A former nanny to the Kardashian-Jenner clan has claimed Kris Jenner "ran the show" as she heeded a stark warning to the family to protect their kids.
Pam Behan, who looked after Kourtney, Kim, Khloe and brother Rob as kids in the 90s, has begged the Kardashian-Jenners not to put their own kids through the childhood they had.
In an interview with the Mirror, Pam said she felt the kids she cared for were thrust into the limelight by their fame-hungry mum.
Pam began work with the Kardashians in 1991 when Kourtney was 12, Kim, 10, Khloe, seven and Robert, just four.
She had previously looked after Caitlyn’s sons Brandon and Brody and had lived with the Kardashian family in their LA mansion for more than five years.
She urged them to spend time with their kids before they grow up, pleading: "Your kids are young once, only once – make it about them."
The family’s brood of ten have featured heavily on the social media moguls’ pages and on E! series Keeping Up With The Kardashians over the years.
Kourtney, 41, shares Mason, Penelope, and Reign, with ex Scott Disick, while Kim, 39, has North, Saint, Chicago, and Psalm, with rapper Kanye West.
Khloe, 36, and on-off partner Tristan Thompson welcomed their daughter True two years ago, and Rob, 33, has Dream with his ex and former stripper Blac Chyna.
Kendall, 25, has no children, and Kylie, 23, shares her daughter Stormi with hip-hop star Travis Scott.
The former nanny admitted she wasn't 'surprised' to find out that the plug was being pulled on Keeping Up With The Kardashians, as she claimed Kris, 64, was "incredibly controlling" and "ran the show".
She said she believed it was mum Kris Jenner’s craving for fame that lead to the kids living out their lives so publicly.
Pam said: "The driving force behind the whole thing has definitely been Kris, she thrives being in the limelight."
The mum-of-one who is now a nurse suggested the end of the show could come as "a relief" to the family.
"I’d like to give them advice to say, make it about them right now, while they're young. I know I wouldn’t want my child in the spotlight 24/7, every move" Pam said.
Speculating on what the family will do following the axing of their show, Pam advised: "As their nanny, I’d like to give them advice to say, make it about them right now, while they're young.
"The girls have got their whole lives to get back into whatever they want to do."
Kim Kardashian was first to reveal the long-running show that made her a global star was coming to an end in a bombshell statement posted to her Instagram on Tuesday.
The 39-year-old businesswoman wrote to devastated fans: "It is with heavy hearts that we’ve made the difficult decision as a family to say goodbye to Keeping Up With The Kardashians."
The show, which is one of the longest running on TV, will air for two more seasons – one starting this month, and its 20th and final one next year.
The Kardashian family have hit back at the claims made by their former nanny.
A representative for the family said: "It’s unfortunate that Pam continues to capitalize on the Kardashian family with lies.
"She was a nanny for the family 30 years ago and she has no knowledge or understanding of the family since that time.
"Furthermore, the statements she makes and has made about the time of her employment about the family are false."
