Sofia Richie isn’t here to ‘prove her relationship’ with Scott Disick on social media

Jared Kushner Iraq

Since CB and I have been doing the Gossip with Celebitchy podcast, I really have been paying more attention to when commenter peeps leave a particularly insightful and funny comment. Recently, in one of the “Jordyn Woods was hooking up with Khloe Kardashian’s exes stories, Ronaldinhio commented, “Are there only 10 men in the United States?” That’s how it genuinely feels sometimes when covering the antics of the Kardashian-Jenners and their adjacents. The idea that any of these people could just pick up and go somewhere else and start dating someone not in their immediate orbit feels extremely foreign. So it is with the LA youths too – Hailey Baldwin and Justin Bieber were around each other for years before they got married, and he’d dated like five her friends.

Then there’s the curious case of Sofia Richie and Scott Disick. Sofia is only 20 years old, and she’s been with Scott for more than a year already. He’s a grown man with grown-man issues, like alcoholism and three children. But Sofia clings to him because I guess she doesn’t realize that she could be out there, living like a 20 year old and actually leaving behind the dumb dating pool of the same ten guys. Oh, remember, she dated Justin Bieber too. As I said, the same dating pool. Sofia covers the latest issue of Tatler and she talks about her relationship with Scott and… other things. Some highlights:

She’s not going to flaunt her relationship with Scott: ‘I think a lot of people think they have to prove their relationships through social media and I’m just happy being private about my relationship. It’s not like I won’t post pictures about it, but I like having my little private life.’

She prefers a low-key life: ‘I‘m not a party girl and I really don’t like the paparazzi,’ she insists, preferring instead to host couples’ games nights for her friends. Who might be in her games gang? ‘My friend Tina and her boyfriend, my friend Gigi…’ Gigi Hadid? ‘No, not that Gigi,’ she says with a laugh. ‘No one you would know.’ They eat takeaway pizza and play Taboo or something called Spoons, which Richie and Disick made up themselves. Richie grins, ‘Clearly we have a lot of time on our hands.’ She says they do go out for date nights but prefer to keep them low-key. ‘Whatever we do, whether it’s going to the cinema or dinner, we’ll always just end up going home and watching a movie after.’

She wanted to be a singer at first: ‘I went on a world tour with my dad when I was 14 and during that time I was convinced that I wanted to be a singer. I decided it had to happen right there and then for me. So I said to him, “I know you have the connections! You need to put me in front of the right people and let me sing.” And he was like, “If you still want to do it in four years and you train for it, I’ll put you in front of someone. And if they think you’re good enough, then you can do it.” Four years later I was like, “Absolutely not. Don’t even talk to me about it.” It’s too much pressure – people would be expecting Adele to jump out of my voice.’

[From Tatler]

Do you think it’s weird that she and Scott have all this time together and she’s basically saying he doesn’t spend time with his kids? Kourtney Kardashian and Scott have a somewhat pained relationship, but that’s mostly because Kourtney is such a pain in the ass. But is she basically a single mother, and Scott isn’t with the kids at all? As for Sofia’s whole vibe… I actually hope that she is just using Scott to build her profile and she’ll eventually move on to better things. I slept on Hailey Baldwin too, and now look at her: Mrs. Bieber with a thriving modeling career. Sofia can dream.

    I’m pretty sure when they initially got together it was statutory. That and the fact it’s a grown man (with kids!) hanging out with a girl barely out of her teens is probably a reason why she doesn’t flaunt it too.

  2. Diane says:

    Does anyone really care about either of these two?

    • Pandy says:

      Nope! Potato face and that jerk (you pick who’s who).
      Will just say all I thought about with the “spoons” game they invented was cooking heroin.

  3. cherry says:

    Okay, so, hang on.
    - She likes having her little private life.
    - She doesn’t want to flaunt her relationship.
    - She’s not a party girl.
    - She really doesn’t like the paparazzi.
    - She prefers to host couples’ games nights for her non-celebrity friends.
    - She prefers to keep her date nights low-key.
    - She does not want to be a singer because she thinks it’s too much pressure.
    You know what would make accomplishing all those goals SO MUCH EASIER? If she would not be on the cover of Tatler with them calling her ‘2019’s IT GIRL’. I mean, WTF? Is she unaware that anonymity is totally an option??

  4. CherHorowitz says:

    So sofia banged bieber, who then banged kourtney, who had been with scott, who then got with sofia….OKAY THEN

    also i get slightly weird vibes from scott, like why did kourtney never want to marry him? Why is he in his mid thirties scooping up a girl when she’s 19?!

  5. SJD says:

    I’m sorry, what’s this? You think you invented Spoons?!

    • Swack says:

      I was just going to comment on that one. My grandkiddos play Spoons all the time and I used to play it as a child. Also this: ‘I think a lot of people think they have to prove their relationships through social media and I’m just happy being private about my relationship.’ Does she not know what family he is associated with? Girl is using him completely to climb the ladder. I would not have known who she was if she was not dating Disick.

      • Raina says:

        Never heard of a game called Spoons.
        My idea of it is throwing a random spoon at whomever got in my way while I was washing dishes and didn’t help. Not sure that’s SPOONS. More like justice.

        I don’t care they’re dating. He is12, she is 12, Kourtney is 12; these are a bunch of dumb people who hilariously look alike.

        It’s sad when I listen to Lionel Richie now, my ultimate favorite ballad singer. Everytime I hear “Three times a lady” I picture Scott Disick arranging a threesome laughing maniacally with that blaring in the background.

      • Swack says:

        @Raina – Spoons is a card game. Here is the gist of it:

        How to Play Spoons

        Deal each player four cards. With the remaining cards, form a stack. To begin a game, the first player takes a card from the deck and places it into his hand. He or she decides whether to keep this card or not. He or she quickly discards one card from his hand and passes it, face down, to the next person in the circle (in clockwise order).

        The goal to try to get 4 of a kind. Once a person gets 4 of the same rank of card, he or she is now eligible to grab a spoon from the middle. Once anyone takes a spoon from the middle, the rest of the players can now grab a spoon, even if they don’t yet have four of a kind. In order not to lose, you must grab a spoon in time. The last player (the one who was not successful in getting a spoon) loses and must leave the circle. Decrease the number of spoons by one and repeat this process until there is only one winner left.

        It’s a fun game.

    That second insta pic is so gross. It definitely shows just how young she is.

    The dating circle thing is really weird. Maybe they date among each other because everybody accepts it? Because not every dating pool in Hollywood is that messy. I am pretty sure Brie larson would not go for J.Law’s ex for example. There is a reason why they always date same people, I am not sure what it is though.

    • Ref7 says:

      She looks like she could be his kid.

    • Sigh... says:

      That 2nd pic is so ridic, it’s kinda funny. It looks like already tired dad just wants to pick up his daughter from work and go home but they were forced to take a pic by her shift manager, not a “fun/romantic” Valentine’s Day outing.

    • Steff says:

      Easy fame and money. At least Lionel Richie didn’t bribe anyone to put her in college.

  7. Svea says:

    Why say “Kourtney is a pain in the ass?”
    Aside from the loathesome Kardashian thing, I see Kourtney dealing with a first-active then recovering alcoholic and womanizer. Mainly I think she wants him to be an involved father for the sake of her kids.

    • ItReallyIsYou,NotMe says:

      Exactly what I was coming here to say.

    • Tootsie45 says:

      THANK YOU. Regardless of whether you like/dislike Kourtney, I think it’s pretty clear that she’s the one who’s been providing those kids with stability and parenting throughout this mess. Given the shit Dickdick has pulled I’m actually kinda impressed she lets him anywhere near the kids at all.

  8. Penguen says:

    It’s so nice to see Scott taking the kids out on Valentine’s Day.

  9. Audrey says:

    Couples game nights…right.

  10. bobafelty says:

    She looks like a poor mans Chloe Moretz.

  11. clairej says:

    I am not sure why she is getting magazine covers. Bizarre

  12. Tootsie45 says:

    This is super judgmental, but I hate how much tweaking you see in this crop of models. I’m all for beauty, but I feel like we aren’t even celebrating beauty anymore, just successful surgery. It’s so boring to look at.

  13. BB says:

    She’s very…average looking.
