Sometimes, the best way to win a girl over is to make her laugh. That's how Scott Disick found his way into Sofia Richie's heart. As the daughter of Lionel Richie explained in a recent interview, she fell in love with her reality TV star boyfriend through their shared sense of humor. You know what they say about couples that laugh together, after all.
Love can be simple like that sometimes. These comments, as reported by E!, were made during the launch of Issey Miyake's new fragrances in Los Angeles on Thursday. Scott Disick wasn't seen in attendance, but that doesn't mean the famous couple isn't staying close together.
The couple first became an item last year, and they haven't kept their love affair a secret from the public's gaze. Sofia Richie is known for sharing pictures of her with Scott Disick on her Instagram, and they are often spotted in lavish locales, including Italy and abroad. The last one Richie and Disick shared together was on Valentine's Day, with Richie savoring that special romantic moment by expressing her unwavering love for her boyfriend of several months.
Scott Disick started dating Sofia Richie after breaking up with his previous girlfriend, Kourtney Kardashian, back in 2015. The reality TV couple shared an on-and-off relationship for years, which is a narrative that Keeping Up with the Kardashians and its several spin-offs have covered quite thoroughly. Disick shares three children with his long-term former partner: eight-year-old Mason Dash, five-year-old Penelope Scotland and three-year-old Reign Aston. They were never married, however.
One reason Scott Disick and Kourtney Kardashian had trouble staying together seemingly steamed from Scott's potential substance abuse woes, another subject that has been documented on the reality TV programs. That said, Scott currently shares a seemingly very loving relationship with Sofia Richie, although not everyone is super duper pleased with the 34-year-old reality TV/media star getting so attached to the 19-year-old model.
During a recent interview, Lionel Richie said he doesn't see a bright future for his daughter and her current fling. He went so far as to call it "a phase" in her life, but he claims he's not going to "make too much noise" about the whole thing, even though he wasn't afraid to voice his criticisms about the "Kardashian machine" that Scott Disick is involved with.
Speaking of Kardashians, Kris Jenner also recently grilled Disick about dating Sofia Richie during a recent clip from Keeping Up with the Kardashians. Nevertheless, the heart sometimes wants what it wants. Even if people don't agree. Even if they're receiving their fair share of criticism, at least Scott and Sofia know how to crack each other up. That outta count for something, right?
