Despite the longevity of "KUWTK," fans were shocked when the Kardashian-Jenner family announced that it was ending in 2021 after 13 years. 

Kim Kardashian took to Instagram to break the news, sharing a joint statement signed by herself, her mom, Kris, sisters — Khloé, Kourtney Kardashian, Kendall Jenner, and Kylie Jenner, brother Rob Kardashian, and former in-law Scott Disick

In the note, the family disclosed their decision to conclude this significant journey and thanked their fans for accompanying them through "the good times, the bad times, the happiness, and the tears." 

Despite the clan's united front, subsequent reports alleged that certain members—including Kim, Kourtney, and Kylie—had considered walking away, ultimately leading to the show's cancellation.

While this update did not shock many, considering Kourtney's break and on-screen alterations with her sisters, the family promptly denied the claims.

Lamar Odom's Drug Addiction Led To The Collapse Of His Marriage To Khloe Kardashian

Fans will recall that Khloe and Odom exchanged vows just one month after meeting at a party for Odom's teammate, Metta Sandiford-Artest.

Initially, their celebrity union soared to great heights, even earning them their own reality series, "Khloé & Lamar," which aired from 2011 to 2012. 

However, their fairy-tale romance took a sharp turn in 2013 when the Good American founder filed for divorce. As it turned out, Odom's battles with addiction and alleged infidelity ultimately led to the demise of their relationship.

Over the years, Lamar has repeatedly apologized to his ex-wife, and he did so again in the newly unveiled trailer for his documentary, "Lamar Odom: S—, Drugs & Kardashians," which premiered on January 2 on Fox News.

In a trailer for the show's inaugural episode, the former professional basketball player candidly discussed his struggles with drug use and addiction throughout his marriage to Khloé.

As The Blast observed, he delved into how his addiction ultimately led to the deterioration of their relationship. Reflecting on his struggles, Lamar candidly confessed to Harvey Levin, "Drugs was my girlfriend. I had a wife and cocaine." 

When pressed about whether Khloé was aware of his drug use during their marriage, the 44-year-old acknowledged that he eventually had to come clean, stating, "For part of our marriage, I had to tell her. We can't hide that forever."

Where Was Caitlyn Jenner During Kim's S— Tape Saga?

In case you missed it, shortly before "KUWTK" was set to launch in 2007, a s—x tape of Khloé's sister, Kim, surfaced online. With it came shock and instant fame for the Kardashians, as they became a sensational headline across the tabloids.

While the family has made it a point not to speak about it publicly, Caitlyn touched on it during her appearance on Sky's "House of Kardashian" docuseries. 

The college football player recalled retreating to the serenity of the country club when she heard about the intimate recording. Thinking back on her mindset at the time, she expressed:

"Whatever's happening, I'm not sure, but I'm heading to the golf course." 

Caitlyn then admitted that she "just stayed out" of the drama, which was a pretty easy task since his then-wife, Kris, and stepdaughter, Kim, never talked about it with him.  

"I'm unsure of what occurred or why," the 74-year-old added before vehemently denying any involvement in helping Kim release the video to the public.
