Did Bella Thorne and Scott Disick Really Date?

Before Scott Disick settled down with Sophie Richie, there were rumors that he was seeing actress, Bella Thorne. The couple even made a trip to Cannes together.

So were they ever actually an item, or was it one big tabloid flop? It turns out, the answer is a little more complicated than that.

Scott Disick took Bella Thorne to Cannes

Thorne and Disick traveled in the same social circles for a while before they were linked. Disick’s ex-sister-in-law, Kylie Jenner, is friends with Thorne, close enough to post pictures on Twitter together, so it’s possible Disick ran into Throne through Jenner. 

According to Complex, Thorne met Disick when he showed up at a house party she had thrown. However they ran into each other, we know they became good friends, because Disick brought Thorne with him on a trip to Cannes in 2017. 

They were photographed together at the airport, and then again sunbathing during their vacation. Thorne, who wore an animal print bikini top and pale pink bottoms, was pictured getting close and “cuddly” with Disick at a private villa. A source told People that the couple were “having fun together- partying and acting very flirty.” 

Scott Disick was trying to make Kourtney Kardashian jealous

A few weeks after the Cannes trips, the world received a little more insight into what might have been going on during an episode of Keeping Up With the Kardashians.

The Kardashians were also in Cannes, when Disick allgedly decided to follow them there with Thorne. Although Disick’s ex, Kourtney Kardashian was not in the scene, the sisters who were discussing it on camera, were not impressed with the situation.

According to Kendall Jenner, who said she’d recently spoken with Disick about Thorne, he was only doing it to make Kourtney jealous. 

Khloe Kardashian accused Disick of trying to one-up Kourtney in “picture wars” through the media. “So if a picture of you comes out with your friend, then the other one tries to one-up you,” Khloe said. “To me I feel like I’m watching a ping pong match.”

Unlike the media, the Kardashians were not convinced that Disick had moved on with Thorne. In their opinion, he only showed up in Cannes with Thorne to make Kourtney mad. 

Were Disick and Thorne ever an item?

After they returned from the trip, Thorne was asked several times about her relationship with Disick, and she always insisted they were just friends. In fact, Thorne said she left the trip early because she wasn’t able to keep up with Disick’s partying.

“Scott is really nice, sweet, charming,” Thorne told Complex. “I don’t drink and he drinks a lot. And it just ended up… I just wasn’t down. I was like, ‘I gotta leave.'”

Thorne hopped on a plane only a day and a half after arriving in Cannes. She tweeted at the airport, “Yo this #cannes fancy life isn’t for me,” and then headed home. 

When Thorne arrived back in Los Angeles, everyone wanted to know what was going on between her and Disick. To clear things up, Thorne did an interview on The Jenny McCarthy Show. She said that she was friends with Disick, but they were never together “sexually.”

Shortly after this all went down, Disick began seeing Sophia Richie. They’re still together today, and thinking about tying the knot. Thorne was in an open relationship for a while with both YouTuber Tana Mongeau and rapper Mod Sun, but has since broken that off. Now she has a new man in her life, Benjamin Mascolo.
