More fuel was added to this fire after Disick, 37, was reported to have split from girlfriend Sofia Richie at some point last week. The pair began dating after meeting at her birthday party in 2017.
A mid-week source claimed that Kardashian “didn’t make it easy” for Richie to date Disick, and another source said today that “Scott will always love Kourtney.”
“But at the end of the day, they both know they are better off as parents and not partners,” the insider told HollywoodLife on Sunday.
“He will always put her on this pedestal and has never loved another woman quite in the way in which he loved her. It was that first true love type of feeling. Romantically, it won’t happen, but they are the best of co-parents and friends and just want the other to be happy.”
However, the source continued, “They just don’t work well as boyfriend and girlfriend.”
“Scott does hold a special place in his heart that is a little differently than Kourtney, but he knows they’re just better off not together.”
Disick and Kardashian are the proud parents of three children: oldest son Mason, 10, daughter Penelope, 6, and youngest son Reign, 4. Even though the family of five took a Memorial Day trip to Utah last weekend, the informant says Kardashian isn’t looking for things to develop with Disick.
In fact, it looks like she has the same feelings that he does.
They explained that “Kourtney also has love for Scott, but again, not in a romantic way.”
“They care about the other very deeply, but the romantic feelings between them are not there. They look at each other like any exes who were together for years and broke up would, except they’re in a great place. Scott is always going to be family and Kourtney will always be there for him.”
Some thought the trip was planned as a birthday getaway for Scott. The outlet reports that this trip “was actually a very last minute decision and it wasn’t planned” as such, but “turned into” one as it went on.
“The kids all love celebrating birthdays,” they shared, “so it was very fun for them too.”
Kardashian seemed to have a great time in her red bikini on Instagram. She also was active to share photos of her family enjoying the great outdoors of Lake Powell on boat trips and horseback rides. Disick shared several updates to his own Instagram Story, hanging out poolside both by himself and with the kids.
Neither he or Richie have commented on their breakup, but it was rumored yesterday that “he truly believes he will get Sofia back.”
