SCOTT DISSES KOURTNEY
THE REALITY STAR IS CAUGHT OUT SLAMMING KOURTNEY, BUT DOES SHE EVEN LOOK BOTHERED?
Having conquered his fear of flying with girlfriend Kourtney Kardashian by his side, rocker Travis Barker, who survived a fatal plane crash in 2008, is making up for the lost time. After a romantic getaway in Cabo San Lucas, Mexico, the loved-up pair jetted to Europe. In Italy they openly made out in restaurants, cosied up on a gondola ride and lovingly held hands at the star-studded Dolce & Gabbana Alta Moda Show in Venice. “Kourtney’s always been conscious of being private in past relationships,” a source tells Entertainment Tonight. “But she’s done caring what others think and is enjoying love with Travis.”
One particular moment of the couple’s public passion apparently caught the eye of Kardashian’s ex Scott Disick, with whom she shares Mason, 11, Penelope, 9, and Reign, 6. He saw it fit to send Kardashian’s other ex-boyfriend Younes Bendjima a message about her over-the-top PDA sessions with Barker.
In the message – which Bendjima leaked on Instagram
– Disick appeared to insult a snap of Kardashian straddling her new man while on a boat ride. “Yo is this chick OK! ???? Broooo like what is this. In the middle of Italy.”
Bendjima, an Algerian model who kept a low-profile while dating Kardashian on and off from 2016 until early 2020, wasn’t biting: “Doesn’t matter to me as long as she’s happy. P.S. I ain’t your bro.”
He’s not kidding. During the Keeping Up With the Kardashians reunion episode in June, host Andy Cohen pointed out that Disick seems to get “really upset when Kourtney is linked to other guys”. Disick quipped, “No, I just want to kill them,” before adding, about Bendjima, “Well, the last guy … Let’s all be honest here.”
Disick’s misguided attempt to commiserate with Bendjima, 28, reflects his inability to move on from his past, and was perhaps prompted by his recent rumoured split from Amelia Gray
“She was surprised, but not shocked”
Hamlin, 20. “He had a low moment and was looking to someone who could relate to his feelings, and immediately regretted sending that message,” a source close to Disick tells E! News. “He is bitter because he’s never seen Kourtney this serious about someone.”
In addition to his personal feelings of jealousy, the 38-year-old TV star may be concerned that his professional future is also on the line if he continues to be edged out of his ex’s life by Kardashian’s new rocker beau.
With KUWTK wrapping after 20 seasons, Disick has expressed his worry he would drift apart from the family that made him famous.
In May, Kim Kardashian responded to a fan tweet revealing that Disick will indeed be a part of the family’s updated reality show, set to air later this year. It’s also been teased that Kardashian’s relationship with Barker will be covered so, ironically, this latest DM drama could be just the storyline to give green-eyed Disick more airtime.
But, for now, Kourtney is living in the moment, moving on to Paris to clock up more romantic moments with Barker before flying back home to be with her kids in Los Angeles. A source told WHO’s sister publication People magazine that she plans to confront Disick, whom she’s been getting along with until now, but nothing is bursting her love bubble.
“She was surprised, but not shocked,” says the source of Kardashian’s reaction to the message. “Scott is especially threatened by her relationship with Travis.”
