Is Kendall Jenner in love with Scott Disick?! That’s the claim that’s coming from one of the tabloids. Gossip Cop, however, can bust the wild allegation.
In late January and early February, Jenner was accused of throwing shade at Sofia Richie, Disick’s girlfriend, on Instagram. Now NW is blaring in a headline, “Why She Really Hates Sofia: Kendall’s In Love With Scott!” Noting that the model has “always been notoriously private about her love life,” the gossip magazine alleges there’s “one secret in particular that she’s trying to keep hush-hush.”
“She’s had feelings for Scott for years,” a so-called “insider” is quoted as saying. Seemingly referring to Disick being in Jenner’s life since she was barely a teen, this supposed source claims to the outlet, “Back then it was an innocent crush.” But now it’s alleged, “She can’t help it. She just really likes him.” And it’s because of those purported feelings that Jenner is said to be “jealous” of Richie.
The publication contends Jenner was “lashing out” on Instagram “because she feels if Scott wants to date a pretty young thing then it should be her.” It’s further claimed that the “KUWTK” star “thought she’d finally get her shot” when half-sister Kourtney Kardashian split from Disick in 2015. On top of that, the tabloid also alleges her “long-held flame” for him “could be the reason she’s never had a lasting long-term relationship.” Asserts the tipster, “This is why she’s never had a proper relationship with anyone else — her heart belongs to Scott.”
The magazine goes on to suggest that Jenner may “finally get her chance” with Disick because “Scott and Sofia’s romance could be going south.” Actually, Richie posted an Instagram tribute to her “babe” just days ago for Valentine’s Day. Regardless, though, Jenner has never had any intention of pursuing a relationship with Disick, her sister’s former partner.
This idea that she’s “in love” with him is a recycled storyline that tabloids have been shamelessly peddling for years. In fact, the outlet even references a 2015 Star cover story that ridiculously claimed, “19-Year-Old Kendall Sleeping with Scott!” Gossip Cop rightly busted it at the time, and Jenner, Disick, Kardashian and even Khloe Kardashian actually mocked the lies on Twitter.
But now that three-year-old debunked report is being used by NW to wonder if Jenner and Disick have ever had a “secret affair.” Of course, if they had, that would go against this current narrative about her hopelessly crushing on him for years and never getting a shot with him. Clearly consistency and logic were not priorities when the publication concocted this article.
Indeed, it makes little sense to assert at the beginning of the story that Jenner is “private about her love life,” and then claim an “insider” is sharing her personal feelings with the gossip media. The only reason this tale was manufactured was because of Jenner’s supposed shade against Richie, even though she never confirmed she was intending to diss Disick’s girlfriend. Meanwhile, Gossip Cop is told by Jenner’s camp that the tabloid’s story is simply “laughable.”
Gossip Cop has determined this story is totally false.
