Kim Kardashian admits Keeping Up ended as the famous family ‘needed a break’

Kim Kardashian West has said that she and her famous relatives had to take a much-needed break after filming Keeping Up With The Kardashians.

The trainee lawyer, 39, became a household name back in 2007 after E! commissioned one season of the hit show before a second was commissioned.

Since the launch, the Kardashian-Jenner family have gone on to achieve billionaire status through hundreds of businesses and spin-off shows.

After 20 seasons of the fly-on-the-wall reality show, the family called time on the programme with the final season set to air next year.

Speaking about the difficult decision, Kim said that hectic schedules and spin-off shows helped them make the decision.

In an interview with magazine Grazia, she said: "This was a dream of all of ours. We never imagined we would get on to season two.

"Now we're on 20. Sometimes we just need a break. It's really simple. We just need a minute to regroup. You know, we haven't had a break for 14 years."

The mum-of-four went on to say: "We've gone in filming a season, then a spin-off and I think there's no other way to say it other than, we just live such big lives.

"And we have kids now. And they need us. There's so much going on that, even just for a minute we need a break."

Keeping Up has followed every moment of the family's life, from Kim's fairytale marriage to rapper Kanye West as well as her divorce from Kris Humphries.

It also filmed Khloé Kardashian's relationship and whirlwind marriage to basketball player Lamar Odom before they divorced after seven years.

Kim broke the news that Keeping Up was ending in a powerful social media statement.

She penned: "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. Thank you to the thousands of individuals and businesses that have been a part of this experience."

Confirming the final season, she added: "Our last season will air early next year in 2021. 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."
