Scott Disick And Sofia Richie Are Still Together And People Are Mad
And now we're mad at those people
Scott Disick and Sofia Richie celebrated Scott's birthday on May 27 and the pair made it clear they are still very much a couple. That's of interest, to us anyway, and for a couple of reasons. Firstly, because Sofia Richie is SOFIA RICHIE and same same for Scott Disick -- who is perhaps best known as the former partner and baby daddy of one Kourtney Kardashian.
But aside from them both being celebrities of a sort, the main point of interest in this couple is because there's a fairly significant age difference between the two. Scott is a 35 year old father of three. Sofia is still a teenager -- only just, she's 19 -- but the fact remains. Teenager.
In case anyone out there doubted whether they were still madly in love Sofia took to Instagram to make it very clear. First of all the image was of the two wrapped in one another's arms while standing in the most extraordinary emerald green water.
"Happy birthday babe," shared Sofia. "Thank you for being you. Love you."
Sofia, and yes, she's Lionel's little girl and the step-sister of Nicole, did not mention where the pair were celebrating but it's since been revealed that the snap was taken in St Barts.
It didn't take long for the image to attract a LOT of attention. It very quickly garnered more than 450,000 likes and also close to 3500 comments. And it was the comments that really caught our attention.
There were a swag of comments from friends and complete strangers. What a gift is social media eh -- where else would folk you've never ever met and likely never ever will meet feel free to share their thoughts about you with you? But we digress.
A lot of people seemed utterly stunned that the two were still together. And a lot more were very unhappy with that age gap. Others felt that this was a tad hypocritical given that Kourtney Kardashian, Scott's baby mama, has been in a relationship with 24-year-old model Younes Bendjima for the past 12 months or so. You see Kourtney is wait for it ... 39 years old.
Still ... as the image above shows only too, too well, she may be a 39 year old mama of three but hell. Woman is no slouch in the looks department. Bottom line, does age really matter?
Does any of it? Surely, if people are happy that's what counts? Maybe, what's more important, is why we care at all? To be frank, we're not so sure that we do. Not really. But we do actually care about people being happy -- together or alone -- and on that note we'd like to say congrats to Scott and Sofia and Kourtney and Younes too. Finding someone you love who loves you right back? Nothing to bitch about there. Age gap or not.
