Scott Disick might help usher Kendall Jenner out of reality television.
After rumors swirled that Kendall was having an affair with the 31-year-old Disick — who just welcomed his third child with her sister Kourtney — sources close to the family say Kendall was mortified. With her budding modeling career on the line, reports indicate that Kendall is ready to quit reality television and focus on her own career.
“Kendall says this whole story makes her look cheap and it’s not the kind of publicity that she wants,” a source told Hollywood Life. “Her sisters, including Kourtney, are telling her not let it bother her, but she is just beside herself.”
Unlike her sisters, who have embraced the fame that the Keeping Up With The Kardashians empire has brought, Kendall reportedly wants to earn her own way in the entertainment industry. She has already walked the runway for Chanel, Marc Jacobs, and Givenchy, with industry insiders saying Kendall is building her reputation on her own merit rather than her famous family.
The reports of an affair with Scott Disick now have Kendall ready to quit the show.
“Kendall is now questioning whether or not she should remain on the show. She doesn’t want to be known as a reality star, she wants to be taken seriously,” the source said.
This is not the first time that Scott Disick has caused drama in the Kardashian family. He has had some well-publicized problems with drinking and partying, with longtime girlfriend Kourtney reportedly issuing an ultimatum last year after he landed in the hospital with alcohol poisoning.
Kendall isn’t the first member of the family rumored to be having an affair with Scott, either. He and Khloe Kardashian have an unusually close relationship, leading many to believe that they are secretly in a relationship.
Khloe even took the opportunity to bring up these rumors when talking about Scott’s alleged new affair with Kendall, with Scott playing along.

But the while sources say the rumors of Scott Disick and Kendall Jenner having an affair are far-fetched, the reports of he and Khloe hooking up might have some credence. RadarOnline reported that Scott has moved in with Khloe to give Kourtney some space, and that Scott has been partying almost non-stop since then.
