Why Kourtney Kardashian needs to dump Scott Disick's ass, once and for all
Everyone who’s been Keeping Up with the Kardashians knows that Scott Disick and Kourtney Kardashian have had a volatile relationship, to say the least. It’s been almost 10 years since we were introduced to Kardashian and Disick, and that means it’s been about 10 years since I have been waiting for them to break up for good.
It’s been almost a year since Disick and Kardashian officially parted ways in July of 2015, and so far, the two have shown no signs of getting back together. And sources say a reconciliation is unlikely to happen anytime soon. “They are very, very unlikely to get back together,” a source revealed to People. To those of you sad about this news, let’s take a step back and evaluate the situation. Kardashian and Disick should not get back together. In fact, I think they need a clean break, and here’s why.
1. Kardashian wants to change Disick
Change can be good, but I’m pretty sure you shouldn’t want someone to change who they are entirely in a relationship. Yet that’s exactly what Kardashian wants if she were to get back together with Disick. “She would never say never, but he needs to completely change his personality,” a source told People of their odds. Think about that for a minute — to get back together with Kardashian, the mother of his three children, Disick would have to “completely change his personality,” as in become an entirely different person. Instead of wasting her time praying for Disick to change, maybe it’s time for Kardashian to just accept that he’s not right for her and move on.
2. They want different things
It’s become clear from Keeping Up with the Kardashians that Kardashian and Disick do not want the same things out of life. While Disick would rather be out on the town, Kardashian prefers to stay in with her kids. Kardashian prefers to eat strictly organic and healthy foods, while Disick doesn’t seem to care all that much. I’m not saying that opposites can’t make it work, or that one of them is wrong and the other is right, but it just seems like Disick and Kardashian want different things, and that’s OK.
3. Disick has not stopped drinking
Despite his rehab stint following his split from Kardashian in 2015, Disick has reportedly not quit drinking — just like he didn’t quit drinking last time he went to rehab either. Now, it’s not my place to say that Kardashian shouldn’t be with Disick because of his addiction issues. However, Disick’s sobriety and struggle with addiction has been well documented throughout the Kardashian reality empire, so it’s fair to say that Disick has put himself up for examination from the masses.
His decision not to quit drinking makes him a ticking time bomb in my eyes, especially considering his infamous drunken breakdown during a season of Kourtney and Khloé Take Miami, which ended with Kardashian and baby Mason leaving their apartment in a hurry as Disick punched a mirror in the bathroom. Over the years, Disick has been on and off the wagon more times than Kim Kardashian has gotten married, which is really saying something. And it doesn’t take an expert to know that this kind of erratic behavior, especially where alcohol is concerned, isn’t conducive to a solid relationship.
4. Disick is unreliable
Disick’s addiction problems aside, he’s never been a reliable guy, even when sober. Time and time again, we’ve seen him flake on plans, be late to family events and ditch Kardashian and their kids to hang out with friends. Disick is just plain unreliable, and Kardashian deserves better.
5. They're co-parenting
This one isn’t so much a reason that they should break up, but more of a reason why it’s fine if Disick and Kardashian never get back together. If this season of Keeping Up with the Kardashians has proved anything about their relationship post-split, it’s that both of them want to do their best to co-parent their three children. Of course, navigating their new dynamic is difficult for both of them, but the fact that they put effort into co-parenting shows that they can still be a family if they aren’t together, and that’s no easy feat.
At the end of the day, Kardashian and Disick are adults, and they can do whatever they want to do with their lives and their relationship. But as long as I'm watching all the drama unfold on television, I'm going to keep rooting for Kardashian to dump Disick for good.
