It's been four years since Kourtney Kardashian and Scott Disick ended their relationship, but the exes are still very involved in one another's lives.
This is mainly due to the fact that they're raising three kids together and continue to co-star on a reality show, but those aren't the only reasons Kourt and Scott have remained so close.
Disick and Kardashian still regard one another with mutual respect and affection, and while it's great that their kids don't have to deal with bickering parents, this unusual closeness can create problems of its own.
For example, when Scott started dating Sofia Richie, Kourtney reportedly disapproved of the relationship.
This wasn't a result of jealousy, but rather Kourtney's concern that Sofia was misrepresenting her feelings toward Scott.
Kourt eventually came to accept the new woman in her baby daddy's life, and these days she even tags along on vacations with Sofia and Scott.
But now, the situation has once again been thrown into turmoil thanks to Scott's alleged feud with Younes Bendjima.
Despite having broken up several times in the past, Kourtney and Younes are reportedly back together.
Sources say Kourt's entire inner circle is upset about the reconciliation, including Scott.
And this time, it seems he's the one who's worried that his parenting partner is being used and exploited by a younger love interest.
“Scott can’t stand Younes, but he’s not going to tell Kourtney what to do," one insider tells Us Weekly.
"He’s moved on with his life and so has she.”
The source adds that Kourtney has assured Scott and company that she and Younes are not officially back together ... yet.
But since the two of them have been spotted on multiple date nights in the past two weeks, her loved ones believe it's only a matter of time.
“Younes has been pursuing Kourtney for months and would love to get back with her," says the insider.
"They’ve hooked up a couple of times but Kourtney’s keeping her options open."
The informant adds that Kourtney still has "major trust issues" regarding Younes, and he's the one who's interested in giving their relationship another shot, not her.
“He’s more into her than she’s into him and they’re not in an exclusive relationship or anything like that," says the source.
So it sounds like Kourtney is keeping Younes at arm's length ... for now.
But the young model has broken down her resistance several times in the past.
Sounds like now would be a good time for Scott and Sofia to whisk Kourt away on another Costa Rican vacation!
