Sofia Richie 'giving space' to Scott Disick after his abrupt exit from rehab but remains 'loyal' to him
'She has been giving Scott space to figure out his next steps but has consistently been supporting him. Their relationship has been three years of ups and downs, but she isn't leaving him to the dust'
After he abruptly exited his high-end rehab facility in Colorado earlier this month, there were rumors that Sofia Richie had already moved on from her boyfriend Scott Disick However, a recent report suggested that although it was "hard" for her to see the 'Keeping Up With The Kardashians' star "in a vulnerable state", she had chosen to stand by him as he continues to work on "past traumas" in his life.
TMZ recently claimed that the model was seen enjoying herself with her friends in Malibu in the past few weeks, while 36-year-old Disick was nowhere to be seen, prompting rumors that his sudden exit from the rehabilitation center might have caused a rift between them. However, a new report by E! News rubbished that report, adding that 21-year-old Richie merely decided to give Disick some space while continuing to be loyal to him.
"She has been giving Scott space to figure out his next steps but has consistently been supporting him. Their relationship has been three years of ups and downs, but she isn't leaving him to the dust. She's very loyal to Scott. He hasn't wanted to leave the house since his rehab exit, so Sofia will go and hang with friends by herself to get away and let Scott have space. Scott has been in a very vulnerable place this last month and sometimes it is best for their relationship if they have space and do their own thing," a source told the outlet.
Disick had checked into rehab on April 28 at the All Points North Lodge in Edwards, Colorado, but checked out after less than a week after pictures of him checking into rehab were leaked to the press. At the same time, there were also rumors floating around that he could possibly have checked into rehab due to alcohol or cocaine abuse.
Disick's lawyer Marty Singer revealed that he had checked into rehab to deal with the death of his parents. "In an effort to finally come to terms and deal with the pain that Scott has been silently suffering for many years due to the sudden death of his mother, followed by the death of his father three months later, Scott made the decision to check himself into a rehab facility last week to work on his past traumas," the statement said. "He did not check-in for any alcohol or cocaine abuse."
"Shockingly as a result of the HIPA (sic) violation of the facility and his violation of privacy, he has checked himself out and is immediately returning home," read the statement. "We are alarmed by this extreme invasion of privacy and plan to take immediate legal action."
Although Disick is reportedly "still very upset and angry at what happened," he is planning to check in to another facility soon after making sure that there is no repeat of what happened last time. "There's concern over what Scott's next move will be as in, where can he go that's safe, respects his privacy and will provide what he needs," a source told US Weekly. "He's looking for new facilities but he will probably wait a bit for COVID concerns to die down. He's doing alright and spending a lot of time with family and [Sofia Richie]."
