muse now LOL.

'So any of you freaks trying to take my shine, outta here, she said i was her inspiration. duh. HA (if u can't see that im making fun of myself, u r wild lol).'

This is not the first time the family has parted ways with one of their beloved staff members.

In April 2017, it was revealed that the brood had all fired their stylist Monica Rose who initially started working with Kim ten years earlier.

Reports at the time revealed that Khloé was considering suing Monica for reasons unknown.

She later took to Twitter to share two mysterious tweets which fans were certain were regarding her former employee.

'What would you do if you found out a friend was stealing from you?,' she asked her then 24 million followers.

'Would you cut off the friendship or let God handle it? Or would you go the legal route?' 

According to Page Six, sources close to Khloé claimed that Monica had allegedly been charging tens of thousands of dollars in designer clothes to her credit card - however the items never ended up in her closet.

They also added that there were many high end fashion pieces sent to the beauty too which she never received.


Pocketing the items? It was also reported at the time that Monica allegedly was taking home many high end fashion pieces sent to Khloe by top designers

Meanwhile, back in April, Kim appeared to reconcile with her former assistant Stephanie Shepherd, months after they fell out over professional differences.

Having worked for the star since 2013, Stephanie fell out with her ex-boss last year when she was made COO of Kim's company, KKW, but was fired shortly after the promotion - leading to the alleged bad blood between the former friends.

Despite this, Stephanie is best pals with Kim's sister Kourtney - leading to her appearance at the star's 39th birthday on Thursday evening, during which she stunned fans when she posed amicably with her ex-boss.

In the midst of their feud, sources revealed to People at the time: 'Kim made a decision to let Stephanie go. She was a good assistant but when Stephanie wanted to transition into a larger role with Kim's brand and businesses, it just didn't work.'

It was also claimed that Kim was uncomfortable about Stephanie's rising star, as insiders said: 'Steph went from being an assistant to being a celebrity. For a regular girl, she has a huge social media following.

'She loves the attention, but it took away from her job. There was a feeling that being Kim's assistant, Steph should stay more in the background. But Kim is the one who helped her get the followers by posting pictures with Steph.'

The source added: 'Kim needed an assistant where the relationship is more professional. It's very difficult to work with friends, so Kim decided to hire someone else.
