Celebrity Secrets: What Housekeepers and Assistants Revealed About Their Famous Employers

Celebrity Secrets: What Housekeepers and Assistants Revealed About Their Famous Employers

As the saying goes, “loose lips sink ships.” Celebrity secrets must be carefully guarded to avoid leaks to the press. And their home staff are the ones who have the most insider knowledge of what goes on in a celebrity home behind closed doors.

Kim’s Cleaner

By how pristine their houses look on their Hulu series “The Kardashians,” you would think that Kim Kardashian was a neat freak. But if you were to ask her housekeepers, they would have a different story to tell. I guess what we don’t see that’s not caught on camera are Kim’s private quarters, like her bedroom, bathroom, and closet.

One of her former housekeepers said Kim’s bedroom and bathroom were beyond filthy at all times. She has clothes everywhere, and she refuses to hang anything up herself. Another housekeeper also said that Kim requested brand new, crisp, and clean white silk sheets every single day for her and her family.

Every single morning, her white sheets would be covered in makeup, and her sheets would be brown. She never washed her face, said the housekeeper. I guess this proves there is more than meets the eye.

Kourtney’s staff

Another Kardashian was deceived by her staff. Kourtney’s staff, from her nannies to her housekeepers, spilled all the tea.

They revealed that Kourtney is on the opposite side of the tidy spectrum than Kim and that Kourtney is a control and neat freak. Her nannies say that the Poosh founder was the most rude and unappreciative person in the family.

“So I spent two hours calling my team to like check in and like see how everything’s doing.” They say she’s the worst to work for and that she micromanaged them and even told staff that she didn’t want them wearing any perfume.

Another housekeeper was quoted saying, “She was crazy. She was always looking for ways to save money, which was really annoying because of how rich they are. One time, she called two different grocery stores to compare the price of a chicken. Who does that? It’s gonna be professional because they’re all crossing major boundaries.”

JLo chauffeur

Jennifer Lopez’s chauffeur got tired of taking Jenny around the block. After starting as Jennifer Lopez’s personal driver in 2005, he was finally elevated to full-time staff member in 2011 and appointed as her director of security and transportation. With the new title was supposed to come a higher wage.

The driver said that he had an annual salary arrangement with Lopez of $72,000, with the possibility of earning an additional $200,000 in production pay. But the production money never materialized, and he continued to disclose that he was compelled to resign due to unbearable working conditions, including working more than 40 hours a week and not being permitted to take sufficient breaks for meals.

He filed a lawsuit against JLo for breach of contract and wrongful termination. Lopez filed a countersuit with a whopping $20 million that eventually got dismissed in 2012.

JLo’s flight attendant

Jennifer Lopez’s diva antics apparently extend to service workers who aren’t directly employed by her. It seems that she only communicates through her aides and doesn’t interact with salespeople, employees of hotels or restaurants, or flight attendants.

This assertion was supported by a United Airlines flight attendant who related an event to Lopez. The airline employee claimed, “I just said, ‘What can I get you to drink?’ but Jennifer refused to even acknowledge me.”

She then turned to face her personal assistant, who said, “Please tell him I’d like a Diet Coke and lime.” She refused to even give me a brief look.

Ariana’s assistant

When Ariana Grande doesn’t want to walk, she gets carried, at least according to her former assistants. They say Ariana likes to be carried from the stage to her car after she’s finished rehearsals.

While the singer has clapped back at this notion and stated that she has been carried because her feet were bleeding, that hasn’t stopped the rumor mill from churning. Grande decided to poke fun at the rumor when she appeared on James Corden’s Carpool Karaoke.

When the duo stopped for Starbucks, Grande hopped on Corden’s back and exclaimed to the barista, “Hello, I’m Ariana Grande. I must be carried. Did you know I demand to be carried everywhere? If you see me anywhere, it’s because I didn’t walk there myself, I promise.”

Kristen’s cleaner

According to Kristen Stewart’s former housekeeper, she smokes like a chimney. Although smoking is a bad habit, the celebrity’s smoking in her own house knows no bounds. She’s accused of leaving her cigarette butts wherever it’s convenient and lighting one up whenever she wants.

A former house cleaner said, “She smokes like a chimney and leaves cigarette butts everywhere—in the shower, in potted plants, and once I found one in the fridge. Not only is that gross, it’s super dangerous.”

JLo’s former staff

Back at it again with JLo.

According to former staff workers, JLo is cheap—so cheap that she gained the nickname Halo. She really pays her housekeepers significantly less than the going wage while yet expecting them to provide a high caliber of care that maintains her property immaculate. Several of her former personal employees have come forward to claim that the performer only pays them half of what they would get from other employers.

Jennifer Lopez and Ben Affleck were in Vegas in 2003. Affleck won big and tipped the dealer two thousand dollars. Before he could collect the tip, JLo swapped it for 200. Jennifer’s explanation for low pay: everyone should work hard for money as she did. “It’s not just I work hard that I put in harder work than everybody else. I work harder and harder and harder.”

Ryan’s housekeepers

Ryan Gosling’s housekeepers have reported some strange behavior from the star. According to his staff, the actor has a few quirks that are a bit childlike. First off, he’s been seen crawling up the stairs on all fours.

Second, employees say the actor isn’t a regular sleeper. It is said that he likes to sleep with his head at the foot of the bed and his feet where the pillow usually is.

Miley’s former housekeepers

According to some of Miley Cyrus’s former housekeepers, she certainly isn’t a model employer, and she apparently doesn’t mind dog poop.

The pop star’s pets, the majority of which aren’t housebroken, complicate the housekeepers’ task even more than just maintaining her enormous estate. Some of Miley Cyrus’s former staff members claim that the singer is against potty training her pets.

A source went on to say that because of the lack of obedience and training, Cyrus’s dogs had multiple accidents inside the house. According to reports, six dogs and a pig used her home as a toilet when she lived in an apartment.

A housekeeper said, “It’s hard to believe how untidy her apartment is. Miley loves having six dogs or more, including a pig. It’s like a zoo. Sorry, guys, I know it’s getting kind of gross, but this is just the way I am.” It got to a point where Miley’s mansion would begin to smell.

With as much money as she makes, you’d think she would hire a dog trainer.

The Beckham’s nanny

In 2005, David and Victoria Beckham fired their nanny after she was cited in a seven-page report by NewsWorld claiming to have witnessed the couple arguing frequently.

She was quoted saying, “One night I woke and heard them arguing on the landing and heard David call Victoria a bad name.” The nanny continued, revealing that Victoria had confided in her at one point, stating that the Spice Girl had cried to her and asked for advice. It was reported that the nanny had resigned a month before the Beckhams sued her for breach of confidence.

David Beckham clarified the situation publicly, emphasizing that their disagreements were a normal part of their lives. He stated in a publication, “We are normal people, although people might not think that. Of course, we have arguments like everybody, but at the end of the day, I know that I love my wife.”

Selena’s personal assistant

According to former housekeepers and staff, Selena Gomez is quite the slob. According to Selena’s personal assistant, she was always picking up after her. Housekeepers described her home as messy, with clothing and makeup thrown around for them to clean up.

Her former assistant said Selena could trash a hotel room like none other. “I’ve never thought someone could make such a mess out of a hotel room in less than 24 hours,” the assistant remarked, noting makeup stains and fast food wrappers everywhere. “It was pretty gross.”

Angelina’s housekeepers

Angelina Jolie usually looks like the picture-perfect mom when seen in photographs and magazines with her brood of six kids. But according to her former housekeepers, they say that her parenting skills aren’t all they’re cracked up to be.

Reportedly, Angelina is allegedly clueless about handling her child’s tantrums. She’s been accused of laughing at her kids’ tantrums or just silently staring at them while they cry.

Other nannies and housekeepers have accused her of letting the kids run the house, with them accusing her house of typically having Pizza boxes and additional junk food strewn all over the floor,  crayon and toothpaste on the walls.

Taylor’s staff

Taylor Swift’s staff have accused her of being a crazy cat lady. Her staff has said that Taylor has cat memorabilia all around her home, and that they have to dust and clean all of it.

The singer also owns several cats of her own, and according to the staff, they have to deal with all of the cat hairs that make their way into food, fabrics, and sometimes even their own houses. They also say that Taylor not only feeds her cats but she feeds the neighborhood strays as well.

Serena’s housekeepers

Serena Williams not only requires her housekeepers to keep her home in order and clean but forced a past housekeeper to watch every one of her tennis matches on TV.

According to Serena, she wanted feedback on her game and felt she could trust the employee to tell her the truth. However, the housekeeper accused her of only looking for praise.

Reese’s staff

If you were to work as a celebrity housekeeper, Reese Witherspoon is apparently the employer to have. Unlike the other celebrities we’ve covered that are sloppy, ungrateful, demanding, or have weird quirks, Reese makes all of her housekeepers and staff feel loved and appreciated.

She is rumored to provide her staff members everything. Even some of Reese’s old clothes, valued about two hundred thousand dollars, were given to a fortunate housekeeper.
