New beginnings. Sofia Richie thinks her split from ex Scott Disick is “a good move for her and him,” a source exclusively tells Life & Style. The model, 21, is staying positive and using this time to focus on herself. “She’s concentrating on her career, she really wants to act,” divulges the insider.
The former couple began dating in September 2017 and had been on-and-off through the years. Luckily, there seems to be no bad blood between them. “Sofia loved Scott too, but she’s very mature for her age,” adds the source. “Sofia had a blast with Scott and will forever hold their time together as special.”
The Talentless founder, 37, is seemingly trying to keep his head up as well. Scott “truly only wants the best” for the up-and-coming actress. He “has no hard feelings,” another source told Life & Style. “She’s a great girl.”
Their split came after Scott checked himself into a Colorado rehab facility in April to manage emotional issues relating to his parents’ deaths in 2013 and 2014. Sofia actually encouraged her ex to seek help. She “tried to be there for Scott and still loves him, but at the end of the day, he can only help himself,” an additional source said.
As Life & Style previously reported, the pair took “some time apart” before calling it quits for good. It turns out, Sofia hoped their temporary split would be a “wake-up call” for the Flip It Like Disick star.
Though they were never able to reconcile, Scott has a good support system. The father of three, who shares Mason, 10, Penelope, 7, and Reign, 5, with ex Kourtney Kardashian, has been “leaning” on the Poosh.com founder “for support” during this difficult time. “She’s helping him get back on the straight and narrow … he’s the father of her kids, and she’s vowed to stand by him on his road to recovery, as long as he continues working on himself,” a separate source explained.
Since the split, Scott has been spending time with his family. For his 37th birthday on Tuesday, May 26, the reality star flew back from his lavish trip in Utah to celebrate with the Kar-Jenners in Los Angeles. For her part, Sofia has been spending time with family and friends. The following day, she gave her brother, Miles Richie, a birthday shout-out. “No matter what we have each other!” Sofia wrote. “I love you more.”
At least the exes are in good company!
