Tonight on the Keeping Up With The Kardashians wedding special, Kim’s wedding wasn’t the only focus of the show. Kourtney confided to her partner Scott Disick that she was pregnant, and had known about it for several weeks without telling him. He didn’t react with joy, or even with mixed emotions, he was completely upset and overwhelmed by the news. Scott has been going through a really rough time since he lost both his parents within months of each other.
Throughout the episode Scott talked about his depression, and feeling like he can barely take care of himself and his other two children. Because of Scott’s reaction, Kourtney didn’t want to tell her family, but Scott went ahead and told Khloe. Khloe didn’t know what to say to him since he was so upset about the situation.
Later, Scott went to an event in Cancun, Mexico, and when he landed back in L.A. he phoned to tell Kourtney he had landed, but did not come home that night. He said he might go out to dinner with his friend Scott Sartiano, but Kourtney called him and he said they didn’t go out together. When Scott came home looking worse for wear, Kourtney confronted him.
“I’m glad that you’re home safe,” Kourtney said. “But I just want you to know that it’s not okay, like you have a family. You can’t just say, ‘I landed, and then not never contact us. Like, that’s crazy. And not to mention I couldn’t sleep all night. I was worried, I kept checking your room every second thinking that you were literally dead.”
“I definitely feel horrible that I put Kourtney through a rough time, especially now that she is pregnant,” Scott said in interview. “But I honestly didn’t want to get back to reality, and I didn’t want to face anybody. It’s just a lot on my plate right now, especially with everything else that I’ve dealt with in the past year. I should have made a responsible decision, but I didn’t.”
Kourtney noted that she wanted to help Scott, but she doesn’t know what to do and feels like she doesn’t have any support of herself. Kourtney discussed Scott going to rehab with her mom, but Kris pointed out that she didn’t think Scott could talk about his problems in a group because of his social anxiety.
Kourtney decided that maybe it would be good to go back to the Hamptons for the summer because that’s where Scott had good memories with his family. Scott reacted badly to that suggestion, saying that the time to spend the summer in the Hamptons was “over” now, and he seemed angry that Kourtney was just now suggesting they do this after his parents died.
Eventually Scott and Kourtney had a better conversation, and he expressed in a more calm manner that he was frustrated that Kourtney had declined his parents invitation to visit them in The Hamptons for summer for years, and it felt weird suddenly going there after they were gone. Of course, there’s another reason for the family spending the summer at the Hamptons, they’re filming a spin-off reality series there with Khloe. While they were there Scott had to hospitalized for alcohol poisoning.
Kourtney later told Kim that Scott threatened to move out of the country if she had the baby, but then he softened up and was nicer. “I’m scared, yes, about having another child, and I definitely didn’t take it the right way, but God willing, like every other child I’ve had, they’ve become amazing and blessings in my life. I just need to think of the positives, relax, and enjoy the third time around.”
