Scott Disick and Kourtney Kardashian’s split may not go as smoothly as everyone hoped, at least not if momager Kris Jenner has her say. Hollywood Life, reports that Kris Jenner is desperate to keep Scott Disick on the family flagship reality series Keeping Up with the Kardashians. That doesn’t mean that Kris Jenner wants Kourtney and Scott back together, but sources say she doesn’t want to lose Disick completely. Especially after she negotiated a $100 million contract for the family.
Scott Disick may be willing to come back on board. After all, if he leaves Keeping Up with the Kardashians, he walks away from $10 million to be split with Kourtney. As the reports of Disick’s erratic behavior during hosting gigs continue, there is a question of how long promoters will shell out thousands of dollars to book Disick for events he hardly shows up for.
Kris Jenner even seems to have a storyline in mind for Disick. According to sources close to the family, Kris Jenner has been begging Disick to clean up his act and fly back to Los Angeles to reconcile with his family. Maybe Jenner is hoping that Disick can return to work on Keeping Up with the Kardashians and continue battling his demons in front of the camera. Kris hasn’t had much success yet, Disick is on the east coast and doesn’t appear to be headed home or to rehab anytime soon, but she did convince Disick to call Kourtney and his children.
“He knows he needs to come home but doesn’t want to deal with reality. It’s much easier to stay boozed up and party rather than face the music. Still Kris convinced him to man up and call.”
Then again, it might not be so easy for Disick to stay on with the family reality series.
As previously reported by the Inquisitr, Kourtney Kardashian considers Kris Jenner’s contact with Scott Disick a huge betrayal. RadarOnline reports that Kourtney insisted all of the Kardashian family cut ties with Scott, and her sisters complied. Only Kris contacted Disick. Sources say Kourtney thinks that Kris Jenner is motivated by business, not concern for her daughter and grandchildren.
“She knows that Scott and Kourtney’s storyline of constantly fighting for him to get help with his addiction gave the show ratings and that, without him, no one really would care about what Kourtney and the kids were up to.”
If Kris Jenner is intent on managing the situation, she may find that it all explodes and costs her two cast members instead of one. Sources say it doesn’t look like the relationship is salvageable. Even the phone conversation that Kris Jenner prompted didn’t go well.
“He didn’t ask her how she was doing or much about her at all. She asked him where he was and when he was coming back, as they need to sit down and discuss things, but Scott didn’t have many answers. He really just wanted to talk to the kids.”
