Kourtney Kardashian's tumultuous relationship with ex-boyfriend Scott Disick has been well documented, both on social media and in the press, and there's always speculation as to whether or not Kardashian and Disick are together or apart. Her sisters haven't been subtle about wanting Kardashian to find a new romantic partner, so it's not hard to imagine that Kardashian, who has three children — Mason, Penelope and Reign — with Disick, might be frustrated by the state of (and the rumors about) her love life, and it looks like she's seeking help from an unlikely source.

On Aug. 2, Kardashian shared a Snapchat in which she revealed that her doctor had prescribed her a "love potion," after telling Kardashian he believes she subconsciously thinks she doesn't deserve love.

The KUWTK star has been directed to put 32 drops of the potion into a bottle of water and drink from it throughout the day. I have so many questions: Who is this doctor? What is in this potion? Has it been prescribed to other celebrities? If it works, can we get our hands on it? Kardashian admitted to not knowing "what the hell it does," and laughed about it with her hair and makeup crew in the Snapchat.

Could it be working, though? Kardashian isn't sure, but in late July, Kardashian and Disick vacationed in Nantucket with their three children, and Disick described the break as "very, very relaxing." Did the vacation result in a mini-reunion or is their break still intact? The two have worked hard to co-parent well in spite of the ups and downs of their relationship, which ended in July 2015 after almost 10 years. Disick has battled addiction and has also been linked to model Lina Sandberg, but as viewers of KUWTK know, he's always made it clear that he hopes for a reunion of some kind with Kardashian.
