KIM Kardashian gifted her former assistant Stephanie Shepherd a Hermes Kelly bag worth a whopping $25,000.
The KUWTK star, 40, gave her tearful BFF the luxury mini-tote to celebrate her 32nd birthday in a sweet gesture.
Stephanie burst into tears as she opened Hermes’ iconic orange box to find the luxury bag inside.
“This is so crazy,” she squealed as she sobbed and threw her arms around Kim.
The SKIMS founder protested, “Don’t cry, don’t cry! Just wear it in good health,” as they embraced.
The duo were surrounded by Stephanie’s closest friends and family, who cheered at her reaction.
Stephanie shrieked, crying, “This is so nice!” as Kim joked: “Don’t drop a tear on the bag!”
The reality star’s BFF then confessed she’d been considering getting a fake version of the pricey bag, admitting: “Oh my God, I was going to buy a knock off.
“I saw the knock off and was like ‘Do you think anyone would know?'”
Stephanie posted the emotional video on her Instagram Stories on Sunday and captioned it: “Your loyalty and generosity for your friends and family is unmatched.”
The Hermes Noir Black Epsom Sellier Kelly 28 bag sells for $24,999.00, as per an ebay listing, with knock-offs retailing at around $3,000.
Kim hired Stephanie as her personal assistant in 2013 and eventually made her Chief Operating Officer of all Kardashian West Brands.
The mother-of-four let her go in 2017, after she confessed to Kim’s sister Kourtney that she was feeling “unfulfilled career-wise”.
Despite this, Stephanie has remained a key member of Kim’s inner circle and is also close friends with Kourtney.
She starred in several SKIMS ads with Kim last month and has also written articles for Kourtney’s lifestyle website Poosh.
She is dating Apple Music’s head of content Larry Jackson, who is a friend of Kim’s ex Kanye West.
Kim filed for divorce from Kanye in February after seven years of marriage.
They share four kids together – North, eight, Saint, five, Chicago, three, and Psalm, two.
Earlier this month, The Sun exclusively revealed that Kanye “cheated” on her with an “A-list singer”.
Shortly after Kanye, 44, admitted to cheating on Kim during their marriage, a source close to the family exclusively told The Sun that the affair was with a household name.
The informant claimed: “Kanye cheated on Kim with an A-list singer.
“At the time it happened, Kanye was mainly living in his bachelor pad in Hollywood because it was closer to his studio and he wasn’t going to go home to Kim and newborn baby when he’d been partying late in the studio.”
The insider continued to allege: “That was a really rough time for them.
“Kim wasn’t feeling herself – the breastfeeding, the extra weight, the baby in the bedroom, the early morning exercise routines and juice diets – and Kanye was out late a lot.”
The affair allegedly put a lot of stress on the E! star, as the source claimed: “It was tough on Kim because she’d just given birth, was struggling and thought it was all because of how she looked – it put a lot of pressure on her at a time when she was at her most vulnerable.”
The allegations come after Kanye admitted to cheating on Kim in his new song Hurricane, which is featured on the album Donda.
