KRIS Jenner “pulled the plug” on Keeping Up With The Kardashians over fears that Kanye West was causing “irreversible damage” to their brand, The Sun can exclusively report.
Family sources close to the momager said she had “had enough” of her daughter Kim Kardashian’s unpredictable husband.
The insider claimed the rapper had “tried to constantly fight with Kris over production and the direction that the show is going.”
But headstrong Kris “was not about to let anybody take the reins.”
In recent months, Kanye battled a public mental health breakdown and shocked fans by sharing intimate details of his marriage and family life.
The source admitted that his behavior had become “uncontrollable,” and Kris knew she “needed to pull the plug before he does irreversible damage to her brand.”
“He’s become a loose cannon and she cannot tolerate it anymore.”
A separate source close to the family insisted this is “absolutely false.”
As The Sun previously reported, Kanye called mother-in-law Kris a “white supremacist” and “Kris Jong-un” in a series of tweets, and claimed he had previously tried to divorce Kim.
At a campaign rally for his presidential bid in July, he even alleged Kim had almost aborted their eldest daughter North.
Though he apologized for his comments, he later doubled down and repeated the abortion story on Nick Cannon’s podcast.
The rapper shares 7-year-old North, 4-year-old Saint, 2-year-old Chicago and 1-year-old Psalm with wife Kim.
While Kim tried to help the rapper, who has bipolar disorder, he had been resistant- and according to a source, vindictive.
An insider said Kanye told Kim, 39, he would “live stream” any attempt by her to “lock him up” following his claims she tried to get him hospitalized.
A source added: “He’s told her that if the Kardashian family try and stage an intervention he’ll live stream it on Twitter and ‘show the world the truth.'”
In addition to problems with Kanye, Kris believed the show “really started to divide her family- and that is the last thing she wanted.”
“They are all leading separate lives. Kourtney cannot stand any of them, Kim has become power-hungry, Kanye is reckless, Kendall wants nothing to do with it, Kylie feels like her privacy is constantly invaded, and Kris is just flat-out tired.
“Kris just called an end to it before any further damage could be done to her family and the lives of her grandkids.”
The family had been locked in an ongoing debate over the future of the show for months, a second source previously told The Sun.
“Kim has all the drama with Kanye going on…Kylie is making billions of dollars through her make-up line and product endorsements and doesn’t need the show. And like Kendall, she has always struggled with fame and being in the spotlight.
Oldest sister Kourtney quit the show last year after a physical catfight with sister Kim on camera, telling a magazine: “I was feeling unfulfilled and it became a toxic environment for me to continue to have it occupy as much of my life as it was.”
She returned to filming earlier this year – but insiders say she’s “glad it’s over” and had been clear she no longer wanted to be involved.
Kim confirmed on Tuesday that the show was ending in 2021 after 14 years.
The mom of four shared the news on Instagram, writing “it is with heavy hearts” that they made the “difficult decision as a family to say goodbye to Keeping Up with the Kardashians.”
The new season of KUWTK premieres on September 17.
