Teenager Sofia Richie 'smitten' with Scott Disick, 34, as romance speculation grows

Back in May, Sofia Richie denied speculation that she is romantically involved with 34-year-old Scott Disick, with the 19-year-old daughter of Lionel Richie insisting that she was just friends with the Keeping Up With The Kardashians’ reality star.

However, relationship rumours have continued to grow between the two, with insiders now claiming that the teen model is “smitten” with the father-of-three, who split from Kourtney Kardashian in 2015 after 10 years together.

Speaking to People, a source said: “Scott and Sofia are inseparable. They are spending every day together. Sofia seems smitten.

“It’s obvious that she looks up to Scott. She constantly giggles around him. They are very flirty.

“Scott takes care of her, opens the car door and pays for everything.”

After she and Scott were papped cuddling on a yacht in Cannes four months ago, Sofia tweeted: “Just so everyone can get their panties out of their a*ses, Scott and I are just homies.”

However, they have since been spotted spending time together in Las Vegas and Malibu, with the two seeming increasingly close.

Scott was previously linked to 19-year-old actress Bella Thorne, with the Internet going into meltdown when Scott was papped seemingly groping Bella’s breast before being pictured with an ex just hours later.

It was reported at the time that Bella had been left feeling “used” by Scott, however, she later claimed that she’d decided to step away from Scott’s wild lifestyle – even defending the infamous picture.

Speaking of the snap, Bella said: “Honestly, my nipple came out of my bikini and he tried to fix it for me and it looks like he’s grabbing my boob.”

Scott shot to fame in ex-girlfriend Kourtney’s family reality show back in 2007.

Together, he and Kourtney have seven-year-old Mason, five-year-old Penelope, and two-year-old Reign, with the pair remaining on good terms for the sake of their children.
