As Kourtney Kardashian struggles with her split from Scott Disick, she’s been forced to handle even more heartbreak: explaining the situation to her little ones, Mason and Penelope.
It’s a conversation Kourtney Kardashian, 36, never wanted to have. After calling it quits with Scott Disick, 32, the Keeping Up With The Kardashians beauty took it upon herself to tell their children, Mason, 5, and Penelope, 3, why daddy hasn’t been around lately. A source tells HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY about the emotional talk between Kourt and her kids.
“Since Scott hasn’t been around, Kourtney finally had to have a talk with Mason and Penelope who have been asking a lot of questions,” a source tells HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY. “Kids are smart and they knew something was wrong and that their daddy was gone for way too long. Kourtney sat them down and did her best to explain that their daddy wasn’t going to live with them anymore.”
Kourtney finally had enough with Scott and ended their 9-year relationship on July 6 — just days after he was spotted engaging in some inappropriate PDA with his rumored former flame, Chloe Bartoli, 25, while vacationing in Monaco. However, she is still weary of divulging all of those details to Mase and P.
“It took all her strength no to fall apart. It was difficult for them to grasp and truly heartbreaking for Kourtney,” our insider explains about the daunting discussion. “She made sure not to slam Scott to the kids because she knows how important it is for them to have positive feelings towards him even if she doesn’t.”
While he’d been absent for almost a month, Lord Disick finally made time to hang with his kiddos amid all the relationship drama with Kourtney. Because after all, he is their dad. The father-of-three clocked in some serious QT with his cuties while his ex was out supporting Caitlyn Jenner, 65, at the 2015 ESPYs on July 15.
He hung out with Mason, Penelope and Reign, 6 mos., at the family’s Calabasas, CA manse, according to TMZ — which is a HUGE deal given that their mom previously changed all the locks on the doors so Scott couldn’t come back — and had also threatened to never let him see his babies unsupervised.
