‘KUWTK’: Some Fans Are Frustrated That Kourtney and Scott Are Still a Popular Ship

Keeping up With the Kardashians has been on the air now since October 2007. Throughout these years, the Kardashian sisters have had their fair share of relationships.

While fans have witnessed a lot of the Kardashian’s partners come and go, one man has remained a staple on the show. This man is none other than the Lord, Scott Disick

KUWTK fans have seen Scott Disick transform from an arrogant, irresponsible, twenty-something into a slightly less arrogant, doting father of three. While Scott and his longtime girlfriend, Kourtney Kardashian, ended their romantic relationship in 2015, Disick remains heavily involved with the Kardashian family and KUWTK.

While some fans are still rooting for Scott and Kourtney to get back together, other fans are over it. Read on to learn more about Scott and Kourtney’s relationship and why some fans are frustrated that the pair remain a popular ship.

Scott Disick and Kourtney Kardashian’s love story actually began before the days of KUWTK. The couple started dating back in 2006, after meeting at a mutual friend’s house party in Mexico. Since Scott and Kourtney were already together at the start of KUWTK, it’s of little surprise that O.G. KUWTK fans are still shipping the duo. 

While Scott was a wild party boy during the early seasons of  KUWTK, fans got to see him grow up quickly after Kourtney gave birth to their first child. In 2009, just three years after the pair began their relationship, they welcomed their first child, Mason, into the world.

The birth of Mason not only shifted the dynamics between Kourtney and Scott, but the entire Kardashian family as Mason was the first grandchild to be born. Since Mason’s arrival, the grandchild crew has increased significantly.

Mason is now the oldest of 10 Kardashian-Jenner grandkids, including Scott and Kourtney’s two younger children, Penelope and Reign.

Scott and Kourtney had some iconic moments on  KUWTK as a couple. Despite some troubling moments, they remained a couple to root for among fans. However, after the birth of their youngest son in December 2014, the pair started to drift apart. Scott started drinking and partying heavily again. Kourtney didn’t want that for her life, and the pair went their separate ways in July 2015. 

While Scott and Kourtney called it quits romantically, the two maintained a great co-parenting relationship for their children. The co-parenting relationship they have been able to create serves as a good inspiration for many parents out there.

Scott didn’t just maintain ties with Kourtney for the kids’ sake, either. Scott has become an integral part of the Kardashian-Jenner family in his own right. Kris Jenner continues to treat Scott as a son, and the Kardashian-Jenner siblings treat him as a brother. 

Will Scott and Kourtney love again?

Since their split, both Scott and Kourtney have had other long term, romantic partners. Kourtney most notably dated Younes Bendjima, an Algerian model, between 2016 and 2018.

Scott’s most notable relationship after his split from Kourtney was with Sofia Richie. Scott and Sofia began dating in 2017 but called it quits early this year. Now, with both Scott and Kourtney single again, it has some fans playing matchmaker. 

Scott and Kourtney have certainly had their ups and downs over the years. Fans have been privy to it all, but many fans are still holding out hope that the couple will rekindle their relationship over five years later. 

KUWTK fans took to Reddit to discuss the potential of a Scott and Kourtney reunions. While some were thrilled with the idea, others weren’t so keen. One fed-up fan wrote, “Yeah I don’t know how many times Kourt has to say ‘we are co-parents so when he comes on vacations and goes to events with us, it’s because he’s the father of my children and nothing more’ before people will get it.”

However, only time will truly tell if Scott and Kourtney are serious about remaining strictly co-parents, or if they might decide to rekindle their romance now that they’re both in new places in their life.
