There’s really nothing like the support of family when times are hard. Lucky for Kourtney Kardashian, she has a lot of relatives by her side as she deals with her break up from Scott Disick, including Caitlyn Jenner, who inspired the reality star to finally end things with Scott once and for all. This family is so tight!
When photos surfaced of Scott Disick, 31, getting cozy with rumored ex Chloe Bartoli, 25, in the South of France on July 2, it did not look good. Just days later, on July 6, Kourtney Kardashian, 36, told him things were over. So how did she ultimately decide that enough was enough? Stepdad Caitlyn Jenner, 65, inspired her to move on and leave Scott — this time, for good, according to a source who spoke to HollywoodLife EXCLUSIVELY.
Kourt had a had a heart-to-heart with Caitlyn when she found out that Scott was allegedly cheating on her yet again. The 36-year-old was heartbroken by the revelation, saying that she felt like she was living in a “nightmare” after learning that the father of her three children betrayed her. Caitlyn calmed Kourtney down, and gave her some perspective on the situation.
“Caitlyn also gave Kourtney the inspiration and strength to make her decision,” an insider told HollywoodLife EXCLUSIVELY. “Caitlyn actually likes Scott and never told Kourtney she should definitely dump him. But Caitlyn did talk to Kourtney about how short life is and that she should not live a single day with regret. Caitlyn knew what that was like all too well and she didn’t want to see Kourtney staying in an unhealthy relationship because she was scared of the unknown. Caitlyn’s transition and her kind words really had a deep effect on Kourtney and her decision to leave Scott.”
A beautiful lesson that Kourtney truly took to heart. Caitlyn has gone through a lot in the last year as she transitioned in the public eye, and her reminder that life is short is so bittersweet! She wants Kourt to be happy, and though she doesn’t really hold any ill feeling for Scott, she just wants what’s best for her stepdaughter. So touching.
Kourtney Kardashian Dumped Scott Disick By Text Message
So did Caitlyn give Kourt pointers on how to break ties with Scott too? Apparently, the mom of three didn’t even wait for Scott to get home from his European jaunt before pulling the plug on their relationship, according to a HollywoodLife source. She broke the news via text message!
The craziest part? Scott didn’t even take the angry text seriously! He and Kourt have broken up and gotten together so many times that he just thought it was another threat Kourtney wouldn’t follow up on…until he saw the headlines confirming the news. Wow!
HollywoodLifers, do you think Kourtney should have taken Caitlyn’s advice?
