Sad news from the Kardashian family this morning.Multiple media outlets are confirming that Scott Disick’s father Jeffrey has passed away. The Keeping Up with the Kardashians star and father to Kourtney Kardashian’s two children has yet to comment on his loss, but it’s a devastating blow for the reality star, who lost his mother to an unspecified illness just two months ago.
No cause of death has been reported, so we still don’t know how Jeffrey Disick, 63, passed away. However, sources close to the Scott say that Jeffrey, who lived on Long Island, was in Los Angeles at the time of his death. Scott’s father’s passing does seem to be unexpected, as just last week the reality star was vacationing in Park City, Utah with Kourtney Kardashian and most of her family. An insider told E! News, “The whole family is so devastated and Scott is beside himself. Scott is an only child with no remaining family.”
Jeffrey’s death comes just two months after Scott’s mother Bonnie, also 63, passed away in November. Bonnie, who was reportedly quite close with Scott, appeared infrequently on Keeping Up with the Kardashians along with her husband. Scott was their only child, and several episodes featured him, Kourtney and their two children visiting Bonnie and Jeffrey at their home in the Hamptons. Following Bonnie’s death, Scott and Kourtney traveled to the East Coast for the small funeral, and later jetted to the Dominican Republic to recuperate.While there, they were overheard discussing plans to expand their own family, with Scott saying, “I want an entire soccer team.”
No details have been released about funeral plans or arrangements, and neither Scott nor Kourtney have mentioned Jeffrey’s passing on their social media accounts.Scott’s most recent post on Twitter is from New Year’s Eve, when he was still in Utah with most of the Kardashian clan.
