Scott Disick has made his stance clear regarding the public displays of affection (PDA) between Kourtney Kardashian and her current husband, Travis Barker, especially in the presence of their children. Disick, who shares three children with Kardashian—Mason, aged 14, Penelope, aged 11, and Reign, aged 9—has expressed concerns over the couple’s PDA, particularly after an incident involving their daughter Penelope caught public attention and led to criticism from fans.

Kourtney Kardashian, known for her role in the reality TV world and as the founder of Poosh, tied the knot with Travis Barker, the renowned drummer of Blink-182. The couple’s affectionate behavior has been a frequent topic of discussion and, at times, controversy among their fan base. The spotlight intensified when Kourtney faced backlash for her PDA with Barker in front of Penelope, raising questions about appropriate boundaries in front of children.

“Scott takes being a dad seriously and wants what’s best for the kids,” a source told Life & Style magazine. “He’s put his foot down on more and more issues lately — including asking Kourtney to tone down the PDA with Travis in front of their children.” “They adore Kourtney’s husband, Travis, especially their son, Mason. Scott is scared of being replaced, and as you can see, it’s really taking a toll on him,” they said.

A close source to them told OK Magazine that the dynamic between Disick and Kardashian has become increasingly strained, with sources indicating a growing conflict over parenting styles and decisions. This “war” over child-rearing philosophies has added another layer of complexity to their co-parenting relationship, suggesting diverging views on what is deemed suitable in the upbringing of their shared children.

A separate source claimed last year that Scott was maintaining his distance from his ex amid her challenging pregnancy with Rocky, saying, “Scott tries to be as supportive of Kourtney as possible, but also knows that it’s best to keep his distance, especially during a stressful time,” the source revealed. “Scott and Kourtney are not as friendly as they used to be, so he tries to be respectful and give her space, while also being there for her and the family,” they added.

Amidst these tensions, another aspect of the family’s dynamics came to light last year during Kourtney’s pregnancy with her son, Rocky Thirteen, whom she shares with Barker. Sources close to the situation suggested that Disick opted to maintain a respectful distance from Kardashian during this period.

This decision was framed as a supportive gesture, recognizing the potential stressors associated with pregnancy and the importance of space in navigating such times. Disick’s approach during this sensitive period was seen as an effort to balance his role as a supportive ex-partner with the recognition that certain boundaries are beneficial for all parties involved.

These developments reflect the ongoing adjustments and challenges faced by blended families, particularly those in the public eye. The Disick-Kardashian-Barker situation underscores the complexities of co-parenting in the aftermath of separation and re-marriage, the negotiation of personal relationships in the context of public scrutiny, and the ongoing endeavor to prioritize the well-being of shared children amidst changing family dynamics.
