Keeping Up With The Kardashians is coming to an end after 14 years on air and 20 seasons. Reports indicate that Kris Jenner has decided to end the show after three of her daughters threatened to quit. The 64-year old decided to end the show after Kim Kardashian, 39, Kourtney Kardashian, 41, and Kylie Jenner, 23, said they want to quit the show.
Sources close to the matter indicate that Khloe Kardashian, 36, and Scott Disick, 37 arent happy with the end of the show, which is expected to come of-air early next year.
The Kardashians are shifting to social media branding
Other sources indicate that the show is coming to an end as the Kardashians focus on their social media branding. Sources indicate that the brand has been growing more on social media on TV. This could be true as the Kardashians have amassed millions of followers on social media platforms. This has enabled them to explore alternative business ventures.
Over time, social media has replaced what the show used to offer. The millions of followers they command on social media outweigh their TV viewers. In addition, sources close to the show intimated that the show has been dropping in ratings.
There has been an ongoing debate in the family on whether to continue the show or end it before they finally concluded to halt its production.
In addition, the drama going on between Kim and Kanye is the reason for Kim to call it a quit. The star has been involved in many drama and divorce rumors in the recent past and her husband’s mental issues.
During his campaign launch, the rapper and presidential aspirant went on a rant talking about private matters with his wife. He went to expose how he wanted to terminate the pregnancy for the firstborn, but his wife declined. The exposé was followed with drama and infighting that saw Kanye withdraw to his ranch in Wyoming.
However, Kim and Kanye had a reunion before proceeding on a family vacation. The two were first spotted together after Kim went to the ranch to seek a divorce in what was described as a very emotional encounter.
