“I couldn’t make the job of being with her, so I say hi to Travis. Like, he’s in a lot of work. Kourtney is not the simplest when it comes to…everything.”
By now, we all know that Kourtney Kardashian and Travis Barker are the most PDA-heavy couple on the internet.
The two got engaged last October after less than a year of dating, but seemed to have remained in the honeymoon phase over the course of their relationship.
And one person who wasn’t entirely on board with their PDA-heavy romance was Kourtney’s ex-boyfriend, Scott Disick.
In fact, when Kourtney and Travis first announced their engagement, multiple sources claimed that Scott was “out of his mind” and “about to freak out.”
For a bit of context, Kourt and Scott, who share three children: Mason, Penelope, and Reign, dated on and off for nearly 10 years, ending things for good in 2015.
Their tumultuous relationship has been rocked by several sources of contention over the years, including Scott’s problems with substance abuse and several cheating scandals.
And Kourtney’s eventual decision to split with Scott came after she gave him opportunity after opportunity to improve his behavior, to no avail.
The two have remained great friends and good parents over the years, and Kourtney even considered rekindling things with Scott, who has long been a key member of the Kardashians’ inner circle, years after they split. .
And while the two struck up other relationships after they split for good, it seemed like Kourt had always held a special place in Scott’s heart, so much so that last year he expressed his desire to marry her one day.
“I love you and I’m ready to marry you here and now,” he told Kourtney, adding that “they would eventually get married and live a good life.”
But of course, she began publicly dating her now-fiancé Travis in early 2021 and hasn’t looked back since. In fact, Kourt now credits this relationship with Travis as her happiest yet.
And now, in the latest episode of the Hulu show The KardashiansWe’ll get a closer look at Scott’s feelings about Kourtney and Travis’ relationship, including his raw reaction to the news of their engagement.
After Travis’ surprise proposal to Kourtney turned out to be a huge success, everyone in attendance, including all the Kar-Jenner ladies, Travis’s three children from his previous relationship, and several other close family friends, celebrated in his suite. of Santa Barbara hotel.
But the sisters quickly thought of Scott, who would no doubt have been heartbroken by the news.
Deciding not to let her anticipation of Scott’s emotions get in the way of Kourt’s big night, they end up discussing things days later, with Khloé, who is famous for having a very close relationship with Scott, showing up at her door with a care package for him. as she asks him exactly how he’s coping.
Scott begins by stating that he will “always love” Kourtney, although he says that the whole thing was not a surprise to him.
“It didn’t take me by surprise. I mean, I thought they’d already been married, from the way she was talking. So she wasn’t crazy.”
“Thank God. Because at another point in my life, if I had heard that, life would have been over for me,” she admits, before expressing her “relief” that “someone else is looking out for her.”
In a confessional, Scott adds: “I always felt like it was my fault for breaking up our family. So I always felt like I had a responsibility to be there for her and take care of her and make sure she was okay, even though we weren’t together. I just felt that guilt. It was a lot to handle.”
But then, in an awkward turn of events, Scott changes his tune and starts berating Kourtney for what he describes as “a lot of work” to put up with.
“In a selfish way, I feel like so much has been taken away from me,” she tells Khloé.
“I think in the end it’s a good thing. I couldn’t do the job of being with her,” he says, sighing audibly.
“So I say hello to Travis. He has a lot of work,” she says, before going on to say that Kourtney is “not the simplest when it comes to…everything”.
Khloé says in a confessional: “This is just him being sarcastic. He is acting. I am not going to be combative and back down… I understand what he is doing.”
“If Kourtney was such a big problem, why would I want to be with her for so many years?” she asked.
This is the first reaction we see from Scott to the news of the engagement. However, his candid thoughts on Kourtney and Travis’ PDA were made public last year after some of his messy direct messages were exposed on Instagram.
Last August, Scott messaged another one of Kourtney’s exes, Younes Bendjima, whom he openly disliked, dragging her and Travis into a photo of them kissing in Italy on vacation.
“Yo, is this girl alright? Scott wrote alongside a paparazzi photo of the couple. “Broooo like what is this. In the middle of Italy.
But Younes clearly wasn’t interested in venting about Kourtney, replying, “I don’t care as long as she’s happy” and adding, “PS I’m not your brother” before going public with the whole thing on his Instagram story.
And just last month, we finally got the behind-the-scenes scoop on how Kourtney and Scott handled that incredibly awkward exchange, with Kourt revealing in The Kardashians that he had sent her a humiliating apology.
“When I was in Italy with Travis for our summer vacation, I woke up to a text from Scott saying, ‘I’m so sorry. I DMed your ex-boyfriend who I can’t stand,” Kourtney tells his sisters. “He sent me a screenshot and said he posted it on his story.”
“So I wrote to him: ‘This is despicable. Your actions must match your desire to be a part of this and act like one,’” he continued.
