Kourtney Kardashian & Scott Disick Might Get Back Together but It's Not Because of the Kids

kourtney kardashian, scott disickBrace yourself for the latest development in what's turning out to be the least straightforward breakup in history: Kourtney Kardashian and Scott Disick might be getting back together -- but it's not for the kids, it's for the money! Wait, what?? Don't these two have enough money already?


According to Hollywood Life, the on-again, off-again parents of Mason, Penelope, and Reign are considering a reunion -- something plenty of fans have been hoping for (and plenty of other fans, not to mention Kardashian sisters, have been dreading). Except it's not for any of the "right" reasons (namely, LOVE); it's because they know they'll make a lot more money together than they will apart. 

“Scott is one of the key players on Keeping Up With the Kardashians. He helps bring in the ratings, which means more money for him, the network, and the Kardashians," said a source. "But either way, he already signed a deal with E! before the cheating scandal, so they have to contractually pay him anyway."

Not only that, but Kourt and Scott's contracts have something called "escalators" in them, which means the higher the ratings go, the more money the stars get. And while Scott's antics have been horrible for their relationship, there's no denying they've been great for ratings. For example, the highest-rated episode of Season 9 was the one where Scott actually had the audacity to be mad at Kourtney for getting pregnant with Reign; back in 2010, one of Scott's drunken freak-out episodes was viewed by almost 2.5 million fans. (Hmm, no wonder the guy's so unbelievably smug.)

Ugh. It's enough to make even the most optimistic Kardashian devotee wonder if money is the only reason Kourtney and Scott have been together this long. It's true that the show would be a million times more dull without Disick -- love him, hate him, or love to hate him, when The Lord is onscreen, it's tough to look away. But I still believe that these two had a real connection at some point, and that it might still be enough to bring them back together -- especially because of the kids. We all know how much Kourtney's children mean to her, and how high of a priority family is for all the Kardashians.

I guess we'll just have to wait and see how this one pans out, but one thing's for sure -- whether Kourtney and Scott get back together or not, they'll both have plenty of money for a long, long time to come.
