The Kardashian family has practically built their massive empire on the back of social media, but Kendall Jenner wants a break. The supermodel, who had the most "liked" photo on Instagram in 2015, chose to delete the photo-sharing app a few days ago, causing an uproar with her fans. "It's so crazy to me that it even became huge news," she told Ellen DeGeneres during an appearance on her talk show on Wednesday. "I honestly didn't even think anyone would care." After revealing that she's also taken Twitter off of her phone, the Victoria's Secret runway queen finally divulged the motivation behind her choice to unplug. "I just wanted to detox. I wanted a little bit of a break," she said. "I felt a little too dependent on it." Apparently she's taken sister Khloé Kardashian's words about the family needing to "pull back a little bit" on social media to heart.
