From hosting club events to being with mystery women, reports say Scott Disick‘s recent behavior is just a result of the pain he’s feeling after ruining his nine-year relationship with baby-mama Kourtney Kardashian.
“He really does want to be honorable, but the temptations are just too strong,” reports a source to People close to the Kardashian fam. “He’s acting out because he’s in pain, and he’s in a spiral.”
Fourth of July weekend, the mother of his three kids— Mason, 5, Penelope, 3, and Reign, 7 months—dumped her longtime boyfriend after he was photographed getting cozy with ex-girlfriend Chloe Bartoli.
“I think Scott doesn’t realize how dangerous his partying really is,” the source adds. “When he’s partying, he’s distracted. He’s not focused on the right things. He says it’s his job, but it’s voluntary for him. He doesn’t need the money. And I don’t think he realizes how insidious his behavior really is. And I don’t think he gets it. If he did understand it, he’d stop.”
