Kourtney Kardashian and Scott Disick’s breakup is old news, but the split did not hit Keeping Up with the Kardashians until tonight. Despite having known for a long time about Disick’s European bender and the subsequent end of his relationship with Kardashian, fans of the show were very saddened by the events that transpired during tonight’s episode.
Thus far this season, fans of Keeping Up with the Kardashians have been waiting with bated breath for Disick’s terrible behavior and the ensuing breakup with his longtime girlfriend and baby mama. Tonight, the breakup drama finally arrived, and it was just as crazy as fans expected, if not worse. Still, despite seeing how awful Kardashian’s life had become, a lot of fans seemed really sad about her breakup.
Fans’ sadness was prompted, in part, by Kardashian’s obvious concern for her baby daddy’s health. Although she had every right to be angry with Lord Disick, Kardashian was mostly worried that he was going to hurt himself while abroad. When she wasn’t worrying about his health, she was suffering mentally and emotionally. After learning about Disick’s shenanigans in Monte Carlo, Kourtney admitted, “I’m just literally on the verge of a mental breakdown.”
Although a few fans were saddened by the difficulties Kardashian faced as her then-boyfriend was messing around in Europe, many others simply didn’t want the two to call it quits — even though this was obviously the best solution for Kardashian. Highlighted below are just a few of the many tweets from disappointed fans:

A few KUWTK fans conceded that Kardashian made the right decision. After all, had she looked the other way, she would have been forced to continue dealing with the Disick-related stress that was already making her life a living hell.

After seeing Disick and Kardashian’s relationship drama play out in the media, it’s interesting to witness it on Keeping Up with the Kardashians. Although critics of the show often claim that it is at least partially scripted, it would be nearly impossible for Kardashian to fake the anxiety and sadness she experienced as she finally decided to let Disick go. If she made the right choice in dumping Disick, this emotional turmoil will eventually dissipate. Unfortunately, fans will have to wait until next season to see how the breakup impacted Kardashian and Disick.
