Kendall Jenner Finally Explains Why She Deleted Instagram
Kendall Jenner boasts one of the most-followed Instagram accounts in operation and holds the title of most-liked post of 2015. So why did she mysteriously delete her account earlier this week? She tells Ellen Degeneres in a preview of the next Ellen that it was for her own mental health.
"I just wanted to detox," she says in the clip above. "I just wanted a little bit of a break."
Jenner admits she had no idea the seemingly harmless choice would amount to national news coverage, but said she has no regrets about ditching her social media hub.
"It's really nice. I suggest it," she says. "I'm away from my phone so much more. You start to engage in real life and how you have to deal with real people right in front of you, so it's kind of really nice to be away from it even if it's just Instagram."
And if you're one of many who's missing Jenner's updates, fear not — she says her account will likely be back up and running in no time, but there was simply no overlooking her obsession in the immediate.
"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 that I would look at," she said. "I felt a little too dependent on it, so I kinda wanted to take a minute. It's a detox. I'll be back."
