Media has known that Scott Disick has been dating 19-year-old
Sofia Richie since September, but the relationship popped up on
Keeping Up With the Kardashians for the first time on
tonight’s episode. Apparently, it became more obvious to Kris
Jenner and Kim Kardashian during New York Fashion Week, and the
mother-daughter power duo had plenty to say about
Scott’s new romance.
“I don’t think it’s any secret that’s Scott’s been dating,”
Kris said to Kim. “But he drops little hints here and there
that make me think it’s might be a little more serious than I

In response, Kim gave the burgeoning relationship her seal of
approval: “Whatever makes him happy — I don’t judge, I don’t
care. I think it’s a good thing. I just hope that he’s making
good choices and having fun and that nothing is getting crazy.
Scott has been so good in New York. I mean, it’s not like we
can keep tabs on him forever. He’s got to live his life.
Kourtney’s moved on, Scott’s eventually going to move on. If it
ends up turning into something, great.”
Totally fair! And pretty much the healthiest take that you
could imagine Kim having when discussing her sister’s ex.
What was a bit more awkward, however, was when the crew
returned to L.A., and Kris confronted Scott about the
relationship, seemingly asking when he might bring Sofia around
the rest of the family. Scott opted to remain private about his
new girlfriend — out of respect for Kourtney.
“For me, to see that Kris is invested in my life means the
world to me. Because she’s got so many other kids and so many
other things going on, so the fact that she actually worries,
loves and cares about me is probably one of the best feelings I
have,” Scott explained on the show. “Truthfully, as much as I’d
like to be honest with her and tell her how I’m how I’m really
feeling, I also do want to respect Kourtney and her feelings.
Maybe down the line. but right now, my biggest thing is just
being respectful of everybody.”

& Wants Kourtney Kardashian Back
Though Scott hasn’t always been the most grounded of the
KarJenner crew, and Kourtney had to deal with quite the roller
coaster of a relationship with him, you gotta hand it to him
this time around. Sounds like he was being quite thoughtful and
empathetic by opting to stay tight-lipped in that moment.
And in the wake of this episode being shot, he’s appeared to
keep his relationship with Sofia out of the spotlight. Now
perhaps we know the upstanding reason why. The dad of three
definitely deserves props for that!
