Scott Disick Reportedly Wants to Leave Kourtney Kardashian

Scott Disick reportedly wants out of Kardashian-land. Rumor has it that he wants to move across the country and away from girlfriend Kourtney Kardashian, son Mason Disick and his and Kourtney's unborn child.

While Scott and Kourtney's tumultuous relationship may seem to be the reason for the split, I have another theory: Scott wants out of Kardashian-land now that the family is the subject of public ridicule and their popularity is sinking.

Between Kim's 72-day marriage to Kris Humphries, the accusations that the failing Kardashian Kollection from Sears is comprised of copy-cat fashion, the allegations that the Kardashians' companies use sweatshop labor and the ridiculous nail polish names in their new collection (Kim-pletely in Love, Listen to your Momager!), Scott probably wants out...and who can blame him?

I don't think there's any denying that Scott enjoyed the fame he got by being associated with the Kardashians. And he probably stayed with Kourtney as long as he did because of it. After all, he rakes in cash from the Kardashian TV shows, and I'm sure he makes loads of cash from other venues that wouldn't be available if not for the fame-whoring family. That being said, the Kardashian fame-meter is heading south, and Scott probably realizes that it's time to jump ship.

I think Scott can probably continue his television / media based work if he breaks away from the Kardashians now. He can probably host a daytime TV show or something. Eventually, if it works, he'll have his own identity aside from being a Kardashian groupie and will gain fame in his own right.

Scott seems to really care about his son and Kourtney, but the fact that his whole life is a reality TV show, and likely a soon to be failing one, can put a lot of pressure on him. I would never want to see a family break apart, but I can certainly understand Scott's concerns about remaining associated with one of America's most fame-whoring families.
