Scott Disick is living in a ''killer bachelor pad'' in New York.

Since being kicked out of the California house he shared with Kourtney Kardashian after nine years together, the 32-year-old reality TV star has been living near his late parents' old home, which the 'Keeping Up With the Kardashians' star always wanted him to sell.

A source said: ''This house has always been a bone of contention in their relationship. After his parents both died she kept telling him to sell it but he never did.

''It has been one of the most frustrating things for Kourtney as she doesn't understand why Scott can't let go and move on.''

Scott has told friends he is now only keeping the house to ''spite'' his ex-partner, with who he has three children, Mason, five, Penelope, three and seven-month-old Reign.

Speaking to the Daily Mirror newspaper, the source added: ''Scott has told everyone that he is going to keep the house now to spite Kourtney and just wants some peace and quiet from the spotlight.''

Kourtney isn't taking their break-up lying down either, as she wants to block Scott from trading on her name.

The 36-year-old beauty star is reportedly determined not to allow her former boyfriend - who she split from last week - to make money from his connections to her famous family and even wants him to sign a legal document agreeing not to endorse anything using the Kardashian name.
