Sofia Richie and Scott Disick Split: Is Kourtney Kardashian’s Mistreatment of Her Ex’s New Girlfriend to Blame?

It’s officially over for Scott Disick and Sofia Richie.

According to multiple sources and outlets, the pair have broken up after dating for nearly three years, with insiders claiming the relationship “ran its course.” While many might have seen this coming, none of us were expecting Kourtney Kardashian’s name to get thrown in the mix. But much to our surprise, she reportedly played a factor in Disick and Richie’s romance coming to an end.

Richie recently sparked breakup rumors

After spending close to three years together, we were convinced Disick and Richie’s relationship was going to last forever. However, things aren’t always as they seem because the pair recently called it quits.

The split came after Disick checked himself in and out of a Colorado rehab facility where he sought treatment to cope with the death of his parents. It also comes after Richie sparked breakup rumors when she was spotted out with a mystery man in Malibu.

Though the model’s recent outing had many convinced she and Disick were over, separate sources seemingly debunked this rumor by claiming the pair were still together and were just spending time apart so that the reality star could focus on his mental health.

“[Richie] has been giving Scott space to figure out his next steps, but has consistently been supporting him,” an insider previously told E! News. “Their relationship has been 3 years of ups and downs, but she isn’t leaving him to the dust. She’s very loyal to Scott.”

However, it’s recently been confirmed that the pair decided to go their separate ways amid the Keeping Up with the Kardashians’star rehab stint so they could both focus on themselves.

“Sofia thinks Scott has a lot on his plate right now and thinks it’s best for them to be apart so he can focus on himself,” a separate recently source told E!. “She is only looking out for him and his best interest and it was primarily her decision for them to split. Sofia has been spending time with her family and has taken majority of her stuff out of Scott’s house.”

Though they are “technically” broken up, Disick and Richie still care for each other and will likely reconcile after doing their own things for a while.

Did Kardashian cause the pair’s split?

Although Disick’s “emotional issues” and “past traumas” reportedly contributed to his split from Richie, it turns out that those aren’t the only things that factored into the breakup.

According to Page Six, the Lord’s close relationship with his ex-girlfriend, Kourtney Kardashian, played a part in his romance with the model coming to an end.

“Kourtney didn’t make it easy for [Sofia], and you can only tolerate that kind of treatment for so long,” a source told the outlet.

Those who have been following the Kardashians for a while now know that the Poosh founder and Richie didn’t get off to a great start.

When Disick began dating the model in 2017, Kourt wasn’t the biggest fan of their relationship due to the pair’s 15-year age difference. However, the reality star eventually warmed up to Richie and started making an effort to get to know her better.

Sources previously claimed Kardashian was bullying Richie

Though it appeared as though Richie and Kardashian were on pretty good terms with each other, it was previously rumored that the reality star has been disrespecting the model privately.

According to Radar Online, Richie has been victimized by Kardashian in the past and recently reached her breaking point.

“Sofia has literally spent years biting her lip and dealing with all of Kourt’s attitude, but now she’s totally done with it,” an insider dished. “She’s taking the initiative and making it known that she won’t be bullied or talked down to anymore.”

While the source didn’t give any further details on Kardashian’s alleged treatment toward Richie, it sure sounds like things were pretty tense between the women.

Though it seems as though Kardashian finally got the best of Richie, hopefully, the reality star’s past treatment toward her doesn’t stop the model from rekindling her relationship with Disick sometime in the future.
