A teaser for next week's episode of Keeping Up With the Kardashians previews a fiery exchange between Scott Disick and Corey Gamble when the subject of seven-year-old Penelope's behaviour launches a war of words at a family dinner.
The 36-year-old star of Flip it like Disick star is barely able to contain his rage, exploding at Kris Kardashian's much younger boyfriend when he says he would "whip Penelope's a**".
During the dinner Kourtney mentions that she no longer has a nanny, and alludes to the fact that little Penelope "P" scratched the last one on the face.
"If P scratched me, I'm whipping her a**!" interjects 38-year-old Corey.
"My daughter?" Scott responds in seeming disbelief.
Not backing down, Corey says that he'd: "Give her a spanking for sure!"
Now raging, Scott responds: "My little daughter?" and an equally furious Corey solidifies his stance by stating: "Whippin' is that discipline!"
As the argument escalates, a now furious Scott aggressively demands: "Don't ever talk about a child like that!"
"Motherf** what you talking about?" says Corey, who seems shocked by Scott's rage.
While the two men go head-to-head, Kim and Kourtney Kardashian, Jonathan Cheban and Kris Jenner sit by and try to process what is happening.
Scott goes full New York as the clip ends with him demanding Corey "Get the f* outta here!"
He might not have been the most committed father at the beginning, which in turn led to the demise of the ten-year-relationship he had with Kourtney back in 2015.
However in years since, Scott has proven his worth as a father to their three children, Mason (9), Penelope (7) and Reign (4).
The pair have worked out a co-parenting strategy that puts the children first, always and it's to be admired.
But there is perhaps a further element adding another layer to Scott's rage, and that's the access that Corey has to his children.

And that's the fact that in the past the relationship between 40-year-old Kourtney and Corey has come into question,
With his partner, 63-year-old Kardashian matriarch Kris constantly busy running the empire she has built as the 'momager' of her six very successful children, her much younger beau who works as Justin Bieber's tour manager has a lot of spare time on his hands.
Time that he likes to spend with Kourtney and her children doing the kind of day-today activities that might appear as though they were a family unit.
During last season of Keeping Up with the Kardashians, Kim Kardashian was so weirded out by the time that the pair spent together that she brought it up to sister Khloe, asking her: "Do you find it at all bizarre that Kourtney and Corey are BFF. Like every photo I see of them.
Khloe was quick to agree, making mention of a photo they had taken together (above) while going for a hike.
"Yes! That looked like a family photo!" Kim agreed. "That was so inappropriate. I was like uncomfortable. Like, out of this world."
Now we have to next week to see how all of this is going to unfold!
Keeping Up With The Kardashians airs on Channel E! on Foxtel on Mondays at 11am simulcast and 7:30pm encore.
