Keeping Up with the Kardashians returned with a record-breaking season 18 in 2020.
Ever since the reality show aired on E! Entertainment, it has detailed every little bit and part of the Kardashian-Jenner clan’s life. From the glitz and drama to new relationships and children, viewers across the world have seen the growth and success of the glamorous family.
In Thursday’s episode (April 30th), Scott Disick candidly opened up about the death of his parents which he has avoided talking about in the past.
How did Scott Disick’s parents die?
Scott Disick’s mother Bonnie Disick died from a long illness, while the death of his father Jeff Disick is unknown.
According to a previous media report from Los Angeles Times, Bonnie died at the age of 63 in 2013 from an illness that she suffered for a long time.
Scott’s father Jeff passed away just a few months after his mother’s death, but there has been a bigger mystery around his death as Scott never revealed what illness his dad had suffered from.
Previous reports have suggested that Jeff had cancer and died in a nursing home in Los Angeles. He died in January 2014, three months after Bonnie’s death.
