In her statement, Kim Kardashian didn’t reveal exactly why she decided to cancel the hit reality TV show. But sources told WHO, that there are a lot of factors that contributed to the decision.
Kim Kardashian wants to shield Kanye West
Other than the show’s low ratings, the coronavirus pandemic, and their failed multimillion-dollar deals, Kim also wants to protect some members of her family.
“As soon as Kanye went off the rails, Kim made the decision that none of it would be used as a storyline on the show. Kim takes her husband’s mental health very seriously and doesn’t want it exploited for ratings or good TV drama. Some things are off the table, and this one of them,” the source said.
Khloe Kardashian wants more privacy
Khloe Kardashian also, reportedly, wants to live a more private life now that her daughter, True is growing up. The reality TV star also wants to keep her relationship with Tristan Thompson more private.
After all, the basketball star previously drew flak for cheating on Khloe. But the latter was also criticized for getting back together with the person that cheated on her.
“She has already been through the wringer and accepts that some fans are always going to have their own, often negative, opinion,” a source told Us Weekly.
Kendall and Kylie have not been in ‘KUWTK’ regularly
According to The Sun, Kylie Jenner doesn’t also need to be in KUWTK because she’s earning millions through her makeup company. Jenner only made few appearances during one season because she kept her pregnancy private.
Her older sister, Kendall Jenner isn’t also regularly seen in KUWTK because she’s a working model.
Kourtney Kardashian wanted to quit ‘KUWTK’ last year
Last season, Kourtney Kardashian made headlines after she expressed her desire to quit the reality TV show a couple of times. In fact, she walked out on her sisters and argued with them in multiple episodes.
“Kourtney feels the public exposure is not really beneficial for the kids. There are already trolls that post nasty comments about the kids. She feels more and more protective,” the source told People.
Kim Kardashian, Khloe, Kris Jenner emotional
According to reports, the Kardashian-Jenner clan wanted time to focus on their family, their projects, and their future. And the best way to do this is to end Keeping Up With the Kardashians.
Momager Kris Jenner told Ryan Seacrest that she, Kim Kardashian, and Khloe all became a tad bit emotional while working out. They all looked at each other and couldn’t believe what a ride it has been.
