Scott Disick is not going around saying Sofia Richie is better with his kids than their own mother, Kourtney Kardashian, contrary to an outrageous report. Gossip Cop can bust the made-up and untrue story. Disick has no problem with Kardashian’s very capable parenting abilities and he would never bad-mouth her in that way.
But as Gossip Cop has reported, Disick and Richie are currently on vacation with the children in Mexico, and HollywoodLife has been using their trip to try to stir up drama with Kardashian. After making-up a demonstrably wrong story about Kardashian being against Disick and Richie taking the kids away, the site is now claiming to have “exclusive details” on how Disick is “using their bond to taunt” his ex. A so-called “source” even alleges the “whole point” of the trip was to upset Kardashian, claiming he’s now “taunting Kourtney with pictures of Sofia and the kids bonding.”
“But what’s even more twisted,” contends the site’s supposed snitch, “is that he’s been telling their mutual friends that Sofia is better with the kids than Kourtney is.” The alleged tipster further maintains Disick is saying their children also “like Sofia more than” their own mom, knowing “it’s going to get straight back to Kourtney and mess with her head.” But if the whole point is for the comments to get back to Kardashian, why is HollywoodLies, as it’s nicknamed, hiding behind an unidentifiable and untraceable “source”? One would think Disick would want to make such comments publicly on the record if the goal was really to “taunt” her.
As for the contention that Disick is trying to upset Kardashian with photos of Richie “bonding” with their kids, no such pictures have actually surfaced. The Daily Mail posted intrusive paparazzi photos from Richie and Disick’s vacation, but none of the snapshots show her actually interacting with the children. Regardless, Kardashian wouldn’t have a problem with them “bonding,” anyway. In this People story from more than a month ago, it was specifically noted that because Richie “spends a lot of time at Scott’s,” Kardashian “allowed her to meet the kids” and they had gotten together a “few times” already. There’s no dispute.
Additionally, the claims that the children “like Sofia more than Kourtney” blatantly contradict an article the website ran in January, in which it was claimed Disick’s kids didn’t like Richie at all. Far from “bonding,” that story actually alleged she was usually “ignoring them,” to the point where Disick was now leaving the model out of their visits and “begg[ing] Kourtney to speak to the kids to try and fix the situation.” It not only makes little sense to now essentially contend the opposite, but the inconsistencies prove the outlet doesn’t know what it’s talking about and makes it up as it goes along.
Lastly, there is no evidence that Disick has ever quibbled with Kardashian’s parenting in the past. And given that Disick and Kardashian don’t have a formal custody arrangement, it is illogical to claim he would want to risk losing visits with the kids by angering her. As the primary caregiver, she’s the one that holds the cards in their co-parenting dynamic, not him. Gossip Cop is also told by a source close to the situation, who wasn’t at liberty to comment on the record, that Disick has no interest in jeopardizing his relationship with the children, and would never speak ill of the mother of his kids, someone whom he still loves deeply.
Gossip Cop has determined this story is totally false.
