Kourtney Kardashian couldn’t take it anymore, it seems.
Despite having 3 children together, the reality TV star is now over her relationship with Scott Disick as sources confirmed exclusively to E! News that Kourtney has decided to split from her longtime partner over the 4th of July holiday weekend.
Kourtney’s decision to break up with Scott came as no surprise to many because they’ve always had an on-off relationship all throughout the filming of E!’s “Keeping Up With The Kardashians”. A source told E! News:
Kourtney has always taken Scott back and been by his side, but now with 3 kids it has gotten old (…) Kourtney has to do what’s best for the kids.
Kourtney and Scott have been dating since 2006 after meeting at mutual friend Joe Francis’ house party in Mexico. She gave birth to their first son, Mason Dash Disick, on 14th December 2009. Despite their seemingly happy relationship, they temporarily split during the filming of “Kourtney and Kim Take Miami” in early 2010 as she believed that Scott had an alcohol problem. They reconciled and continued their relationship in mid-2010 after Scott regularly attended therapy and temporarily gave up alcohol
In 2011, Scott bought an engagement ring and planned to propose to Kourtney during an evening meal in New York City. However, he did not propose as Kourtney told him:
If things are so good now, why would we want to change that?
She subsequently gave birth to their 2nd and 3rd child in July 2012 and December 2014 respectively.
Kourtney, who has been busy taking care of their 3 children, told E! News earlier this year that she was extremely supportive of Scott. She said, “He’s doing well, and you know, focusing on himself and working on himself”.
She added, “He’s made a lot of progress, so I’m proud of him.”
However, Scott’s improved behaviour didn’t last long as he began spending time with some friends who are deemed a bad influence on him and “not looking out for his best interests”. Sources said he was recently spotted “partying hard” without Kourtney, adding that those who are close to Scott “fear he is out of control and has fallen off the wagon”.
He was even photographed in Monte Carlo getting close with Chloe Bartoli, an LA-based stylist who is also his former girlfriend.
According to a source, the 32-year-old TV personality “has been running around saying he’s single”. The source added, “Kourtney dumped him after she saw the pics (in Monte Carlo) and he hasn’t been home after a month-long party binge”.
Scott has been trying to work on his alcohol problems for a while. Last year, as shown on “Kourtney & Khloé Take The Hamptons”, he sought treatment at a Connecticut facility after a night of hard partying that left him thinking that he was going to die. Despite cutting his rehab stay short, he said the experience was “scary” and made him “realise how much is at stake”.
A source added that he sought treatment again at a rehab facility in Costa Rica in March 2015 where he was “working on his issues”. He returned to California within few weeks, but was expected “to return (to rehab) some time soon as part of his ongoing therapy”.
For now, Kourtney is in Malibu enjoying a low-key get-together with friends. A source said that she “is putting on a brave face” and added, “But she is over it. She’s fed up. It’s humiliating and disrespectful. How much more is she supposed to take?”
Another source said that it is worrying as “Scott does not seem to care about what he’s doing”:
He’s clearly unraveling. He was a mess in NYC last month with the drinking and partying and he’s been in a downward spiral ever since. He’s been in trouble before, but this is on another level.
