Kourtney Seeks Sole Custody of Kids-Will Scott Disick Battle Her in Court?
Kourtney Kardashian may not have a messy divorce to deal with thanks to her refusal to marry boyfriend Scott Disick, but it isn’t stopping her from seeking legal counsel from the divorce lawyer to the stars, Laura Wassar. Kourtney wants to keep her kids protected now that Scott has fallen off the wagon in a very public way.
The two have a history of breaking up, and it isn’t the first time Kourtney has banished Scott from her kingdom though this split appears to be more permanent, despite reports that Kourtney wants Scott back. The reality star has been open about loving Scott and wanting to support him but it looks like she’s finally going to let him reach rock bottom, and that includes being sure she has full custody of their three kids, Mason,7, Penelope,5, and Reign, 7 months.
Their relationship ups and downs have been documented on Keeping Up With the Kardashians. Early on in the show, viewers watched as Scott upset Kourt’s family, especially Momager, Kris Jenner. In one episode, he was wasted in Vegas and shoved money into a waiter’s mouth, humiliating the Kardashian clan. He also smashed a mirror in their suite causing Khloe to begin doing a google search on the definition of a sociopath.
As the seasons progressed, so too did Scott, or at least it seemed. He was open about his demons and appeared to struggle with wanting to be a good father to his kids while also admitting to being uncomfortable. In one of the last episodes of Keeping Up With the Kardashians, the family was away on a ski vacation where Kourtney and Scott seemed the happiest they’d ever been. Kourtney remarked that Scott seemed very comfortable and that it was the first vacation in which he caused no drama and did not leave early.
Just when it appeared there was a happily ever after for the two, Scott began drinking again and was pictured over 4th of July weekend cozying up to an old girlfriend in Monaco. It was all the humiliation Kourtney could take and she went to see the “Disso Queen” Laura Wassar about custody. Wassar famously represented Kim, in the divorce that seemed to last forever, from Kris Humprhies. She is also the attorney representing Khloe in her divorce from Lamar Odom, another divorce that looked like it was going to last longer than the marriage.
Will Scott Disick fight for his kids? Not likely. He had reportedly been away for over a month and chose to continue partying after the pictures of him with his ex hit the tabloids. Some reports claim he knew he went to far and was afraid to go home. Others claim he was in a downward spiral and too far gone to go home.
While his friends don’t seem to believe that he’ll fight Kourtney for custody due to his partying, he recently posted a picture on Instagram with the caption, “When u realize the grass isn’t always greener,” making many wonder if he’s missing Kourt and the kids:
The self-proclaimed Lord Disick appeared to be close with his kids, when he was around, but only time will tell if he will straighten up enough to be a father again. Kourtney has reportedly been making the kids accessible via FaceTime but wants to protect the kids from his substance abuse and believes seeking sole custody is the way to do it.
