Kanye and Kris have had a tense relationship in the past where the rapper referred to her as the North Korean leader and called her 'Kris Jong-Un' and also criticized her parenting
We will soon miss the highly-rated reality show, ‘Keeping Up with The Kardashians’. E!’s stalwart show, which premiered in 2007, is now coming to an end as announced by media mogul Kim Kardashian in a press statement on September 8 on her social media that reads: "It is with heavy hearts that we’ve made the difficult decision as a family to say goodbye to Keeping Up with the Kardashians."
She wrote, "After what will be 14 years, 20 seasons, hundreds of episodes and numerous spin-off shows, we are beyond grateful to all of you who’ve watched us for all of these years – through the good times, the bad times, the happiness, the tears, and the many relationships and children. We’ll forever cherish the wonderful memories and countless people we’ve met along the way." She continued thanking her fans, "Thank you to the thousands of individuals and businesses that have been a part of this experience and, most importantly, a very special thank you to Ryan Seacrest for believing in us, E! for being our partner, and our production team at Bunim/Murray, who’ve spent countless hours documenting our lives. Our last season will air early next year in 2021."
She added in her post, "Without Keeping Up with The Kardashians, I wouldn’t be where I am today. I am so incredibly grateful to everyone who has watched and supported me and my family these past 14 incredible years. This show made us who we are and I will be forever in debt to everyone who played a role in shaping our careers and changing our lives forever. With Love and Gratitude."
After the media mogul and the clan’s most popular face revealed this for her "amazing fans", it was reported by CNN that the official statement was signed by matriarch Kris Jenner, Kourtney Kardashian, Kim Kardashian West, Khloé Kardashian, Rob Kardashian, Kendall Jenner, Kylie Jenner and Scott Disick.
Did Kanye make Kris Jenner leave KUWTK?
Since the news of the show coming to an end made headlines, fans are speculating various theories about what could be the reason behind the sudden pack-up of the show. Some people on the internet are of the opinion that Kim’s husband and rapper Kanye West irked her mother Kris Jenner. Kanye and Kris have reportedly had tensed relations in the past. Mirror UK reported that after Kanye's erratic outburst at the presidential rally, some fans believe momager Kris is the person whom the rapper referred to as the North Korean leader labeling her "Kris Jong-Un". Further, the site reported that he savagely lambasted her parenting, recalling the time in 2007 where Kim did a Playboy photoshoot with mum Kris as her manager.
Mirror UK reported that it is possible, based on information revealed by sources, that Kanye was done with Kris' behavior and it's "something he'll no longer tolerate". The site added that Kanye has put a stop to let cameras peek into their personal lives after his ongoing issues with Kris. "Kanye is convinced Kim's mother Kris has got it in for him and that she's the main source of all their problems," a source revealed as reported by Mirror UK. "He accepts things with Kim need a lot of fixing and he admits he's no saint in some areas, but ultimately, his biggest beef is with Kris. Whether Kris and Kanye's reportedly tense relationship is the main reason behind the show coming to an end is not yet confirmed but fans were quick to state that Kris canceled the show because of Kanye.
Some feel Kanye's political aspirations could be the reason for the show ending. Others say maybe Kris wanted to save Kim and Kanye’s marriage first and therefore canceled the show. A fan wrote, "What if @KrisJenner canceled #KUWTK because Kanye had such crazy dirt on her, she had to cancel it."
Others concurred, “Maybe Kris Jenner didn't like Kanye calling her Kris Jong Un and wants to call it a day."

Some speculated that maybe Kanye and his mother-in-law will make another show tapping in his interest in the presidential race. "New spin-off? Kanye and mother-in-law Kris Jong Un take on the White House?”

Some commented on Kanye’s political aspirations as a reason for irking Kris. "I'm sure Kris Jenner is embarrassed about Kanye and his political aspirations/collaboration with the Trump campaign (and predict Kim / Kanye divorce so this timing suits both) #kardashians."

Some feel Kanye and Kim’s torn marriage is the reason. "Heartbroken @KrisJenner did you do this to save @kanyewest and Kimmie’s marriage? there’s no other logical explanation."
What will Kris do now?
The show made the Kardashian-Jenner clan megastars in the world of entertainment and fetched them numerous lucrative business ventures, including fashion and beauty lines and a mobile video game. However, fans are now left wondering what Kris Jenner, the matriarch, will do to bring back the family in the spotlight. From making plans for a new TV show for her grandchildren to running a political campaign for Kanye, fans have cited hilarious reasons. A fan wrote, "Yay! I’m glad. What is Kris Jenner gonna SELL now? Making plans for a tv show featuring her grandkids? I DON’T quite see Kanye West going along with that. Maybe Kylie, Kourtney & Khloe’s kid(s). I hope this is really the end of The Kardashian’s on tv."

Another predicted a different plan for Kris. "Kris Jenner is either planning to run a political campaign for one of her clan or a prosperity gospel evangelical Church with Kanye. $$$."

Another concurred, “Kris Jenner is already getting on the job as Kanye’s presidential campaign manager now that #KUWTK is over.”
Some came up with various options for her. "Kris Jenner considering her options 1) make a s*x tape 2) adopt some children and create a new show 3) become Kanye’s campaign manager 4) take a year or two off to actually count my money #KrisJenner."
