According to reports, the Keeping Up With The Kardashian’s creator demanded that the 42-year-old socialite – who is Kim Kardashian’s best friend – boarded a plane back to Los Angeles to continue filming on her popular reality TV show, but he refused to return from the UK.

A source told the MailOnline: “Kris and the show’s producers have kicked off because Jonathan has refused to fly back to Los Angeles, as well as missing Kim’s big Dubai trip.

“Jonathan staying in London really throws Keeping Up With The Kardashians production into a spin because they need continuity throughout the show.

“They want him to go back to LA, but he’s in London filming a couple of TV shows and is refusing to budge.”

Jonathan flew to the UK to appear on the hit dating show alongside Joey Essex, Stephen Bear and Diversity’s Perri Kiely, after apparently being initially approached by Celebrity Big Brother bosses to take part in the current All Stars vs. New Stars special.

However, the Channel 5 reality show reportedly retracted their offer because of his ‘diva demands’, which allegedly included £100,000 a day, Michelin-star meals and his own private bedroom for the duration of his stay in the Borehamwood bungalow.

Meanwhile, Kim – who took three months out of the spotlight last year after she was robbed at gunpoint while staying at a luxury apartment in Paris – was reportedly furious after hearing about her BFF’s career decisions.

A source told the publication: “Kim has been quite clear that she isn’t impressed that he is doing the programme, although she would love nothing more than for her friend to be settled and happy in a relationship.”

Using her powers of persuasion, the 36-year-old star – who has two children (North, three, and Saint, 13 months) with her husband Kanye West – even tried to play matchmaker as she reportedly told Jonathan that she could hook him up with someone more ‘suitable’ in America.

Phew! We wouldn’t want to get on the wrong side of Kim, or any of the Kardashians for that matter.
