Joyce Bonelli, the woman behind the Kardashian-Jenner clan’s signature makeup for more than a decade, has reportedly been fired by the family.

An unnamed source reported to Us Weekly that “the family doesn’t speak to her anymore,” and that “she hasn’t worked for them for months.” The 37-year-old makeup artist has been a longtime family friend, contouring and cut-creasing the girls’ famous faces even before KUWTK was a household name. “We text every other day and we talk about everything,” Bonelli told the Hollywood Reporter last June. “Even if I’m working with a different client we’re always talking and FaceTiming—we talk about kids, we talk about the fun, scandalous stuff. They’re like my sisters.” Bonelli even reportedly stopped doing Caitlyn Jenner’s makeup upon KKW’s request back in 2016.

And while US Weekly‘s same source reported that the split was amicable, a thorough probe of Instagram suggests otherwise. For starters, everyone in the Kardashian-Jenner family appears to have unfollowed Joyce Bonelli (who has 2.1 million other followers to fill the void) on Instagram. From Kim, to Kris, and all the way down to Khloé‘s BFF Malika Haqq, anyone with the last name Kardashian or Jenner tapped the blue “unfollow” button (with a perfectly manicured finger, no doubt).

But the Bonelli Boycott™ appears to be one sided. Just yesterday, Bonelli posted a birthday tribute to Khloé Kardashian on Instagram. The post comes one day after Kardashian’s actual birthday, which is June 27.

Kardashian was tagged in the photo and caption of the up-close-and-personal shot bearing her world famous backside, but she neither liked nor commented on the post. In fact, out of the 40,000+ likes the photo received, none of them appear to have come from a Kardashian-Jenner.

While Bonelli may have been amicably relieved of her professional duties, social media appears to point out that the same may not be true of Bonelli’s friendship with the Kardashian-Jenners. Why? Bonelli’s new makeup line, Joyce Bonelli Cosmétiques, is rumored to have driven a wedge in her relationship with the family. The line has yet to be released (or given a website), but Bonelli has been teasing a 2018 launch on Instagram since September of last year.

The line will no doubt compete with Kim Kardashian’s KKW Beauty line and Kylie Jenner’s $420 million makeup empire, Kylie Cosmetics (and its subsequent brand partnerships with sisters Khloe, Kim, and Kourtney, plus Kris Jenner’s “Momager” collection).
