Only a few days ago Scott Disick, 32, and Kourtney Kardashian, 36, split, but this inevitable break-up has been years in the making. The couple, who have been together since 2006, became a household name after they starred in the reality television series Keeping Up With The Kardashians. Since then, they have had numerous trial splits, fights and bitter exchanges but at least they got three beautiful children out of it.
Mason, 5, Penelope, 3, and newborn Reign are currently living in LA with their mother whilst Scott continues to relax in Monte Carlo. Scott has always gotten in trouble for something, whether it was his outrageous flirting or his excessive partying away from home. This certainly has been one relationship that has never been without drama.
Here we take a look at their turbulent times from start to finish; it really doesn't take a relationship expert to work out why this romance was doomed from day one.
10 Kourtney Discovers Text Messages To Other Women On Scott's Phone
Season 2 of KUWTK witnessed Kourtney confront Scott with allegations about his cheating ways. Alongside her sisters, Kim and Khloe, she hacked into his phone and found a string of messages to another number which read, "I loved looking into your eyes last night," and "I wish I could come to L.A. for a week and not tell Kourt".
The early warning signs were there that Scott might struggle with being one half of a monogamous relationship. As much as the two-headed beast that is Kim and Khloe tried to encourage Kourtney to call it quits early on, their pleas were ignored and the pair stayed together throughout more drama that laid ahead.
9 They Find Out They Are Pregnant During A Break From Each Other
In 2009, Scott and Kourtney took a break from each other and her family had high hopes that they would finally go their separate ways. During the break, the pair had a brief fling together which resulted in the unplanned pregnancy of their first child. So it was time for Kourtney to reveal to her family that the break would have to be postponed.
Kourtney then told People magazine in an exclusive interview that deciding whether or not to keep the baby was a very tough decision. She said, "I do think every woman should have the right to do what they want, but I don't think it's talked through enough. I can't even tell you how many people just say, 'Oh, get an abortion.' Like it's not a big deal".
8 Kris Begs Kourtney To Leave Scott When She's Pregnant
Ever since Keeping Up With The Kardashians first aired, it has been clear that Kris Jenner thinks Scott is too much of a "playboy". Well, he hasn't disappointed in playing up to the partying role and his differences with the matriarch of the family have never ceased in drama.
Kris has been very vocal with her feelings towards Scott and she has on more than one occasion asked her daughter to give the party animal the boot. In one episode she told Kourtney, "I want you to be happy. I know that if I was pregnant and I was waiting for my boyfriend to come in and he was out to all hours of the night, I would tell him to hit the road Jack".

In 2010, Scott let his true colours show and gave fans of the show an insight into why the family really didn't like him. In the episode "Blame It On The Alcohol", they all travelled together to Las Vegas to celebrate Kim's 29th birthday and although she wasn't too fussed about partying, Scott was willing to drink enough for the both of them. It was the first time on KUWTK that he appeared violent and drunk in front of the cameras.
Scott got into an aggressive fight with Rob Kardashian. He also went to a hotel room to sober up but then came back to throw around some more verbal abuse, he got into a fight with a waiter and proceeded to stuff a $100 bill in the poor guy's mouth. Enough was enough for a pregnant Kourtney and she called it quits after labelling his behaviour "unforgivable". The pair later reconciled.

In the final episode of Kourtney and Kim Take New York, viewers were left open-mouthed when Scott proposed at a dinner to celebrate their four-and-a-half year anniversary and Kourtney said no. Scott told the cameras earlier that he was ready to make a life-long commitment to the mother of his son, Mason.
Her sister, Kim, helped Scott to pick out the right diamond ring for when he went down on one knee. At the meal Scott announced, "For me, a perfect relationship and a perfect life is having a family and being married". The reply he got back from Kourtney was, "Things are so good now, why would we want to change that?" Instead of planning weddings they just enjoy a celebratory toast together and Scott didn't bother asking again.
5 Scott Takes A Paternity Test To Find Out If Mason Is His
In 2013, just when things couldn't get any worse for the pair, model Michael Girgenti claimed he had a fling with Kourtney nine months before Mason was born (Scott and Kourtney were on a break) and that he might be his. As if this family didn't need any more drama on their plate, they had to go through the agony of a DNA test to prove Scott was the biological father.
Girgenti filed a lawsuit against the couple and demanded joint custody. When the DNA tests were returned, they proved that Scott was 99.9% likely to be Mason's father. Kourtney spoke to the press about her ordeal, claiming, "After three-and-a-half years of rumors and lies being spread by an individual I met briefly at a photo shoot, I am setting the record straight that Scott is Mason’s father".
4 Kourtney Throws Scott Out Their Hamptons Home On Father's Day
In 2014, things looked as if they were starting to settle down now that baby Penelope had been born and the family became a foursome. That was until Scott lost control again, began partying too much and Kourtney was forced to kick him out of their $14 million Hamptons rental home. She was rumoured to have finally flipped after finding inappropriate photographs of him flirting with other women.
Scott had several nights out in New York and failed to return home most evenings, instead preferring to check into hotels overnight. The couple, who are masters of deceit when it comes to posing for Instagram pictures, posted just days before the fight a photo with the caption "Thanks for being a loving daddy more than anything else". Behind the scenes, though, things were not going well.
3 Scott Is Hospitalized After Drinking Too Much
Scott was hospitalized with alcohol poisoning just a month after Kourtney had kicked him out of their home. In June 2014, he had been partying at 1 Oak Nightclub in Southampton, New York, when he became violently ill and claimed that he might have been the victim of a spiked drink.
Photographs taken of the night show Scott downing beers and spirits then spraying Veuve Clicquot over other people in his group. He became unresponsive later on in the evening and was taken to hospital by concerned friends. TMZ managed to get the inside scoop from the doctors who treated Scott and they ruled out any possibility of spiking and put it down instead to alcohol poisoning.
2 Scott Angrily Rejects His Unborn Child
Kourtney announced that she was pregnant with the couple's third child not long after the couple moved back in together. She delivered the news in the most relaxed way by saying, "Can you shut the door for a second? I just wanted to tell you that I am pregnant". Scott's reaction? He shouted, "You just keep suckering me into these kids. I can't handle all of this responsibility".
The episode was the season nine premiere of KUWTK, and most of the show was focused on Kourtney and how she was emotionally distant. Scott's mother had died earlier that year but Kim and Khloe believed that she wasn't there for him enough throughout such a difficult time. In April of this year, Kourtney gave birth to her second son Reign and Scott did appear delighted after all.

It was only last week that Kourtney and Scott began to release statements about their break up but already it appears as if one of them has clearly moved on. Whilst Kourtney is staying at home with the children, it appears Scott is more content on getting cozy with stylist Chloe Bartoli in Monte Carlo.
