Former employees sue Kim Kardashian: How is Twitter reacting?
Are we ready for our daily dose of Kardashian tea, folks? The royal family can’t go a half-day without tearing up headlines, and today is no different. Today, the spinning Kardashian-Jenner wheel of misfortune lands on the crown jewel (at least for millennials), Kim. Like last week’s drama surrounding Kourtney’s nanny, this week’s news has to do with the Kardashian employees.
Twitter is lighting up this week with rumors saying one of Kim Kardashian’s former employees is suing her. Vanity Fair says Kardashian is being sued by seven of her former employees for unpaid wages, and along with a plethora of other publications piping up, Twitter is full of voices putting in their two cents on Kim’s alleged Scrooging. Here’s what we found.

Just a headline
These days, most people get their news from headlines, without even reading the article (unlike you, dear reader). Outlets lit up Twitter about the Kim Kardashian situation, and TMZ unsurprisingly chimed in. They say Kim blames the lawsuit on a third-party vendor. What’s the truth?
