Sofia Richie, a source tells HollywoodLife, isn’t surprised that Amelia Hamlin ended her relationship with Scott Disick, saying that she “sympathizes” with the model.
Amelia Hamlin and Scott Disick broke up earlier this week after nearly a year of dating. On the aftermath of his DM controversy between Younes Bendjima and Kourtney Kardashian, the model, 20, reportedly split up with the media personality, 38.
Another ex has now joined the picture: a source exclusively tells HollywoodLife that Scott’s ex Sofia Richie “sympathizes” with Amelia.
“It comes as no surprise to Sofia that Amelia ended their relationship with Scott,” the source claims. “She had a sneaking suspicion that their relationship wouldn’t endure forever due to some of the same challenges she had while they were together.” Sofia’s perception that Scott “never truly got over” his children’s mother was one “hot button” issue, according to the source.
Penelope, 9, Mason, 11, and Reign, 6, are the couple’s children. They split in 2015 after six years of on-again, off-again dating. “Sofia was always cool with Kourtney and went out of her way to bond with her, but she had her suspicions in the back of her mind,” the source continues. “Sofia has a friendly connection with Amelia and has friends in the same circle as her, so she understands her completely.”
Sofia and Scott ended their three-year relationship in August, and Scott began seeing Amelia a few months later. Last month, Kourtney’s ex-boyfriend Younes published private Instagram DMs he claimed were from Scott. Kourtney’s PDA with current boyfriend Travis Barker while on a boat in Italy was questioned in the messages. “Is this chick all right?!????” Scott is said to have written something. “Brooo, I’m not sure what this is. “Right in the heart of Italy.”
Following the rumors of Amelia and Scott’s breakup, a different source previously told HL that while the messages were “the final straw” for the model, her relationship with Scott had been on the rocks for a while. “Things between them were already on the fritz, and regardless of Scott’s DM, this breakup was coming at some point,” the person claimed.
“Before this whole event, Amelia was already thinking about splitting up with him because the relationship had just run its course,” the person continued. “When Amelia learned of the DM, she decided it was time to call it a day… She just wants to get on with her life and enjoy being alone for a while.”
