Is Scott Disick Joining ‘Dancing With the Stars’? — Report (UPDATE)
UPDATE 2/17: Us Weekly cites sources saying Scott will not be joining the show, both because ABC absolutely will not bend on the money issue, and because he is not in a good state to be making this kind of commitment anyway, after his recent stint in rehab.
Still no official word either way, but we don't expect to see him in the ballroom this spring.

According to a new report, Kourtney Kardashian estranged baby daddy is considering joining the dancing competition show, but only for a steep price.
TMZ reports the 32-year-old has been asked to be part of the Season 22 cast, but he's only willing to do it for $500k, guaranteed.
However, ABC apparently told him every star gets the same salary. As we know from Bindi Irwin's revealed contract, last season the payout was $125k guaranteed, plus increasingly large amounts per week the longer you stayed.

Those who made the finals made $360k, and we expect the number to be similar this season. That's a lot of money, but not up to Scott's demands, and, according to TMZ's sources, he's not willing to come down on his price.
It sounds like we won't be seeing this father of three shake his stuff this season, unless someone finally gives in on this salary issue.
