The reality star, 37, revealed that things had ended with Sofia, 22, his girlfriend of three years, after she gave him an ultimatum to choose between either her or his ex and mother of his children Kourtney Kardashian, 41.

Sofia moved out of Scott’s home during the coronavirus pandemic, which he’d partially attributed to her being tired of the ‘baggage’ that came with dating someone so close to his ex.

While speaking to the famous family, he revealed: ‘She was like, ”I don’t want to share you as a boyfriend with Kourtney”. And then she literally said with an ultimatum, ”You have to choose: Me or Kourtney”.’

Kourtney and Scott split in 2015 but they remain close and co-parent their children Mason, 11, Penelope, eight and Reign, six. Their chequered and complex relationship has kept fans tuned into Keeping With The Kardashians for the past 14 years.

Despite their years of on-off love, he soon found solace in Sofia yet maintained his close friendship with his ex – which appeared to cause issues for Sofia.

Giving forensic insight into the split for the first time, he spoke to the Kardashian clan about the intricacies of the break-up and Kourtney’s participation.  

He said: ‘Life gets really weird when you’re living with someone, and your world just gets so small. It definitely did create a problem between Sofia and I and I think we kind of saw some things in each other that weren’t us being on the same page.’

He admitted that he’d told Sofia taking care of Kourtney was one of his priorities, and that made Sofia feel insecure, as though she wasn’t as important to him.

He told Kourtney: ‘When you first get with someone, everyone is like making changes and oh I will do anything because I’m so happy and so in love and so excited but then when it sinks in and it becomes real life it’s a lot different’.

He then wondered about his future with Kourtney. 

‘I don’t know,’ he said to his ex. ‘Are we just gonna grow old, just traveling the world with the kids, living one house down from each other, or together at one point?’

Kourtney privately observed that it was Scott’s choice to prioritize what he wished, but that they should each make sacrifices for new relationships.

‘I appreciate that he prioritizes me,’ Kourtney said in a confessional. ‘But I think the biggest thing is that I want him to prioritize himself.’

Her sister Khloe Kardashian, 36, later asked Scott about his status with Sofia and he revealed they were going to give it another shot.  

He told Khloe that Sofia explained why she felt insecure and admitted that she liked to be the ‘center of attention’ in his life and was the ‘last person’ who received attention from him.  

Priorities straight: ‘I appreciate that he prioritizes me,’ Kourtney said in a confessional. ‘But I think the biggest thing is that I want him to prioritize himself’

‘I totally understand where she’s coming from and she totally deserves to have more attention,’ Scott said.

The Kardashians sympathized with Sofia. Matriarch Kris Jenner gave her insight while relaxing poolside in Malibu with Corey Gamble, Khloe, Kim and Kendall. 

She said: ‘It’s gotta be a lot for somebody her age to be dating Scott, he has three kids and the drama of Kourtney. Over time, that would be hard to handle…

‘I’ve thought about that. That would be hard for me. Most women wouldn’t put up with that.’

‘If I was in Sofia’s shoes I would be like, this is absolutely not normal and I can’t take it,’ Kim agreed. ‘In Kourtney’s shoes, I still think there should be a bit more structure. I love how open they are, but it’s as if they’re together, but no sexual anything.’ 

The Kardashians all felt that Scott was ‘hanging on’ to Kourtney, and sure enough things ‘took a turn’ for him after he gave Sofia one more chance on July Fourth.

‘She just started wanting to push Kourtney out,’ he told Kim and Khloé, adding that he’d then reiterated how important his children and the Kardashians were to him.

‘She was like, ”I don’t want to share you as a boyfriend with Kourtney”,’ Scott recounted. ‘And then she literally said with an ultimatum, ”You have to choose: Me or Kourtney”.’

‘It just became an impossible relationship to keep carrying on with,’ he concluded.

In a confessional, Scott added that he would never surrender his relationship with Kourtney saying ‘nothing in a million years will be worth what we have.’

He added that the ‘right person’ for either one of them would realize their relationship was a plus. Scott recently started dating Amelia Hamlin, 19.

Sofia was 19 when she began dating Scott and before that he was linked to Bella Thorne when she was also 19. 

Kourtney and Scott began dating in 2006 – the year before KUWTK launched – after meeting at Girls Gone Wild founder Joe Francis’ house in Mexico. 

In 2008, the couple briefly split when Kourtney discovered Scott was texting another woman, listed in his phone as ‘My Wife’, however they reconciled a year later.

The following year, Kourtney announced she was expecting the couple’s first child after she forgot to take her birth control. 

She delightedly gushed at the time: ‘I love being pregnant. I feel like it’s going by too fast. It is the best thing that’s happened to me. It’s such a spiritual thing happening in your body, and it’s what your body is made for.’

After Mason’s arrival in December 2009, the couple hit trouble the following August when Scott’s partying spiralled out of control and he famously punched a mirror in an episode of Kourtney & Khloé Take Miami, causing the demise of their romance. 

Again, the couple reconciled and in April 2011, in the first season of Kourtney and Kim Take New York, he is seen shopping for an engagement ring however she is clearly resistant to marriage, thus thwarting any hope of marriage.

Over dinner, Kourtney told a dejected Scott: ‘Why mess it up? I just feel like right now I’m happy with the way things are.’ 

In November, they revealed they were expecting Penelope, with Scott saying: ‘It wasn’t like we weren’t trying. We kind of just said, ‘If it’s meant to be, it’ll be.” The welcomed their daughter in July 2012. 

In 2013, both Scott’s parents, Bonnie and Jeffrey Disick, passed away within three months of one another. In July the next year, the couple revealed they were expecting their third child and confirmed the pregnancy was planned.

July 2015 saw the couple split once again – this time for good – when pictures emerged of Scott with his ex-girlfriend Chloe Bartoli in Monte Carlo.

Following their permanent split, Scott and Kourtney have gone on to enjoy romances with a legion of other partners yet their close friendship has prevailed.   

Speaking about their co-parenting arrangement, Scott said: ‘Just because their mother and I couldn’t make it as a perfect, romantic couple shouldn’t have anything to do with the kids…

‘They don’t deserve our mistakes, so we figured out a way. We still need to be as honest and as good to each other as if we were together. Let’s raise these children together and that’s it.’
