"Kourt keeps stealing away friends, makeup and hair people, stylists and other members of her inner circle," an insider dished.
“Kim’s entourage is dwindling and a lot of them are now hanging out at Kourtney’s house."
While Kourtney's motives may be pure, Kim is said to be taking it personally. "It’s hard to find a good makeup artist or stylist and once they’ve settled in, Kim notices Kourtney befriending them."
This isn't the first time Kourt's rained on Kim's parade, snitches the informant. "She did the same thing with Kim’s BFF Jonathan Cheban — Kourtney lured him away and soon they were hitting the clubs together!"
What's more — Kourtney, 38, also "stole" her assistant Stephanie Shepherd away, claims the pal. "Kim’s convinced it all boils down to Kourtney being jealous of her.”
As Radar readers know, Kim, 37, decided to fire her longtime assistant early this November.
The reality star hired Stephanie in 2013 to be her personal helper, yet the brunette beauty quickly rose to the position of COO in the Kardashian and West brands.
A source told PEOPLE that Stephanie “was a good assistant,” but when she wanted to “transition into a larger role with Kim’s brand and businesses, it just didn’t work.”
As fans know, Stephanie was known for a lot more than being Kim’s executive assistant. The model also became very close friends with Kourtney! They often appeared on each other’s social media channels, even calling one another adoring names such as “wifey” and “bae.” Kim was not a fan of their closeness, and even confronted her older sister about it during an episode of Keeping Up With The Kardashians! “I just think it’s weird,” Kim said at the time.
