UPDATE 12:58 P.M. EST: A network spokesperson denied filming for “Keeping Up With the Kardashians” had been temporarily shut down, telling the Hollywood Reporter that the show is “currently in production and has not been halted.”
Could this be the end of “Keeping Up With the Kardashians?” Production has been temporarily shut down on the long-running reality series for the second time this month, leading many to wonder about the fate of the E! TV show.
TMZ reported Tuesday that producers have stopped filming for “Keeping Up With the Kardashians” following Kanye West’s hospitalization. The outlet said the plan was to film the famous family during the holidays, but that won’t be happening anymore.
Sources claim production has been halted for the remainder of the year, and there’s no word on when filming may resume. Although the reasoning for the most recent delay in filming is due to West’s breakdown, TMZ reported that Kim Kardashian has been so upset since her Paris robbery that “there was no real hope of shooting anything through December.” The publication said they were told that Kardashian has been “rethinking everything.”
Last month, Us Weekly reported that production was “on hold indefinitely” following news that Kardashian was gagged and held at gunpoint during a trip to Paris. Sources told the outlet that no one in the family has talked about Kardashian’s robbery on camera.
Since Kardashian’s scary incident, the mom of two has been laying low. She was scheduled to make her first public appearance last week at the Angel Ball in New York but had to cancel at the last minute after learning that her husband had been taken to UCLA Medical Center for a psychiatric evaluation.
According to a previous report by TMZ, the “Father Stretch My Hands” rapper was hospitalized after he started “acting erratically” at his trainer Harley Pasternak’s home. It was said that West was being treated for sleep deprivation and exhaustion, but sources told TMZ that West has been extremely paranoid and depressed for quite some time.
The 39-year-old artist was supposed to be released Monday, but he couldn’t go home because doctors felt he wasn’t stable enough. There’s no date on when West is expected to be released. The rapper’s hospital stay came just one day after he canceled his “Saint Pablo” tour, and a few days after he went on a bizarre rant about Jay Z and Beyoncé during a concert.
