Okay, I realize I am going to sound extremely soft when I say this—and maybe I am—but Page Six‘s new report that Scott Disick and Sofia Richie broke up is actually shocking me. I mean, a little—it hasn’t like, upended my world view or anything. Not because I thought Scott and Sofia were perfect together (or even because I knew a single thing about them as a couple), but actually the opposite. They seemed so mismatched (and yes, I’m mostly talking about the age gap) that if they managed to stay together for three years, I figured they were in it for the long haul. But, at least according to sources who’ve spoken to Page Six and Us Weekly, this time Scott and Sofia are done. (Bad week for Sofias, amiright?)
Earlier this month, Page Six reported that Scott had checked into rehab to “work on his past traumas”, denying any drug or alcohol abuse. However, he checked himself out of the rehab and returned home after, obviously, it got leaked the the media that he was there. And I know I sound like that time Karen Smith told everyone when Gretchen got diarrhea in Barnes & Noble, but the reason I’m bringing it up now is because sources told Page Six that Scott’s traumas contributed to the split, saying, “Scott had gone back to his old ways and Sofia got fed up.”
The source also said that Scott and Kourtney’s relationship weighed on Sofia, adding, “Kourtney didn’t make it easy for her.” Yeah, I’d imagine it would be tough to be in a relationship with a guy when the entire world is rooting for him to get back with his ex and the mother of his children. Over Memorial Day Weekend, Scott celebrated his birthday with Kourtney and the kids in Utah, with Sofia nowhere in sight. UsWeekly claimed they were on a break at the time, so it looks like the break just became permanent.
And to add yet another blow, apparently Scott and Sofia weren’t quarantining together, which took a toll as well. Though I can’t exactly blame Scott for not wanting to quarantine with a 21-year-old; she’d probably want to spend all their time making TikTok dances.
I would normally take this time to insert some boiler plate “I feel bad for , but they’ll be fine”, but honestly, I’ll save my sympathies for some other time. Sofia is 21, I’m sure she will have plenty more relationships, and Scott is a grown-ass man who is almost a decade older than me and also, I’m sure, fine. If I could give Sofia some advice, even though she’s definitely never reading this because she’s a celebrity and I’m just a rando with an internet connection, it would be this: Pour yourself a glass of wine now that you can legally drink it, go make fun of Scott’s insane quotes on Keeping Up With The Kardashians, you’ll get through it.

It’s been a very busy month for the Kardashian Krew (I say as if Kris Jenner doesn’t make damn well sure it wouldn’t be any other way). But while we were all out here paying attention to Kanye’s Sunday service or Kim becoming the next Elle Woods or even Khloe’s latest photo edit abomination, we missed a very big moment for another member of the fam: Scott Disick. I’ll be honest, I haven’t been paying much attention to The Lord lately. It’s like ever since he adopted Sofia Richie as an honorary fourth Disick child, he’s been re-focusing his priorities. Now he’s more of a family man, and less of a drunken f*ckup shoving $100 bills down innocent waiters’ throats. Boooooo. But we’re about to see a lot more from our boy Scottie because, this just in, he has a new real estate reality show coming to E! called Flip it Like Disick. Hold on to your empire, Chip and Joanna, you’ve got some real competition now!
According to E! News, the show is like Fixer Upper but for the stars, and it will showcase Scott Disick’s “passion for luxury real estate and house flipping.” That’s right, the man who once said “I’m a big star, I don’t need to be dealing with you peasants” is essentially going to take on the role of the help and fix up his famous friends’ houses. K.
And for those of you who thought Scott Disick’s talents were more in the realm of riding on the coattails of his ex-girlfriend’s fame and drinking on private planes than flipping houses, then
you’re not wrong shame on you! Apparently The Lord has been dabbling in property development for years. And let’s not forget his brief stint as a handy man on KUWTK after Kourtney asked for more romance in their sex life, so Scott pretended to be Noah from The Notebook and almost destroyed the roof of her house.
Do we think they’ll include this scene in the series trailer?
But of course, Scott won’t be taking on this new business venture alone. He’s assembled a crack team to help him flip the homes of Kris’s least favorite famous friends. In addition to
a man who refers to himself as the second coming of Jesus Christ Scott, the Flip It Like Disick team will also consist of Scott’s BFF Benny Luciano, contractor Miki Moor, veteran assistant Lindsay Diamond, and former pop singer-turned-interior designer Willa Ford. I’m going to save you all the Google search and let you know that none of these people are of any importance, save for Willa Ford, whose iconic song “I Wanna Be Bad” was featured in the Amanda Bynes classic What A Girl Wants, and was also the song 10-year-old me sang in the shower every damn day, much to my mother’s growing horror. This is the comeback we need in 2019. Just saying.
Not only will Scott and his team be taking on celebrity projects, but I’m told they’ll also be taking on the highly classified and v intense job of re-decorating his children’s playhouse! Tbh I love where he sets his bar. I mean, why make the stakes high for your first job when you can make the stakes somewhere around just being judged by children—and ones who are genetically obligated to praise you no less! I applaud your shamelessness, Scott. Bravo.
While, on the one hand, I’m happy Scott will finally be getting out of the Kardashian-Jenner shadow, this sudden career move does make me wonder if Scott and Kourtney have somehow fallen on hard times? Do we think, like, they actually need the money from this show or something? I, mean, Kourt only makes a casual $35 million a year, and Scott makes whatever ends up in the tip jar after his club promotions. And we all know Poosh was a real Hail Mary for her to begin with! Scott, Kourt, anything you want to tell us??
All jokes aside, I’m thrilled we’ll be seeing more from the Lord Scott Disick. The memes I’ve been sending in my group chat were getting a little bit stale anyways. Flip It Like Disick will premiere sometime this summer, and will consist of 8 hour-long episodes, so feel free to mark your calendars, like, right f*cking now.

We’ve always felt a deep connection with Scott Disick. From the days when he was the misunderstood playboy of the Kardashian family to now, when he’s our Lord and savior, we just want what’s best for him. It seemed like his final breakup with Kourtney hit him hard, but this year he’s been aggressively back on the dating scene with some much younger women. RIP Bella Thorne.
His current teenage flame is model Sofia Richie, daughter of Lionel and sister of Nicole, and it’s about time we figure out how serious things are. Just like they taught us in college, the best source of peer-reviewed research is Instagram stalking, so here we go.
Since October 2nd, Sofia has posted four photos of her and Scott together. By our calculations, that’s more than one photo per week, which is officially a lot. Sofia is very into Scott. Notably, three of the photos were taken in Venice, where most couples would dream of going on a lavish honeymoon, not a quick weekend while still getting to know each other.
Scott, on the other hand, has posted zero Instagram photos with Sofia. Ouch. But now we have to ask ourselves: Is Scott being a fuckboy, or just a regular straight guy on social media? Because of literally everything we know about Scott, the evidence seems to point to fuckboy. Scott posted multiple photos from the Venice trip, he just didn’t feel like posting the ones with Sofia. He’s very active on Instagram, but it seems like he doesn’t want to look too attached.
One plot twist that we can’t forget happened on Friday, when Sofia posted a mirror selfie of just herself on Scott’s Instagram story. Was this an accident? Or is she carefully marking her territory, like when a dog pees on a tree? We kind of feel like it’s the second option, considering that she clearly seems way too invested in making this relationship work.
We’ll be on the lookout for Scott actually acknowledging Sofia, but until then, it seems like he might just be up to his old fuckboy ways.
