Does anyone else just not understand all of the Scott Disick drama? I know he’s been through a lot of stuff (his parents’ death, his substance abuse issues), but Scott and Kourtney Kardashian have been done for years. They moved on from each other long ago and they should have broken up years before they did. They barely tolerated each other as their relationship limped along for years. I also realize that a big chunk of Scott’s angst with Kourtney and Travis Barker’s relationship and engagement is along the lines of “he doesn’t want to see his ex move on.” But holy yikes, Scott is 38 years old and he’s blanketing the gossip media, telegraphing that he’s about to have a nervous breakdown because his ex is engaged. Have some self-respect, dude.
A family divided. Scott Disick‘s disconnection from the Kardashian-Jenners doesn’t seem to be getting any better in the wake of Kourtney Kardashian‘s engagement to Travis Barker.
“The Kardashians adore Scott and tell him he’s part of the family no matter what, but he feels very distant and feels like an outcast more than ever,” a source exclusively tells Us Weekly of the Flip It Like Disick alum, 38, who dated Kardashian, 42, off and on from 2006 to 2015. The duo share Mason, 11, Penelope, 9, and Reign 6.
For several years, the exes maintained a friendly coparenting relationship, with Disick joining the Kardashians for family trips, but things have seemingly changed since the Poosh founder’s romance with Barker, 45, started heating up.
“He avoids family get-togethers that Travis is at, and he has refused to be in the same room with him at times,” the insider adds. “It’s fair to say the holidays this year are going to be rough and will be a battle over the kids.”
Things also hit a breaking point earlier this year when Kardashian’s ex-boyfriend Younes Bendjima shared Instagram DMs that he claimed were sent to him by Disick. “Yo is this chick ok!????? Brooo like what is this. In the middle of Italy,” the Talentless cofounder allegedly wrote to the 28-year-old model, alongside a photo of Barker and his girlfriend making out during their European vacation. After Bendjima posted the DMs in August, a source told Us that the relationship between Disick and Kardashian was “more strained than ever,” partly because of her romance with Barker. “[Scott’s] worried that she’s going to try to put a wedge between him and the kids,” the insider added. “Younes outing him on social just made everything worse.”
Okay, it’s sort of sad and toxic that all of this boils down to “Scott is afraid he’s going to lose the only family he has left.” Like… just change your behavior? Stop being such a douchebag? Get a lawyer and lock down joint custody of the children. Maintain your relationships with Khloe, Kris and Rob too – Scott is close to those three especially, and he was even in New York two weeks ago with the whole family for Kim’s SNL gig. He and Khloe were partying arm-in-arm. Why is he so worried and angsty? Make a choice: be a grown-up or be a d-bag.
PS… Do you think Khloe and Scott will ever try something? They completely adore each other and they’ve always had a much more loving and supportive relationship than he ever had with Kourtney.

I have never followed these fools, but even I know he dates 20 year olds. Recently a Hamlin and before that a Richie.
So, yeah, cry me a river dude.
And she has said she’s only attracted to black men (shoot me that I know this).
Exactly. He’s fine when it’s him flaunting the latest young starlet around in public, but not when the shoe is on the other foot. I have always thought he views Kourtney as a fall back during the lean times.
My view, he’s worried hes going to start to miss out on future money opportunities with whatever the KJs do. Not that i will watch. I’ve never understood the fascination for “reality” shows.
I think part of his issue relates to future revenue.
I think Scott thought that he and Kourtney would eventually get back together. He probably thought of this idea as romantic, when in fact it’s about asserting inappropriate control and ownership over an ex-partner. He’s not to blame for his feelings, but the lashing out at Kourtney is not ok. I hope someone sits him down and explains that he needs to get ahold of himself.
Honestly I’ve always wondered why Khloe and Scott don’t just give it a go. I don’t even think anyone would be mad. But maybe they just have a brother/sister vibe.
Maybe they get on well because they’ve never veered into relationship territory. I don’t think either of them are good at those or know what healthy ones look like.
Khloe hated him when they were fist in each other’s orbit. During the Khloe and Kourtney in Miami years she was constantly making that known. I feel like their closeness now is really more a product of each of them vibing off the other’s a-hole tendencies.
Khloe is too old for Scott.
I feel like Khloe and Scott did get together. Many it was a one-time thing or something a bit more but they have given me romantic vibes for a long time.
I also feel like Kourtney has periodically slept with Scott through the years partly as a way to get back at his girlfriends. I don’t believe they’ve really been over the other ever. They are both toxic and play against the other’s emotions with other mates.
Is anyone else tired of whiney, immature men? Or am I just too old and cranky?
May I sit in the rocking chair next to you?
Can I join too? I have Werther’s in my cardigan pocket to share. Just so tired of men acting like an overtired toddler.
@Zapp Brannigan, Omg! “overtired toddler” is bang on the money!! And I’ll take your Werther’s in your cardigan pocket and raise you the hanky up my sleeve 🙂 🙂
I am coming too!! I will bring wine….
Yes we are, no you are not!
I’ll bring my knitting. We can tell the kids to get off our lawn
As long as I’m in bed by 8:30 🙂
Let me shuffle over and we share my Werthers.
May I sit beside you with my needlepoint? I might be smoking a joint, though. Old hippie…. I promise to pass to all the little old ladies on the rocker bench with us.
I have egg nog to share . . . Am I in?
Anyone else think that’s just his upcoming storyline for that new show?
I don’t doubt he’s bothered (male ego), but I don’t believe he’s that stressed about it. Just like anyone else, he must have seen the engagement coming from 10 miles away.
It’s absolutely part of a storyline.
Yep, the constant headlines about the supposed breakdown after he left her years ago for a series of barely legal “models”…. He could not care less but they both have to play like he does for a storyline.
Yeah, that’s my call too. Storyline. I’m sure he doesn’t *love* it, but I doubt he’s crying himself to sleep at night. Without a storyline, none of these people have jobs.
Huh, I didn’t realize that I’ve been hearing about this guy for 15 YEARS. On, off, on, off. And after the final off, it was still ” will they get back together, no, yes, no, yes, no…” Yeah, I don’t understand this drama, either.
I honestly am surprised him and Khloe don’t get together.
also he was definitely with Kourtney earlier than 2006 – they gave a nine year timeframe but their oldest is eleven haha.
I really think he thought they’d get back together. Travis is the only person she’s been serious with since their breakup, and they definitely teased on their show that their relationship wasn’t completely over. that plus the Kardashians being his only real family is probably sending him into a tailspin, even though it’s a direct result of his own behavior.
It says their oldest child is 11 now, so born in 2010.
ah, you’re right. commented too early in the morning 🤦
Is it too much to wish they’d all get sucked up in a tornado and deposited on a remote island with no technology? And no boats?
I bet there would still be cameras and they would market their whole experience as “Survivor: Kardashian Island”
I do wonder what Kourtney was telling him / letting him believe about their relationship. If he thought them getting back together was likely, it would explain why he’s acting like she cheated on him. Of course, it’s possible he’s just the type of man who can’t let go but after some of the things the Kardashians have done to husbands / boyfriends to make a good show, I do wonder.
I think that she wasn’t a complete “no” – his addiction has always been the biggest issue. I’m sure on some level at an earlier point in all of this she thought that they would be good if he could get clean and stay that way. However, I also think the writing has been on the wall that she and the kids are not going to inspire this man to grow up. As for him, I think he always believed that he could have his cake (teenagers and addiction) and eat it as well (play house with her and the kids) as long as he wanted.
I don’t think she was stringing him along, I think she was trying to be as peaceful and keep things as good as possible.
At some point you just realize that you have to be happy and that might rock them a bit, but you aren’t responsible for keeping and addict happy just to keep them safe. (Or, that was my experience.)
Is it me or does he look different somehow? I feel like his eyes are super round or something.
I read a comment about this family that really had me laughing. It said something about how the KarJenners keep Rob chubby so they can use his fat for their injections. Made me laugh and then actually question if this was possible lol.
Hahaha! That’s hilarious. I going to start telling people that’s why I’m still chubby.
Woo, I’m glad I’m not the only one. He looks really, really different.
He looks like Steve Carrell’s unlikable/not-that-much-younger brother. Seriously, this is the same dude who claimed young girls liked him because he doesn’t look his age. Well he most certainly doesn’t look 38…try 48, and that’s being generous.
From what I recall, we did see a big difference in him/improvement after they had Mason. I think he fell off the rails after both his parents died around the same time. To be fair, I don’t think he was the only issue in their relationship. When they were together with the kids, she seemed quite withdrawn/withholding.
The KarJenners are not his family. He’s in denial.
I really believe this “Scott drama” is just for their new show. This family is under a lot of pressure to make their new show a hit. If not, I am guessing HULU won’t sign them on for a second season. If that happens, this family is done. They need to pull viewers in. Scott is being used, but I think he’s perfectly ok with that. Also, let’s be real. Kourtney might get married to Travis on camera, but she’s not signing a marriage certificate. No way. You’re telling me this is the guy she’s been holding out for? He’s just as bad as Scott is…a major cheater…twice divorced…treated his last wife horribly. Just like I don’t think Kylie and Travis Scott are really back together. She just wanted that second kid with him. They’ll announce their ” break up” a month after the baby is born.
I think you’re on to something! Perhaps she’ll pull a Jennifer Aniston and have the public ceremony with zero paperwork being filed. If it doesn’t work, just walk away. I can see Kris putting her stamp of approval on this. No pre up needed.
If Scott and Shana Moakler pull a move like Rob Kardashian and Blac Chyna I will absolutely pass out.
I did watch them when he Kourtney & Khloe stayed in the Hamptons after his parents died & he was depressed that Kourtney never fostered a close relationship with his parents who lived in the Hamptons & how she never visted the Hamptons with the kids while his parents were alive…I have to admit I pitied him seeing that…and yea even on that show Kourtney paid him UTTER DUST while Khloe & he were delightful together
Ha no way is Khloe giving up on Tristan for Scott. She is OBSESSED with Tristan and they are 100 % together…you don’t take a baby daddy to your sisters engagement…he wasn’t there to babysit lol. Khloe has zero self respect and Tristan can cheat all he wants as long as he is discrete and doesn’t get caught out again by TMZ. No way Travis and Kylie are together either.
Well she’s 100% together with him. Him? Maybe 73%. Most likely less.
I like Kourtney & Travis as a couple and I think they’re legit. I honestly see the rest of this as just an engineered plotline. If he wasn’t pretending to still be mooning over Kourtney, he loses his role in their drama and next show. He’s very much *not supposed* to change his behavior. If it were a story about two people just getting engaged in a normal and healthy way without ex drama, it wouldn’t work. I’m sure Shanna will get to cash some paychecks too.
I think the romance died a long time ago between Kourt n Scott, so I don’t think he’s jealous in that sense. But he is co-dependant of her and her family. They are technically the only family he has and they are also his source of income.
Scott should find a woman closer in age who is actually serious about settling down with him, n stop chasing teenagers. But of course he won’t.
