Kim Kardashian fired her publicist and sources say that Kanye West was behind the move. The reality television star parted ways with Jill Fritzo whom her family have used for many years. On Sept. 16, MSN reported that Kim has hired PR to the stars Ina Treciokas. The move is professional but it's unknown if any part of it was personal. Many thought that Kim had a great relationship with her rep -- so hopefully this was just a career move and nothing personal... especially because Jill will still be working for the Kardashians in some capacity (presumably).
"Kim wants to set herself apart from the Kardashian PR machine, and Kanye West advised her to build her own team," said an insider.
Kim Kardashian and her new publicist don't have too much in common and while Treciokas has worked with high profile celebs including Justin Theroux and Sarah Jessica Parker, she doesn't have any clients quite like Kim K. It's hard to say whether or not this is a good thing or a bad thing but it does seem like their working relationship will be very professional; something that Kanye would support.
Since Kim started dating Kanye, she seems a bit more grown up -- like she's looking at life differently. This may also have to do with her becoming a mother. Her change in publicist isn't a huge ordeal -- but since she's branching away from the "Kardashian way," it's just another sign that her life with Kanye is changing her.
Kim Kardashian's publicist already missed the bombshell of Kim's previous divorce drama so maybe things won't be too crazy for her in the future.
