‘KUWTK’ star Scott Disick, 37, spotted on date with 19-year-old Amelia Hamlin, Internet says it’s ‘grooming’
TV personality and socialite Scott Disick, who rose to fame after being introduced as Kourtney Kardashian’s boyfriend on Season 1 of ‘Keeping Up With the Kardashians’, reportedly has a new beau. As per TMZ, Disick was photographed with Amelia Hamlin, the daughter of Lisa Rinna and Harry Hamlin, strolling arm-on-shoulder on Monday, November 16, in Santa Barbara, California.
The two were also recently seen together at a Halloween party. So, entertainment news websites have been abuzz with gossip about the two dating. A source recently told Us Weekly that their relationship is “nothing serious at the moment” and that Disick is “dating around and having fun.”
Disick and Hamlin have an enormous age difference between them. The former is 37, while the latter is only 19. But this 18-year-gap is not out of the ordinary for Disick, who seems to have a pattern of dating younger women.
Disick and Kardashian were together for nearly a decade. The couple called it quits in 2015. Disick had referred to himself as a “f***ed up, horrible sex addict” in 2017. But he later backtracked. “I would say I think it’s a little rude that everybody keeps addressing me as a sex addict. I just like sex, but I’m not a sex addict,” he told E! News in July 2017. “I said that in a humorous, joking fashion on the show and now I’m getting billed as one, and it’s not the case. I do like sex, but I am not an addict.”
Sex addict or not, Disick’s dating history is a little revealing of his aforementioned pattern. Disick was first linked to Chloe Bartoli in 2006 when he was on a break with Kardashian. Bartoli was seven years younger than him. As per reports, nearly 10 years later, he had a brief fling with her again in 2015, and then again two years later in 2017.
Disick was later linked to Bella Thorne, who is 14 years younger than him. The two were linked during Disick’s 34th birthday celebration in Cannes in May 2017, when they were seen cozying up. Later that year, however, Thorne said, “I was never with him sexually. I’ve never seen 'Keeping Up With the Kardashians'... I don’t follow up with any of that.”
She also said, “Scott is really nice, sweet, charming. I don’t drink, and he really drinks a lot. And it just ended up... I just wasn't down. I was like, ‘I gotta leave.’ I love to go out and have fun, I love to f***ing dance, but I just don’t party hardcore like that and it was way too much for me. I was like, ‘Woah, this is not the way I live my life, bruh.'”
Disick was also briefly linked to Bella Banos in 2017. The model is 13 years younger than him. Following that, Disick was linked with British model Ella Ross. Ross is nine years younger than the socialite and was seen with him several times in May 2017. However, as per sources close to Disick, their relationship was never “serious”. Disick was also seen cozying up with model Jessica ‘J Lynne’ Harris in 2017. Harris is eight years younger than Disick.
Disick was also linked with the Australian model Megan Blake Irwin in 2016. Irwin is eight years younger than him. The same year, he was also seen going out with model Christine Burke. The two were seen kissing during a yacht party in the South of France in May 2016. Burke is 12 years younger than the ‘Keeping Up With the Kardashians’ star.
Disick also had a long-term relationship with Sofia Richie, who is 15 years younger than him. She is the youngest daughter of singer Lionel Richie, and reportedly, their on-again-off-again relationship ended in 2020. Richie was later spotted with Matthew Morton. A source told Us Weekly that her family “approved” of him after thinking she was “way better off” without Disick.
Many on social media have called Disick out, calling his pattern of dating young women “grooming”. One Twitter user wrote, “If the word ‘teen’ is in her age, Scott Disick should not be ‘dating’ her. She is closer in age to his oldest child than she is to him. Also, this is not ‘dating’...this is grooming and he is a predator.” Another Twitter user, referring to a TMZ headline said, “Why don’t we change the title to: Scott Disick, 37, grooming 19-year old Amelia Hamlin. Because a 37-year-old man IMO has no business dating a 19-year-old. Yes she’s an adult so technically it’s legal but it doesn’t mean it’s ethical.” Another Twitter user said, “Scott Disick is just a predator at this point, grooming lil white girls.”
