Kendall Jenner made headlines over the weekend – although she didn’t actually realise she had – when she quietly and unexpectedly deleted her Instagram account. 

And now the 21-year-old model has revealed the reason for her social media shutdown after appearing on Ellen DeGeneres’ chat show Wednesday.

“I just wanted a little bit of a break,” she said. “I’m always on it. I feel like I would wake up in the morning and I would look at it first thing, I would go to bed and it was the last thing I would look at.

“I felt a little dependent on it. It’s a detox.”

BUT… It won’t be for long.

“I’ll be back,” Kendall confirmed. “I’ll come back.”

She also admitted to deleting the Twitter app from her phone at the same time, which meant that she didn’t know how much everyone was talking about until she started getting texts from friends. 


“It’s so crazy to me that it even became huge news like that,” the Victoria’s Secret Angel explained. “I didn’t delete Twitter entirely but I took the app off my phone so I had no idea anyone was even talking about it and I honestly didn’t think anybody would care.”

Luckily, mumma Kris is keeping us in the loop.
