For nearly a decade we’ve watched Kourtney Kardashian try and make a relationship work with the father of their three children, Scott Disick. The eldest Kardashian seemed a lot more straight-laced then her former bad boy beau, and though their relationship seemed to work at times, it never really stayed on a smooth path. As they have gotten older, Kardashian has been increasingly frustrated with Disick’s hard-partying ways and rumors of infidelity. After the death of his parents, the 34-year-old seemed to dive off the deep end, even doing stints in rehab centers.
Now, despite their three children — Mason, Penelope, and Reign — the former couple seems more focused on co-parenting and trying to maintain a friendship than making anything romantic happen between them. Despite the fact that they have both moved on, Disick’s burgeoning relationship with 19-year-old model Sofia Richie, the daughter of music legend Lionel Richie, has definitely raised a few eyebrows.
There have been rumors swirling around about the unconventional duo, and Richie’s American Idol judge father has even been vocal about how he feels about the relationship. But what does Kardashian think about the father of her children moving on with someone 15 years his junior? Here’s what she had to say.
Canoodling at Cannes
In May, Disick and Richie were first spotted together at Cannes Film Festival. Though Disick had been photographed with a bevy of other women, including actress Bella Throne and the Kardashian/Jenner’s former stylist Chloe Bartoli, fans were a bit taken aback when the father of three was then spotted cuddling with Richie on a yacht.
The two have spent a great deal of time together since.
A whirlwind of PDA
The odd couple certainly hasn’t tried to keep their relationship under wraps. The duo has been photographed around Los Angeles, on vacation in Mexico, on boats, private jets, and every other place one could imagine.
Though they haven’t acknowledged their relationship to media, Richie’s Instagram page looks pretty official to us.
A father’s wrath
While most of us are still trying to determine how we feel about this newfound love, Richie’s Grammy-winning father did not mince words when he was asked about his daughter’s love life. The “Hello” singer told Us Weekly, “Have I been in shock?! I’m the dad, come on. I’m scared to death, are you kidding me?”
[Lionel Richie] thinks Scott is the worst person she could ever see and that he raised her better than that. He thinks she should have more respect for herself as a young woman. Lionel knows Scott’s playboy ways, and he doesn’t want to see his daughter get hurt.
Just so everyone can get their panties out of their asses, Scott and I are just homies #relax

When photographs of the couple first came out, Richie took to Twitter to set the record straight. She said, “Scott and I are just homies.”
However, the 19-year-old was just spotted out driving Disick’s car to hang with some friends in West Hollywood.
Offical or nah?
Unfortunately, it seems like Richie might be way more committed to her relationship with Disick than he is to her. A source told People, Sofia has been referring to Disick as “her boyfriend” and “thinks he’s the best.”
However, these feelings might be a bit more one-sided then Richie might want. An insider told PEOPLE,
Scott isn’t treating this as a long-term relationship whatsoever. He is just having fun. Sofia wanted a commitment from him, so he committed to be her “boyfriend.” He still has Kourtney at the top of his mind all the time, and he is still texting and flirting with other girls. Sofia is very young and naive and doesn’t know what she’s in for. She feels like she’s in the in-crowd right now and loves that Scott has swagger and money and that he loves to travel and party.
Kourtney Kardashian is cool with it
Despite the rumors that say otherwise, Disick’s 38-year-old ex has no problems with his relationship with Richie. They’ve gotten to a fairly good place with co-parenting, and Kardashian just wants Disick to be happy.
TMZ reports, “She thinks it’s genuine and feels good that he’s moving on.” After all, the mother of three has obviously moved on herself with 24-year-old model Younes Bendjima.
A jealous rage
Despite Kardashian being chill about Disick’s new relationship, he seems none too pleased that she’s moved on. On a recent episode of Keeping Up with the Kardashians, Disick exploded when his ex went out with another man. After being photographed by the paparazzi, Kardashian decided to give Disick a heads up. She explained,
Last night I went to dinner with a guy and was photographed, and I just felt like I should give Scott a heads up out of respect, even though he hasn’t done the same to me in the past. But the photos never ended up coming out in the end, so it was pretty much all for nothing.
When Kardasian was on the phone with Disick, you can hear him screaming at her at the top of his lungs.
Long lasting feelings
Though Disick has been spending a ton of time with Richie, it seems like he might not be over the mother of his children. On a recent episode of KUWTK, Kardashian’s mother Kris Jenner pointed out that Disick was jealous that she was vacationing in Mexico without him.
Kardashian responded by saying:
Well, that’s really not fair. It’s just like, I can’t even live my life. I can’t even f*cking go anywhere. He needs to get a f*cking life and leave me alone. All he does is try to make everybody else feel bad for him and try to make me look like the bad guy in this situation when clearly I’m not from 10 years of this going on.
