The Kardashians have cut ties with longtime friend and makeup artist Joyce Bonelli

At this point, the Kardashian name is pretty much synonymous with controversy. Whether Kim is incensing social media writ large after "breaking the internet", or contentiously endorsing "appetite" suppressing lollipops, one thing is for certain: people will always have something to say about whatever the Kardashian-Jenner family choose to say or do.

And apparently so do the people closest to them. In today's dose of drama, the Kardashians have reportedly parted ways with their longtime makeup artist and friend, Joyce Bonelli.

Bonelli has been working with the Kardashians since before they were breaking the internet, and last year she asserted that they "text every other day", and "they're like my sisters". Now, however, a source has told US Weekly that not only has she not "worked for them for months" but that "the family doesn't speak to her anymore".

Drama, drama, eh?

After doing a little snooping, it's apparent that the Kardashian's don't even follow Bonelli on Instagram anymore, even though she still follows the family and posts about them occasionally.

But apparently, it's not quite what it seems. According to the US Weekly source, "They just stopped working with her because they didn’t see it as a right fit anymore."

In other Kardashian related news, Khloé Kardashian has finally broken her silence on her relationship with Tristan Thompson, who allegedly cheated on the Keeping Up With The Kardashians star throughout her pregnancy.

After a so-called "fan" called Khloé a "hypocrite" for staying with the 27-year-old NBA player, and started waxing lyrical about "women knowing their self-worth and when to walk away," the 33-year-old explained why exactly she chose to remain with Thompson, who she has been involved with for over a year now.

Twitter user, Queen Persia asserted, "I love, adore & root for @khloekardashian but I’m so disappointed she stayed with that wasteman Tristan. she preaches about women knowing their self worth and when to walk away but when it’s time to walk the walk, she’s a hypocrite."

Just minutes later, Khloé replied: "Not exactly Queen Persia, you have no knowledge of what goes on in our household or the enormous rebuilding this takes to even coexist. I’m proud of my strength. I appreciate your opinion and I hope you hold that same opinion to everyone else who has stayed in situations."

It didn't just end there, however. Queen Persia then responded to Khloé's tweet, and attempted to defend herself by writing "I’m not trying to judge you, bc I do adore you girl. [You're] a role model to millions of girls, I get that you’re trying to figure sh*t out & tbh, your fans are protective of you. we just don’t want some lame breaking your heart again. that’s it."

"I love you for that and girl trust me don’t I understand!!! I appreciate you I do!!" Khloé replied.

Well, regardless of whether there are more sinister reasons as to why Kim and Co. have parted way with Bonelli, it's apparent that there's never a dull day when it comes to the Kardashian family.
