Well, this is awkward! Even though we’re still desperate for a Kourtney Kardashian and Scott Disick reunion, we’ve had to accept that it’s likely not going to happen. Kourt is expecting a baby with model boyfriend Younes Bendjima, and (despite initially threatening to beat him up) Scott finally seems to have moved on with his new fiancée (yep, they’re engaged), Sofia Richie! So, everything’s chill then, right?
Wrong. While both couples have been all over each other on social media, it looks like Kourtney still isn’t 100% comfortable with her ex dating a 19-year-old. Apparently, she’s banned the blonde beauty from going anywhere near the kids she shares with Scott — Mason, 7, Penelope, 5, and Reign, 2.
“Kourtney is a fierce mom, and she’ll do whatever it takes to protect her kids,” an insider told The Sun. “She doesn’t want them getting confused by Scott’s new girlfriend — Mason is seven, old enough to understand a lot of things now, and Kourtney doesn’t want them meeting another one of Scott’s new girlfriends, only for her to disappear from their lives in a month.”
The source also hinted that part of the reason Kourtney wasn’t happy about Sofia meeting the children is because she would hate to see them think of anybody else as their mom. “These past few months have been tough — she’s had to co-parent with Scott, and keep things nice between mom and dad. She spoke to Scott and said Sofia can meet the kids in a few months — and he’s agreed to do things her way … for now.”
Scott only officially confirmed he was dating Lionel Richie‘s daughter last month. While Younes and Kourt were first spotted together last year, he’s not been spotted anywhere near her kids, prompting speculation that he hasn’t met them yet either. Even though we’d like to see the former reality star couple get back together, we’re glad they’ve found a co-parenting situation that works for them.
