Kourtney Kardashian is embarrassed for Scott Disick over ‘trashy’ hookups

Kourtney Kardashian may be living that yacht life in Cannes this week, but she’s not on board with ex Scott Disick‘s recent poolside PDA session with Bella Thorne.

After jetting out of Los Angeles together, Disick, 34, and Thorne, 19, were spotted getting close and cuddly on Wednesday in Cannes as they lounged in swimwear on sun beds at a luxury private villa.

“Kourtney thinks that the idea of Scott and Bella dating is embarrassing, particularly because she’s so young,” a source told PEOPLE of the Keeping Up with the Kardashians star.

The source added, “She also thinks Bella is a little trashy so the idea of the two of them dating definitely bothers her a bit.”

But, it seems, Scott wasn’t content with just the teenage former Disney star. After Bella bailed out of Cannes, he was spotted with two other young women over the next two days – stylist Chloe Bartoli and Bella’s pal Maggie Petrova.

That said, Kardashian isn’t lacking for companionship herself. She’s been spending time with 24-year-old model Younes Bendjima in Cannes too — and the source notes that Kardashian, 38, is able to “brush off” her frustrations with Disick because “she is doing her own thing and is keeping busy with her own new boy toy” and that Bendjima is “fun for Kourtney.”

“Kourtney is having fun and he makes her happy,” another source said on Monday. “After all the drama with Scott, Younes is a great distraction. Scott is an absolute mess. Kourtney is aware, but seems less bothered by it.”

Disick and Kardashian’s three children are currently in Los Angeles, and according to the source, Disick “hasn’t been around much for the kids.”

“Kourtney is like a single mom — she’s also the best mom,” said the source. “She really deserves a break for a few days.”

Modern Family star Sarah Hyland — who has previously talked about her battle with kidney dysplasia, which required a kidney transplant in 2012 — posted a series of notes on Twitter on Wednesday to explain that she’s been dealing with health issues over the last 12 months.

Because of her health, the actress says she’s been unable to keep up her fitness and has been dealing with online bullying for her “skinny” weight.

“‘Eat a burger,’ ‘your head is bigger than your body and that’s disgusting,’ ” the 26-year-old quoted. “And you’re right! … No one’s head should be bigger than their body but considering I’ve basically been on bed rest for the past few months, I’ve lost a lot of muscle mass. My circumstances have put me in a place where I’m not in control of what my body looks like. So I strive to be as healthy as possible, as everyone should.”

“Oh and no that’s not photoshop. Those are my legs. Those are my arms. I write this because I’ve been accused of promoting anorexia in, ironically enough, an anti bullying post. And I want young girls to know that that’s NOT my intention,” she added.

Hyland said she has been “eating as much protein as possible” to maintain her muscles, but admitted that it’s tough to see them disappearing. That said, she isn’t bothered by the negative comments.

“I don’t mind when you say that I look pregnant. Or fat. Because I know that my face is swollen from my medication that is saving my life,” she said, of her Prednisone usage. “My self confidence is not rendered from your comments. Because I will always be too fat. I will always be too skinny. I will never have enough curves to be called a woman. And I will always be a slut for wearing a push up bra. Love the you you set out to be. Be the best version of yourself. Be

Ariana Grande shared a heartfelt letter on Twitter Friday following the shocking terrorist attack at her Manchester concert Monday night that left 22 people killed and 119 injured from an explosive device detonated by a suicide bomber.

“There is nothing I or anyone can do to take away the pain you are feeling or to make this better. However, I extend my hand and heart and everything I possibly can give to you and yours, should you want or need my help in any way,” the 23-year-old singer wrote. “The only thing we can do now is choose how we let this affect us and how we live our lives from here on out.”

The “Dangerous Woman” singer said she’s been thinking of her fans “non-stop” since the attack, and has been inspired and proud of the “compassion, kindness, love, and strength” they’ve shown one another.

She wrote, “I am sorry for the pain and fear that you must be feeling and for the trauma that you, too, must be experiencing. We will never be able to understand why events like this take place because it is not in our nature, which is why we shouldn’t recoil. We will not quit or operate in fear. We won’t let this divide us. We won’t let hate win.”

Grande also announced she will be returning to England to stage a benefit concert to honor and raise money for the victims and their families. “Our response to this violence must be to come closer together, to help each other, to love more, to sing louder and to live more kindly and generously than we did before,” she said.

An afternoon break came before the evening celebrations, which were held in a glass palace shipped all from Belgium and erected on the Middleton family property for the occasion. Starting at 7 p.m., 350 guests — including Prince Harry and Meghan Marklearrived for the evening reception.
