Pictures of Scott Disick getting close with another woman had emerged over the Fourth of July weekend, and it appears that was the final straw for Kourtney.
They’ve been off and on a few times over the years, but after nearly a decade together, reports are emerging that Kourtney Kardashian and her boyfriend Scott Disick have split up for good after a number of rocky months in their relationship.
The decision seems to have been unilaterally taken by Kourtney, presumably prompted in part by a series of photographs that emerged over the Fourth of July weekend of Disick in Monte Carlo getting close with Los Angeles-based stylist Chloe Bartoli.
E! News confirmed that multiples sources had informed them of the split on Monday (July 6th). “Kourtney has always taken Scott back and been by his side, but now with three kids it has gotten old,” a source disclosed. “Kourtney has to do what's best for the kids.”

“Scott has been running around saying he's single,” said another insider. “Kourtney dumped him after she saw the pics [in Monte Carlo] and he hasn't been home after a month-long party binge.”
The couple, who had been an item since 2006, have three children together – Mason (5), Penelope (2) and Reign (6 months). Official representatives for Kourtney, 36, have not reacted to the reports at the time of writing.
The report continues with another source implying that Scott, 32, had been going off the rails over recent months and not being around enough at home. He had been spending time with friends who “are not a good influence” on him and “not looking out for his best interests.”
Kourtney had remained supportive of him over all this time, including when he checked into a rehab facility in Costa Rica in March 2015 over reports of an alcohol problem. “He's doing well, and you know, focusing on himself and working on himself,” she had said at the time. “He's made a lot of progress, so I'm proud of him.”
However, the Monte Carlo pics appear to be the straw that broke the camel’s back, with Kourtney spending a low-key Fourth of July at a family get-together looking after their three children while Scott was abroad.
