How Long Has she Been Dating Scott Disick?

Sofia Richie and Scott Disick have been publicly dating since May 2017. They couple had apparently known each other for some time before, as they ran in the same social circles.

Sofia Richie actually grew up socialising with Kendal and Kylie Jenner, the youngest of the Kardashian Jenner clan. And Sofia’s big sister Nicole Richie was BFFs with Kim Kardashian in her younger days too.

Why Did Scott and Kourtney Split?

Scott Disick was in an on again off again relationship for over 10 years with Kourtney Kardashian, before the couple split for good.

Scott and Kourtney met in 2006, and had an up and down relationship over the years. Despite having three children together, it wasn’t meant to be. Their first big break up was in 2009 – but they were back on before the birth of their first child Mason in December.

Scott’s alcohol issues were an ongoing problem in their relationship, as were rumours of Scott’s cheating. Their relationship finally came to an end after Scott was pictured getting cosy with two models in 2017.

Sofia Richie’s age doesn’t seem to be a turn off for Scott – she isn’t the first younger woman Scott’s been close with. He’s been linked to Bella Thorne, who is also 15 years his junior.

What is Sofia Richie’s Age Difference With Scott Disick?

Sofia Richie’s age difference with Scott Disick is a whopping 15 years, as the Keeping Up With The Kardashians star is 36! Disick was born in 1983, long before Sofia came along in 1998. In the USA, only 4.8% of married couples have such an age difference.

But lots of celebrity couples have big age gaps – George Clooney and Amal Clooney, Beyonce and Jay-Z, and Calista Flockhart and Harrison Ford to name just a few are far apart in age but in happy relationships.

How Much Older Is Kourtney Kardashian?

Kourtney Kardashian is 40 years old, 4 years older than Scott Disick and 19 years older than Sofia Richie. Sofia Richie’s age is actually closer to Scott and Kourtney’s kids – she’s 11 years older than their son Mason and 14 years older than their daughter Penelope.

Kourtney and Scott co-parent their three kids, and Sofia seems to be involved. Scott has shared holiday snaps of all three of them together, so it looks like they all get along.

Scott and Sofia Richie’s Relationship Timeline

Scott and Sofia were first rumoured to be dating in May 2017, after they were spotted in Cannes. Sofia even posted a picture of herself on the same yacht where Scott was, but neither of them confirmed that they were seeing each other. Sofia Richie’s age at the time was 19.

By September 2017, the couple were being seen together more regularly, and speculation ramped up as they appeared on each other’s Instagram Stories. By October, the pair were Instagram official!

The relationship seemed to be going from strength to strength as 2018 rolled around. The couple were often seen about town together and publicly shared pics of them on holiday regularly on Instagram.

But the happiness didn’t last as Kylie Jenner made a dig at Sofia Richie’s age – she commented on a fan photo of Scott, Sofia and Scott’s kids in a car with:

“Aww Scott and his kids”

Ouch!

By Valentine’s Day 2018, Scott confirmed his relationship with Sofia on an episode of Keeping Up With The Kardashians – a big relationship milestone!

But by June 2018, gossip was flying that Scott had been caught making out with another woman in Miami, and the couple reportedly broke up. But Scott and Sofia took to Instagram to squash the rumours, saying they had never split up at all.

And by December 2018, the couple were enjoying a holiday in Mexico with Kourtney and the kids, all one big happy family! And Sofia even joined the Kardashian Jenner new year trip skiing in Aspen, so she’s clearly part of the family now.

Sofia Richie is the youngest daughter of singer Lionel Richie. Her mum is Lionel’s second wife Diane Alexander. She has an older sister Nicole Richie, who is adopted, and a biological brother Miles.

And Sofia Richie’s godfather was Michael Jackson, and she was close friends with his daughter Paris growing up.

Sofia’s big sister Nicole rose to fame as the bestie of Paris Hilton, starring in the reality show The Simple Life in 2003. Nicole has gone on to be a fashion designer and TV star, and married Joel Madden in 2010.

What Does Sofia Richie Do For A Living?

Sofia Richie’s age hasn’t impacted her success – she started modelling at just 14! Her first feature was with Teen Vogue, and at 15 she had a contract with a big swimwear company.

And Sofia has walked in lots of runway shows and photo shoots for huge magazines, and has even turned her hand to fashion design. As well as all this success, she’s a big star on Instagram, where she has more than 5.4 million followers. She even had a cameo in 2018’s Ocean’s 8, so maybe a career in film is on the horizon for Sofia Richie as well!

What Are Scott and Sofia Up To Now?

Sofie Richie turned 21 in August, and the couple took a trip to Las Vegas to celebrate. Disick even bought her an Aston Martin for her birthday, wow!
