I wasn't sure it would ever happen, but Scott Disick loves something more than money: his family. The reality show star has had his ups and downs, but underneath his Lord Disick facade, is a really good guy. He loves Kourtney Kardashian, he loves his children, and I think he even loves the rest of the crazy Kardashian/Jenner clan (although he probably won't admit it on camera). His most recent interview with People magazine shows that Disick is really growing up in a good way, and I couldn't be more proud.
I've loved Disick since I first started watching Keeping Up With the Kardashians, so it's been really sad to watch him struggle over the years. He's had his run-ins with addiction, depression, and more. But he's come out on top, and he seems like he's in a really good place now. It's a reminder that while he has fun joking around about everyone being peasants and how he wants to buy a helicopter, at the end of the day he's a family man now.
"I think [family is more important]," he told People magazine on Saturday. "I like making money, but I like being at home, too. I've realized that money is not everything I used think it was. Being at home is more important."
A big part of why Disick started to change was because he had children. Mason, Penelope, and now baby Reign are always on his mind. For Disick, there's nothing more important than being a good dad, and being dedicated to his girlfriend Kourtney.
We've been fortunate enough to have three amazing kids. They don't really make our lives any harder, they make it easier, because you kind of realize what life's about. We’re pretty fortunate for that and I thank God for that.
There will of course always be those who doubt Disick's changing ways. Tabloids want to continue to label him a money-obsessed cheater with a drinking problem, but Disick isn't listening to the rumors. "I try not to look into what people are saying about me anymore. A decent amount of the time it's probably not true, so I don't want to drive myself too crazy," he said. (My favorite is the new Star cover declaring that Kendall Jenner is carrying his baby.)
He understands why people are drawn to tabloid fodder, so he's not dissing it. He's just choosing to rise above. "People always have something to say about me," he said. "Listen, if it causes somebody some kind of happiness in their lives, so be it. I watch TV and movies for entertainment. Some people wanna read things, so more power to them."
But while people have been reading about his invented exploits and made-up stories, Disick has been getting his life together and being there for his family.
I love me some Lord Disick, but I love hearing that he's changed for the better even more.
