So you’ve all seen the picture, now let me tell you what meeting Scott ‘The Lord’ Disick was really like.
I am a big fan of the Kardashian brand and frequently feature them & their fashion on my blog. However, I was under no false pretences as to how much of a dick Scott would be. I know a lot of you are fans of Scott but I’m going to tell the complete honest truth about last nights experience.
Fans paid £95 a ticket for an exclusive chance to meet Scott with a 2 hour q&a session. This was due to happen 6-8pm. Scott arrived at 7.20.
I would like to say before I continue that Ledigo PR did such a great job of organising the evening. Everything from the venue, to the Scott covered cupcakes, to the decor was perfect. There was even an opportunity to do some shopping whilst you waited (and waited, and waited.) Dominic Halpin and The Honey Bs provided a warm up music set with some jazzy covers however 1 hour and 20 minutes into the event there was still no Scott. A rando ‘real housewive of Cheshire’ was even pulled from the audience for a short interview whilst fans grew impatient.
Before Scott came on, organiser and head of Ledigo PR came on stage to let everyone know that Scott was in the hotel and getting ready (Really? Because he was wearing the same clothes that he had been in and been pictured in all day.) She also stated that Scott had requested no screaming, no getting out of seats and no grabbing as Scott would like a relaxed and calm environment. Along came Scott who awkwardly perched at the bottom of the stage. Wearing black skinny jeans, YSL shoes, some god forsaken piece of knitwear and a black baseball cap it’s safe to say this was the first disappointment. Scott who is known for his lavish and somewhat flamboyant attire was hands down the least underdressed person in the room. How embarrassing. Even his bodyguards looked more dapper than he. Chelsea Norris from Key 103 was her brilliant self and did a great job of hosting what appeared to be an absolute struggle of an interview. Chelsea went on to ask a few basic questions (any further probing and he would have combusted on the spot) ‘have you ever been to manchester before?’ She asked and he responded by complaining how everywhere in the UK takes so long to get to ‘Ive been in a car ride for 16 hours’ Hun. Pretty sure nowhere in the UK takes 16 hours to get to – you are from America are you kidding me we are tiny! He then compared the UK to his hometown of New York where ‘everywhere only takes like 15 minutes to get to’ Chelsea tried to save the moment with some light hearted comments ‘Well at least the traffic is the same as in New York’ to which Scott responded ‘not really.’ The ultimate blow. Before being escorted to his photo area he made sure everyone got a look at one of his crews head which he claimed to have shaved that day ‘he’s a psychopath guys!’ Scott hun, don’t joke that your friends are psychopaths when you look like that.
So alas, people queued to take photos. The people who had paid £95 for a ticket aka the ‘VIPs’ were allowed to take a photo on their mobile device as well as the professional photo! Lucky them! But oh, no selfies allowed. The rest of the group who had ONLY paid about £50 were told that no individual photos were allowed and his bodyguard said and I quote ‘if you don’t have a friend then find one if you can’t find one then I’ll get in the picture with you.’ Now let me tell you, if I had PAID for this opportunity to be told I had to share my photo there would be hell to pay. I would have out-diva’d Scott if that’s even possible.
It wasn’t even like the crowd was rowdy, most were on edge if anything. A group of 13 year old girls had excitedly spoken about all of the things that they were going to tell him and ask him and get signed. I’m glad I didn’t see the look on their faces when their photo op came and Scott looked like this –
So by this point I wasn’t even excited to meet him. The things I was going to say to him were left totally unsaid (‘big fan of the show/ glad you can publically speak about anxiety issues on the show as an attempt to help fans who also suffer.’) Instead I half glared through a ‘Hi Scott / Bye Scott’ His eyes saw mine but there was no recognition or response. He was totally out of it on what I presume were prescription medicine /sleeping pills. Apparently he was swigging from a wine bottle also. Oh and he STUNK of smoke. Not like a just had a quick cig forgot to spray kinda smell, a wash your clothes stale kinda smell.
Columnist for So Cheshire, Ella Jane Brookbanks was there to cover the event for her magazine. She rightly took to twitter after the event to show her disdain for the way Scott presented himself and did what was on everybody’s mind – tweeted Kourtney!
She also thanked Scott for showing her 12 year old son that having money does not make you happy or cool!
This is so relevant considering the event was branded as the UKs only meet and greet where under 18s were allowed. He definitely wasn’t child friendly last night – it should have been restricted to 18+ – however like Ella said, it is a good advert to children who idolise these people without understanding what the high life can really be like. I do really try to not bitch about celebrities on my blog as we as consumers, never know what the real truth is, and after the sudden loss of Scotts parents earlier this year, it was expected that he might turn back to his party animal ways but this was not party animal. I would have embraced party animal. Maybe we would have got a few more words out of him. This was UNWELL. Scott, get back home to your children and newborn and GET SOME HELP!!!!
Scott looks so unamused on my photo but at least it’s not this one. Hilarious.
