A very wise woman once told me never to believe any Kardashian news that surfaces when the family is filming yet another season, and she couldn’t have been more correct! The family certainly knows how to stay in the limelight with a constant stream of well-timed drama. Not a day goes by that we aren’t treated to giant revelations, inappropriate Instagrams, pregnancy announcements, and break-up rumors.
The Keeping up with the Kardashians media circus is often carried out by random sources and unnamed family insiders, but we all know that Kris Jenner is the true ringmaster. Caitlyn Jenner news is subsiding and the hype about Kim and Kanye giving North a baby brother is so last week, so what should we focus on now? I know! Let’s dish on Kourtney kicking the always douchey Lord Disick to the curb yet again. The couple has been together for nine years and just recently welcomed their third child, but Scott’s out-of-control partying and obnoxious behavior are often front and center on KUWTK and its slew of spin-offs. We’ve seen the cycle practically every season…Scott constantly boozes to the point where his habits become a legitimate concern, Kourtney threatens to leave him, Scott has a break down that involves hitting rock bottom (usually smashing something in the process), Scott seeks treatment, Kourtney takes him back with a laundry list of ultimatums, and boom, they have another kid. And so it begins…again.

According to E!, the pair has called it quits on the heels of a yet bout of debauchery that has spanned several weeks. I guess that’s just a professional hazard when one’s income comes from being paid to party. A source reveals, “Scott has been running around saying he’s single,” adding, “Kourtney dumped him after she saw the pics [in Monte Carlo] and he hasn’t been home after a month-long party binge.”
The insider continues, “Kourtney has always taken Scott back and been by his side, but now with three kids it has gotten old. Kourtney has to do what’s best for the kids.” Oldest son Mason is five, daughter Penelope turns three this week, and Reign is six-months-old. Earlier this year, Kourtney praised Scott’s progress, but now another source is worried he is surrounding himself with people who “are not a good influence” and “not looking out for his best interests.” The site reports that those closest to Scott “fear he is out of control and has fallen off the wagon,” with a source noting, “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.”
Instead of celebrating Independence Day with his family, Scott was spotted in Monte Carlo cozying up to stylist Chloe Bartoli, who is described by some outlets as Scott’s ex and by others as someone who isn’t well thought of by the Kardashian family (I’m sure she’s devastated). For the holiday, Kourtney spent time in Malibu, with a family friend admitting that the reality star “is putting on a brave face, but she is over it. She’s fed up. It’s humiliating and disrespectful. How much more is she supposed to take?” A TMZ source concurs, “His partying lately has made her make this tough decision.”
As the break-up gossip gains momentum, it’s only fitting that a picture would surface this week of Scott partying at the Trump SoHo (it’s been a good week for the Donald, no?) in New York City last month. Like every scandalous photograph, it’s got all the elements-mystery girl sitting extremely close to his Lordship who is oblivious to the punk trying to sneak a money shot for some tabloid cash complete with a coffee table strewn with cigarettes, half-empty beers, a prescription bottle, and a mountain of pills piled up in the center. Us Weekly shared the incriminating pic with commentary from a fellow reveler who insisted Scott appeared “really interested” in said mystery brunette. The site also elaborates on Scott’s antics with Chloe while in Monte Carlo. A witness to their display of PDA (and who cites the Lord as a “drunken mess) dishes, “They were all over each other and so blatant. They were feeding each other with their own forks. She was nuzzling her head on his shoulder, and he was stroking her arm and thighs.”
Now, I don’t know about y’all, but this family seems to truly thrive on the old adage that there is no such thing as bad press. Do you doubt for one second that a certain momager is behind this calculated leak of information? Could someone be jealous that Caitlyn was getting so much attention? I’m not saying that Scott isn’t on a terrible downward spiral and in serious need of professional help, I’m simply questioning the timing. Let’s face it, these folks are masters at manipulation, especially when it comes to the show. Need I remind you of this and this? Perhaps Scott and Lamar Odom should look into having their own spin-off. Don’t steal my idea, Ryan Seacrest!
