Keeping Up with the Kardashians star, Kourtney Kardashian, met her long-term boyfriend, Scott Disick, during America’s very own Dark Ages. While wars and financial crises shook the country’s core, Kardashian and Disick partied like Girls Gone Wild, literally.
The franchise’s owner, Joe Francis, introduced the entrepreneurs at his mansion in Mexico. As Bustle reported, Francis said, “I introduced Kourtney and Scott at my house in Mexico [in 2006]. Scott came as the guest of a friend of mine, and they met in my master bedroom.” As if Cupid shot his arrow, their torrid relationship began. Kudos to Cupid; he nailed an everlasting bullseye.
In 2009, Kardashian announced her first pregnancy. She was excited about motherhood, but her younger sister, Khloe, was concerned. She thought Disick was too immature and selfish for fatherhood, but Kardashian remained positive. According to an Us Weekly article, Khloe huffed, “I’m so disappointed in you. I think this is disgusting and he is disgusting, and I want nothing to do with him.”
Before Kardashian’s surprising news, Disick was televised as an alcoholic. His drunken stupors and boozy fights alarmed family and friends. In their opinion, he needed rehabilitation before responsibility. His slovenly behavior eventually triggered Kardashian’s departure. However, their firstborn, Mason, was a perpetual reminder of their unbreakable bond. Like a spiraling addiction, the two celebrities relapsed into each other’s arms.
Unfortunately, love wasn’t the only drug. Disick transcended his intake to another level, and his lavish parties made Woodstock seem tame. Loved ones knew he was sick with an untreated brain disease. On a frightening episode of Kourtney and Khloe Take The Hamptons, he overdosed on prescription pills and alcohol. A Daily Mail article detailed, “Cameras caught him downing numerous drinks — then cutting to him in the hospital … Scott admitted that it might be time for help.”
Until Disick is happy, healthy, and sober, his communication with Kardashian should remain strictly platonic. His recovery is so important, and rushed intimacy could result in deathly consequences.
