Are Kylie Jenner and Sofia Richie Still Friends After Scott Disick Split?
It appears things are over for good between Scott Disick and Sofia Richie. Following a whirlwind on-and-off-again romance that lasted three years, the couple has reportedly ended their relationship once and for all.
Now that they’ve gone their separate ways, both Richie and Disick have been spending quality time with those in their tight-knit inner circles. But given their recent breakup, we wonder, has the couple’s relationship issues impacted Richie’s once “irreplaceable bond” with Kylie Jenner?
Scott Disick and Sofia Richie first called it quits in May
When the world first got wind that Disick and Richie were dating, despite their 15-year age difference, the reactions were generally mixed.
Though some were onboard with the couple embarking on a relationship, others were convinced that the romance was headed for disaster. But despite many people believing that the pair’s romance would only last a few months, they ultimately proved everyone wrong and maintained a loving relationship for three years.
However, in May 2020, sources confirmed that Disick and Richie had called it quits after the Keeping Up With the Kardashians star’s short-lived stay at a Colorado rehab facility.
Though insiders claimed the couple’s relationship had “ran its course,” they also noted that other issues, including Disick’s “past traumas,” contributed to the split.
“Scott had gone back to his old ways, and Sofia got fed up,” a source told Page Six. The insider also claimed Disick’s close bond with ex Kourtney Kardashian may have been a factor in the breakup. “Kourtney didn’t make it easy for her, and you can only tolerate that kind of treatment for so long,” the source added.
Scott Disick and Sofia Ricke broke up again after reconciling
After news broke of Disick and Richie’s split, insiders revealed that the reality star was spending quality time with Kardashian and their three kids in Utah.
Following their family vacation, rumors began to surface that Disick and Kardashian were rekindling their relationship after Us Weekly reported that the Flip It Like Disick star was still in love with the Poosh founder.
“Scott is always going to be in love with Kourtney, and that’s something Sofia has had to face since even before she got serious with him,” a source told the outlet.
However, People reported that Disick and Kardashian were “not back together,” just “incredibly close.”
After doing their own things for two months, Richie and Disick reconciled, with media outlets reporting that they were “hanging out again romantically. It’s back on.”
But following a brief reconciliation, sources confirmed that the couple had called it quits once again, citing their age difference as a factor in the breakup.
“They have been off and on for two months,” an insider told E! News on Aug. 19. “Sofia really pushed to make things work between them after they initially broke up, but Scott officially called it off recently and they are no longer speaking.”
The source added, “Friends attributed their 15-year age difference becoming an issue. He’s in a very much different place in his life, really focused on a more quiet lifestyle, his kids and his investment businesses. And Sofia, at 21 years, really still trying to figure what she wants to do which drove them apart over time.”
Where does Sofia Richie’s relationship with Kylie Jenner currently stand?
Now that Disick and Richie have broken up for good, the question of whether the model is still close with Kardashian’s half-sister, Kylie Jenner, remains.
Before Richie started dating the Lord, she was friends with the Kylie Cosmetics founder. Though they weren’t extremely close during the early days of their friendship, the two established an “irreplaceable bond” after Jenner cut ties with former BFF Jordyn Woods in February 2019.
From then on, Richie and Jenner were often spotted going on lavish vacations together, attending exclusive events, and even hanging out inside the makeup mogul’s massive Hidden Hills mansion.
Though a few people recently speculated that Jenner and Richie were no longer close, insiders claim the two are “definitely still friends,” despite the model’s recent relationship drama.
“They have a lot of friends in common and they’ve always had fun together,” a source explained to E! News. “Scott isn’t going to stand in the way of their friendship. Kylie and Sofia have a long history and a bond. Whether or not Sofia is dating Scott, she will be friends with Kylie.
