Scott Disick Is Taking Some Time Away From The Kardashians To “Process” Kourtney Kardashian’s Engagement
According to People Magazine, Scott Disick is still reeling from the news that the mother of his children, Kourtney Kardashian, is planning to marry another. And it would almost be romantic if Scott was a different sort of man. But Scott is Scott and his idea of romance is limited to whatever teenage girls think is romantic, so you know Travis Barker’s sea of red roses proposal to Kourtney, really hit him where it hurts. People says that Scott is taking some time to “distance himself” from the Kardashian Klan in order to “process this and make his peace.” It seems Scott did not think that a relationship between two adults of approximately the same age could ever go the distance!
It’s been less than a week since Kourtney and Travis got engaged on the beach in front of the Rosewood Miramar Beach Hotel in Montecito, California, surrounded by friends and family (read: a camera crew for an upcoming reality show for Hulu). And it’s been 6 years since Scott and Kourtney were last together. And even though Kourtney and Travis have only been dating since the beginning of the year, Scott totally should have seen this coming. I mean, we’ve all seen Kourt and Scott coming — all over the place! People reports:
Scott Disick is taking some time to process ex Kourtney Kardashian’s recent engagement to Travis Barker, a source tells PEOPLE.
Kardashian and Disick, 38, dated on and off for nearly a decade before breaking up for good in 2015. They share three children: Mason, 11, Penelope, 9, and Reign, 6.
Following the news of the engagement, Disick is distancing himself from his ex’s famous family in order to “make his peace” with the engagement news, according to the source.
“Scott hasn’t really wanted to deal with Travis and Kourtney because he didn’t feel like he’d have to,” the source says. “At first, it seemed like it was just a casual relationship to him, nothing serious. So he pretty much put that on mute. Hasn’t been giving it too much brainpower, thinking that eventually, they’d break up.”
Scott was probably thinking “they’ve both been out of high school for decades, what would they even talk about?” since he’s used to his dates filling in the silence by constantly asking him if what he’s saying is going to be on the test.
The source continues, “But that didn’t happen and now he’s being forced to deal with it, which is uncomfortable. He knows he has to lean into the discomfort and get past it. He understands that it’s not Kourtney’s job or Travis’s job to make him okay with this. It’s his job, and if he’s going to co-parent with Kourtney, which he has been, he has to process this and make his peace with it.”
The source says “distancing himself from the family” is a way for Disick to achieve that. “It’s not about them, it’s not about Kourtney. It’s about him needing some time to process this and deal with it on his own, without them. He’ll come around soon.”
Somebody just needs to remind him that the blended family they’re about to form will include Travis and his ex-wife Shanna Moakler’s two teenage children he can offer to drive to school, giving him a perfectly respectable reason to loiter in the parking lot!
