Kourtney Kardashian is trying to keep Scott Disick and Sofia Richie from getting engaged? That's the nonsensical rumor in one tabloid this week. Gossip Cop found it to be false.
According to Heat, Kardashian is furious about her ex's current relationship. Disick and Richie were seen enjoying each other's company while on vacation last week, and with "rumors mounting" that the two are planning to get engaged soon, the outlet's sources say that Kardashian is taking steps to prevent the possible engagement. "Kourtney is doing her best to make this not happen. She swears it's in Scott's best interests and not because she's still in love with him, but nobody's buying it," the tabloid's "insider" says.
"Kourt's been panicking about this relationship since the beginning, saying it'll end in tears and Sofia's too young," the tipster continues. "She's taken Scott aside and begged him to think twice before putting a ring on this girl's finger, but he's told her to back off and stop being bitter." Heat then refers back to its previous "reporting" about Kardashian and Disick "secretly hooking up" the entire time he's dated Richie — one of several bogus rumors about Kardashian's involvement in Disick and Richie's relationship that Gossip Cop has specifically debunked.
"It doesn't take a genius to figure out that Kourtney still has feelings for Scott," the source claims, "and everyone knows she's still half-hoping they might find a way of getting back together down the line. But more than anything, she shudders at the idea that he could get married to someone who isn't her, even if they don't get back together themselves."
The biggest complication, the insider says, is the fact that Kardashian is wary of Richie's relationship with the three kids she shares with Disick. "Kourt hates the idea of them forging a close bond with Sofia if she becomes their stepmum, and she's making it as difficult as possible for Scott to do this in a smooth way. If there's anything she can do to block the proposal, she'll do it."
First off all, the tabloid is mostly just rehashing old rumors about the three stars. As Gossip Cop has previously reported, the three are all on great terms and have gone on multiple vacations together. Disick and Kardashian successfully co-parent their three kids, and there hasn't been a single sign of discord from any of the involved parties. We've even busted several made-up stories specifically about Richie's relationship with Kardashian and Disick's children.
Second, Heat is eager to bring up its old "reporting" about the two exes hooking up, but it completely ignores its story from August 2018 about Disick and Kardashian rekindling their relationship and its September 2018 claim about Disick and Richie reaching their "breaking point" and calling it quits. The tabloid is simply ignoring its past history of being incorrect about the celebrity relationship. The vast majority of the publication's so-called "reporting" about the Kardashian-Disick-Richie relationship is just baseless repeating of other rumors about the stars, and this latest piece is no exception.
Gossip Cop has determined this story is totally false.
