Scott Disick is reportedly ’embarassed’ about Younes Bendjima’s decision to leak private messages in which the reality star was allegedly trashing his ex Kourtney Kardashian and her boyfriend Travis Barker.
The drama kicked off after the Keeping Up With The Kardashians star appeared to reach out to his baby mama’s ex-partner earlier this week in order to criticize the Poosh founder’s recent public displays of affection while on vacation in Italy with the Blink-182 rocker, 45.
What Scott, 38, hadn’t anticipated was for Younes to share screenshots of the exchange on Instagram.
Insiders claim the Flip It Like Disick star was caught off guard by Younes’ scathing response and claimed the father-of-three had instantly regretted sending the message during a ‘heated’ moment.
A source told US Weekly: ‘Scott was definitely embarrassed by Younes sharing his DM. He didn’t realize when he messaged him that that would happen.
‘He DMed him when he was in a heated moment and was just looking for him to react the same way being that they both dated Kourtney.’
The insider continued: ‘What’s really got him riled up is the effect Travis [Barker] and Kourtney’s relationship is having on his relationship with Kourtney. It’s more strained than ever.’
In fact, the source claimed Scott was mostly worried about the impact it would have on his co-parenting relationship with his former flame, 42.
‘He’s trying to be the best parent he can be for their kids and make it work coparenting, but he’s having problems now with Kourtney,’ the source added. ‘He doesn’t think she should be showing off too much PDA because of their rated-R behavior. The kids are still young and can easily find paparazzi photos of them on their phones.’
The former couple, who dated from 2006 to 2015, share Mason, 11, Penelope, 8, and six-year-old, Reign.
The insider continued: ‘He’s worried that she’s going to try to put a wedge between him and the kids. Younes outing him on social just made everything worse.’
Meanwhile, it has been claimed Kourtney wasn’t exactly ‘shocked’ by Scott’s comments.
A source told People: ‘She was surprised, but not shocked. Scott has always had a difficult time accepting that Kourtney is happy with someone else. He is especially threatened by her relationship with Travis.’
The insider added: ‘Yet, he and Kourtney have been getting along. Kourtney is disappointed that he engages in drama when they have been doing well co-parenting.
‘She doesn’t get why he felt the need to reach out to Younes. She will confront him about it. ‘
Let’s just hope some of this is being captured on camera for the family’s new Hulu series.
