We've heard about it for years regarding Kourtney Kardashian and Scott Disick: the end is near, the break-up is imminent, he's a total and complete douchebag.
But a new tabloid cover story implies an impending split between the reality star and her baby daddy for a brand new reason: Disick's shady, law-breaking father.
It's come to the attention of Kourtney and her family that Jeffrey Disick - Scott's 62-year old father - recently turned himself in to the Suffolk County (N.Y.) District Attorney’s Office in the wake of grande larceny allegations. He stood accused of stealing money from a Long Island bank.
Jeffrey eventually pleaded guilty to a misdemeanor charge of petty larceny, paid $6,500 in restitution and was sentenced to 140 hours of community service.It's not a coincidence, Star reports, that Scott's parents have been so rarely seen since the debut of Keeping Up with the Kardashians in 2007.
"They’re completely removed from the Beverly Hills scene and look like fish out of water when they’re with Kris and her glamorous girls," a Kardashian source tells the magazine.
Are the shady financial transgressions of Scott's parents - they have been the subject of liens and judgments filed by companies, individuals and state and federal tax agencies totaling approximately $391,000 - enough to prompt a break-up? Not on their own.
But Disick and Kardashian have been fighting for a long time.
“Scott doesn’t even really have a career outside reality TV, and there have been so many stories about Scott’s out-of-control partying and wandering eye,” the insider says. "When this secret about his father’s criminal past gets out, Kourtney will feel like Scott’s betrayals are never-ending - to her and her entire family."
Do you think Kourtney should dump Scott?
