Why Fans Say Kourtney Kardashian Has No Room to Judge Scott Disick

Kourtney Kardashian and Scott Disick’s relationship has raised more than a few eyebrows over the years. The couple dated for many years and welcomed three children before ultimately splitting several years ago.

They have both moved on to date other people, but have remained close — too close, some fans say.

Some have even spoken out in criticism of Disick’s new relationship with Lionel Richie’s daughter, Sofia Richie, but Kardashian herself doesn’t seem to have a problem with it.

Read on to learn all about Disick and Kardashian’s relationship history, Disick’s romance with Richie, and why people think that Kardashian shouldn’t take any issue with the May-December love affair.

How long did Scott Disick and Kourtney Kardashian date?

Scott Disick and Kourtney Kardashian first met in 2006, at a house party thrown by Girls Gone Wild producer Joe Francis. They started dating not long after, and when Keeping Up with the Kardashians premiered on TV in 2007, Kardashian and Disick were an item.

The show featured a long-running plot point revolving around the couple, including a pregnancy scare and multiple arguments about Disick’s hard-partying ways.

Still, they stuck it out, ultimately welcoming three children together – Mason Dash Disick, Penelope Scotland Disick, and Reign Aston Disick. Throughout the entire course of their relationship, Disick and Kardashian suffered from various issues, including Disick’s battle with alcoholism and his depression following the death of both of his parents.

Shortly after the birth of their third child, Reign, in 2014, Disick and Kardashian broke up for good. They have remained firm fixtures in each other’s lives, however, with Disick continuing to appear on Keeping Up with the Kardashians and even vacationing with the family.

After their breakup, both Scott Disick and Kourtney Kardashian went on to pursue other romantic relationships. Kardashian enjoyed a rumored fling with Justin Bieber before dating a model named Younes Bendjima.

Scott Disick’s relationship, however, has earned the most scrutiny from both fans and the media. In early 2017, Disick started dating Sofia Richie. Many expected that the romance wouldn’t last, but Disick and Richie have defied the odds and are still together.

One thing that was a big point of contention when Disick and Richie started dating was their age difference — at the time, Disick was 34 and Richie was only 19. The fifteen-year age gap drew a lot of sneers from those who thought that Disick couldn’t possibly be serious about a woman so young, especially since he was a father of three.

In spite of the age gap between the father of her children and his new girlfriend, Kourtney Kardashian has been nothing but supportive of their romance. Richie has accompanied them on vacations and even been in episodes of Keeping Up with the Kardashians. Still, some fans believe that it is Kardashian’s duty to support Disick and Richie.

As some fans on Reddit pointed out, Kardashian herself dated someone who was quite a bit younger than her — so she has absolutely no place to judge Disick.

Kardashian’s romance with Bendjima lasted for months, and he is nearly 15 years younger than Kardashian. Some Reddit users also stated that Kardashian has a pattern of supposedly dating other much-younger men like Justin Bieber and Luca Sabbat, so the attraction to younger people doesn’t just fall on Disick.

Whatever the reason for Kardashian’s support of Disick and Richie, there’s no doubt that they all seem to be getting along very well. Stay tuned to Showbiz Cheat Sheet for all the latest Kardashian family news!
