Scott Disick’s rekindled relationship with Kimberly Stewart is causing a strain between her and her brother Sean Stewart, who is “very protective” of the “Keeping Up With the Kardashians” alum, a source tells Page Six exclusively.
We’re told that, despite public appearances, Kimberly, 43, and Sean, 42, “do not get along at all,” and the Dirty Weekend clothing founder is concerned his longtime pal, 39, will get hurt.
“Sean is very protective of Scott,” our insider shares. “He probably is scared that Kimberly will break his heart.”
Our source claims that Kimberly would be cruel about Sean, saying, “She doesn’t think he’s smart or has any ambition,” and he’d react to her criticisms publicly.
“He was constantly complaining about her. She bosses him around, yells at him and basically tries to tell him how to run his life,” our source says, adding that Kimberly seemed to be “jealous” of Sean for the attention he received about his clothing line.
“Her relationship with Scott can’t make things any easier between the two siblings either,” our insider adds.
A second source tells us that all three are “super dysfunctional” and notes that Kimberly and Sean’s relationship always has been “up and down.”
“Now that Scott is back [in Sean’s life], Sean is being overly greedy about the time he’s spending with him,” the source explains.
Reps for Disick and the Stewarts didn’t immediately return requests for comment.
In August that Disick and famed musician Rod Stewart’s daughter rekindling their romance didn’t come as a surprise to those close to them.
“It’s not really surprising that she’d take him back,” an insider shared. “He had to go back to his roots because he doesn’t have the stability [he used to with the Kardashians], so this was an easy way in.”
Disick met Kimberly years ago through Sean. It was Kimberly who actually introduced the Talentless founder to her pal Kourtney Kardashian, with whom he’d go on to have three kids.
