Kourtney Kardashian is “so miserable” since breaking up with boyfriend Scott Disick that she’s moping around the house, say her friends.
“Kourtney is miserable at the moment, so miserable,” a source told People July 23. As Kardashian fights for sole custody of her three children with Scott, Disick was photographed on a father-son outing with Mason, 5. In a touching Instagram photo, Scott called Mason his “best friend.”
Kourtney and Scott are also parents to 3-year-old daughter Penelope and 7-month-old son Reign. Not surprisingly, Kourtney, who’s now a single mom, has been spending almost all her time with her children.
Despite speculation that Scott and Kourtney’s breakup was a publicity stunt to promote their reality TV show, Disick’s belongings were moved out of the home he once shared with Kardashian and into a $3.5 million Beverly Hills home he bought as an investment property.
Sources said Kourtney dumped Scott days after he was photographed partying in the South of France with ex-girlfriend, Chloe Bartoli (see video). Scott, 32, and Kourtney, 36, began dating in 2006.
While many “Keeping Up With the Kardashians” fans are siding with Kourtney since the breakup, Kourtney and Scott’s relationship has not been happy for years. Disick revealed on “KUWTK” that he and Kourtney have not slept in the same bedroom since son Mason was born in 2009.
Scott’s nonstop partying and alcoholism also contributed to their rocky relationship, and was a major reason why Kourtney refused to marry him.
Disick’s alcohol and drug abuse were recurring story lines on “Keeping Up With the Kardashians.” In June 2014, Scott was hospitalized for alcohol poisoning after admitting he was suffering severe depression following the shocking deaths of both his parents.
Scott’s mother, Bonnie, died in October 2013 at age 63. Three months later, Scott’s father, Jeffrey Disick, also died. No cause of death was provided in either instance.
Scott to Kourtney: ‘You Keep Suckering Me Into Having These Kids’
On the season 9 finale of “Keeping Up With the Kardashians,” Disick got upset after Kourtney revealed she was pregnant with their third child. Disick said he loved being a father, but was overwhelmed at the idea of having a third unplanned baby.
“You just keep suckering me into having these kids,” said Scott. “I can’t handle this responsibility. I just can’t take care of more kids. I can barely take care of myself. I am hanging on by a string. I’m so f***ing tired. I’ve hit rock bottom.”
In a promo video for their spin-off reality TV show “Kourtney and Khloe Take the Hamptons,” Scott was shown being rushed to the hospital after apparently swallowing an entire bottle of pills. The overdose was reported in the media as a suicide attempt, but that speculation was exaggerated.
Kourtney was heard screaming in the background, “He took the entire thing, every pill!” as the camera shows an empty bottle of pills surrounded by beer bottles.
Since that incident, Kourtney and Scott have argued both publicly and privately over his drinking, drug use and partying, culminating in their break-up in June.
