Scott Disick and Sofia Richie are growing apart over their 15-year age difference? That’s what one of the tabloids is claiming. Gossip Cop looked into the story and we’ve learned it’s false.

The couple traveled to Las Vegas for Richie’s 21st birthday on August 24, but an article in the latest issue of OK! claims the celebration turned sour. “Sofia was dancing with her besties and having an amazing time until she looked around and saw Scott slumped over his phone,” an unnamed tipster tells the magazine. “She was so disappointed.”

The alleged source adds, “Sofia’s mature on her own, but the second she gets around her pals, she regresses,” while Disick “can’t stand all the shrieking and commotion.” The reality star purchased an Aston Martin for his girlfriend for her birthday, but the tabloid claims she wasn’t satisfied with the gift. “Sofia knows he spent a lot of money on her, but that doesn’t replace the attention she craves from him,” adds the suspicious source. “She wishes he’d let loose every once in a while with her friends, but he’s like an old man to them.”

None of this is remotely accurate. Not only did our source in Disick’s camp dismiss the story as nonsense, but the magazine’s own sister outlet, Star, claimed this week that Disick proposed to Richie on her birthday. That didn’t happen either, but it’s quite telling that two magazines owned by the same company are publishing such wildly different reports.

This is just a case of two sister publications trying to cover their bases by reporting two separate futures for the same couple. Should Disick and Richie ever get engaged or break up, either tabloid can claim it “got it right” while completely ignoring the incorrect article.

Meanwhile, OK!’s claim that Richie wasn’t happy with Disick’s gift doesn’t at all match up with model’s own words on the matter. Richie posted a picture of the car on her Instagram story, along with text awarding Disick the “Best BF Award.” That’s not quite something you’d post if you were disappointed with your partner’s gift, which was obviously a generous one.

Of course, this wouldn’t be the first time we’ve had to correct OK! for publishing an inaccurate story about the couple. Gossip Cop busted the magazine in April for falsely claiming Kourtney Kardashian, Disick’s ex, was “tearing apart” his relationship with Richie. The tabloid clearly doesn’t know anything about the reality star or his romance. We’ll continue to correct untrue stories about the couple as they emerge.
