Khloe Kardashian Sued By Former Household Assistant Over Unpaid Wages

Media Take Out Staff |

Khloé Kardashian has been sued by one of her former household assistants for allegedly owing him money before firing him.

The plaintiff, Matthew Manhard claimed says Khloe fired him when he returned to work after having a knee injury. He says he worked for Khloe between January 2019 and November 2022 and that she gave him so many tasks to complete while working with her that it interfered with his ability to take legally required breaks. She also says the star failed to pay him overtime even when he worked 12 hours in a day.

Manhard is seeking compensatory damages for unpaid wages and other employee benefits with interest and unspecified punitive damages because Kardashian acted with “oppression, fraud, malice, and in conscious disregard of Manhard’s rights,” the suit says.

Khloe denies the allegations.

“It’s unfortunate to learn that a former employee would choose to go this route,” a legal rep for Kardashian told TMZ. “Matthew was properly classified and compensated for his role.”

The rep added: “Toward the end of his employment, he was on a leave of absence for an extended period of time and the role eventually needed to be replaced. We will not tolerate false accusations and will prove that this is a frivolous lawsuit.”
