According to a new report, production of Keeping Up With the Kardashians has been temporarily shut down due to Kanye West's hospitalization. This is what we all know about the sudden news. This might affect their individual careers also.
Kim Kardashian Robbery Incident
For a long time, it was considered unimaginable for the Kardashians, especially Kim, to stay out of the spotlight for the meantime. A Kardashian staying out of the public audience was like a fish staying out of water, trapped within comfort zone! Many still think of the famous reality family as something you would see in an amusement park, and so far, that's how it's felt for the last nine years and 12 seasons. The idea of Kim being a real person was an unthinkable concept, even after her harrowing robbery in Paris.
This is first time Keeping Up With the Kardashians temporarily stopped for nine years production, it was right after the news broke that Kim was robbed by masked men at gunpoint in her private suite. The show's network, E!, made a brief statement in the event of Kim Kardashian's robbery.
"Kim's well-being is our core focus right now. No decision has been made as to when production will resume," a network spokesperson told The Hollywood Reporter. As everyone already knows, Kim was robbed in the early hours of October 3, when five thieves dressed up as police officers forcibly entered her Paris hotel room. The unknown men, tied up the reality star at gunpoint and locked her in the hotel bathroom. They ran off with $11.0 million in jewelry, leaving Kim "badly shaken" by the experience.
The incident is still being investigated by the authorities, but since then, Kim rescheduled her Dubai makeup class and Kanye rescheduled several dates of his Saint Pablo Tour, to take care of his wife. There is still no activity on any of Kim's social media accounts and she has continued to keep a very low profile.
Kanye West Unwanted Hospitalization
The good news for KUWTK fans is that the show has enough footage for the rest of the season, but the bad news is that Kanye's recent hospitalization has once again halted any future production of the show. The plan was to film through the holidays, but now that won't be the case. Last week, Kanye was taken by an ambulance to UCLA Medical Center for psychiatric evaluation, and has since been hospitalized. Per sources, police responded to a call for a welfare check up for Kanye. At the time, he was at his trainer Harley Pasternak's home and was reportedly "acting erratically."
The hospitalization comes on the heels of Kim's robbery in Paris, his verbal attack on power couple Jay Z and Beyoncé, and the abrupt cancelling of his Saint Pablo Tour. Many reports have stated that the 39-year-old rapper has been having dreams of Kim's robbery and has been suffering a mental breakdown because of all the stress.
"That's what made him worse," a source told Us Weekly. "He didn't want to be away from her, (the roberry) was just as hard for him, but he tried to keep going. He would never have canceled the tour unless things were bad."
So far, Kim has stayed loyal to her husband and mutual about the current situation, not leaving his side throughout his whole tribulation. The show has been postponed until further notice.
