However, fans were delighted over the weekend after his dad, Scott Disick, shared a sweet picture featuring the 11-year-old and his younger siblings Penelope, nine, and Reign, six, playing on the beach.
The siblings had gone away on vacation with both their parents and their partners. Kourtney is currently dating Travis Barker, while Scott is dating Amelia Hamlin.

Kourtney opened up about the incident during an Instagram Live with Poosh, where she explained: "He [Mason] started an Instagram yesterday and he didn't ask us. He has an iPad and a computer for his school.
"I did delete it, because Scott and I feel like – he's 10. I think there's an age limit with Instagram. I think it's 13."

She added: "I think on Instagram, the thing that really worries me with kids is the comments. People can be so mean and I just feel it's not the time."

The star initially made her son's Instagram account private so that he could still use it with his friends, but Mason had other ideas! "I made it private," she explained.
"And he turned it back to public without me knowing, so I deleted it." Kourtney has spoken out about the downside of being in the public eye as a parent, telling Rose Inc that "the worst" form of trolling is people giving her "unsolicited parenting advice".
She said: "The worst, though, is when people give unsolicited parenting advice. No one knows my kids better than me. I've got this. I'm good, thanks."
