'KUWTK' ending: Khloe pregnancy beats Kim-Ray J sex tape as most Googled Kardashian scandal of all time
'Keeping Up With The Kardashians' will be coming to an end with 20 seasons spanning over 14 years with the final season airing in early 2021. With all the scandals surrounding Kim Kardashian and her family, it was hard to keep up with it all even for the most die-hard fans of the show. Nevertheless, it has been a good run, and now its time to see which scandal of the family broke the Internet the most!
The scandal which put the spotlight on the Kardashian-Jenner clan and thrust Kim into infamy (which she and her mother, Kris Jenner, capitalized on and eventually built an entertainment empire on) was the sex tape with the KKW Beauty mogul's ex-boyfriend, rapper Ray J. To this day both sides blame the other side for leaking the infamous tape which originally broke the Internet in February 2007 when social media was still in its beginning phase.
However, according to SEMrush, a data trends analytics company, the popularity of the sex tape remained unparalleled among the 'KUWTK' scandals over the years till Khloe's pregnancy became the most searched on Google, beating the tape. This is not surprising as Khloe was the only one without a child of her own when both of her elder sisters, Kim and Kourtney, had more than one child of their own. Khloe had mentioned in the show that she longed for children of her own and hence when she did become pregnant in 2018 with her ex-boyfriend, Tristan Thomson's baby, fans were thrilled. What followed - with Tristan caught cheating on his baby mama twice during Khloe's pregnancy, one of them with the former best friend of Khloe's younger sister, Kylie - only helped to catapult the interest in her pregnancy even further.
Some of the other scandals that created popular search terms, according to Google data, were "Kim Kardashian black face", "Kim Kardashian and Taylor Swift (feud)", "Scott Disick rehab" and "Kylie Jenner’s lip fillers".
When it comes to the most popular couple on the show, there are no prizes for guessing that Kim and Kanye West take the cake. They have been responsible for creating controversies not only on the show but also outside of the show, the most recent one being the exposure of their marital troubles after the rapper experienced a bipolar breakdown following the announcement of his presidential bid this year on July 4 and going on to reveal that the couple almost aborted their first child, North, at a campaign rally and calling momager Kris Jenner a "White supremacist" on Twitter. Some of the other popular couples include Rob Kardashian and Blac Chyna, Scott Disick and Sofia Richie, Tristan Thompson and Khloe, and Kylie Jenner and Tyga.
As for the most searched members of the clan, Kylie sat on top of the list, followed by Kim, Khloe, Kendall and Kourtney. The news of the show ending was announced by Kim on September 8. On Instagram, she wrote “To our amazing fans - It is with heavy hearts that we’ve made the difficult decision as a family to say goodbye to Keeping Up with the Kardashians. 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.”
