Sofia Richie, Jayden Smith beach outing sparks dating rumors
Photos of Richie and Smith show them laughing, hugging, and holding hands. But a source said that while the two seem a bit flirty, they are not exclusively dating.
“They’re hanging out a lot and things have gotten quite flirty. They’re not exclusive yet, and Sofia’s keeping her options open, but things are heading in that direction,” the source said.
Sofia Richie enjoys being single after Scott Disick split
The insider said that it’s not surprising if Richie wants to take some time before jumping into another relationship. After all, she and Scott Disick just called it quits last month.
Richie and Disick first split in May after the latter checked him into a rehab facility. But on Jul 4, they, reportedly, got back together. By mid-August, sources confirmed that their relationship is over for good.
“Sofia feels reborn again and wishes she left Scott ages ago. But she’s trying not to dwell too much,” the source said.
Sofia’s, Jayden’s parents supportive of their budding relationship
Since Sofia Richie and Smith are friends, the former, allegedly, sought comfort from the latter after her spit from Disick.
The insider also claimed that Richie and Smith already have their parents’ support if they decided to get into a relationship.
“Not only is he age-appropriate, but he’s making Sofia smile again,” the source said.
Did Kim Kardashian, Kris Jenner encourage Scott to break up with Sofia?
As of late, Richie and Smith have not yet commented on the real status of their relationship. As such, one should still take the claims made by the tabloid with a grain of salt.
Star is known for concocting dubious stories about Richie and Smith. In June, the tabloid claimed that the Kardashian-Jenner clan urged Disick to end his relationship with the model.
“As well-meaning as Sofia is, she’s too young to be dealing with the headspace he’s in. Kris and Kim suggested he take a break from her – and he took their advice,” the source said.
The insider also said that Disick’s ex-girlfriend, Kourtney Kardashian is the only one that knows him inside and out. So, the fact that she’s in his corner is more than enough for Disick.
However, it is unlikely for the Kardashians to have meddled in Sofia Richie and Disick’s relationship. The couple’s decision to split was entirely theirs.
