“Happy Valentine’s Day!” Kourtney captioned this photo, which she shared on Valentine’s Day this year. “Feeling blessed to get to share this day and my life with my true love and our three little angels.
Happy Birthday to my sweet, handsome, hilarious soul mate. – Kourtney’s Instagram in May
ITS OVER AFTER 9 YEARS AND 3 KIDS
Kardashian, 36, and Disick, 32, shared nine years and three children together – though their relationship was frequently strained by Disick’s substance abuse issues, including a stint in rehab earlier this year. Most recently, Disick made headlines when he was spotted cozying up to ex-girlfriend Chloe Bartoli during a vacation in Monte Carlo last week.
Multiple sources told PEOPLE Disick had fallen off the wagon once again: “He’s in a classic shame spiral right now. He knows he’s screwing up, and he knows what he needs to do,” a source close to Disick told PEOPLE this weekend. “He has people telling him to go home and work things out, to stop this behavior, to repent and to move forward. But he’s not doing it.”
The photographs that seem to have been the final straw featured Disick touching 25-year-old stylist Bartoli’s back as they lounged near a pool. On Friday, the reality star was photographed holding a beer as he spent time aboard a luxury yacht with Bartoli and a group of friends. “He’s operating out of fear and shame right now. He’s not seeing things clearly,” the Disick source added. Disick’s struggle with sobriety was a prominent topic on the most recently season of Keeping Up with the Kardashians, which also featured the birth of the couple’s third child, Reign Aston, in December. (They also have a son, Mason, 5, and a daughter, Penelope, 2.)
“I definitely go in and out of happy and dark places in my life, and I wish that I could be a little more consistent, and I wish it was a little bit easier for me to be under control, but it’s not,” Disick said during a May episode of KUWTK.
Welp, we never saw this coming! Scott has been keeping up with the Kardashians from the very beginning; he was on the very first episode of their reality show and they’ve been together before they began filming. It’s sad to see them break up after all this time, all they went through and especially after three kids together – Mason 5, Penelope 3 and Reign who is only 6 months old. Scott clearly has some deep rooted issues, we’ve seen him break mirrors and over dose on TV, and by watching every season, fans have all noticed a darker side to him the last two years due to the sudden loss of both of his parents, his mother passed away in November 2013 and his father died shortly after in January 2014. He was the only child and has no other family outside the Kardashians. That can spiral anyone out of control going through such a heavy loss on top of already not being able to control addictions. It’s really sad.
From watching the show you also see Kourtney be very emotional-less, all about her kids (as she should be) but never really about Scott. We see her being a ride or die for him by always sticking by his side through addictions, but we also see her neglecting him, bringing him down and not paying any attention to him. She’s said it’s easier to not pay attention and let him do whatever he wants because she doesn’t care or have the time to care about what his whereabouts. I find it to be a recipe for disaster when you don’t even share the same bedroom with your partner. On one episode of Kourtney & Khloe Take Hamptons, Khloe forced them to sleep together and spend that quality time, and the next morning she found Scott sleeping in the bathroom floor because Kourtney kicked him out. When you see their home he has his own bedroom and she has the master room…it’s sad and wrong on so many levels. Numerous times he’s expressed how she makes him feel like a sperm donor and not significant in her life, and she’s stated many times she doesn’t know anything about his past or what he does or doesn’t do because she doesn’t pay attention and doesn’t care. It’s the worst feeling when you feel as though you don’t matter. I am not married nor do I have kids but I believe it to be super important to put your relationship first and have a strong foundation for your children. He’s also wanted to propose, purchased a ring and she has stated many times she doesn’t want to get married. I think Kourtney got so caught up in being a mother and stopped trying to catch up with her boyfriend that eventually he got tired of chasing after her.
Still, I do think there has to come a time where enough is enough and you put in the hard work it takes to get yourself to fight against your addictions. I also don’t think it was smart of him to host parties every weekend in clubs where alcohol and drugs is clearly everywhere. He was probably overwhelmed with being a father and wasn’t ready for a child after another and he is probably still going through grief over the loss of his parents. Kourtney wasn’t as empathic to him and he’s said “I wish she knew what was I going through.” Seems like they both played a part in their break up, and hopefully they can start fresh by putting their relationship first, sleeping in the same room, Scott gets the help he needs and Kourtney paying attention to her mate and giving him the time and love he needs, and becoming a family again.
