Earlier this year, we were devastated by Brad and Angelina's breakup. We thought that love was dead and that all hope was lost for celebrity relationships. But Thursday night, the world received some great news- Kourtney Kardashian and Scott Disick are back together!! After a year and a half apart, the two have decided to give love another shot.
Love is not dead folks -- if Kourt and Lord Disick can work through all of their issues, then there's hope for the rest of us. They're not a perfect couple by any means, but perhaps that's why we love them so much. They've shown the world the value of forgiveness and patience. To celebrate their rekindling, let's take a look back at how it all started.
Kourtney and Scott first met at a friend's house in Mexico, but it
“I just thought he was so annoying. He was four years younger, he lived in New York, he didn’t have a job."
Evidently, something changed for Kourtney after her initial first impression, because when "Keeping Up With the Kardashians" (KUWTK) first aired in October of 2007, Scott and Kourtney's relationship was a major subplot. Kris was skeptical about Scott's "playboy attitude," but Kourtney defended him.
In early March, Kourtney confronts Scott about his alleged cheating on the first episode of season two of KUTWK. She discovered flirtatious texts on his phone to another woman.
"I loved looking into your eyes last night," he wrote. "I wish I could come to L.A. for a week and not tell Kourt."
After an argument, Scott explains himself to Kourtney and her sisters, who are still skeptical.
2009 was a
She later told People that the pregnancy was unplanned and that she had found out while they were separated. The two of them gave an interview to US Weekly and Scott expressed confidence that Kourtney would be a good mother.
But in November, they got into another fight after Scott got belligerently drunk in Las Vegas at Kim's 29th birthday party. In December, Mason was born, which seemed to bring Scott and Kourtney back together.
As the new year began, Scott, Kourtney, and Mason were the perfect picture of a happy family. At least for a while.
In June of the same year, Kourtney broke things off yet again after Scott's violent behavior made a reappearance. He didn't want to split, but Kourtney said that she no longer wanted him around Mason if Scott wasn't going to be a good role model for his son.
Later in 2011, while celebrating their four and a half year anniversary, Scott proposed to Kourtney over dinner. She turned him down, claiming that she wasn’t ready for marriage yet and that’s she was “happy with the way things are.”
Late in the year, they announced that they were pregnant with their second child, Penelope.
In July, Scott and Kourtney celebrate the birth of their daughter Penelope. Scott also famously went to Britain to be knighted as Lord Disick.
Kourtney and Scott sit down with Ryan Seacrest to discuss their relationship. They acknowledge their rocky history and say that they have no immediate plans to get married.
At the end of the summer, things took a turn for the dramatic when male model Michael Girgenti claimed to be Mason's true father. He said that he had gotten together with Kourtney 9 months before Mason was born in the time that she and Scott were separated. Scott took a paternity test to prove that he was Penelope and Mason's father. A few months later, Scott's mother died.
At the beginning of 2014, Scott's father also passed away. He later revealed that the death of his parents caused him to struggle with depression.
Around the middle of the summer, Kourtney and Scott announced their third pregnancy. Scott seems less than thrilled, claiming that he can't handle all of the extra responsibility. Reign Disick is born at the end of the year.
Kourtney and Scott appear to be happy for a time, but pictures soon surface of Scott partying with a celebrity stylist on a yacht. Kourtney dumped Scott for what we thought was the final time....
.. until Thursday, December 1, 2016, when E! Online announced that the couple was back together! Apparently, they've been together for a few months, but have not moved back in together. A source told E! that they're "giving their relationship a try again. Scott's mellowed out a lot and hasn't been partying."
They reportedly want to give being a family a real shot. Scott has attended several events with the rest of the Kardashian clan and seems to be working hard to gain favor with the family.
Is this time for real? Does true love still exist?! Only time will tell. Best of luck to Scott and Kourtney.
