As news of Keeping Up With The Kardashians coming to an end dominates headlines, claims that the decision tore the family apart have followed.
From Kris Jenner reportedly 'pulling the plug', to 3 of the sisters' reported desire to end the show, the rumors are rife...
Just a few days ago, news hit that no one was expecting.
via: Getty ImagesThe iconic show, Keeping Up With the Kardashians, is coming to an end...
After fourteen years of television gold...
It's a decision that can't have been easy to make.
via: Getty ImagesAnd one that has reportedly torn the family apart...
The Kardashians are a media force.
via: IMDBThey've all starred in one of the most successful realities shows of all time and each of the sisters has a massive influence on social media.
They have come from (somewhat) humble beginnings.
via: ShutterstockSure, they've always had an element of wealth and fame - but back when Keeping Up With The Kardashians started, the sisters certainly weren't the biggest Hollywood success story.
They've come a long way...
via: GettyAnd more and more, the family are being respected as major players, particularly in the realms of fashion and beauty.
Now, they're one of the most famous families on the planet...
But there are some things that they just can't seem to get right.
via: GettyThe Kardashian clan can't seem to avoid controversy at every turn. Skeptics might even suspect they actually court it.
The sisters have been called out time and time again.
Oh, and who can forget the allegations of blackfacing?
When you let Kim’s cultural appropriation slide for years, and now she feels comfortable in blackface. https://t.co/e38irQRBHW— Ａｙｅｓｈａ Ｋ. Ｆａｉｎｅｓ (@Ａｙｅｓｈａ Ｋ. Ｆａｉｎｅｓ)1576864616.0
But that hasn't been their only issue.
In fact, this is something all the sisters have faced criticism for.
via: GettyThey've all been under fire for their shilling of sketchy diet products... And the fact that they all have so much money that they enjoy flaunting regularly consistently lands them in hot water.
But despite all of the negativity...
Season 18 of KUWTK dropped recently...
Fans were all focused on one thing, and one thing only...
The siblings have had their fair share of disagreements over the years...
via: GettyRemember when Khloe and Kourtney wanted to sue Kim for creating a perfume on her own?
Or this iconic moment all the way back from season 1?

But one of the more recent family bust-ups was undoubtedly one of the worst...Involving none other than Kim and Kourtney.
Kim and Kourtney have always had a love-hate relationship with each other.So we aren't entirely surprised that the pair have had yet another disagreement.
In the dramatic clip, Kim and Kourtney end up getting physical with each other.
via: YouTubeAs things begin to get heated, Kim throws a punch at her sister.
Kourtney spoke out over the anticipated incident...

She responded to a tweet by Rob Kardashian.

Tensions seem to be running high amongst the family...
via: GettyAnd it seems that this was enough to make Kourtney finally snap.
Reports came in that Kourtney had quit Keeping Up With The Kardashians.
Kourtney confirmed this on Instagram...
In one episode...
via: GettyKourtney was heard saying, "I don’t like being a celebrity... I’m taking a break from the show. Now I can focus on me and plan my time of being a mum." She then told the camera, "I want to be fulfilled and happy – life is too short."
But now even more shocking news has reached us:
Her statement read:
Now, a big decision like that you would presume would have been a big discussion.
via: Getty ImagesFor not only the family involved, but also with those around them... But seemingly not.
None of the family even thought to tell Caitlyn, who was kept in the dark about the whole thing...
via: YoutubeThe seventy-year-old said on Thursday, that the girls didn't even tell her about the decision beforehand.
Rather than being told by the Kardashian/Jenner clan as you would expect...
Caitlyn revealed on Australia's The Morning Show: "I heard it on the news!"
via: YoutubeAlthough she didn't seem too bitter about the situation, as she went on to praise Kris Jenner and their family for the dedication and effort they put into the show over the years.
"But that show, it's probably the greatest reality show in history. There are over 500 episodes over 14 years," Caitlyn said.
She added that "nothing lasts forever" and is excited about her family's new ventures in cosmetics and clothing lines.
And Caitlyns not wrong, the sisters have all moved on to their own things.
via: Getty ImagesThey all have their own busy lives now.
With their own dramas going on.
via: Getty ImagesAnd businesses to run.
This is an aspect that could have played a part in the show's cancelation after rumors suggested that Kris canceled the show after Kim, Kourtney, and Kylie threatened to quit.
via: Getty ImagesThe Sun reported that a source close to the family claimed: "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."
via: Getty Images"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 she is free to fly off on holiday, or follow [baby daddy] Travis Scott on his next tour."
via: Getty ImagesThis all follows Kourtney's exit from the show earlier this year.
The source reportedly added that Khloe and Scott are the only people upset.
via: Getty Images"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."
The day following the announcement, Kris Jenner discussed the decision with Ryan Seacrest.
via: Getty ImagesKris explained that it felt the time was right.
She said "I think the number 20 used to sound good until 2020, but the number 20 just seemed like the right time I think for us to take a minute and breathe and everybody slow down a bit… figure out what our next steps are."
via: Getty Images"We've had such an amazing run and we're so grateful … for every single moment and everyone we work with."
Who knows, maybe it will come back in a few years.
