Speaking to Vogue Arabia, the mother of three has since explained that her decision was encouraged because it had become a “toxic environment”.
During her interview and filming, which took place at the star’s home in Los Angeles, Kourtney admitted that she had not been satisfied with her role in the series.
“I’ve been filming the show non-stop for 13 years, 19 seasons and six derivative seasons,” she told the Vogue team.
“I felt dissatisfied and it became a toxic environment for me to continue to occupy it as much of my life,” added Kourtney.
The American media personality also explained that she cherished her privacy, which was difficult for the media.
She added: “Privacy is something I have valued and it is difficult to find a balance between private moments and a reality show.
The founder of Poosh, who also shared a handwritten note on the front of the Vogue cover, also touched on his approach to work.
“People have this misconception that I don’t want to work, which is not true. I am my happiness and I put my energy into what makes me happy, ”she said to the publication.
She went on to explain that she was doing her best to avoid the phone when she was around her children – Mason, 10, Penelope, seven, and Reign, five – and tried to keep one day a week free without no plan.
“I always try my best when I’m with my kids not to be on my phone, to be present in what we do and to have moments when you look yourself in the eye and connect. It is so important, ”she added.
Kourtney’s gradual departure from the show came after tensions between the famous siblings intensified during an episode of KUTWTK.
In an episode, which aired earlier this year, Kim and Kourtney were filmed in a physical fight that left the cast stunned.
The mom of three has since stepped back from filming and revealed that she would choose the filming in which she appeared.
