Poor Mason Disick! While the 5-year-old’s dad, Scott Disick, has been M.I.A., he’s been bonding with uncle Kanye West, and they’ve gotten so close that Mase even questioned whether or not ‘Ye is his ‘new daddy,’ HollywoodLife.com has EXCLUSIVELY learned. Get the scoop on Kanye’s adorable reaction!
Scott Disick, 32, has not only abandoned his longtime girlfriend, Kourtney Kardashian, 36 — he’s also abandoned his three kids! And at five years old, Mason Disick is aware enough to have an idea that something strange is going on, and he’s taken to spending time with Kanye West, 38, while his dad is absent. HollywoodLife.com has the EXCLUSIVE details on their special bond!
While Scott spent Fourth of July weekend partying in Miami, Kourtney stayed at home with Penelope, 3, and Reign, 7 mos., but Mason was lucky enough to take a trip to New York City with aunt Kim Kardashian, 34, Kanye and their daughter, North West, 2. While there, he got to watch fireworks on a boat, and even spend some quality time with Yeezus at the movies, but it turns out, the adorable toddler is even closer with the rapper than we thought.
“Kanye loves the little guy and treats him as if he were his own son,” an insider tells HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY. “Mason can tell something is wrong, and Kanye was really surprised when he asked him, ‘Are you going to be my new daddy?’ Kanye didn’t know what to say.”
And even though Yeezy comes off as a bit cold to the public, he definitely has a soft spot when it comes to kids, because his reaction was the absolute sweetest. “Kanye just told Mason he’s not his father, but he’s his family,” our source explains. “He told him, ‘No matter what happens, I’ll always be here for you and I love you.’ They even cemented their bond with a pinky swear and a big hug.”
Meanwhile, Scott still hasn’t returned home to his family since his break up with Kourtney, which happened after he was photographed indulging in some serious PDA with Chloe Bartoli, 25, in Europe last week. Luckily, Kourtney has had her amazing kids and supportive sisters to lean on during this difficult time.
