Kourtney Kardashian may be through with Scott Disick, but Kris Jenner is not. In fact, the Kardashian/Jenner matriarch is begging and pleading with him to ‘sober up and come home,’ HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY learned. But is Scott ready to face reality?
Kris Jenner, 59, has always treated Scott Disick, 32, like one of her own, and she’s not ready to let him throw his life away — and certainly not his family. While Scott isn’t yet ready to deal with the reality of his split from longtime partner Kourtney Kardashian, 36, Kris is going out on a limb to get him cleaned up so he can come home. So far, she’s been able to work some of her magic, but she still has a long way to go. Here’s the EXCLUSIVE scoop.
“Kris is after [Scott] to sober up and come home, but hasn’t been able to convince him. Most of all, Kris begged and pleaded with him to call Kourtney and his children,” an insider tells HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY. Scott’s phone call to his kids brought tears to his eyes after they begged him to come home. Our source adds that Scott is “lost and embarrassed and not sure what to do.”
“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,” our insider continues, saying that “Kris has been hounding Scott like no one else.”
“Kris can be relentless and she would not stop calling and messaging him until he spoke to her,” our insider says. “Kris has always treated Scott fairly and not judged him too harshly. Kris cares for Scott and wants him to get cleaned up. She has always respected Scott’s business and marketing mind as well and often bounced ideas off of him. So it makes sense that Kris is the one person who is able to get through to him even a little bit.”
While we understand Kourtney’s reasoning for kicking Scott to the curb after his non-stop partying became out of control, it’s also nice that Kris isn’t giving up on Scott either. Sure, he was caught getting handsy with his ex-girlfriend, Chloe Bartoli, but regardless, Scott is still the dad to Kourtney’s kids and it’s important to get him the help he needs.
