Kourtney Kardashian and Scott Disick are an example of how exes can still be friends. Since their breakup in 2015, the reality star have put their differences aside for the sake of their three kids: Mason, 8; Penelope, 6; and Reign, 3. The two are such good coparents that Kardashian celebrated their coparenting skills with an Instagram on Wednesday of her, Disick and Penelope. But as sweet as the picture was, not everyone was pleased about it.
The Instagram featured Kardashian front and center, laying on her side on her bed in a black dress with cutouts. In the background is Penelope who is seen sitting on Disick’s lap, while playing on the phone. The picture, captioned “coparenting,” was another example of the Kardashians’ extra-level behavior. But for many fans, the picture wasn’t funny and was disrespectful to Disick’s current girlfriend, Sofia Richie.
Though many fans praised Kardashian’s coparenting skills, with comments like “#goals,” others were offended at her sexy pose in front of her ex-boyfriend. Many considered the Keeping Up with the Kardashians star’s Instagram to be “disrespectful” toward Richie, with several accusing her of being “jealous” of her ex-boyfriend’s new girlfriend. A few comments included:
“She clearly doesn’t care about his [relationship].”
“She is a disrespectful woman with no dignity.”
“She is very jealous of Sofia because she is beautiful and gorgeous and Scott doesn’t know when he has a good woman next to him.”
Others accused Kardashian of experiencing a “midlife crisis,” while some called her behavior “disrespectful as hell” and “immature and disgusting.” Several fans also disagreed with Kardashian and claimed that her version of coparenting is actually bad for her kids.
“This is not co-parenting, this is petty!” one fan commented. “Confusing the kids is not healthy mentally! Those children are all going to be divorced and have multiple partners thinking it’s OK! Grow up. Let Sofia be with Scott since you wanted him out of your life! You have major issues keeping a man. Baby daddies and baby mamas are a hi and bye, not a let’s mix and mingle.”
With that being said, can we let Kardashian and Disick parent in peace? Everyone’s family and everyone’s relationship is different. Kardashian and Disick seem to be doing well (way better than they were when they were together), so instead of throwing accusations about their character, let’s appreciate the strong family they’ve built.
How about we take a page from Khloé Kardashian and recognize that Kardashian and Disick’s coparenting is “at its finest?”
