After nearly 14 years of being on our screens and changing what reality television is, it was announced last week that the Kardashian-Jenners would be hanging up their reality show hats.
In a statement posted to her Instagram and Twitter pages, Kim Kardashian said, “It is with heavy hearts that we’ve made the difficult decision as a family to say goodbye to Keeping Up With The Kardashians.”
However, behind-the-scenes it’s been reported by The Sun momager Kris Jenner was the one who pulled the plug to end the series as both Kim and the youngest Kardashian-Jenner Kylie decided they were going to quit the show regardless.
“The family have been locked in an ongoing debate over the future of the show for months now,” a source told the outlet. “Kim has all the drama with Kanye West going on.
“He’s refusing to put anything personal on the show, and it’s increasingly difficult for Kim to find time to film the show.”

Meanwhile, 23-year-old Kylie was ready to leave the show as she’s making plenty of money through endorsements and her beauty brands Kylie Cosmetics and Kylie Skin. In fact, she and older sister Kendall have reportedly “always struggled with fame and being in the spotlight”.
According to the report, it’s only Khloe Kardashian and Scott Disick who have been struggling with the announcement that the show would be ending.
In Kim’s statement announcing the end of the show, she confirmed that the last season of KUWTK would air early next year.
“Without Keeping Up with The Kardashians, I wouldn’t be where I am today,” she added. “I am so incredibly grateful to everyone who has watched and supported me and my family these past 14 incredible years.
“This show made us who we are and I will be forever in debt to everyone who played a role in shaping our careers and changing our lives forever.”
