Kourtney Kardashian Refuses to Let Scott Disick’s Addiction Disrupt Her Life
Kourtney Kardashian seems to be learning a lot about boundaries now that she and Scott Disick have split up. Anyone who has ever gone through a breakup will know that it’s not easy to just shut the door – especially if you share kids with your ex.
While on a trip to Santa Barbara during this week’s episode of Keeping Up with the Kardashians, Kourtney mostly stayed glued to her phone after little sister, Kendall Jenner, asked about a girl he had been photographed with. Instead of focusing on the drama, Kourtney said something sensible: “I don’t know who she is, but she’s not really concerning to me. I’m really just concerned with his health. I keep hearing that he’s out of control, people have [told] me he’s not going to make it for his birthday if he continues like this.”
Still, she seemed to recognize that, even though he needs to get his life on track, it’s not up to her to make those changes for him. “He needs to help himself,” she explained. “I think people don’t bother me with any information about Scott unless it’s to the point where they really think that I need to know. It’s kind of like the same scenario, once again. I feel helpless because I don’t always know what to do because it’s been so many years of trying. It’s just stressful because he is my kids’ father.”
“I want him to be happy and healthy,” she told Khloé. “But I don’t think I need to sacrifice my own happiness” adding that she has to “break the cycle of always being there [for him]. I need to change it up and see if that makes any difference.”
Khloe seemed to support this new position and said, “I think a lot of it he does to get attention from you. This cycle is is not beneficial to anybody. … It affects you and your kids.”
Of their children, Mason, 7, Penelope, 5, and Reign, 2, Kourtney said, ““I don’t want the kids to see him like this. We’ve been in the same pattern for 10 years plus — if there was something I could do to help Scott help his situation or help his addiction, I would do it in a heartbeat. But I’ve learned it’s out of my control.”
To help Kourtney find some peace so that she could enjoy the rest of her trip, Kim stopped by to check on Scott who said, “People call her for anything and everything. Some of it is realistically true. … I have times where I am out of control. But you can tell Kourtney to have a good weekend and rest assured I’m fine.”
After gaining some perspective, Kim told her sister, “It’s all good. I would just tell everyone to stop calling you … it’s not your problem anymore. You have to enjoy a bonding trip with your sisters in Santa Barbara. It’s for one or two nights. He needs to chill.”
“I think Kim’s right about Scott,” Kourtney said. “I feel like I need to let go and have fun.”
Let’s hope this situation finally gets under control if for no other reason than for the sake of their children. Keeping Up with the Kardashians airs Sundays (9 p.m. ET) on E!
