Sofia Richie's mom approves of her boyfriend Scott Disick despite his scandalous past: 'He's a really good guy'
She also mentioned that she doesn't mind the 15-year age gap between her daughter and 36-year-old Scott
Scott Disick has a very close relationship with the famous Kardashian family. He is still considered a part of their family even after his split with Kourtney Kardashian. He has a notorious and scandalous image for cheating, partying, drugs and rehab. But despite all that, his current girlfriend Sofia Richie’s mother Diana Alexander approves of him.
Diana said Scott is a “really good guy”. She also commented that “I love him! And he’s such a good dad, I do not know if people really know that. He is at home with them every night – homework, bedtime.” She also mentioned that she doesn't mind the 15-year age gap between her daughter and 36-year-old Scott. She said,” It's very well-adjusted in my eyes, all of it. Everyone seems in a healthy place.”
Scott is an entrepreneur and a reality TV star. He rose to fame in 2006 after his run with former girlfriend Kourtney Kardashian. Since then, he became a recurring reality star actor on the show 'Keeping up with the Kardashian (KUWTK)'. With the success of the show, Scott was also offered a spin-off of the original show called 'Flip it Like Disick'. It aired in 2019 with only eight episodes before it got canceled due to a "boring" test shoot and unusable footage.
He and Kourtney had a long nine-year on and off a relationship during which they had three kids, Mason Dash Disick, 10, Penelope Scotland Disick, 7, and Reign Aston Disick, 5.
Scott's popularity stems from all the wrong reasons. In 2010, Kourtney worried about his substance abuse problems and talked about it on KUWTK. In an incident on the show, Scott shoved a $100 bill down a waiter's mouth and said, “Shut your f***ing mouth." Later, Kourtney had confronted him for smoking pot while he was alone with their son Mason.
She broke off her relationship with Scott until the two reunited after his regular therapy when he temporarily abstained from drugs. But that did not hold off too well and in 2011, he was back to drinking and partying, which did not go well with Kourtney.
In 2012, Scott and Kourtney welcomed their second child, Penelope. And in 2014, their third child, Reign, was born. All was good for a while, but in 2014, Scott checked himself into a hospital after partying too hard in a party thrown by Kim Kardashian. He reportedly called Khloe Kardashian in panic after he kicked the door to find a whole bottle of sleeping pills which he had taken.
In 2015, he was caught cheating on Kourtney when he was partying on a yacht with random women and his ex-girlfriend Chloe Bartoli. The pictures of their very public rendezvous had gone viral on social media. A few months later, Scott and Kourtney called off their relationship.
In 2016, Scott was found unresponsive in bed after going on a bender of cocaine, vodka, beer, and Viagra. He had to be revived with an adrenaline shot.
Though the couple tried to keep it civil for their children, the Kardashian family invited Scott for a vacation to Costa Rica in 2017. He stayed in a hotel and not with the family because he had invited a woman named Chelsea to spend some time with him.
When the family confronted him about it, he blamed it on his addiction, saying that he was a sex addict. “We’re here to be a family,” Kourtney said on KUWTK. “I don’t understand why he would think to invite somebody. It’s hurtful and disrespectful.” The same year, he was also caught with the former Disney star, Bella Thorne in France.
Scott and Kourtney tried their best to co-parent their children while trying to remain, good friends, despite his drinking problem. In fact, he was again hospitalized in August 2017. After his breakdown and hospitalization, he was clean and had met his current girlfriend Sofia.
Sofia and Scott's relationship has had a few ups and downs but they are stronger than ever. Even Kourtney accepts their relationship and also invites them to any functions, vacations or celebrations.
