The Real Reason ‘Keeping Up With The Kardashians’ Is Ending Is Revealed

Earlier this week, fans were stunned when Kim Kardashian announced that her family’s reality television show “Keeping Up With The Kardashians” was ending after being on the air since 2007. Now, it appears that the reason behind the end of the show has been revealed.

A source told The Sun that family matriarch Kris Jenner decided to end the show after her daughters Kim Kardashian and Kylie Jenner threatened to leave it.

“The family have been locked in an ongoing debate over the future of the show for months now,” the source alleged. “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.”

As for Kylie, the 23 year-old feels like she earns enough from her other business ventures that she doesn’t need to sacrifice her privacy by appearing on the show anymore.

“Kylie is making billions of dollars through her makeup line and product endorsements,” the insider added. “She doesn’t need the show, and like Kendall, has always struggled with fame and being in the spotlight. Filming the show meant having to be in LA with her family, now she is free to fly off on holiday, or follow Travis Scott on his next tour.”

This comes days after Kim announced that the show is ending, with the final season set to come out in 2021.

“To our amazing fans, It is with heavy hearts that we’ve made the difficult decision as a family to say goodbye to ‘Keeping Up with the Kardashians,'” she wrote on Instagram. “After what will be 14 years, 20 seasons, hundreds of episodes and numerous spin-off shows, we are beyond grateful to all of you who’ve watched us for all of these years – through the good times, the bad times, the happiness, the tears, and the many relationships and children. We’ll forever cherish the wonderful memories and countless people we’ve met along the way.”

“Without ‘Keeping Up with The Kardashians,’ I wouldn’t be where I am today,” she later 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. With Love and Gratitude, Kim.”
