The Kardashian-Jenner family is probably the closest thing to a royal family that North America has. Think about it— they’re everywhere. You can’t open your television, scroll through social media, or flip through a magazine without seeing some trace of a Kardashian or Jenner.

And that only happens because of the crazy things their employees do for them— and sometimes it gets pretty ridiculous.
If you’re wondering about 20 of the worst things the Kardashians have ever done to their staff, you should keep reading.
