During Monday's most recent episode of Keeping Up With the Kardashians,Scott Disick mentioned his ailing father multiple times. While we don't know too much about Lord Disick the senior, it appears that he and his son may have some things in common... including a bit of a checkered past.
According to a May 2012 report from Star Magazine, Scott’s father, Jeffrey Disick, turned himself in to the police for allegedly stealing money from a bank in Suffolk County, New York. Jeffrey reportedly pled guilty to charges of petty larceny after he was accused of stealing upwards of $3,000 from the Long Island bank.
Jeffrey and his wife, Bonnie Disick, are rarely featured on Keeping Up With the Kardashians and its many spin-offs, and sources say the recent news will only add tension to the already awkward relationship between the two families.
“They’re [Jeffrey and Bonnie] completely removed from the Beverly Hills scene and look like fish out of water when they’re with Kris and her glamorous girls,” an insider close to the family told Star.
To make up for the alleged crime, Scott’s dad is said to have paid $6,500 in restitution and was sentenced to 140 hours of community service, which he chose to complete rather than spend 30 days in jail.
So how will the Kardashian family react to the report? Kourtney Kardashian’s baby daddy has definitely disappointed some with his wild partying in the past, and this new revelation could add fuel to the fire.
“With everything else that has put Kris at odds with Scott’s parents, I wouldn’t be surprised if she also felt they’d be happy to exploit their son’s relationship with the Kardashians for any payoff it could bring,” the source said.
Since the two families will share a second grandchild in a matter of weeks, putting aside their differences soon would be for the best!
