Alfonso Ribeiro has just thrown major shade at Kourtney Kardashian's ex Scott Disick.

Why, you ask? Well, it's been rumoured that Dancing With The Stars producers want to sign Keeping Up With The Kardashians star Scott for the new series of the show.

Alfonso was asked by a TMZ reporter what he thought about the speculation, and Alfonso's response was a tad surprising...

"I neither know of him or care about him enough to have an opinion," he said. "He's not a star. It's not Dancing with the what? Dancing with a guy who's married to a family who are stars, I guess?"

The reporter then said that Scott being on KUWTK and just part of the Kardashians in general would surely be good for the show.

But Alfonso, best known for playing Carlton Banks on The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air, disagreed: "I wouldn't necessarily say they've been good for ratings in that show, they've been part of a cast."

Alfonso wasn't finished just yet...

When asked once again if viewers would tune in to watch Scott on DWTS, Alfonso said while laughing: "I don't think anyone's tuning in for Scott Disick... he's just a guy who hangs out in bars."


If Scott did join the show, he wouldn't actually be the first Kardashian-Jenner to take part. Kourtney's brother Rob Kardashian appeared on the 13th series of DWTS (which is basically the American version of Strictly Come Dancing) in 2011 with pro dancer Cheryl Burke, where he came runner up.

Meanwhile, Alfonso won series 19 of DWTS in 2014 with pro dancer Witney Carson.
