Whether or not you believe in a Scott Disick and Kourtney Kardashian split depends on how much faith you have in the swarm of current articles about the couple. They appeared to break it off in high-profile fashion last fall, following Scott’s fourth stint in rehab; shortly thereafter, though, it looked like they were heading for a post-Thanksgiving reconciliation. Things went south when Scott’s drug use appeared to pick back up; could they have changed once more?
A recent People report avoided any question of the Scott Disick and Kourtney Kardashian split by referring to the couple as “friendly exes,” and described one in a series of outings they had taken their three children on recently. The two “really do seem to be on good terms,” People noted, pointing out the improvement in their relationship. Things were at a low point last month, following accusations that Scott had overdosed on cocaine and nearly died. Kourtney did seem quick to stifle any talk of a reconciliation–”People [who] have three kids together spend time together,” she told the publication. But, as People pointed out, it wasn’t so long ago that the couple were avoiding each other, and that Kourtney had reportedly revoked Scott’s right to visit the kids at all.
Of course, that’s not to say that either party–Scott especially–feels the Scott Disick and Kourtney Kardashian split is necessarily permanent. A new Inquisitr report cited alleged insiders who claimed that, though Scott has a new girlfriend, “there’s no real connection there, like he has with Kourtney.” According to their people, Scott is using model Christine Burke as a sort of placeholder: “Christine is there to fill the void for now, but he would go back to Kourtney in a heartbeat.”
Nor did Scott hold back for Us Weekly, in their report on his feelings for Kourtney. “She’ll always be family to me and probably the person I love the most in the world,” Scott told the publication. He further praised Kourtney’s good looks, pointing out her unflagging dedication to the gym and saying “She’s always had a ridiculous body.”
If those reports are accurate, it sounds like Scott is ready to reconcile. Whether he can convince Kourtney that he’s changed, though, is another matter…
