Scott Disick and his 21-year-old model girlfriend Sofia Richie are back together, Us Weekly reports a fact that, according to E!'s source at the time of their May breakup, was more or less inevitable. Us was told by a source yesterday that “they are hanging out again romantically. It’s back on.”
That source added, “They weren’t getting along before hence the split, and they worked on having a life separate from each other." That life didn't appeal to them as much as one spent together, so here they are, dating again.
E!'s source said in May that "it's very likely they will reconcile" in the near future because their three-year relationship has been on-off.
Disick and Richie were first seen out together during the Fourth of July. Then over the weekend, Richie stoked reconciliation rumors by posting a photo of herself at Disick's house. Hours later, Disick's other ex-girlfriend (and the mother of his three children) Kourtney Kardashian posted an Instagram Story asking "why do we make excuses for bad behavior in the relationships?" adding a suggestive "hmmmmm" to the post, which linked out to an article on the topic.
People were told by a source that Richie wasn't exactly happy about the Disick-Kardashian dating rumors then. "It was a serious relationship, not some fling, and she was there for Scott through some tough times," the outlet's source said at the end of June. "It hurts to see all the speculation about Scott and Kourtney, but she is so young and gets so much attention. She'll be totally fine."
A source told Page Six that Disick's relationship with Kardashian was a factor in his and Richie's May split. “Kourtney didn’t make it easy for her, and you can only tolerate that kind of treatment for so long," Page Six's source said.
Us Weekly was told two days after Richie and Disick's breakup news went public that Disick still had feelings for Kardashian. “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. “It’s been an ongoing thing. It just became more apparent that his family was more of a priority than she was, and his family would be his main priority over anything and anyone.”
