Is it just me, or do things just keep happening? You think something’s over; you move on. But then! There’s more. There’s always more, and that’s just what life is now.
I’m of course talking about yesterday’s theatrics involving none other than Kourtney Kardashian, Travis Barker, and two of Kourtney’s exes: Scott Disick and Younes Bendjima. By way of a brief recap: Scott Disick, who I think we can safely surmise is not over it, decided to reach out to Younes Bendjima of all people. “Yo, is this chick [and mother of my children] ok!????” he allegedly wrote in a DM on Instagram. “Brooooo like what is this? In the middle of Italy”, attaching a photo of Kourtney and Travis making out (in the middle of Italy!) for context. But Scott’s intentions didn’t pan out when Younes allegedly shot back: “Doesn’t matter to me as long as she’s happy”, finishing: “PS I’m not your bro.”
The whole thing backfired spectacularly when Younes went and posted their alleged exchange to Instagram. And look, the celebrity gossip places? They noticed. It wasn’t long before Kravis fan account @kravis clocked the news and let the people know, including Kourtney’s boyfriend Travis Barker, who ended up ‘liking’ the post and later posting that Goodfellas laughing gif to his Instagram story as a final flourish. Whew! That’s a lot of social media, everyone.
Scott Disick’s girlfriend Amelia Hamlin has since joined the chat. The 20-year-old reportedly took to Instagram with a photo of a person holding a sign that reads, "Let’s be nicer to each other. We’re all trying our best." Fair enough.
Thanks to all that posting and re-posting, word has it that Kourtney has also weighed in on the situation. “She just wishes he would know better than to reach out to Younes of all people," a source apparently told E! Online, adding: "Younes can never be trusted and Scott knows that."
According to the source, Kourtney reckons Scott “had a moment of weakness and did something impulsive that he will now regret” and hopes he’ll “learn” from what happened. That’s nice. And look, I think there’s something that we can all learn from this story. Which is that even if things are bleak, even if you are struggling to process your emotions, do not – under any circumstances – send a DM to Younes Bendjima.
