Kim Kardashian has set the record straight enough for workers who clamed that the reality TV star is owing them wages to know by now that suing her amounts to suing the wrong person.

During an “Ask me anything” section on Instagram, Kim replied to a fan who asked if she pays her workers saying, she was not the one responsible for the employees payment, addressing a lawsuit filed against her by seven grounds keepers.

“Absolutely, I respect people for their time and their hard work and unfortunately these workers are suing the wrong person,” the reality star claimed. “I paid the vendor, and it’s their job to pay their staff. I hope that they are able to get this resolved soon.”

They’re also claiming that Kim withheld money for taxes and never sent it to the government. Meanwhile, one 16-year-old former employee says he was made to work far past the 48 allowable hours for an underage summer employee.

The plaintiffs are being represented by Frank Kim of law firm Kim Legal, who told The Daily Mail that, “Wage theft and other workplace violations are a widespread problem in Los Angeles. My firm is currently investigating other potential violations against these defendants, as well as other powerful families and businesses on behalf of everyday workers.”

Meanwhile, a spokesperson for Kim Kardashian said that the employees should take up their issue with the vendor who hired them directly.

“These workers were hired and paid through a third-party vendor hired by Kim to provide ongoing services. Kim is not party to the agreement made between the vendor and their workers, therefore she is not responsible for how the vendor manages their business and the agreements they have made directly with their staff.

“Kim has never not paid a vendor for their services and hopes that the issue between these workers and the vendor who hired them can be amicably resolved soon.”
