As hard as it's been for fans to cope with Kourtney Kardashian and Scott Disick's breakup, it's definitely been more difficult for the couple themselves. And on Sunday night's Keeping Up With The Kardashians, Scott had a hard time coping with Kourtney's new boyfriend. Of course, Kardashian has been dating Younes Bendjima for awhile now, but in KUWTK time, their relationship is still pretty new... and Scott doesn't like the idea of his ex dating at all.
Kicking off with an awkward trip to Williams Sonoma with Kris, Scott made it pretty clear from the beginning of the episode that he was feeling really weird being around her — which, in itself, is also weird, considering how deeply entwined with this family he has always been, regardless of his status with Kourtney. Obviously, Kris' next move was to tell Kourtney about it, and at first, she didn't want to be part of it, but eventually she got dragged right back in.
At first, it was a phone call from Scott, when he found out that Kourtney actually considers Younes her boyfriend (by the way, she's still not calling him by name on the show. Come on, Kourtney). And then, it got much worse.
According to Kourtney, Scott called her at three a.m. one night, freaking her out so badly that she ended up at his house, trying to calm him down to the point that she ended the night in tears, saying that he was being "aggressive." And if you've been watching this show for awhile, you definitely know that it isn't easy to make Kourtney cry.
When Kim asked her about it, Kourtney summed up her feelings on the topic pretty well, and it seems her top priority is making sure Scott is in the best condition possible to care for their children. She said:
"I made it clear to Scott that he dictates his own path. If he's in a good place he can come around and be a part of things. I just don't care as much to be, like, monitoring his every move, as long as I can tell that he's, like, OK. I just feel like I want him to be happy and healthy and I'll always be there for him as much as I can be."
"I just think Scott has to figure this all out on his own," she added. "What life does he want to live? It's not up to me, it's up to him. I think I've done all I can do."
Like Kourtney said, it's hard for her to find the appropriate boundaries to set with Scott because of their history together and the fact that they share three children. She has done a lot to help him — at least, from what we've seen on the show — and if Scott wants to make changes in his life, he's the only one who can do it.
It wasn't all negative for them, though. They were able to end the episode with a sweet moment together with Mason, who was pumped to spend the night with his dad (saying he likes the scenery, the quiet, and he likes "to be with my father. This kid). Scott and Kourtney parted with a pretty cute handshake, so hopefully they'll be OK after all.
What's most important is that Scott is healthy and that he and Kourtney are able to give their kids happy lives. So far, it seems like they're killing the coparenting game, so let's hope that continues. Sometimes, it's still odd to think that Kourtney and Scott won't be a couple again, but their new, different relationship has the potential to be even stronger.
