Are Scott Disick and Sofia Richie really being "torn apart" by Kourtney Kardashian? That's the story in one of this week's tabloids. Gossip Cop looked into the situation and we can set the record straight.
Earlier this month, Kardashian took a trip to Finland with her three kids, and invited her ex and his girlfriend to come along. According to OK!, tensions mounted during the getaway. An alleged insider tells the magazine, "Scott and Sofia were having troubles going into this, and it came to a head while they were overseas. They got into an ugly fight."
The supposed source goes on to say that Richie "felt like a third wheel" during the vacation as her boyfriend spent most of the time "flirting and fawning all over Kourtney." The questionable tipster adds, "Kourtney's still totally attracted to Scott. The fact that he's cleaned up his act and lays on the charm when they're together is a huge turn-on."
The seemingly phony insider further contends that Richie "lashed out" at her boyfriend and "told him she's done being humiliated." Meanwhile, Kardashian is now "up for the challenge of luring him away" from the model, says the so-called "source."
None of this is remotely accurate. Gossip Cop checked in with a source close to Richie, who wasn't able to speak on the record, but assures us the magazine's report is fabricated. People magazine, a much more reliable source for celebrity news than OK!, also noted that Disick, Richie and Kardashian all "had a great time" during their joint vacation. This also wasn't the first time the model has taken a trip with the ex-couple and their kids. In December, the group traveled to Cabo San Lucas, Mexico together.
It's also worth noting, Kardashian has said several times on "Keeping Up with the Kardashians" that she and Disick aren't getting back together, but they remain on good terms for their kids. Meanwhile, Disick and Richie took their own trip to Santa Barbara directly after going to Finland with his ex. A few days later, Richie and Kardashian were spotted at a Beverly Hills spa together, unaccompanied by Disick. It's clear the reality star and the model get along quite well with each other.
Unfortunately, this isn't the first time OK! has attempted to create a fake love triangle between the exes and the model. Last August, Gossip Cop called out the magazine for falsely claiming Disick and Richie were "on the rocks" because she was convinced he was trying to win back Kardashian. The premise wasn't true then and it's no more accurate now.
Gossip Cop has determined this story is totally false.
