Reality TV giants Kris Jenner and Kim Kardashian are reportedly doing their best to keep Kim’s BFF, Jonathan Cheban, out of the "Celebrity Big Brother" house in 2016. They are reportedly worried that Jonathan might spill too many Kardashian-Jenner family secrets, if he appears in the show.

“Kim and her mum took Jonathan to one side and had a heartfelt chat, promising to make him a bigger character on their show with more ­prominent storylines,” a source tells The Mirror. “Jonathan is already in plenty of scenes, but they want to give him more of an incentive not to do CBB,” the source continued.

The talk reportedly occurred during Kris Jenner’s annual Christmas Eve party, in which Jonathan was one of the guests. He is a constant fixture in nearly all of the famous clan’s events, including intimate family vacations and private gatherings. He is considered to be Kim’s BFF and he has a lot of insider information on Kim and the rest of the members of the Kardashian-Jenner family.

Jonathan has been making regular appearances on “Keeping Up with the Kardashians” and its various spin-offs over the years. The family is reportedly trying to offer him a bigger role in the show, in order to dissuade him from joining "Celebrity Big Brother." This isn’t the first time that Jonathan has been involved in a similar situation. He and Kim had a big falling out last year, when she accused him of leaking a story about the family to the press. Kim’s sisters Kourtney and Khloe, warned her to be careful about the information that she shares with her friend. When the press got hold of some news that she shared with Jonathan, they had a massive argument, which was caught on camera.

Things have since cooled down, and the pair has repaired the relationship. It remains to be seen if Jonathan will enter the Big Brother house, and if he will be dishing out any juicy details about his BFF’s famous family.
