"I think it's clear to everyone that Scott's doing this just to try to one-up Kourtney and that seems super malicious,"
While photos of the two together came out back in May, fans didn't hear from Kourtney or the rest of the Kardashian-Jenners at the time. Thankfully, last night's episode of their reality show showed what was going on behind the scenes.
When the family heard that both Kourtney and Scott would be attending the annual film festival separately, the drama began. Things escalated when Kourt found out he'd be flying out there with Thorne, while she'd attend with younger beau Younes Bendjima. "He doesn't care how he embarrasses you, walking around town with Bella and all these other people," Khloe told her sister, adding in a confessional that "it is crazy that Scott won't leave Kourt alone. It's super suspicious."
"When Scott found out that I'm going to Cannes, we got into a full war," Kourtney said later in the episode. "He's like, 'Oh well, I tried to give you a chance.' For what? To not go? He's like, 'You're gonna have a great time.' He's like threatening me now, he's like, 'Your little friend is gonna get beat up every single day while you're there.' He's like, 'Watch yourself, you better watch your back.' I'm like, 'Are you going to have people attack me?' He's like, 'You're the love of my life, why would I have anyone attack you? Just don't expect anywhere you go will be easy now.'"
"If you threaten me and my friends, it's over. That's not how I will be treated," she said she told him. "He's like, I'm sorry anyone who gets in the middle will not be pleased with the outcome.'"
Scott later explained his comments to his ex in a confessional with Khloe. "When Kourtney was telling me she was going, she was being a drop condescending. I think I got defensive and said, 'If you're gonna be in Cannes with another guy, have fun, but know that it's probably not going to be that fun if you run into me and my friends,'" he said. "The fact of the matter is, she's allowed to live her life, she's a single girl and obviously, we all know I do what I want. There's a lot of anger, it's really real, us not being together."
"I really was acting like a hot head. Long story short, I was acting immature and I said a few things that were inappropriate," he added. "I'm not gonna regret that, because that's how I felt at the time. We have a lot of history, so it's hard."
When photos of Disick and Thorne at the airport heading out to Cannes hit tabloids, Kim chimed in on it all in a phone call with Kendall, who was with Kourtney in France. "They looked so desperate at the airport. Like who goes to LAX together? It's not a good look for Scott, at all," she said.
"He talked to me about it," Kendall added. "He thinks it is. I was like, 'Are you nuts? Are you actually not well?' And he was like, 'I'm doing it to make Kourtney mad.' I said, 'You're not gonna make her mad for the right reasons.'"
Kourtney and Scott then got into what Khloe called an all out "picture war," as each of them were photographed with their significant others all over the South of France. "I think it's clear to everyone that Scott's doing this just to try to one-up Kourtney and that seems super malicious," Kim added. "Kourtney's genuinely trying to go away and have a good time and he's trying to like freak her out and make Kourtney think there's going to be some crazy drama run-in. It's just so ridiculous. This is not gonna end well."
"Scott is like trying to one up Kourt with a new picture. It's all a jealousy thing," said Khloe. "So if a picture of you comes out with your friend, the other one tries to one up you. To me, I feel like I'm watching a ping pong match."
"It's weird because I'm not in the tournament," Kourtney joked.
