Yolanda Hadid announced she was leaving The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills earlier this week, but now new details have come out about her departure from the hit reality TV franchise.

A source ET that the decision to go separate ways wasn't mutual. In fact, Hadid left RHOBH because she was demoted from a main housewife to a friend of the show in the upcoming season by producers.

After hearing that news, Hadid told production that she would only stay if she could continue as a main housewife, to which production declined.The source insists there is no bad blood between Hadid, Bravo, and the series' production team, however.

This new information brings clarity to Hadid's announcement that she was leaving the series, which she posted to Instagram on Wednesday.

The 52-year-old reality star wrote that while she had hoped for a better ending than season six of Housewives, "sometimes we don't get to control the ending of the chapters in our life."

As viewers will remember, last season of RHOBH focused on Hadid's Lyme disease diagnosis, which was questioned by her fellow housewives in several drama-filled moments.

"I believe that every exit is an new entry and with that in mind I say goodbye to my @Bravotv Family as I continue to focus on a my recovery, my children and bring back the privacy within our Home," Hadid wrote. "I am excited about this CHOICE and look forward to the next chapter of my life."
