Are Sofia Richie and Scott Disick at a "breaking point"? A new report claims their relationship is in jeopardy, and Kourtney Kardashian may be to blame. But Gossip Cop can reveal the truth.
"Is It All Over For Scott & Sofia?" Heat asks in a headline. The tabloid alleges Richie is "feeling vulnerable" as Disick "grows closer" to Kardashian, who recently split from Younes Bendjima. It's specifically claimed, "After Scott and Kourt were spotted having an intimate dinner... the relationship [with Sofia] is at a breaking point."
A so-called "source" is quoted as saying, "Sofia's freaking out. She's convinced that Scott wants to get Kourtney back." This untraceable tipster goes on to contend, "Sofia knows Kim and Khloe [Kardashian] would love for Kourtney and Scott to be together again — they see him as part of the family." And while Richie "feels it's important for Scott to have a good relationship with them for the kids' sake," it's claimed she "felt more secure when Kourtney was dating Younes."
"Sofia adores Scott, and she doesn't want to lose him, but her paranoia is pushing him away," contends the outlet's alleged tipster. It's not said, however, just how Richie is supposedly being paranoid or how Disick has been pushed away. Just a few days ago, Richie and Disick stepped out for a date night in Malibu. And as opposed to trying to get back together with Kardashian, Disick took Richie on a trip to Mexico for her birthday late last month.
Suspiciously, the vacation, which was widely documented by the media, isn't mentioned in the publication's article. The story also doesn't make clear that the "intimate dinner" Kardashian and Disick were "spotted" on was a group outing for Kylie Jenner's birthday. The way it's referenced by the tabloid suggests the exes and co-parents were seen sharing a private meal just the two of them. That's not the case. Furthermore, the "KUWTK" star isn't exactly single. Kardashian and Bendjima reunited for a dinner date earlier this week, indicating that things between them aren't completely finished. In other words, there is no reason for Richie to be concerned about Kardashian rekindling something with Disick.
Lastly, Gossip Cop must note that it appears this story was largely copied from OK!, which last week peddled a similar narrative about Richie and Disick being "on the rocks." But it's not just thematically the same. Some of the quotes look to be somewhat plagiarized. For example: "She's convinced that Scott is trying to win back Kourtney" versus "She's convinced that Scott wants to get Kourtney back," and "Sofia would be crushed if they break up, but her paranoia is just making things worse" versus "She doesn't want to lose him, but her paranoia is pushing him away." So it seems Heat is not just guilty of being wrong with its claims, but of stealing them, too.
Gossip Cop has determined this story is totally false.
