Maybe she's been overwhelmed, like many of us, since the election. Maybe she was sick of entertaining her more than 63 million followers. Or, maybe she just wanted a break. 

Whatever the reason, Kendall Jenner has just deactivated her Instagram

It happened last night after no notable mention or message to her millions of fans. While her Facebook and Twitter remain intact, her Instagram account has vanished.

Just poof. Gone. All those #FreeTheNipple selfies and that one hugely popular picture of Jenner's hair in heart shapes are no more. 

Though Jenner has made a ton of money from Instagram, with estimates that she could make $125,000 for a single post, she has mentioned the draw of deleting her social media before. 

"I was just zoning out, taking it all in. And Kylie wouldn't put her phone down. I'm like, 'That's so crazy to me that you're not experiencing this,'" she told Allure just a few months ago. "That was the moment it kind of clicked for me. And I didn't like it. So sometimes I delete Instagram or Twitter or Snapchat off my phone for a couple days."

So it seems that this could be one of those times. 

We'll update this story if and when Jenner comments on the deletion.
