Sofia Richie and Scott Disick may have had multiple reasons for social distancing.

Richie, 21, was said to be quarantining apart from Disick, 37, amidst the coronavirus crisis. Their 16-year age difference never seemed to bother them, but it's been a regular topic of scrutiny since they began dating in 2017.

Neither Disick or Richie have made any comment on their speculated split. An insider close to the couple revealed on Thursday that "it's an open secret that they’re on a break.”

Sofia Hit Several 'Tipping Points' With Scott

“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 tipster told HollywoodLife.

The publication also wrote that a friend of Richie's claims the pair were actually quarantining together before Disick checked into rehab late last month.

Though Disick and Richie have hit a few bumps over time, the source said, "they’ve always found their way back to each other."

"But for now, things are strained to say the least."

She Didn't Want To 'Keep Up'

It was also speculated that Richie was seeking some professional anonymity, as Disick shares three children with Poosh founder Kourtney Kardashian.

“She never wanted to seem like she was riding his coattails and celebrity with his connection to the Kardashians," they said, adding that "she never wanted to be on the show."

The young model confirmed earlier this year that she would no longer be appearing on "Keeping Up With The Kardashians." Her reasoning was that it conflicted with a new career aspiration.

Supposed To Be 'The Year Of No Fear'

"I want to get into acting!" she told ET in February.

Pre-pandemic Richie seemed to have high hopes when she declared that "2020 is [the year of] no fear."

"I'm gonna be doing acting stuff really soon...great things are happening and I'm really excited about it."

The Thursday source spilled that Richie "wanted to be her own person," and that her new goals caused some conflict between her and Disick.

They reported it being "a constant discussion between the two of how to navigate it all."

Scott & Sofia Fought Over 'Petty' Stuff

They explained the pair's disagreements were "mostly petty," and Richie hated it when Disick wouldn't take her seriously.

“Scott would get on her nerves very easily by rolling his eyes" at the littlest things, they said, like what they'd be eating or what show they'd watch as they did it.

Another issue was that Disick made himself the master partier on the Kardashian shows, but has become more tame in recent years.

This is where the age factor is said to come into play.

The Talentless founder became quite the nightlife king over the least decade. At one point, nightclubs would shell out as much as $80,000 just to have him show up.

He said in 2016 that the gig had lost its sparkle because he'd "just been doing it for so long."

But his girlfriend just secured the ability to drink legally less than a year ago. Unlike big sis Nicole Richie, Sofia's not about that simple life.

"Sofia is young," the source continued, "and not being able to go out has made her realize what she had with Scott. She didn’t like the person he was becoming."
