Is renowned momager and reality television family matriarch Kris Jenner losing her touch? As previously reported by The Inquisitr, Kris Jenner recently recruited Scott Disick for a delicate job. Disick reconnected with Rob Kardashian, Kris Jenner’s only son, just as he went public about his relationship with Blac Chyna. Meanwhile, Disick and Tyga, Kylie Jenner’s rapper boyfriend, have been spotted at several clubs in the past two weeks. By all appearances, Disick is making every attempt to get close to the other men in the Kardashian-Jenner clan on the orders of Kris Jenner. And that may come back to haunt her.
According to TMZ, notorious party animal Scott Disick has already fallen off of the wagon, just 3 months after his last stint in rehab. After his 10-year relationship with Kourtney Kardashian imploded in July 2015 thanks to a cheating scandal, Disick earned his way back into the Kardashian-Jenner clan’s good graces with a trip to rehab. Despite some fans’ hopes, Disick’s attempt at sobriety didn’t win over Kourtney Kardashian, but it did earn him a spot in the family, albeit as the father of Kourtney’s three children, Mason, Penelope, and Reign. When the Kardashian-Jenner clan traveled to New York this week to attend Kanye West’s Yeezy Season 3 fashion show, but Disick was oddly absent.
Disick didn’t join the show of solidarity. Instead, Disick went to Up&Down in New York as a guest of Fetty Wap, and reportedly, Disick drank beer all night. Scott Disick’s struggles with substance abuse are well known, so it isn’t exactly a surprise that he’s struggling again. If Kris Jenner was relying on Scott Disick to keep Tyga and Rob Kardashian on the straight path, who will she get to save Scott Disick?
The most obvious choice is also the least likely. According to People, Kourtney Kardashian has seen this pattern from Scott Disick before. In the Season 10 finale of the family flagship reality show Keeping Up with the Kardashians, Kourtney nailed Disick’s pattern of addiction.
“Scott will be amazing for three months then go out of town and go off the deep end. I don’t know if that’s a pattern I can continue with.”
In fact, the episode ended with Kourtney Kardashian’s decision to end her 10-year relationship with Disick and focus on herself and their children. It seems unlikely that Kourtney will let Scott Disick stay as close to her as he has been in recent months if he’s off the deep end once again. But that doesn’t mean Kris Jenner is out of options.
Lamar Odom is rapidly becoming the Kardashian-Jenner poster child for addiction recovery. As previously reported by The Inquisitr, a cocaine-fueled brothel vacation nearly killed Lamar Odom when he suffered a series of strokes during an overdose. While Lamar’s highly publicized struggles with addiction destroyed his marriage to Khloe Kardashian, his health crisis prompted Khloe to withdraw her divorce petition. At the time, Khloe swore that she only withdrew the divorce to make issues of insurance and medical decisions easier, but it certainly looked like old times when Lamar Odom joined the rest of the Kardashian-Jenner women at Kanye West’s fashion show.
Lamar Odom and Khloe Kardashian’s appearance at Yeezy Season 3 sparked dueling rumors. One rumor says that the estranged couple is days away from reconciling, the other says that Odom is secretly plotting to slap Khloe with divorce papers. Only Lamar Odom knows which rumor is true, but if he is eager to prove himself to Khloe, reaching out to Scott Disick as he struggles with alcoholism may be a good start. The only question is whether Kris Jenner will reach out to Lamar Odom.
