Kourtney Kardashian and Scott Disick should be over-the-moon following the announcement of Kourt’s third pregnancy. So why are they sleeping apart?

While Kourtney and sister Khloe are staying in a multimillion-dollar mansion in the Hamptons during filming for their Keeping Up With the Kardashians spin-off, Scott appears to be shacking up at a nearby hotel.

However, instead of family tensions coming between them, HollywoodLife reports it's all part of a ploy by Kris Jenner to boost viewership for Kourtney and Khloe’s new show.

“It is all about the storyline for the show, there is no fight. They just want to add to the drama for the show and they are running out of options,” a Kardashian insider reveals.

While the Kardashians’ habit of faking their footage is a not-so-closely guarded secret, it seems that they could be willing to go to even greater lengths to win viewers.

“The ‘fighting’ added with the baby coming around totally adds to the show and is a great side story. It’s all a part of the plan,” adds the source.

Kourtney and Scott’s relationship may not be on the rocks, but that doesn’t mean Lord Disick has cleaned up his act entirely. Despite Kourtney’s protests, Scott has continued to drink, hitting up nightclubs in New York while Kourtney films.

Do you think staging a fight between Kourtney and Scott will help boost ratings?
