The Keeping Up With the Kardashians star is allegedly on a downward spiral after his beloved mother Bonnie tragically died of cirrhosis of the liver at the end of October, as RadarOnline.com exclusively reported.
“Scott is devastated,” a source told Life & Style about the death of his 63-year-old mother.
“Kourtney sees him heading down a bad path again; she’s trying to help him through this.”
Rather than be tough on him, Kourtney is “giving him the sympathy he needs.”
“Without Kourtney, he’s a mess,” said the source.
After all, she has seen Scott’s behavior turn dangerous when he drinks. During an episode of KUWTK, he once punched a mirror in a drunken rage as she fled with Mason in her arms.
“Lately she’ll say to him, ‘You have two kids – what are you doing to make them proud?’ And the answer is not much,” the source revealed.
Scott and Kourtney put on a united front and attended a small funeral for his mother in Long Island.
“It was a small affair. There was just a handful of people. No other Kardashians beyond Kourtney attended. But the entire family is saddened with the news of Bonnie’s passing. They loved her so much,” the source told Radar.
Scott has not addressed his mom’s death, either publicly or via his social media forums.
