The last episode of Keeping Up With The Kardashians was all about the romantic relationship between Scott Disick, 34, and the daughter of the music legend Lionel Richie, Sofia Richie.
The two of them have officially confirmed that they were dating near the end of last year, but rumors about their involvement had started to spread long before that.
However, during an episode of the TV series on Sunday, Scott finally admitted that he was trying to stay away from the spotlight with his new romantic interest because he did not want to hurt his ex-partner, Kourtney Kardashian.
The former couple had a long-lasting relationship for many years, and the two of them share three children together — Mason, Penelope, and Reign.
Scott was also asked about the state of his current love life by Kourtney’s mother, Kris Jenner. Scott was quite uncomfortable discussing such personal matters with her at first, but he later admitted that Kris’ attention towards him touched him.
The subject of the significant age difference between Scott and Sofia was also brought up. Disick clarified that Kris was actually younger at 17 when she started dating Robert Kardashian than Sofia (19) is now.
Later on during the episode, a conversation between Kim Kardashian and Kris about Scott and Sofia could also be heard.
Kim’s reaction to the matter was that she was not bothered by the fact that Scott is dating other girls as long as he was not regretting Kourtney who has moved on with Younes Bendjima.
Kim also said she was trying not to judge anyone and decided that the new relationship was a good thing.
Despite the positive reactions from members of the Kardashian/Jenner clan, sources close to Kourtney say that she still believes that Sofia is too young to be with her baby daddy.
At 38, the mother of three is dating a 24-year-old model.
