Sofia Richie, 21, and Scott Disick, 37, reconciled in early July after breaking up in May. But according to a source, their relationship has slowed down.
“Scott and Sofia have simmered down a little and Scott has been making a big effort to refocus on himself and his family,” an insider told Us Weekly. “Their relationship has taken a bit of a backseat and it’s not either of their main priorities right now.”
The “Keeping Up With the Kardashians” star has been spending more time with his three children, who he shares with Kourtney Kardashian.
While things with Disick might be slowing down, Richie is still making time to enjoy herself.
Over the weekend, Lionel Richie’s daughter was photographed with friends in Malibu, California.
The 21-year-old showed off her impressive figure in a white string bikini she accessorized with black sunglasses.
At one point during the outing, Richie enjoyed a game of beach tennis with friends.
The “Flip It Like Disick” star was first linked to Richie in 2017. Their relationship caused a bit of controversy, seeing as they have a 15-year age gap.
In April 2020, Disick checked himself into a Colorado facility to work on “past traumas,” after Richie reportedly noticed a change in her boyfriend.
“Sofia noticed a change in him and that he wasn’t as healthy and happy as he could be and Scott made the decision to get help for himself and for her and their relationship,” a source told Us Weekly.
After checking himself out of rehab, Disick went home to Richie where she continued to support him.
At the end of May, a source confirmed the two were on a break.
“They are technically ‘split’ but Sofia has been in touch with Scott,” a source told E! News at the time.
“Sofia thinks Scott has a lot on his plate right now and thinks it’s best for them to be apart so he can focus on himself. She is only looking out for him and his best interest and it was primarily her decision for them to split.”
But according to reports, they continued to talk. And by July, they were officially back on.
“Scott has been much more calm and responsive to people outside of his family over the last month or so,” a source told Us Weekly last month.
“Whatever issues that were bubbling up between Sofia and Scott at the start of the pandemic have simmered down and Scott has returned to a place where Sofia feels comfortable being around him and being in his life again.”
Richie and Disick were photographed together several times last month. During the fourth of July, they enjoyed lunch at Nobu Malibu with friends before hitting a beach party.
