A source told E! News that the 35-year-old is extremely relieved that his ex called it quits with her 25-year-old model boyfriend because he didn’t think they were a good match.
The insider dished:
“Scott is very happy Kourtney cut it off with Younes. Although he is happy in his relationship with Sofia, he never liked Younes for Kourtney.”
Why didn’t he like them together? Because Scott thought Younes was too young for the KUWTK star. No, really!
Of course, the father of three eventually started dating 19-year-old Sofia Richie and, according to a second source, realized that “age is just a number.”
But Scott was still apparently “looking for any reason to not like Younes” because he “never trusted” him. The second source explained:
“In the beginning, Scott was making fun of Kourtney for dating someone so young and saying it would never last. Once he got with Sofia, he couldn’t say anything about Younes. It gave him a lot of perspective and understanding that age is just a number. It was hard for him to see Kourtney dating and he was looking for any reason to not like Younes. But since being with Sofia, he has moved on. Scott cares a lot less than he used to. Of course, Kourtney has a very special place in his heart and always will. He wants Kourtney to be happyâ€¦ He’s not surprised to see what has happened with Younes. He never trusted him or liked him at all.”
We guess it takes a cheater to spot a (alleged) cheater?
Kourtney and Younes started dating in late 2016; it was Kourtney’s longest relationship since her breakup from Scott in July 2015.
Though Scott is still happily with Sofia, he and Kourtney are in a good place and he doesn’t plan on changing that. The first source added:
“Scott and Kourtney are in a cordial place right now. Scott is always resistant to rock the boat with Kourtney. He truly will always care about her as wants her to be happy. Everything is always better for the kids’ sake, when they are in a good place.”
Sounds like dating a teenager has made him grow up a little bit!
