Scott Disick and Sofia Richie ended things earlier this week after their relationship had reportedly “ran its course.” On Wednesday, an insider revealed that Disick’s ex-girlfriend Kourtney Kardashian might have played major a part in their split.
Disick, 37, entered rehab earlier this month to work on his mental health issues. Photos soon leaked online of Disick in a therapy session, leading him to check out of the Colorado facility almost as quickly as he checked in.
His attorney said Disick’s entering rehab was not a result of alcohol or drug relapse. Some closer to the situation are now alluding to the opposite.
The tipster told Page Six that 21-year-old Richie “got fed up” because “Scott had gone back to his old ways.”
It remains unclear which bad habit set Richie off, but Disick’s longtime struggle with drinking has been well-documented since “Keeping Up With The Kardashians” premiered in 2007. His partying became a constant point of pain between him and Kardashian, 41, as they began to raise their young family.
Speculation of substance abuse is still well-warranted, but the insider claims Richie’s real stressor was actually Kardashian herself.
In their words, “Kourtney didn’t make it easy for her…and you can only tolerate that kind of treatment for so long.”
Richie originally met Disick on a boat ride while celebrating her birthday in 2017. They briefly broke up in 2018 after the Talentless founder allegedly cheated on her while in Miami, but would later reunite.

While she updated her Insta feed, Disick took a trip to Utah with Kardashian and their three kids.
On Memorial Day, Disick’s baby Mama Kourt flaunted her bikini bod when she shared a snap atop some rocks.
“Escape to the desert ???,” the Poosh founder captioned, tagging her location as Lake Powell, Utah.
Two days prior, proud dad Disick took to Instagram Story to show off his only daughter, 7-year-old Penelope Disick.
“My little girl is just 3 pretty,” he captioned the May 23rd pic.
A same-day Story update had Disick giving a glimpse of the gorgeous view surrounding his poolside perch.
In December, UsWeekly wrote that Disick and Richie were “so committed to one another” despite engagement/marriage not being “a big topic of conversation.”
Their informant explained that the “Flip It Like Disick” frontman was forging ahead to build a solid relationship with his girlfriend’s father, fame soul singer musician Lionel Richie*.
The “Brickhouse” singer, 70, had supposedly “come to see that Scott [was] a positive influence.”
But “like any father,” they added, Mr. Richie was “still worried that she’s too young to jump into something” so serious.
