There once was a man on vacation in Nantucket.
His name was Scott Disick and his presence there caused quite the stir within the celebrity gossip community.
According to TMZ insiders, Kourtney Kardashian found a ridiculous house in Airbnb for most of July, settling down on the island of Nantucket.
With her three kids and some friends in tow, natch.
The man has seven bedroom and eight bathrooms and is reportedly so gorgeous and luxurious that Disick simply could not stay away.
He asked Kourtney if he could tag along on the trip and stay in the same rental ... and she said yes!
Granted, it's a beautiful home:
And, yes, Disick is the father of Kourtney's three kids.
It's very nice that he can spend a lot of time with them.
But what sort of message is the 37-year-old Kardashian sending to her children about their father in this kind of instance?
Is she teasing them (and us!) with a possible reconciliation?
We don't have the answer to that question at the moment.
But we do know that the residence typically rents for $6,600 per night. However, Airbnb gave Kourtney a deal on it.
For some reason.
There's been talk ever since Kourtney dumped Scott last summer that the two would get back together.
And we can understand why from Disick's point of view.
Just check out the Kourtney Kardashian bikini photo above.
Just a few weeks ago, however, Kourtney tried to put this incessant chatter to bed.
A source, supposedly speaking on Kardashian's behalf, said matter of factly that she is never getting back together with Disick.
Never, ever, ever, EVER.
We'd say that Kourtney could ask Taylor Swift to sing a certain song that expresses this sentiment in order for the world to come to grips with it.
But Swift isn't exactly getting along well with the Kardashians right now.
Still, it's hard to imagine Disick hasn't gotten the message.
He's sort of cleaned up his act, he's still hanging around a lot with his ex and she still has not accepted him back into her bed, as far as we know.
If these two parents were to rekindle their romance, well ...
It likely would've happened already, don't you think?
