In case you missed it amidst the news of Kylie and Khloe and their respective pregnancies, Scott Disick has a new girlfriend and she’s way younger than his ex/baby mama Kourtney Kardashian. She’s also the daughter of famous singer Lionel Richie.
Sofia and Scott have been dating since September, and though they hadn’t been Insta-Official (which we all know is the only confirmation that counts) they were certainly packing on the PDA. They shared a celebratory dessert at a restaurant that I can only guess isn’t an Applebees (although I’ve definitely wanted to celebrate all of my milestones with a cake and waiters singing at me at my local chain restaurant.)
This is how I feel about the whole thing.
Then, as if that wasn’t enough the two decided to take a trip to Mexico, and look what we have here:
Looks like it’s ~*official*~ to me.
Yep, still not totally on board with it.
Also not totally on board? Sofia’s dad, Lionel Richie. When UsWeekly asked the singer what he thought of the match, he said, “Have I been in shock?! I’m the dad, come on.” Shocking is one word to describe the relationship between Disick, who is 34 and Sofia, who is just 19. Do you have a calculator handy? Because that’s a hefty age difference.
It’s normal for any dad to be worried about their daughter, but is he at least happy for the couple? Not quite. “I’m scared to death, are you kidding me?”
But a source tells People that he isn’t just scared, he doesn’t approve of the relationship whatsoever. According to the source, “He thinks Scott is the worst person she could ever see and that he raised her better than that.” The reasoning? “Lionel know Scott’s playboy ways and he doesn’t want to see his daughter get hurt.”
Scott has been linked to multiple women since officially calling it quits with Kourtney Kardashian, who he shares three children with. Most notably, he’s been seen canoodling with Bella Thorne who is also 19 years old. Here’s a quick joke for you: What do you call a male cougar? Scott Disick. Thank you, I’ll be here all week.
Lionel doesn’t want his youngest daughter to get attached to Scott, who he thinks is “just having fun.” According to the insider, “Scott isn’t treating this as a long-term relationship whatsoever[…]Sofia wanted commitment from him, so he committed to be her ’boyfriend.'”
Guess we’ll have to see if it lasts.
