In early 2018, Lionel Richie described daughter Sofia Richie and Scott Disick's relationship as "just a phase". But these two proved Lionel (the legend that he is) and their doubters wrong for three years, before news of their split broke in May 2019. Here's a look back on Scott and Sofia's dating history, starting with the most recent update:
July 15, 2020: The pair are rumoured to be back together after ending their relationship back in May and, according to US sources, the pair are "taking things slow" this time around as they spend more time together. "[They are] trying to make things work while taking things slow," a source told People magazine.
A day earlier, a source told Us Weekly they were giving things another go after Scott had time to focus on his issues. "They are hanging out again romantically. It's back on," the insider commented, explaining that they used the time apart for Scott to work through some things. "Sofia wanted Scott to get through and overcome any issues he has and Scott wanted to put a bigger focus on himself and his family before any sort of romantic relationship."
The source added, "Scott has been much more calm and responsive to people outside of his family over the last month or so.
"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."
Hopefully they can make things work.
