Kim Kardashian reportedly feels "guilty" about ditching Keeping Up with the Kardashians.

The star has apparently decided to quit the reality TV show her family is famous for. Her decision comes after she gave birth to her daughter North in June. Kim's fiancé Kanye West has made no secret of his desire to keep North out of the limelight, something Kim has taken on board.

"Kim feels very guilty - she feels like she has stomped on her mom's heart. She always says that Kris [Jenner, mother] lives for them, for the Kardashian brand. Kim hated having to tell her she was entering a new chapter of her life," an insider told British magazine Heat. "She also worries when Kanye talks about transforming her image, because she thinks that sounds like he's dissing what her mom did for her."

Although Kim, 33, knows the move is right for her, she still has mixed emotions. While her family all find the interest in their personal lives hard, Kim has always realised it comes with the territory.

"I know Kim was terrified to tell her mom because she thought Kris would explode at Kanye. She was definitely torn. Kim loves the show and embraces all aspects of it - whenever the others complain about the intrusion, Kim would say, 'This is what we signed up for.' But Kanye changed all of that," the source added.

Kim's sisters Khloé and Kourtney have also apparently decided to leave the series. Khloé's marriage to Lamar Odom has been going through a rocky patch lately, following claims he is addicted to drugs and cheated on her.

While they are thought to be working things out, she reportedly wants more time to devote to the relationship. She is yet to discuss her problems in public, although she has hinted at them on recent episodes of Keeping Up with the Kardashians. Fans have seen Lamar frantically calling Khloé and her family, with her moaning she isn't his mother and can't treat him like a child in other scenes.

Kourtney is also tired of the show and wants to take some time out from the spotlight if possible.

Growing up as the daughter of celebrity lawyer Robert Kardashian, who was the defense attorney in the OJ Simpson murder trial, Kim was used to hanging out with famous people from a very young age.

A fresh face Kim arrives at a Hollywood launch in 2006. She is 26 years old here - sex tape scandal and global domination still await her.
She'd rather forget about it but there's no escaping the fact that Kim found fame because of the sex tape she made with singer Ray J released in early 2007. In October of that year, the reality TV show that would make her a global sensation, Keeping up with the Kardashians premiered.
Seen here walking the catwalk in 2007, Kim's origins are in fashion. She's the co-owner of the fashion boutique chain D-A-S-H, along with sisters Khloe and Kourtney and has been linked to several lines of clothing, including Dorothy Perkins.

While Kim gets more attention than her sisters Kourtney and Khloe, the trio, pictured here in 2009, make for a great triple act.
She's not afraid to play around with her image and she's seen here in 2009 sporting a very classic look.
If Kim knows one thing, it's how to make the most of her enviable curves, as she does here at a magazine launch last September.
Kim goes blonde? Thankfully this was a wig and part of her mermaid costume for Halloween last year.
They had a lavish wedding but Kim's 2011 marriage to NBA player Kris Humphries ended acrimoniously and after only 72 days. Irreconcilable differences were cited.
She has an incredible 17,047540 followers on Twitter. Hardly surprising when she posts snaps like these.
Kris Jenner, Kim's mother, is also her 'momager' which can make for some tense scenes on Keeping up with the Kardashians.
They were friends for a long time before they became lovers and now Kimye have a baby and are set to wed next year.
Jay-Z and Kanye might be besties but there are rumours that Jay-Zs wife Beyonce is not so taken with Kim. However, the foursome looked cosy at an awards ceremony during the summer.
When she debuted what was seemingly a new fringe in December, it caused a frenzy. However, it transpired that the fringe was actually a clip in.
Since becoming a mum, Kim has gone blonde, and shed over three stone on the Atkins diet.
Kim has offered to take off her top in the past to prove that she hasnt had breast augumentation.

"She just wants to run the family's Dash stores, be involved in their clothing line and perfumes, plus be a full-time mom," the insider said.

Her partner Scott Disick is less interested in backing out of the show, which brings him lucrative nightclub appearances. This is said to have caused Kris to dream up Kardashians - Next Generation, a show which will focus on her teenage daughters with Bruce Jenner, Kendall and Kylie. It's thought Scott will also appear on the series.
