Scott Disick Posts Kourtney Kardashian’s Nude Photo on Instagram, Compliments ‘KUWTK’ Star’s Physique

Kourtney Kardashian’s nude photo has media outlets and fans alike complimenting her seemingly perfect post-pregnancy body, but at least one compliment came as a bit of a surprise.

On Thursday morning, Scott Disick posted a copy of Kourtney Kardashian’s nude photo on his Instagram account with the caption “Now that’s 1 hot mama.”

A compliment from Kourtney Kardashian’s ex-boyfriend? It wasn’t exactly expected, given the recent history between Kourtney and Scott. The pair, who were together for nearly 10 years, broke up earlier this summer after Scott was seen cozying up with ex-girlfriend Chloe Bartoli in the south of France.

Kourtney Kardashian’s nude photo, seen on Scott’s account, came from a photo shoot she did with photographer Brian Bowen Smith for his Metallic Life series, which will be shown at the De Re Gallery in Los Angeles from Oct. 22-Nov. 19. Some of Kourtney’s nude pictures were published in Vanity Fair on Tuesday.

The photos, which are tasteful, are printed on metallic paper and have “the goal of capturing the vulnerability of the photographer’s subjects,” according to People.

Bowen Smith added that the project “strips men and women bare of our modern society to explore themes of sexuality and uniformity.”

It’s not the first time Kourtney has posed nude for the photographer. When she was pregnant with her third child, Kourtney also did a nude shoot with Bowen Smith for the cover of DuJour magazine.

Scott may have sent a compliment Kourtney’s way on Thursday, but that doesn’t mean the couple is getting back together anytime soon. The Keeping Up With the Kardashians star has kept relatively mum on the subject of reconciliation, but speculation from other sources has run rampant. Though it initially seemed as if Kourtney and Scott might get back together, recent behavior from both parties seems to indicate that the almost decade-long relationship is truly over.

For example, Scott was seen over the weekend cavorting with 18-year-old model Lindsey Vrckovnik (which sources say Kourtney found to be embarrassing). Scott also has been linked to Kimberly Stewart and another young model, Makayla Yarbrough. And those aren’t the only ladies Scott has allegedly hooked up with — he’s also been seen leaving clubs with women and kissing women in public.

Earlier this summer, momager Kris Jenner did a radio interview and said that she hopes Kourtney and Scott eventually work things out and get back together. Kourtney and Scott have three children together: Mason, 5, Penelope, 3, and Reign, 9 months.

“My wish is that, you know, they work it out and figure it out and we’ll see what happens,” Kris Jenner said. “He’s a great dad and he loves the kids and he loves Kourtney… I love him.”

At the same time Kris was speaking kindly of Scott, Caitlyn Jenner was urging Kourtney to move on from the tumultuous relationship, according to what a source told Hollywood Life.

“(Caitlyn) thinks Scott is a sick man who needs professional help. She is a big believer in therapy, and thinks Kourtney would benefit from having that type of support in her life. Caitlyn had told Kourtney multiple times that’s it’s time to move on once and for all.”

Regardless of whether Scott and Kourtney ever reconcile, one thing is obvious: The couple have a lifelong tie to one another through their children, so it’s nice to see Scott tossing a few kind words Kourtney’s way.
