As fans are getting ready to say goodbye to Keeping Up With The Kardashians, we have come across some startling news. A source has alleged that the show is drawing the curtains as Kris Jenner fears Kanye West may cause “irreversible damage” to the brand. As per reports in The Sun, “(Kris Jenner) needed to pull the plug before he does irreversible damage to her brand.”
The report also claimed that the rapper “tried to constantly fight with Kris over production and the direction that the show is going.” The source added that Kris wasn’t “about to let anybody take the reins.” Another report calls this news fake.
As per a Page Six news piece, Kanye West has no role to play in the decision of ending Keeping Up With The Kardashians. The source informed the portal. “We’re also exclusively — and emphatically — told that Kanye West’s mental health played no role in the decision to go off the air. West has struggled publicly over the last few months with his bipolar disorder, prompting wife Kim to come out in his defence as he worked to get better.”
Kim wrote a long and emotional post on Instagram, announcing the news of the show going off-air.
