Kourtney Kardashian and Scott Disick were together for what feels like an eternity. The two have children together and were seemingly inseparable for years, but things began to change, and not for the good. What was it that caused the couple to finally call it quits? Well, most of the issues can be attributed to raucous and debaucherous behavior on the part of Disick, who couldn’t seem to keep other women out of the picture or stay sober for extended periods of time. Still, the couple tried to work things out multiple times and it just never seemed to come together. When did the problems start and what exactly happened?
To truly understand the whole relationship and the context that came with it, we must start from the beginning. In 2006, both Kourtney and Scott were introduced by a mutual friend, Joe Francis, at his house in Mexico. Not long after, the two were dating and undoubtedly going strong. That is until the first major problem arose. In 2009, Kardashian caught Disick texting another woman on his phone who happened to suspiciously be under the name ‘My Wife’. It was enough to cause a temporary split until the birth of their first son, Mason, in which they got back together.
Like every couple that gets back together and reconciles, things once again began well for the couple. This wouldn’t last, though, as Disick fell into a big partying stage and was constantly out and about, drinking to absurdum. The ability of Disick to stay sober on a consistent basis, in addition to, the inability to be a good father to Mason led to much strain between the two. In the show, Kourtney and Khloe Take Miami, Kardashian told Disick, “There’s not even a one percent chance… I can’t do this anymore. I love Mason more than I love you and that’s what it is.”
But of course, the couple once again got back together. For a while, it seemed that Disick was getting his act together and being the father we all knew he could be. The couple even went on to have two more children, Penelope and Reign, who were born in 2012 and 2014, respectively. Unfortunately, not even the birth of two more children would curb Disick’s ways, as he got back into the party scene. The final straw between Kardashian and him was when he was spotted out drinking with a group of women that happened to include his ex-girlfriend.
Ultimately, Kardashian and Disick broke up for good in 2015. There was no getting back together, this time. While the infidelity and partying certainly contributed to the demise of their relationship, Kardashian recently opened up about what truly exacerbated the problems within their relationship. She believes that everything has to be handled with the media always right there really put a strain between them and made it difficult to work through their problems together. Kardashian shared, “I shared everything from my relationship with Scott — everything — to where all these people were involved in my relationship and it was horrible for our relationship.” As for now, Kourtney is walking away from the show, Keeping Up With the Kardashians, to focus on her children and being a better mom. It’s currently unclear what role Disick has with the kids they share.
