Keeping Up with the Kardashian star, Kourtney Kardashian has lost her nanny after an incident with her and Scott Disick's 7-year-old daughter, Penelope "P" Disick. The nanny reportedly quit after Penelope scratched her in the face. The incident was discussed on last Sunday's episode of Keeping Up with the Kardashians.
Kourtney is known for the wildly popular reality TV show on E!, Keeping Up with the Kardashians, in which cameras follow around her, her mom Kris Jenner, and her four sisters - Kim Kardashian West, Khloé Kardashian, Kendall Jenner, and Kylie Jenner. Kourtney, who is the eldest of the Kardashian/Jenner sisters, has three children with ex Scott Disick - the star of Flip It like Disick. Kourtney and Scott share three children over the course of their nine-year-long relationship, 9-year-old Mason Disick, 7-year-old Penelope Disick, and 4-year-old Reign Disick. The two parents have been co-parenting since their split in 2015.
Scott and Kourtney's parenting was in question this past week when a teaser for Keeping Up with the Kardashians revealed that Kris' longtime boyfriend, Corey Gamble, told Scott and Kourtney in regards to Penelope, "If P scratch me, I'm whipping her a**." Finally, the back story and some context are revealed as to why Corey said that. In last Sunday's episode, the family is at dinner and the eldest Kardashian sister revealed (via Us), "I don’t have a nanny anymore." Kourtney goes on to explain, "She said P was really upset. She was putting her in the car, and she scratched her in the face. But P can be out of control. I think she almost, like, blacks out and does these wild things." That's when her sister, Kim, tells her to reach out to the nanny and apologize. Kim then added that she's had problems with her children being aggressive with nannies, saying that her 6-year-old daughter, "North tried to bite my nanny and said, 'I don’t want a nanny anymore. You can go home,' and I said, 'You can’t fire our nanny.'"
Their mother, Kris, chimed in and called the situation with Penelope "much more serious" than Kourtney is playing it off to be. The matriarch explains, "I have six kids. Not once in my entire life did anyone ever have a complaint like this." The grandmother of Penelope explains, "We need to take care of this before it gets too far out of control." Kourtney immediately disagreed with her mom, telling her that she used to "f–king slap [her] nannies, like, bam across the face." However, she agreed that there must be some kind of punishment for Penelope, but explained, "There’s nothing I can take away from [Penelope] physically that she will care about it... Penelope doesn’t care." This is when Kris' boyfriend, Gamble chimed in and said he'd "give her a spanking for sure." While protective dad, Disick, screams, "My little daughter?!" Gamble continues to push the issue, saying that "whippin' is that discipline" that Penelope needs. The dinner led into a blow out argument between the two men.
Kourtney bringing up the fact that she doesn't have a nanny anymore led to a discussion that turned serious, very quickly. Some fans agree that Gamble was right for speaking his mind, while many others thought that it wasn't his place and he took it too far. However, whatever the case may be, Kourtney and Penelope are out of a nanny, but it seems celebrity nannies are a dime a dozen in Hollywood.
Keeping Up with the Kardashians airs Sundays at 9 pm EST on E!.
