Amid all the rumors surrounding the essentially-confirmed split between Scott Disick and Sofia Richie after three years of dating, there appears to be claims that Disick's motivation behind amicably calling off the relationship was a lingering love for ex-girlfriend, Kourtney Kardashian.

A new source for US Magazine claims that Disick's love for Kardashian has never truly faded and Richie became more aware of the feelings as time went on, aside from the notions of their often discussed 16 year age gap.

"Scott is always going to be in love with Kourtney, and that’s something Sofia has had to face since even before she got serious with him," the source claimed to the publication, suggesting that the issue has existed for quite some time but only recently has reached a critical point where they decided to call it quits.

"It’s been an ongoing thing. It just became more apparent that his family was more of a priority than she was, and his family would be his main priority over anything and anyone," the source added.

Disick and Kardashian were a couple from 2006 to 2015 and in that time had three children, Mason, 10, Penelope, 7, and Reign, 5. In 2017, Disick and Richie reportedly began dating, and earlier​ this week following Disick's highly-publicized-yet short stint at a rehabilitation facility, news broke that the couple had parted ways.

The source then went on to explain how quarantine measures exacerbated​ the issues between the couple further, making a split almost inevitable given the amount of time they were spending around each other.

"The quarantine has put a spin on things for Scott. He’s always had issues, especially with addiction, and that’s always been a concern on the Kardashians’ end and Sofia and her family’s end," the source went on to mention.

Following the rehab attempt, it appears their relationship fizzled out even further, "Sofia noticed that he wasn’t doing well and gave him an ultimatum, and in the end it seemed like Scott was more focused on Kourtney and his kids than her."

Detailing why it appears that Kardashian and Disick could make it work more than he and Richie did, the source said "Kourtney has always been hesitant about getting back together with Scott or letting him in in a romantic sense. She has given him so many chances over the years after he has said that he is going to prove himself to her, and he seemingly still hasn’t in certain aspects."

However, beyond any alleged romantic ties, their children will always keep them together, "The fact that he is the father of their three kids keeps them connected forever. Kourtney wants the best for Scott and knows they’ve been through the wringer together. She lets him in — but at an arm’s length," the source noted.
