While Scott Disick and Khloé Kardashian are best-known for having a playful friendship, their connection actually stems far deeper than that. In fact, in many ways, the Flip It Like Disick star, 36, is like a big brother to Koko, 35.

“Scott’s extremely protective over Khloé and doesn’t want to see her get hurt again,” a source exclusively told Life & Style. “Having once been a womanizer himself, he knows how to spot the red flags — if he thinks a guy is bad news, he’ll warn her to steer clear.”

Unsurprisingly, Scott’s instinct to shield Khloé from heartbreak has only gotten stronger since her split from Tristan Thompson. “Scott would love Khloé to meet Mr. Right, and thinks she deserves to find happiness,” the insider continued. “He’s even suggested setting her up with one of his friends. She’s open to suggestions, but most of them aren’t really her type.”

Despite Scott’s best efforts, the Good American mogul has made it pretty clear that she’s uninterested in all things romance right now. “I haven’t jumped into dating, I don’t care to date right now, I’m not in a rush for it, I feel so good in my life and I don’t really need much else,” Khloé told Jay Shetty during an October 14 episode of his podcast, “On Purpose.”

“Something that I’m focusing on is just making sure to process everything,” the KUWTK star explained of her post-breakup lifestyle. “I think, especially in my family, we’re good at moving on. Like, we have very big, forgiving hearts. We just move on … but we don’t really talk about things that happened and I don’t really know if that’s healthy or not.”

Thankfully, Scott has been by Koko’s side every step of the way! “Scott and Khloe bounce of each other — they have the same dry sense of humor and are often in hysterics when they’re together,” the source gushed. “This wasn’t always the case, though. Khloé wasn’t a fan of Scott when he was dating Kourtney [Kardashian] because of the way he treated her, but since then he’s cleaned up his act and matured and she’s seen a whole new side to him.”
