Plans for a Kardashian family magazine have reportedly been shelved because of Kris Jenner's demands.

The matriarch of Keeping Up with the Kardashians reportedly infuriated prospective publishers American Media Inc. (AMI) with her request for approval on stories about her family across all their other publications, which include Shape, Star, National Enquirer and Radar Online.

Though in return Kris allegedly offered to give all of the family's news to the proposed magazine, AMI rejected the deal, arguing that though E! have a deal for their television shows, other outlets often get better stories about the clan.

A source told the New York Post newspaper: "AMI chief David Pecker made it clear that there was no way he was going to tell his editors what stories they could and couldn't do."

In return, Kris pulled all Kardashian-related product advertisements from Star magazine.

However, a spokesperson for the reality TV star insisted no conversation about her "demands" had taken place but she was unhappy over false claims made regarding the paternity of daughter Khloe.

The representative said: "Kris has never had a conversation with AMI regarding this issue [of her demands]. But, the allegations contained in the Star article about Khloe not being a Kardashian are completely fabricated, false and untrue. Robert Kardashian is absolutely her biological father, so of course she was upset over their story."
