KOURTNEY Kardashian and Travis Barker’s engagement was kept “HIDDEN” from ex Scott Disick as family feared he’s “profess his love,” The Sun can reveal.
The reality star’s baby daddy has had a “tough time” accepting that his longtime partner is now officially off the market with the Blink-182 drummer and those close to him say he took the news “really hard.”
After word spread like wildfire that Kourtney, 42, said “yes” to Travis, 45, popping the question, fans began to wonder how her ex, Scott, 38, was handling the situation.
"Scott is in a really, really rough place right now,” an insider exclusively told The Sun.
The source continued: “He found out with the rest of the world, he wasn't given a heads up like the rest of the family because they didn't want him to do something to spoil it for Kourtney.”
"They could have seen him doing something dumb like professing his love for her or something. It was a personal moment for Kourtney so he didn't need to be involved.”
According to the source, the reason the “Lord” has had a difficult time with letting his ex go is he “always believed” they would end up together.
“All he needed to do was give up drinking and she would've married him but he didn't so she moved on.
“He feels he had his chance and he blew it so he's been taking it hard.
“The family is fearful he will go off the deep end but at the same time, they are also more focused on Kourtney's happiness than they are Scott's potential downfall,” they added.

The insider revealed some of the preparations for the big proposal, explaining: "Travis asked for Kris' blessing and from there, got the rest of the family involved so they could all be there for the proposal.
“Not surprising that Kris wept as soon as Travis asked, she said she was a mess but excited to officially welcome him into the family.
“Kourt is her firstborn but has never walked down the aisle so after everything she went through with Scott, the family couldn't be happier for Kourtney and Travis.
“It’s no secret they love Travis so much and they are so good for each other.”
Scott and Kourtney were together off-and-on for over 10 years but officially called it quits back in 2015.
Though they split six years ago, fans always speculated if they would get back together - with the pair hinting at rekindling their romance on Keeping Up With The Kardashians last season.
MILLION DOLLAR PROPOSAL
However, Kourtney has maintained she would not get back with Scott unless he gave up drinking and has since moved on with Travis.
Together, Kourtney and Scott share sons Mason, 11, and Reign, 6, along with nine-year-old daughter, Penelope.
The musician proposed to his girlfriend at a beachside hotel in Montecito, CA on Sunday complete with thousands of dollars worth of roses.
Travis had flowers arranged in the shape of a giant heart set up on the beach, with candles flickering all around them.
Hand in hand, Kourt and Travis walked along the water until they found their way inside the floral arrangement, where he got down on one knee.
After popping the question and presenting Kourtney with the engagement ring reportedly worth around $1MILLION, she happily said yes and jumped into Travis' arms for a big kiss.
The happy couple celebrated afterwards with a dinner joined by their kids, Kris Jenner, Kim and Khloe Kardashian and more loved ones.
