Who Is Scott Disick
Scott Disick is a television personality and entrepreneur who gained notoriety from featuring in Keeping Up With The Kardashians and the show’s many spin offs. The media personality is best known for being Kourtney Kardashian’s former partner, having three children with her, and constantly battling with her family, to which he has become famous for having melt downs and major anger problems. He has accrued most of his wealth from inheritance, but the entrepreneur has also made a name for himself in the medical sector and in real estate. Outside of the US, Disick is known to fans of Kanye West for helping to promote Yeezus by famously starring in an American Psycho parody.
As of 2020, Scott Disick has a net worth of $45 million dollars.
How Did Scott Disick Get So Rich?
When Disick gets dressed every day, he always chooses a different multi-thousand dollar watch to go with the outfit, which depends on the day’s activity. He didn’t get to owning dozens of Rolexes and Patek Philippes by featuring in his maybe-girlfriend’s reality show from time to time. Though he hasn’t always been a successful business man, as he opened a Japanese restaurant, Ryu, in New York City in 2012 that closed down less than 200 days later, he has since invested in some very financially successful businesses. Disick started Monte Carlo, a tanning product for men, which Disick calls “Liquid Sunshine”, and it sells very well across the world.
Most recently, Disick started the clothing line Talentless in 2018, which focuses on comfort wear including sweatshirts and cargo pants. And as Disick comes from a family full of real estate developers, the entrepreneur has worked for his father’s business from a very young age, and he has gotten to know the real estate industry inside and out. Thanks to this, Disick has recently began a career in flipping houses and has become unbelievably successful at it. The renovator bought a house in Hidden Hills, California for $3 million in 2018, and that same house is now on the market for an insane $13 million.
Why Is He So Famous?
Though he took up modelling before getting involved in the Kardashians’ web of pseudo realistic narratives across multiple media outlets, Disick wasn’t well known until he featured in Keeping Up with The Kardashians, when he first started dating Kourtney Kardashian. He quickly made a name for himself on the show as the token “d-bag”, as he would be constantly fighting with the family and generally treating Kourtney terribly. The one constant on the show, which has been going for thirteen years and counting, is that the pair of them are always in flux, being the on-again, off-again, will-they, won’t-they couple, which acts as a sort of bait to keep audiences watching.
Along with the flagship show Keeping Up With The Kardashians, Disick has also made regular appearances on the franchise’s spin-off series, including Kourtney and Khloe Take Miami, Kourtney and Kim Take New York, and Kourtney and Khloe Take The Hamptons. The TV personality was also the victim of Punk’d when Tyler, The Creator was the guest host. In the episode, Disick was being threatened to have his car impounded, to which he acted unsurprisingly and characteristically irrational, trying to bribe the employee. When it was revealed that it was all a prank, Disick acted even more irrationally and didn’t find the humor in it at all.
Disick is famous for having an alcohol addiction as it has been heavily documented not only in the tabloids, but in the Kardashian shows too. Though it may be exaggerated in the show, as it can become the catalyst for conflict and arguments to keep the show dramatically arousing for audiences, it is a real problem to which Disick has visited rehab several times. This has caused controversy among viewers, as many believe an addiction like that shouldn’t be a plot point of a reality show, but should be handled with care. Though he has gotten sober a couple of times in the 2010s, it remains a bad habit that Disick often returns to.
One of the most controversial events in the Kardashian family included Disick, as the male model Michael Girgenti slapped a paternity lawsuit on Kourtney in 2013. Girgenti believed that he was the real father of one of Kourtney and Disick’s children. However, this was proven as false when Disick took a paternity test himself and the result revealed that he is in fact the father.
What Makes Disick Successful?
Disick suffers from major anger issues, and this is no better documented than in Keeping Up With The Kardashians and the other shows affiliated with it. This might be a strange reason to become successful, but it is the reason why he has gotten so much attention that he has. Millions of people tune in to the shows that he’s in just to hate-watch him, as he often kicks off with Khloe Kardashian in every scene they find themselves together in.
Though Disick is very business savvy, he completely lacks any self awareness, which has helped him become the subject of conversations across America on several occasions, earn a multitude of TV appearances, and even get his own reality show. As in 2013, the personality starred in one of the weirdest promotional videos for an album ever, as he impersonated Patrick Bateman, originally played by Christian Bale in American Psycho, in the iconic scene where he talks about Huey Lewis and the News right before murdering somebody. West clearly intended for this to be a parody, but Disick took it way too seriously.
Disick has ultimately had an extremely lucky life, as he was born in to millions, is the heir to a real estate empire, and dated a member of arguably the most famous family in the world, but he has also found success on his own watch (or watches). All totalled up, Scott Disick has an estimated net worth of $40 million, and with the success of flipping houses, that wealth is likely to continue to sky rocket. The TV personality is currently documenting his mansion flipping on his own reality show, Flip It Like Disick.
