Over the years, Kourtney Kardashian stood by Scott Disick through his horrible behavior and substance abuse problems — until, well, she just couldn’t put herself through the agony of staying with him anymore.
Kardashian and Disick have pretty much been off and on for the duration of their 10-year relationship, but they split in the summer of 2015, and for the first time, the split stuck. Kardashian must have finally realized that she’ll never be able to change Disick, and it seems she would be right — save for a couple of very brief failed attempts at quitting his hard-partying ways, he still club-hops and hosts events at watering holes on a regular basis.
But now, Disick reportedly wants to clean up — for reals, this time — in a last-ditch effort to get Kardashian and the rest of his family back.
“He’s been eating clean, exercising and looking after the kids,” a source recently told In Touch magazine. “And most importantly, he’s three or four weeks sober now.”
Disick might have gained some new-found clarity in his sobriety.
“Scott’s the first to admit he put Kourtney and the kids through hell and he doesn’t probably deserve any sympathy, let alone a reunion,” the source added. “But he’s giving it a try and wants to prove that he’s capable of being a better person, for the kids as much as himself.”
It’s great that Disick has decided to clean up and get healthy, but is it too little, too late? After all of the times he was out all night partying while Kardashian stayed home alone with the kids worrying about him and their young family, it’s hard to imagine that things could ever return to a cohesive unit. Kardashian seems to have gotten her life together, and Disick is probably barking up the wrong tree if he thinks he’s going to get her back.
Even Disick admitted last spring that he wasn’t ready for reconciliation at that point.
“There are things we both have to work on,” he said in an interview. “We’re at a good place, [but] I don’t think either of us wants any more than where we’re at.”
What do you think? Does Disick have a snowball’s chance in hell of getting back with Kardashian?
