Scott Disick posts heartbreaking message to daughter Penelope after missing her third birthday
Scott Disick has published a self-deprecating happy birthday message to daughter Penelope.
The 32-year-old split from Kourtney Kardashian earlier this week after the pair spent nearly a decade together.
Their daughter Penelope turned three years old on July 8, but her dad Scott wasn’t celebrating the day with her in person.
Instead, Scott chose to honour his child’s new age by penning an emotional post on Instagram.
“1 of the only things I'm proud off about myself. Happybdayp (sic),” he wrote on the picture-sharing site Wednesday in a caption attached to an image featuring six cute photographs of little Penelope.
The heavyhearted message was published just four hours after Scott shared a photo of a vintage Jaguar E-type car, writing in the caption: “Need this asap”.
The automobile post sent some fans into a fury, with several lambasting the Keeping Up with the Kardashians star for spending more of his free time focusing on cars than his daughter’s birthday.
“You NEED to be with your family,” one fan expressed on Instagram in the comments section, with another one writing: “Man f*** that car !!! You f***ing Drunk fool !! Go home to your kids .. No longer a lord .. More like drunk dead beat !!”
Scott shares three children with Kourtney, daughter Penelope and sons Mason, five, and Reign, six months.
It’s claimed the patriarch didn’t want to return home to Los Angeles for the little girl’s birthday so he didn’t have to face the wrath of his ex.
“There is no way in hell that Scott is going to come home for Penelope’s birthday,” a source told Radar Online, noting while Kourtney and the children are in California, their dad is in Miami, Florida. “He is terrified of [Kourtney] right now — and he should be.”
The couple’s relationship was said to have ended after photos emerged of him getting cosy with former girlfriend and stylist Chloe Bartoli, as well as his ongoing alcohol and partying problems.
Kourtney, 36, has been photographed out and about with her sisters Kim and Khloé since the news of her relationship breakdown was revealed.
