Scott Disick recently appeared in a short feature for E! where he outlined “6 Tips to Live Like a Lord”. The joke is that Disick himself is often referred to — usually by Scott Disick — as “Lord Disick”. This started when he was actually bought the faux title of “Lord” while on a trip to England in Season 7 of Keeping Up with the Kardashians. Real knighthoods are honorary titles only bestowed by the Queen herself.
Disick’s “6 Tips” are:
Step 1: Become Royalty
Step 2: Have Amazing Style
Step 3: Stay Sexy
Step 4: Be Direct
Step 5: Have Toys
Step 6: Remain Humble
That last step is a real tongue-in-cheek revelation, because Disick is quoted as saying, “I’ve always been into being ultra-rich”, and “It’s kind of relaxing just to come to sit back and think about all the money I made today.”
Throughout the video, Disick is shown spending outrageous sums of money for mini helicopters, Steinway pianos, jets, and other frivolous items.
So where does Lord Disick get his dough?
It is tempting to presume that Disick gets his money just from appearing on Keeping Up with the Kardashians and its various spinoffs, including the upcoming Kourtney and Khloe Take the Hamptons, in which he appears prominently. But Disick insists that he isn’t just freeloading off the Kardashian brand.
Back in January, Worthly reported that Disick’s net worth was $12 million, while girlfriend Kourtney has a net worth of $20 million. While Disick makes a healthy sum for his Kardashians appearances, he was wealthy before he even met a Kardashian.
Scott Disick’s grandfather, David M. Disick, works in fractional real estate, writing the book Fractional Vacation Homes: Marketing and Sales in Challenging Times, as well as many other articles on the topic. Formerly an attorney, the elder Disick made a fortune in real estate.
Scott Disick’s parents, Jeffrey and Bonnie, were wealthy as well. Scott was raised in a life of luxury and resorts. He was an only child. When both Bonnie and Jeffrey died within months of each other within the past year, Scott Disick was left alone.
Scott Disick says that he has his own business interests, rather than just living off his grandfather’s money. He told Haute Living:
“I’m sure a lot of people have no idea what it is that I do. The truth is I work in various industries. I have done a lot of private label manufacturing in the nutrition biz and have raised money for startup companies. I tend to invest money into nightlife businesses the friends of mine that are involved in nightclubs and what not.”
With the kind of money he makes from the Kardashians series alone, Disick can afford to live like a Lord for quite a while. TV Guide Magazine reported that the Kardashian clan — which includes Disick — makes $10 million collectively for KUWTK alone. The spinoffs would be more money. Hollywood Reporter determined that the Kardashian clan made $65 million in 2010 alone, with all enterprises related to the family brand considered.
