Khloe Kardashian believes a ‘friend’ stole tens of thousands of dollars from her

2017 NBC Upfront Kim and Khloe Kardashian

More than a month ago, there was some weird Kardashian gossip. The Kardashians employed stylist Monica Rose for years, and Rose was seemingly abruptly fired. Monica worked mostly with Khloe Kardashian and Kendall Jenner, and she also did some work with the Hadid sisters too. There was gossip because it seemed like some sh-t had gone down, and it wasn’t just a difference of styles or whatever. Everybody fired Rose all within a week and no one really knew why. Then, last week, Khloe tweeted this:

Many people thought these tweets might be about Monica Rose. And then TMZ basically confirmed that sh-t with a story yesterday:

Khloe Kardashian says she’s the victim of theft and betrayal by her former friend whom Khloe considered part of her family. Khloe took to Twitter over the weekend shedding some light on the incident and asking followers, “What would you do if you found out a friend was stealing from you?”

Khloe hasn’t yet filed a lawsuit or police report, but, sources close to the situation tell us she’s already talked to her lawyers, claiming the friend charged tens of thousands of dollars in designer clothes to Khloe’s credit card … clothes that didn’t end up in her closet. We’re also told Khloe believes high-end designers sent her all sorts of stuff but the friend never turned it over to her.
In all, Khloe believes a small fortune was taken.

We’re told Khloe’s mulling over a lawsuit but hasn’t decided yet. Her friends are urging her not to sue, because it will ruin the friend’s career. We reached out to the friend for comment … so far, no word back.

[From TMZ]

Who would have access to Khloe’s credit card? Who would be acting as a middleman between designers and Khloe? Exactly. As I’ve said before, it would not surprise me at all if this kind of thing regularly went down with many Hollywood stylists. If I learned anything from watching The Rachel Zoe Project, it’s that the disorganization of Hollywood stylists combined with the disorganization of celebrities is ripe for this kind of fraud. There doesn’t seem to be a way for stylists, designers and celebrities to keep track of everything 100%. It seems like Monica Rose might have found a way to take “her cut.”

    And as the wheel turns Khloe then goes to another chick and steals her designs to pass off as her own in her “jeans” website.. so a thief calling a thief a thief….the world smallest violin plays on

    • Zuzus Girl says:

      Exactly. The Kardashians are known for stealing products and ideas. (See Kylies lip line.) So …pot meet kettle. Also, if this happened over a month ago, why is she just tweeting it now? Ratings.

      And crikey, her face is getting so narrow and squinty.

    • Sigh... says:

      Oxygen-stealing grifters getting grifted. Frauds getting defrauded. Users got used. In other words, nothing to see here…

    • mogul says:

      I was going to post the same thing. Let’s not forget that her sisters and her stole money from Brandy to start their Dash store and the store for their mom. #nopittyparty

      • QQ says:

        Or really, if we’re doing this, the way they love to go for their gfs dudes, which by now we must see as “a Thing” … I’m wondering who wants in on Lala’s guys TBH

    • Jeanette says:

      I was hoping they would cover this, its why I clicked on the article. I believe Khloe straight ripped her off. She is copyrighted and lawyered up so I hope she rakes her over the coals. She didnt even try to make her designs even a little different.

    • BackstageBitchy says:

      It’s also entirely possible that Khloe and her team have called in tens of thousands of dollars of clothes on a regular basis that she didn’t end up wearing, that wasn’t chosen for her look, etc.
      Maybe the designer’s people say, a year later, oh we sent you over that dress to wear for that event” and Khloe says “oh I never got it”. It’s a stylist’s job to cull through all the stuff that comes in and pick looks. You hire a stylist so you don’t have to do that yourself. It’s more than possible that Khloe doesn’t understand how all of that works, and thinks the clothes just magically appear, sorted, styled and accessorize, when she snaps her fingers.
      It’s not impossible that this stylist put stuff on Khloe’s card or under her name and used it eventually for something else, or just didn’t use it on Khloe.
      But the Ks should be pretty damn sure about actual theft before they trash this girl’s professional reputation.
      Oops, too late. They have ruined her, and what chance does she have to defend herself against Khloe’s nameless tweets?
      These people wreck lives for sport and spite.

      • Bridget says:

        The Kardashians are famous for selling their freebies on eBay. Khloe isnt mad that she missed out on wearing something, she’s mad because she wanted to sell it.

      • missskitttin says:

        Also, it was not money “stolen” per se. It was free stuff that she never got. Talk about greedy…

      • African Sun says:

        @Backstagebitchy, your name is dope 1st and foremost.

        I agree with you about Khloe not probably understanding how clothes are pulled for events, red carpets and shoots. Most celebs are loaned clothes or paid to wear them so they need to be returned at the end of the day.

  2. minx says:

    Wasted, empty life.

  3. Nancy says:

    She’s stealing a championship from the Cavs with the Kardashian Kurse so shut up and have a seat Khloe. Nobody cares so own it.

  4. littlemissnaughty says:

    This is why any normal person would never give anyone random access to their credit card without checking the monthly statements. I have access to credit cards that aren’t mine but if I charged even a gummy bear to them, people would know. I mean, keep your sh*t together. And if it’s true, just sue that person.

    • Megan says:

      This. My company gives employees credit cards. Every month I go through every single charge to ensure there are no inappropriate charges. It’s tedious, but it’s part of being in business.

    • Tiffany :) says:

      I don’t think someone of her wealth would be checking her own statements. SOMEONE should be looking over the statements and receipts, but it would probably be her business management company or at the very least an assistant or bookkeeper.

      • sienna says:

        Someone of her wealth should absolutely be checking her own statements. You really can’t trust anyone to keep an eye on your money full stop. Get someone else to organize the paperwork and then you review it, every month.

  5. Millie says:

    Yeah, I don’t feel too bad for Khloe or the other Kardashians. They stole a lot from Brandy back in the day like the users they are. I believe they stole her Amex and charged thousands upon thousands to it. The only reason it was put to an end is when Brandy’s mother took them to court and they were ordered to pay it all back.

    Karma, if what Khloe says is true.

    • Ayra. says:

      Exactly, I came in here to bring up the situation with Brandy!

    • sunnydaze says:

      Whoa, just looked up that incident – $120,000 in unauthorized charges?? Interesting follow up, apparently Norwood asked the charges be dismissed without prejudice (and she was refusing to comment), which often means it was settled out of court. Hmm….either way, all of these people owe their “empire” to the actions and accomplishments of other people.

      • me says:

        Yes it was settled out of court. Kim was Ray J and Brandy’s stylist back then. She claimed she had authority to use the credit card, but from what Brandy’s mom said, the Kardashians used the credit card to buy themselves things !

    • Pandy says:

      OMG I had never heard this before! Not that it surprises me … the Klan are bottom feeders. And seriously, are we to believe designers design clothes that would cover that fake @ss?? I’m calling BS on that story! And as for the rest – well, run your life like a business (or have your business manager run it that way). Your stylist buys you something and has to fill out a monthly credit report itemizing the charges with receipts to back it up. Klueless.

  6. lassie says:

    I used to work in the credit card business. If you give someone consent to use your card, either as an authorized user or as a one time only use, it’s not considered fraud by the credit card company. It’s your fault for not closing the account and getting a new card number reissued.

    Perhaps theft by law inforcement definition, and you can dispute the charges and take them to civil court, but by credit card defition, not fraud.

  7. Talie says:

    I actually think this happens to celebs a lot because they hand over access to all of their funds to multiple people. I remember some time ago, Kate Hudson was taken by a PA for like $50K.

    • littlemissnaughty says:

      Seriously??? I don’t understand this at all. My boss is a busy man who works about 80 hours a week and he would notice! Are they just lazy?

      • swak says:

        Lazy or have no sense when it comes to keeping track of their money. I’m probably a rare person, but I balance my checking account all time. I can’t afford not to do so. I check my one credit card all the time. Just like when they sign things without looking at the fine print.

  8. Squiggisbig says:

    I just don’t find it believable that “high end designers” were sending Khloe anything….Kendall, Kylie, or Kim I could believe. But not Khloe. She isn’t even important enough for a Met Gala invite.

  9. me says:

    The fact they aren’t actually mentioning Monica’s name makes me believe she has some really good dirt on the Kardashians. They must have come up with some sort of deal…they don’t mention her name if she doesn’t mention theirs. This family usually has no problem putting people on blast…so….

  10. Sullivan says:

    A fool and her money are soon parted.

  11. Penelope says:

    Her face is becoming unrecognizable…good gravy.

  12. Miss M says:

    Oh Khloe, how Klassy of you to go on social media to “ask” for advice… 🎻

    • CynicalAnn says:

      Yes-the middle school drama. Surely their 15 minutes must be up by now????

  13. swak says:

    This is what I hate about social media. Why are you blasting this out to the world? Can you not make a decision to take legal action without the opinion of your following? Keep it private. The world doesn’t need to know your business. Oh yeah, I forgot they need a ratings boost.

    • anonymous says:

      She’s doing this only for attention and ratings for the next season. They need new storylines.

  14. Beth says:

    I wish I had tens of thousands to begin with! Nobody can steal what I don’t have.

  15. TPOE says:

    My god she looks awful. Doesn’t her plastic surgeon have any basic human decency? If I were him I’d be screaming “No more! NO MORE!!!”

  16. Erica_V says:

    Did Chrissy Teigan also part ways with Monica?

    I was scrolling on IG the other day and on the discover page Kourtney was gushing about redoing her wardrobe with THE BEST STYLIST EVER (that’s a quote caps & all). They are so immature.

    • African Sun says:

      LMAO. Kourt is petty

    • Sarah says:

      I clicked on this story because I thought Khloe was implying this was about Monica Rose also.

      I think Chrissy still works with Monica. Chrissy tagged Monica for the Grammys on Instagram and Monica has two images of Chrissy from May on her IG. (I can’t believe I looked that up, I have no life.)

      Kim was on Andy Cohen’s show the other week and he asked her about this. Kim evaded the question and said she herself parted ways with Monica years ago. She said you’d have to ask Kylie or Khloe about their reasons, because Kim had a different reason. I didn’t quite understand Kim’s explanation; it was something about Kanye changing Kim’s look and not Monica but Monica getting the credit for it. Or vice versa.

  17. Bridget says:

    What high end designers are sending Khloe Kardashian a bunch of stuff?

  18. Ksenia says:

    Bridget: I agree…What high end designers could even IMAGINE Khloe in their clothes, much less let her actually *wear* them? I think most, if not literally all of them, would be ashamed to have her connected to their clothes.

  19. maryquitecontrary says:

    Way back in the day, I used to really like Khloe, and thought she was the most positive person in the family. She didn’t seem to fame it up. Then she just…went another direction. Maybe it was her breakup with Lamar…I don’t know. But what she has done to her face and body…she is unrecognizable from that girl back then.

    Anyway, it’s damn sad. And maybe the ONLY good thing that has come out of this soul-sucking Presidency is that people don’t really seem to notice vapid reality stars anymore.

    Except the DANGEROUS one in the White House.
