Scott Disick Reveals Why He Kept Sofia Richie Romance Under Wraps
Scott Disick has revealed that he kept his relationship with Sofia Richie a secret out of ‘respect’ to his former partner Kourtney Kardashian.
Reality TV star Scott, 34, began dating the 19-year-old daughter of music legend Lionel Richie last year, but there had been whispers about their relationship for quite some time before they confirmed that they were in a romantic relationship.
During Sunday night’s episode of Keeping Up With The Kardashians, filmed in the early stages of his relationship with Sofia, Scott was seen being pressed about his romance with the young model by his ex’s mother Kris Jenner, 62.
In response, Scott – father of Mason, eight, Penelope, five, and Reign, three – admitted that he wanted to keep the then-blossoming romance quiet for the sake of protecting the feelings of the mother of his three children.
Expressing discomfort at discussing his personal life with Kris, he said: ‘Kris really is like my mom to me, so I don’t ever feel like she’s putting me on the spot.
‘But I don’t really feel comfortable talking to her about my personal or dating life. For me, to see that Kris is invested in my life means the world to me. Because she’s got so many other kids and so many other things going on.
So the fact that she actually worries, loves and cares about me is probably one of the best feelings I have.
‘Truthfully, as much as I’d like to be honest with her and tell her how I’m how I’m really feeling, I also do want to respect Kourtney and her feelings.
‘Maybe down the line. But right now, my biggest thing is just being respectful of everybody.’
