Kim Kardashian is no stranger to controversy. The fashion mogul has often faced criticism for her “tone deaf” remarks. Now a former assistant editor on Kim Kardashian’s now-defunct app has once again slammed her on social media.

Jessica DeFino claim she barely earned enough to survive while working on the reality star’s project in 2015. She initially tweeted her disdain for the Kardashian clan back in March after Kim went viral for offering up ‘tone deaf’ advice to women in business.

Now, DeFino went into detail about her experience in a new piece she wrote for Vice titled ‘I Worked My Ass Off for the Kardashian-Jenner Apps. I Couldn’t Afford Gas’, She described the hardships she claims she faced while working for Whalerock Industries, the digital media company hired by the Kardashian-Jenner siblings in May 2015 to create their apps. 

DeFino wrote, ‘I was an assistant editor on the Kardashian Jenner Official Apps, and I didn’t make enough money to make it to work,’ She added that she made $35,000-a-year, which left her with barely enough money to fill her gas tank and forcing her to shop at the 99 cent store for groceries. 

DeFino claimed that one day at the pump she could only fill her tank up to $4, admitting that she was forced to call in sick that day because she couldn’t afford enough gas to make it to the office and back. She wrote, ‘I panicked, slapped at the steering wheel, and screamed. And then I cried,’ 

Meanwhile, the Kardashian-Jenner family has yet to respond to the allegations against them. Stay tuned to Thirsty for further updates.
