Kourtney Kardashian has revealed she's decided to "step away" from the hit reality TV show Keeping Up With The Kardashians which made her famous.

She announced the news during an appearance on a US chat show called Entertainment Tonight, where Kim and Khloe sat also alongside her to confirm the news.

Kourtney told the show's host Keltie Knight, "I just decided to spend more time as a mom and put more of my energy there. But I'm not saying goodbye.

"I think you'll have to see more of it on the new season, season 18.

"It isn't airing yet, but it's being filmed. Currently, in this room."

Back in 2014, 18-year-old Kylie hit the headlines after it was revealed she was dating rapper Tyga, who was six years older than her. He was the former ex-boyfriend of Kim Kardashian's best friend Blac Chyna, so it was all looking quite strange.However, the pair lasted a long time, dating for around three years and reportedly splitting up in April 2017. During their relationship though, Kylie's brother Rob Kardashian got together, and had a child with, Tyga's ex Blac Chyna, which made the family dynamic very awkward... They were also plagued with split, engagement and pregnancy rumours over the three years. We can't keep up.

Kourtney has often spoken on and off the reality TV show about her desire to keep away from the spotlight as much as possible, trying to get her children, Mason, nine, Penelope, seven, and Reign, four, to lead a life as normal as possible.

Her main storylines on the show are normally based around her family and her struggles as she co-parents with ex-boyfriend Scott Disick.

However, Kourtney's younger sisters Kim and Khloe believe the 40-year-old will return to the show one day - that's if the viewing figures still remain high.

Khloe said, "We definitely love Kourtney and we will miss Kourtney and whatever she decides to do, but people come, people go all the time in this family.

"We feel like it's a revolving door, so Kourtney might leave this week, she'll be back. They all come back."
