For weeks leading up to the July 8 birth of Kourtney Kardashian and Scott Disicks second child, baby girl Penelope, rumors were rampant that Kourtney was fed up with Scott’s partying ways. Since the birth, the buzz has only increased — with numerous reports claiming Scott has been flirting up a storm with other women in cities like Miami and New York while a despondent Kourtney, left on her own, is close to calling their relationship off.

But are things really that bad? Sure, Scott may still have his share of growing up to do, but is Kourtney actually on the verge of severing ties with the father of her two kids?

We turned to a Kardashian family insider, who set the record straight.

“So many of these reports are exaggerated,” the insider explained. “Scott and Kourtney are like any couple with two young kids… they face challenges. Having a newborn and a 2-year-old running around the house is exhausting.”

“Has it strained their relationship? Sure. Especially during her last pregnancy. But Scott loves Kourtney to death and I know he’s dedicated to making this last.”

The insider also stresses that all of Scott’s recent out-of-town travels have been about work, not pleasure.

“He was in Miami for a paid appearance,” the insider notes. “And he’s now in New York solely to work on his restaurant RYU. He will be returning home as soon as he can.”
