After the closure of the Kardashian and Jenner sisters’ apps, we’re told tabloid vet Jen Garcia is being airlifted out and into another part of the family’s empire.
Other staff members are looking for new jobs, sources said.
Garcia has been tight with the family since she was an editor at People; she quit her job as deputy news editor to join Whale Rock Industries, which produced the sisters’ apps and Web sites until last week’s announcement that they’re folding.
Now Garcia’s being relocated.
Meanwhile, we hear, the rest of the staff sent out e-mails telling contacts they were “moving on.” We hear they’re getting severance.
Insiders said the sisters haven’t reached out to staff, but they’ve heard from them “indirectly.”
We’re told the sisters were “so over” the apps, which weren’t getting the subscriptions or advertising to make “as much money as they wanted to.”
“None of the sisters were putting in much work on it,” said an insider, “and they make so much more from other things.”
They launched the apps in 2015.
Garcia and reps for the Kardashians didn’t get back to us.
