In the months since Scott Disick and Sofia Richie finally, officially broke up (after many temporary separations), the former couple seemed to remain on friendly terms with one another.
That’s all changed now that another model has entered the chat.
According to a new report from E! News, Scott appears to be dating Bella Banos, a fashion industry vet who has a lot in common with Sofia.
They’re both young (Sofia is 21; Bella 24); they’re both models on the rise, and they’re both irresistibly drawn to Kourtney Kardashian’s diminutive baby daddy.
Insiders say Scott and Bella are taking things slowly, but they’re definitely more than just friends.
“They have hung out a few times now in the last couple weeks and have been quietly seeing each other,” a source tells the outlet.
“It’s been a fun distraction for Scott and he feels good to be out in the dating game again,” the insider adds.
“Scott doesn’t want anything serious, but they are having fun. He likes Bella’s energy and thinks she has a great personality.”
The couple went to Disick’s favorite restaurant, Nobu, over the weekend, and aside from some minor car trouble, the evening went off without a hitch.
"Scott’s car wouldn’t start and his bodyguard had to get a portable charger jumper to try and get it started," an eyewitness said.
"They spent about 10-15 minutes trying to get the car started."
Well, you don’t shell out for a Ferrari just to have it die on you when you’re taking your new model girlfriend out on the town, but it seems that Scott snd Bella both took the setback in stride.
"She looked great and walked behind Scott as they left the restaurant. At that point, they had the car ready for him to go," the insider added
"They have hung out a few times now in the last couple weeks and have been quietly seeing each other," the source added.
"It’s been a fun distraction for Scott and he feels good to be out in the dating game again. Scott doesn’t want anything serious, but they are having fun," the insider said.
"He likes Bella’s energy and thinks she has a great personality."
Longtime Keeping Up With the Kardashians viewers might remember Bella as the girl who Scott kept stashed in his hotel room during a family trip to Costa Rica in 2017.
“At first, Scott was just my friend,” Banos told In Touch at the time.
“But he got to know me on a different level. We’re super connected. Scott will call and say, ‘I miss you. I want to see you.’ He always flies me to wherever he is. We spend so much time together.”
We guess the attraction between these two is quite strong if they found their way back to each other all these years later.
But while Scott seems to be smitten with Bella, don’t expect him make the relationship Instagram official anytime soon.
"He definitely won’t be committing to anyone, anytime soon," the insider said.
"Scott has been in a really good place focusing on his kids and things are great between him and Kourtney and he wants to keep it this way."
Speaking of Instagram, it seems Sofia used the site to subtly make her feelings on the situation very clear.
Months after she and Scott went their separate ways, she unfollowed him on Instagram this week.
"They’re no longer speaking," a source tells E! News.
And while Scott and Sofia have parted ways and reconciled on several occasions, it seems that this time, the split is for good.
"Scott was very clear with his decision to end things," says an in insider, "and doesn’t see them getting back together again in the future."
So we guess it’s out with the old and in with the new — but this is Scott Disick we’re talking about, so "old" and "new" are both very, very young.
