It was just a matter of time until somebody ran with this angle:
Is Scott Disick and Kourtney Kardashian’s breakup and scandal completely fake, and an elaborate storyline for Keeping Up with the Kardashians?!
Even for them, we think that's probably a bit of a stretch.
Still, when you read a report like this, you have to wonder, given who you're dealing with here and the abrupt, brazen nature of recent events.
The Kardashian family seems totally committed to the breakup story, but few have spoken about it publicly. Perhaps because it's all a sham?
Could they have effectively told Scott to go nuts for a few weeks, do whatever you want, then return for some reconciliation and redemption?
Again, probably a stretch ... but not implausible.
According to inside sources close to the show, "Everyone thought that Kourtney’s storyline had become dull so this will spice it up.”
“The split is staged. He has been filming this whole time and this is going to be a major storyline on the next season of the show."
Kylie Jenner and Tyga would seem to be plenty spicy to us, but perhaps the whole grown-ass-man-dating-teen thing is still taboo.
A faux scandal with Scott and Kourtney would make for terrific tabloid fodder and E! ratings. However, that's true even if it's not faux.
Yet, Given Kris Jenner's shady history of stooping lower and lower and Caitlyn Jenner stealing the family's spotlight, you never know.
There's only thing we can say for certain here:
If it's not staged, friends praying Disick won't die might want to double their efforts, because he is clearly out of control and needs help ASAP.
