By moving to New York with her boyfriend, Scott Disick, Kourtney Kardashian is hoping for a fresh start — a new life together, far away from the Miami and LA clubs where Scott’s wild behavior so often broke her heart. But when the pair made their first public appearance in their new home in the Hamptons on July 24 — it seemed there was already trouble between them. “Kourtney appeared to be in good spirits, but Scott didn’t even flash the hint of a smile,” says a witness who ran into Kourtney. “Other than their first photo op, they didn’t touch and hardly ever seemed to even talk to each other.”
For Kourtney and Scott, 27, the move to New York could truly be the beginning of the end. By relocating to Scott’s hometown, Kourtney is coming face-to-face with her boyfriend’s past, which, In Touch has learned, is much darker than she could ever have imagined. “He was worse than anyone knows,” reveals an old friend of Scott’s, who describes shocking stories of hard partying, disgusting public behavior — and sex tapes with a number of women. “Scott and all his close friends were in this fake ‘gang’ called the Scummers,” the friend recalls. “They would do all these really awful things together.” The friend claims that Scott met girls at clubs and brought them home. “When he was hooking up with a girl in bed, his friends would be in the closet, videotaping what was going on. Sometimes, his friends would jump out of the closet. He’d try to let them join in.” Scott collected the tapes, which would be bound to humiliate Kourtney should they ever surface. And shockingly, the friend believes that the tapes still exist at a friend’s apartment in New York City.
