Keeping Up With The Kardashians was cancelled after three of the stars threatened to quit, according to reports.

Kim Kardashian, 39, shocked fans across the world on Tuesday night when she announced her family's reality show would be ending after 14 years.

But it is now believed that the star of the show threatened to quit alongside two of her sisters.

Kanye West's wife Kim, Kourtney, 41, and their half-sister Kylie Jenner, 23, all wanted to take a break from the show, leaving Khloe and Scott Disick "devastated".

A source close to the family said: "The family have been locked in an ongoing debate over the future of the show for months now.

"Kim has all the drama with Kanye West going on — he's refusing to put anything personal on the show, and it's increasingly difficult for Kim to find time to film the show.

"Kylie is making billions of dollars through her make-up line and product endorsements — she doesn't need the show, and like Kendall, has always struggled with fame and being in the spotlight.

"Filming the show meant having to be in LA with her family – now is free to fly off on holiday, or follow [baby daddy] Travis Scott on his next tour," the source continued to tell The Sun Online.

Kourtney quit the show last year but soon returned to filming, with the insider now adding that she is "glad it's over."

She explained last year: "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."

The friend continued: "The only people who are upset are Khloe, and Scott Disick.

"Khloe’s tried to launch several spin off shows — but none of them have been as successful as KUWTK.

"And who knows how Scott will make money now the show is being cancelled — he loves flying in private jets and being treated like an A-list star.

"I can’t see him flying commercial or paying his own way.

"The ratings have been falling for ages and they’re such huge stars, they don’t need the show to make money — but ultimately it was Kim’s decision to take a break and Kylie and Kourtney’s exits that meant it ended."

It has been reported that viewing figures for the show hit an all time low during the most recent season, with an average of just 900,000 people tuning in, a huge drop from the 4.8million viewers that watched it at it's peak.
