Production on Keeping Up with the Kardashians has not been halted


A network representative at E! has dismissed reports suggesting production on reality TV show Keeping Up with the Kardashians has been shut down until at least next year. 

Filming first stalled back in October, 2016 after Kim Kardashian became the victim of an armed robbery in Paris, France, during which she was bound, gagged and held at gunpoint while thieves stole jewellery and cell phones.

At the time, a spokesperson for the E! network said show bosses were focusing on her wellbeing and hadn't decide when production would resume, but it was reported Kim was filming the show a few weeks later when she attended her husband Kanye West's concert at The Forum in Inglewood, California with her sister Kourtney and close friend Jonathan Cheban.

However, a report from editors at TMZ indicated the family has not shot any new footage since the robbery and the show wouldn't return until 2017.

A spokesperson for E! is now denying the reports, telling the New York Post's Page Six, "Keeping Up with the Kardashians is currently in production and has not been halted."

In addition to dealing with the affects from the armed robbery, Kim has also been at Kanye's side following his hospitalisation on 21 November, 2016.

Kanye went to the hospital freely for a psychiatric evaluation after suffering "temporary psychosis due to sleep deprivation and dehydration" his doctor Dr. Michael Farzam reportedly told emergency services.

The reality star has been sleeping at the hospital.

"Kim acts very concerned," an insider said. "She says he has yet to be diagnosed, but she uses words like paranoia and explained that Kanye thinks everyone is out to get him.

"Kim does spend hours with Kanye every day... Kim says that not much has changed since he was admitted and that his doctors seem concerned."
