Former Kardashian makeup artist Joyce Bonelli has hit out at the famous family after supposedly being fired.

According to reports, Kim and co parted ways with Joyce after deciding she was no longer ‘the right fit’.

“The family doesn't speak to her anymore. She hasn't worked with them for months. The decision was made amicably. They just stopped working with her because they didn't see it as a right fit anymore,” a source told Us Weekly magazine.

To add insult to injury, all of the Kardashians have unfollowed the makeup artist on Instagram. Ouch.

However, Joyce has hit back at the family with a social media slam of her own.

She shared a photo on Instagram of her wearing a dressing gown emblazoned with the words: “F*ck with me, I DARE YOU.”

Just last year, Joyce referred to the Kardashian-Jenner clan as her ‘sisters’.

“I’ve been with the girls for so long and we’ve been through so much. It’s been over a decade. We’ve known each other since the beginning, before they were famous,” she told Hollywood Reporter.

She added: “We text every other day and we talk about everything. 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.”

This comes days after Kim Kardashian dropped the absolute bombshell that she no longer likes taking selfies.

Kim was the self-confessed queen of selfies and even released a book of her very own collection of selfies called Selfish.

Kim captioned this pic 'Found this pic I took in the bathroom on set of My @calvinklein shoot,' but fans were quick to spot - you guessed it - a wobbly wall.

But speaking on This Morning, she said: "I don't take selfies anymore, I don't really like them. It's not all about sitting there taking selfies.

"I just would like to live in real time a little bit more, I don't mind pictures, but I'm just not on my phone the way that I used to be."
