Over the weekend, Disick, 34, and Richie, 19, went public with their romance during a getaway to Miami. The couple kissed and hugged on social media — this generation’s version of going steady — and celebrated something with a weird “congratulations” cake.
“While things initially seemed supercasual, it sounds like they are getting a bit more serious,” one source close to the new-couple tells Yahoo. “They are having a lot of fun together, but the social media stuff is a big step.”
If you’re scratching your head, you’re not the only one. Here’s what we know about Hollywood’s new couple.
The players: Richie is a model and currently one of fashion’s “it girls.” She’s the youngest daughter of Lionel Richie and sister of Nicole Richie. This isn’t the teenager’s first dose of paparazzi mayhem. Sofia dated Justin Bieber in the summer of 2016 and was at the center of his online social media feud with ex-girlfriend Selena Gomez.
It appears Justin and Scott have the same taste in women (cough, Kourtney Kardashian).
Disick is the Keeping Up With the Kardashians bad boy, who has three kids with Kardashian, 38. The reality stars split in 2015 after Disick’s partying became too much, but he tried to get her back in the months that followed. Once Kourtney moved on with 24-year-old model Younes Bendjima, Disick went on a party and womanizing bender in Cannes, France, where he was first linked with Sofia.
Their history: Rumors that something was up with Scott and Sofia first surfaced in May when they were photographed looking cozy onboard a yacht in Cannes. Sofia was one of the many women Disick was pictured with during his bender. He initially brought 19-year-old Bella Thorne along on the trip before ditching her for a bevy of other ladies, including Richie.
At the time, Richie denied anything was going on, tweeting, “Just so everyone can get their panties out of their asses, Scott and I are just homies.”
They were “homies” who liked to spend a lot of time together. Over the summer, Sofia and Scott were photographed hanging out (and FaceTiming) from Las Vegas to Malibu before dating rumors kicked into overdrive earlier this month.
They’re official: Scott and Sofia’s relationship status has changed. Disick posted a photo of himself hugging Richie on his Instagram story over the weekend. The model posted a similar shot. The couple also received some sort of dessert with “Congratulations Scott & Sophia” written on the plate (her name was misspelled). While we have no idea what that means, they were clearly into it, as a friend Snapchatted a shot of Scott and Sofia kissing during their night out.
The reactions: So… how are the Kardashian-Jenners reacting to Scott’s new (maybe) love? An insider close to Kourtney tells us she is “unfazed.”
“She doubts it will be anything serious… another day, another 19-year-old,” says the source. “As long as he is happy and healthy for the sake of the kids, she doesn’t care who he dates.”
Our insider also admits the famous family finds it “a little weird,” given the Richies’ close ties to the Kardashians and that she’s Kylie’s age. However, no one is surprised.
The bottom line: Is this for real? Doubtful. We’re filing this under “fall fling,” but it remains to be seen.
