Are Scott Disick and Sofia Richie headed for a split because the model wants to settle down and have kids but he's refusing? That's the claim in one of this week's tabloids. Gossip Cop looked into the situation, and we can set the record straight.
"Scott & Sofia: Trouble In Paradise" reads a headline in the latest issue of Star. The accompanying article says the 35-year-old reality star, who shares three young children with Kourtney Kardashian, is on a different page than the 20-year-old model when it comes to starting a family. The unreliable outlet further maintains that the two are "hanging by a thread" as a result.
"He doesn't want any more kids, and it's dawning on Sofia that as much as she loves him, she can't change him," says a supposed source, who also contends that Disick "is just looking for someone to have fun with." The alleged insider goes on to say "the spark is gone" between the couple, who've been dating for around a year and a half.
Gossip Cop, however, checked in with a source close to the situation, who tells us the magazine's report is fabricated. Disick and Richie simply haven't been at odds over having kids. There's also plenty of evidence indicating the couple's relationship is going strong. Just last week, for example, Disick and Richie enjoyed a beach getaway to Santa Barbara together.
Shortly before the trip, Disick and Richie traveled to Finland with Kardashian for spring break. Disick's three kids with his ex also came along on the joint vacation. People magazine noted that the entire group "had a great time" during their getaway. If Disick and his girlfriend were truly headed for a breakup, it's highly unlikely he'd be inviting her on a vacation with his ex and their children.
Additionally, the reality star and the model attended Kardashian's 40th birthday party this past Thursday. Earlier in the week, Disick and Richie were spotted grabbing frozen yogurt in Los Angeles. Simply put, the happy couple has been spending a whole lot of quality time together over the past few weeks alone.
Unfortunately, we're not surprised by the magazine's bogus report. Gossip Cop busted Star a few months ago for making up an absurd story claiming Disick was in a secret romance with Khloe Kardashian. Of course, the reality star never cheated on his girlfriend with his ex's sister. This latest article is more fiction from the frequently discredited outlet.
Gossip Cop has determined this story is totally false.
