The Kardashian-Jenner family announced that ‘Keeping Up with the Kardashians’ is ending after 14 years and 20 seasons earlier this week.
Since the announcement, it has been reported that the family is taking some time off to figure out what’s next and there are even rumors of a big streaming deal on the horizon.
The family’s statement suggests they were simply tired of reality TV, but subsequent reports allege E! simply couldn’t afford to keep them any longer.
Now, it’s being reported that both Kim Kardashian and Kylie Jenner were the first to pull out — which prompted Kris Jenner to pull the plug.

“The family have been locked in an ongoing debate over the future of the show for months now,” the source claimed. “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 reportedly feels as if she earns enough cash through her several business ventures, and is no longer willing to sacrifice her privacy for a paycheck.
“Kylie is making billions of dollars through her makeup line and product endorsements,” the source 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.”
Eldest sibling Kourtney Kardashian ditched the show back in March, calling its filming environment “toxic.” Khloe Kardashian and Scott Disick are reportedly the only cast members upset by the cancellation, with Kris recently sharing that the Good American founder has been crying over the news for days.
They’ll all be alright — show or no show.
