Fans Who Hated Scott Disick and Sofia Richie Together At First Now Think They’re Good For Each Other

Scott Disick has become famous for his past relationship with Kourtney Kardashian. Even though they split for good years ago, the pair are still actively co-parenting, and Disick has an ongoing role in Keeping Up with the Kardashians. This has left Disick in an interesting position when it comes to fan attention. While most of the focus is still through the lens of the Kardashians, Disick has moved on to other relationships — and new struggles. 

In particular, many who watched Disick and Kardashian’s relationship fall apart have been highly critical of his relationship with Sofia Richie. Now, however, some are starting to change their tune. Could Richie actually be good for Disick?

Kourtney Kardashian and Scott Disick had a tumultuous end 

Things were never exactly smooth between Kardashian and Disick. Their relationship was best described as on-again, off-again from the very beginning. They even split early on when Kardashian suspected Disick of cheating, but they reunited shortly after and announced that Kardashian was pregnant. Their growing family became a major plot point on Keeping Up with the Kardashians, and viewers got to see baby Mason grow up on the show. This left fans deeply invested in the future between Kardashian and Disick. 

Over the next few years, Disick’s drinking problem would become apparent. Kardashian and Disick were struggling, but they went on to have two more children. By 2015, they had officially called it quits, but their roles as parents left them closely connected. The frequent on-screen portrayals of their co-parenting and efforts to figure out their new normal left many fans hoping for a reunion. 

Scott Disick began dating Sofia Richie 

According to Seventeen, Disick’s relationship with Richie started sometime in 2017. By September of 2017, rumors about the pair were in full force. This is when he posted some PDA-filled photographs that definitely caused a buzz. Plenty of people were critical of the relationship as soon as it was confirmed. With Disick’s history of substance abuse and the 15-year age gap between them, many were worried about where it was heading. Those worried included Richie’s famous father, Lionel Richie. 

Despite the critics, the pair continued to build their relationship. In February 2018, Disick confirmed his relationship on Keeping Up with the Kardashians after being grilled by Kris Jenner. They weathered several rumors of breaking up and some reports of Disick getting cozy with other women. By the end of 2018, Richie and Disick were vacationing alongside Kardashian and they appeared like one big happy family making the complicated connections work. 

This smooth sailing was not to last. Kardashian made comments about Disick being her “soul mate” and wanting to have another child with him. Richie, quickly getting tangled in the love triangle, announced she’d be stepping away from Keeping Up with the Kardashians amidst the drama. Kardashian also ended up stepping back from the show. It appears that Disick and Richie’s relationship once again survived the turmoil.

When Disick and Richie first started dating, many assumed it would not last. Between Disick’s past with alcohol and infidelity, Kardashian’s complicated connection to him, and Richie’s own youth, it seemed like a recipe for disaster. Now, some people have changed their minds. The pair has made it through several years of ups and downs, and many are now seeing that they might be good for each other.

 This is especially true now that rumors are swirling that Disick once again checked into rehab. The most recent reports say he was there not for substance abuse, but to deal with some grief and trauma over the loss of his parents. Whatever the case, fans now believe that Richie could be a powerful support in his life. 

“I think she’s been good for him,” one fan wrote on Reddit. “I’ll admit I had to eat my words [cause] I thought it was gross on day 1 but they seem good together from the little I’ve seen.” This seems to be a popular shift in opinion. The pair defied expectations and stayed together, and now fans are coming around to the idea.
