What Happened to Scott Disick?
While sitting down with Kris during a season 3 episode, Scott rehashed his harrowing car accident from 2022. Images of his vehicle flipped over appeared on screen as he described the incident.
“So, I was going to pick Mason up because we were going to a movie. I was driving by myself,” he explained. “I made a right, and then the curbs in that neighborhood are not flat curbs — they are kind of like little lips. So, the wheel came into the little lip and made it pull a little, and by the time it pulled, it smacked into a pillar.”
Scott shares Mason in addition to Reign and Penelope with ex Kourtney Kardashian. The two have been co-parenting their children since they split in 2015.
The Talentless founder continued by revealing that the car hit and “and did a somersault forward, then hit, then landed. I was up there [in the car] strapped in and hanging. Then, I couldn’t get out, and I tried the sunroof.”
The ordeal led to a serious back injury for Scott, and he revealed during season 4 to Khloé that he had been living with the pain.
“Ever since that car accident, [my pain] got worse over time,” he admitted to the Good American founder. Khloé then encouraged Scott to see a doctor, who explained that Scott’s injury would improve over time with physical therapy.
Though Scott initially insisted he did not want to undergo surgery, he told Kendall in a later episode of The Kardashians that he was giving it some thought after experiencing “dual back problems” from a dirt bike accident with son Mason.
“Did you know that I might have to get back surgery from the car accident I was in?” he asked Kendall. “My back sucks. I was with Mason, and we were out on the little dirt bikes. He was asking me to teach him how to wheelie, so I fell backwards right onto my tailbone. Now, I have dual back problems.”

“He’s barely mobile, and it is all from his back,” the reality TV star noted. “That wouldn’t make anyone feel good. I think Scott needs to realize these things are fixable. You can’t let it get you down.”
