A year ago, Kanye West and Kim Kardashian West were the talk of Israel when they baptized their daughter, North, in the Armenian Quarter of the Old City of Jerusalem.
Today, Scott Disick, Kourtney Kardashian’s Jewish ex-boyfriend, was the one looking for a religious experience in the city.
The “Keeping Up With the Kardashians” star arrived for a short visit to the Holy Land on Tuesday night with Kardashian sister and teen-queen Kylie Jenner. Disick took in the sights in Jerusalem and Tel Aviv, where he is [rumored to be in talks to buy a $6 million Luxury penthouse.
Always very vocal about his Jewishness, Disick has three children with the eldest Kardashian sister. He has also been public about his struggle with alcohol and substance abuse and his efforts to stay sober following several stints in rehab.
The 33 year old shared a photo of himself being blessed by a rabbi at the Western Wall. Fittingly, as the king of one-liners on KUWK, Disck captioned the photo “Blessings on blessing on blessings on blessings.”
And he found “Hashem is everywhere.”
Of course, no visit to Tel Aviv would be complete without a piping hot shakshuka, and Lord Disick certainly enjoyed the dish.
But whatever reaction Disick has garnered on the streets of Israel is nothing compared to the attention Jenner will get the moment she so much as looks out her hotel window.
The Pont des Arts footbridge over the Seine in central Paris was closed for a few hours on Sunday after a metal grill laden with padlocks left by amorous couples collapsed onto the walkway.
Padlocks began appearing on bridges in Paris and other European cities more than five years ago left by people seeking to symbolize their enduring love - often inscribed with couples’ names. Lovers typically throw the keys into the river. Among the many famous faces who have have sealed their love with a padlock are Kim Kardashian and sister Kourtney Kardashian — who induldged in the tradition with Jewish boyfriend Scott Disick.
Nobody was hurt by the “love lock” incident, a city official told French media on Monday, adding that the bridge had reopened and the two grills across a 2.4 meter stretch of the bridge replaced temporarily by wooden panels.
But in a tweet posted on the city’s official web site, Bruno Juillard, the city’s elected head of cultural affairs, said it “confirms that our desire to find an alternative to these locks is a real necessity.”
The railings of several Paris bridges, including the central Pont des Arts which has a commanding view of the Ile de la Cite from the west, have since all but disappeared behind festoons of padlocks.
Paris authorities, who inspect and replace panels twisted or made unsafe by the weight of the locks, have faced calls to clamp down on the practice on esthetic grounds. But they have been reluctant to take stiffer measures for fear of hurting the city’s tourist industry and its worldwide reputation as a city of love.
Paris Mayor Anne Hidalgo last month invited citizens to “open a debate around the phenomenon of ‘love locks’ with a view to finding alternatives”.
The crème de la crème of Hollywood, fashion and music worlds will descend on Paris this weekend for the royal Kimye nuptials.
Kim Kardashian and Kanye West’s rumored Versailles (or Florence?) May 24th, wedding has the world watching and waiting with bated breath. What will the bride wear? Will North crawl down the aisle? Will Kanye finally smile? How soon will they divorce?
With only 100 on the guestlist, the intimate, and if we know anything about the Kardashians, extravagant affair will be an unforgettable and custom affair replete with the best money can buy. But did you know that some of Kardashian’s best accessories throughout the years have been her Jewish friends? We count the top five Jews in Kardashian’s life.
1. Lorraine Schwartz
Diamonds are a girl’s best friend, but a custom15-carat Lorraine Schwartz engagement ring is a girl’s soul mate. West proposed to Kardashian at San Francisco’s AT&T Park with the help of a Jumbotron displaying “PLEEEASE MARRY MEEE!!!.” But more instrumental was the flawless ring Jewish jeweler to the stars, Schwartz, designed for the couple. Here she posts a photo of North West holding the ring.
2. Alber Elbaz
Kardashian’s new favorite designer Alber Elbaz, the creative director of Lanvin, one of the world’s most respected fashion houses. Elbaz, the Israeli Moroccan designer has made a name for himself in the high fashion world. He recently dressed Kardashian for her Vogue cover story and the 2014 Met Gala.

3. Scott Disick
Let’s just call him Jewish-boyfriend-in-law. Older sister, Kourtney Kardashian’s long-time boyfriend Scott Disick is a Long Island Jewish boy who has become part of the Kardashian klan and made a name for himself as Keeping Up With the Kardashians’ black sheep with a drinking problem.
4. Jonathan Cheban
The title of Kardashian’s BFF goes to none other than PR extraordinaire Jonathan Cheban. The Russian Jewish native of Fort Lee, NJ ascended up the celebrity ladder as a PR consultant to the stars to eventually become Kardashian’s best friend. Kardashian even executive produced his short-lived reality show The Spin Crowd. He will no doubt be front and center as Kimye take their vows.
5. Bar Refaeli
The second Israeli on the list is one of the world’s most popular supermodels, Bar Refaeli. Kardashian and Refaeli have become friends over the last few years and the Israeli beauty and Leonard DiCaprio’s ex is among the select few to be invited to the wedding.
Scott Disick became the most obnoxious person in the world this weekend when he instagrammed the wad of hundred dollar bills that he supposedly uses as toilet paper (or at least, wants us to think so). The caption reads: “I know yall didn’t think I would actually use toilet paper!” Whew! Thanks for clearing that up.
Kourtney Kardashian’s Jewish baby daddy had fun putting filters on stacks of green artfully placed on a number of objects around the house, including an Hermes purse and expensive watches and jewelry.
So yeah, Scott has money. Thanks for the show.
