Scott Disick and Sofia Richie are done, and somewhere Kourtney Kardashian is mumbling under her breath, “I told you so.” It seems the whole “once a cheater” adage has a photo of Disick right next to it, because multiple reports are saying the reality star cheated on Richie with one woman, then was spotted getting cozy with another.
Sofia found out about Scott’s dalliance “after their [recent] trip to St. Barts and it caused huge problems in their relationship,” a source told Us Weekly. “He went to Wyoming because of it and was photographed with another girl and that was the icing on the cake for her to break up with him.”
The insider confirmed the couple “split up” and that after Sofia learned of Scott’s unfaithfulness (the first one, in Miami), she told her father, Lionel Richie. Depending on how you look at it, it was either a good or bad thing. Because Lionel, not some random girl, is the real reason Scott and Sofia will never ever get back together.
Lionel, with whom Sofia is “extremely close,” threatened to “cut her off and write her out of his will if she continues her relationship with Scott as he thinks he’s extremely toxic for her.”
The singer also “forbids them reconnecting and won’t continue to support their relationship.”
So Lionel basically responded the way any dad would. And it’s a blessing in disguise, really — both for Lionel and Sofia. She might have feelings for Scott, she might even love him, but a girl can only take so much. Just ask Kourtney.
The source added that Disick still has feelings for Richie but “he knows there’s not much that he can do. Sofia is upset but is leaning towards sticking with her family and Lionel because she realizes the severity of it.”
Really, though, there is something Scott could do; he could simply be a better man and, you know, NOT CHEAT. But if he couldn’t be faithful to the mother of his three kids, Sofia didn’t stand a chance.
