Since news of their breakup began swirling roughly two days ago, fans of both Scott Disick and Sofia Richie have been clamoring for specific details regarding why the three-year-long​ relationship seemingly fizzled out so suddenly and without any actual explanation from either party.

Now, a source for HollywoodLife is candidly explaining that quarantine lockdown measures took a serious toll on the couple, who haven't announced their breakup officially, but sources claim, "It’s an open secret that they’re on a break."

"There’s just a certain amount one person can take and Sofia reached various tipping points throughout her time with Scott that made things worse," the source told the publication, suggesting that this particular instance was a tipping point in their relationship.

Disick and Richie have reportedly been quarantining together in his home in Calabasas since lockdown measures were enacted, but they have not been seen together in public since Disick checked himself out of rehab over privacy concerns back in April.

"She never wanted to seem like she was riding his coattails and celebrity with his connection to the Kardashians, and she never wanted to be on the show," the insider continued to explain of the factors that culminated in the breakup.

"She wanted to be her own person and that was a constant discussion between the two of how to navigate it all. As much as she loves his kids, Sofia isn’t in a place to act as stepmom-figure right now, and that just added more stress."

The source added that the pressures of constantly being around one another with no personal free time helped further the decision to split, citing the 16 year age gap that the former couple had, "Sofia is young and not being able to go out has made her realize what she had with Scott, and she didn’t like the person he was becoming. She can’t travel and get away with him or even work or do photoshoots to give herself some space."

Beyond those factors, the insider also mentioned to the publication that the origin of a lot of their arguments was "petty," saying, "Scott would get on her nerves very easily by rolling his eyes about anything she would bring up, he was never agreeing with her on simple things, like what to eat or what to watch. Everything just continued to stack up, and it just became another thing to be bothered with."

Richie has reportedly since been quarantining with her father, singer Lionel Richie, following the split with Disick.
