Scott Disick has been romantically linked to Sofia Richie for several months now -- since last May, actually, so it's coming up on a year since we first learned that these two could be together.
And oh, what a wild year it's been ...
Last January, after piles and piles of rumors that he'd finally gotten himself together and that he and Kourtney Kardashian were giving love another chance, he went off the deep end.
He was partying hard for several months with several different ladies, including Bella Thorne -- remember how fun and weird that was?
In May, Scott was photographed looking pretty friendly with Sofia, but at the time she denied anything beyond friendship, tweeting "Just so everyone can get their panties out of their asses, Scott and I are just homies."
At some point though, things changed, and it became clear around September that they actually were dating.
Scott has gotten a lot of criticism for dating Sofia because of their age difference: she's 19 years old, and he's 34.
And in this new sneak peek for the upcoming episode of Keeping Up with the Kardashians, Kris Jenner herself is questioning that age difference.
And it is weird.
The clip begins with Kris asking Scott if he's dating, and when he says that he is, she asks if he's dating one specific person.
He hesitates a little before saying that he is, and Kris asks him if he's "going steady" with this person.
"I guess that's what the kids are calling it," he confirms, looking and sounding like he's rather be having literally any other conversation.
"Is it Sofia?" she asks, mouthing her name since it sounds like the kids are nearby.
"I mean, I guess you know who it is," he answers.
It sounds like a pretty tame conversation, but looking at Scott, you'd think talking about Sofia with Kris causes him real, physical pain.
Next, she asks how old Sofia is, and if she's Kylie's age -- she's not, Kylie's a year older.
Then Kris tells Scott that when she began dating Robert Kardashian, she was only 17 years old, and he was 12 years older than her.
"You were underage," he tells her. "She's not."
Why is Scott being so weird about this?! Is it because Kris is Kourtney's mother and he actually still has feelings for Kourtney, even more than he's already admitted?
Is it just an awkward conversation, no matter how you look at it?
Watch Scott die inside while talking to Kris in the video below:

Lydia McLaughlin has an announcement to make.
And it's an announcement you may have heard her make before.
The Real Housewives of Orange County cast member took to her official blog on Friday and confirmed that she will no longer be a Real Housewives of Orange County cast member
"RHOC has given me a great platform and I'm grateful for that. However, I feel like I can only handle this show one season at a time," McLaughlin wrote online, adding:
"I need a break! There is a lot of good that comes from the show, but also a lot of negativity.
"After a family vote, it was unanimous that I should take a break. Sometimes the people who love us the most see things even we don't see.
"I trust my path and I'm excited for what the future holds."
Indeed, McLaughlin initially joined this Bravo franchise in season 8.
She departed the cable network hit just before season 9, yet returned last year as a full-time cast member for season 12.
Earlier this year, it was also reported that Meghan King Edmonds would not return to Orange County for next season.
She swears this was her decision.
And McLaughlin insists the same.
"Bravo and Evolution have been amazing to me and I have made great friendships," she continued on her blog, expounding:
"I treasure all my fans and appreciate all the love and support.
"I've been honored to be a source of entertainment and inspiration to all of you and I hope to continue spreading light and love.
"Being a full time mom to THREE little boys, publisher of NOBLEMAN Magazine, blogger, jewelry designer, author, and wife, I have a lot going on!
"I will continue to share my life and faith and use this platform to be a lightworker."
In other words: we haven't heard the last from Lydia McLaughlin.
We've just seen the last of her on Bravo.
McLaughlin and her husband, Doug, have three kids:
These children, Doug and even McLaughlin's mother have been featured on The Real Housewives of Orange County at various points.
We don't know just when when season 13 will air, but it's clear the cast will look a bit different whenever that date arrives.
Any suggestions for women who should fill these two open slots?

We think it's fair to say that Celebrity Big Brother has brought the drama throughout its first week on the air.
We've had Brandi Glanville causing trouble, Omarosa wailing to Ross Matthews about how she would never vote for Donald Trump again and a big twist that allowed the head of household to be overthrown.
The first big event of the episode was the Power of Veto competition, and if you've been keeping up with our Big Brother spoilers, you will already know how that played out.
Keshia, James, and Chuck were players by default. Mark and Ari were picked by random draw, and Keshia chose Shannon to help her try and keep the nominations the same.
Omarosa was tasked with hosting the competition that found the houseguests spelling the biggest word. Shannon emerged as the winner, successfully spelling out "responsibilities."
That means Shannon won the first two competitions of the season and needs to dial it back a little if she has any hope of making it much further.
Proving to be a competition beast in week one can be detrimental to your place in the game. It's a good thing Shannon is in that all-female alliance because they should all keep each other safe.
James and Ari came in the last place in the competition, so they had to wear baby costumes for 48 hours. They came to play Big Baby, it seems.
The nominations were kept the same, meaning James or Chuck would be going home. This meant James was the likely one to go, but there were some last-minute discussions that made everyone question the target.
Eviction One Votes:
By a vote of 7-1, Chuck was the first houseguest evicted from Celebrity Big Brother!
He was furious, but it was a last-minute blindside that will likely come back to haunt some of the players.
Omarosa voting to evict James seemed like a strategic move to cause some unrest in the all-female alliance. It seems a bit early to be doing that, but we all knew she would be causing as much trouble as possible.
The power is back up for grabs, and we cannot wait to see who has been crowned the next HOH. The results and should be announced today at some point.
What do you think of the results?

Big Brother continues Sunday on CBS.

Reg E. Cathey, a veteran actor likely best known to television fans for roles in House of Cards and The Wire, died this week from lung cancer.
He was 59 years old.
According to TMZ sources, Cathey was surrounded by friends, family members and loved ones at the time of his passing, which took place at his home in New York.
It's unclear at the moment for how long Cathey had been battling his illness.
The Wire creator David Simon confirmed Cathey's death on Twitter, leaving the following statement along with a photo of the veteran star:
Reg Cathey, 1958-2018. Not only a fine, masterful actor -- but simply one of the most delightful human beings with whom I ever shared some long days on set.
On wit alone, he could double any man over and leave him thinking. Reg, your memory is a great blessing.
Cathey was nominated for Outstanding Guest Actor in a Drama Series in 2014, 2015 and 2016, each time for his portrayal Freddy Hayes on HBO's House of Cards.
The character was the owner of a rib restaurant that provided the Kevin Spacey's Frank Underwood a sanctuary and secret hideout.
He won this Emmy Award in 2015.
On Season 4 of The Wire - generally considered to be the legendary drama's best - he played Norman Wilson, a reporter-turned-political operative who consulted with Tommy Carcetti as the latter quickly rose to prominence up in Maryland politics.
Cathey also played a part on The Corner, Simon's predecessor to The Wire on HBO.
A native of Alabama, Cathey's big screen resume included roles in Fantastic Four and Se7en.
In response to this sad news, House of Cards creator Beau Willimon said the following on Friday evening:
Reg Cathey was one of a kind. Brimming with life force, generosity, humor, gravitas and a fountain of talent.
Loved by everyone lucky enough know him and work with him. He will be greatly missed. Rest In Peace, Reg.
Having been in the business for so long, Cathey was mourned on social media by a wide range of actors from both the TV and movie worlds.
Mike Colter: Go gentle into that good night my brother. It was an honor spending time with you on set. Getting to know you as a person and an artist. You will be missed. Condolences to your family. I salute you.
Michael McKean: Reg Cathey was my friend and my wife's friend and a great actor. I am very very sad. RIP, Reg.
Bobby Cannavale: We lost a sweet, sweet man and a sweet, sweet, SWEET artist today. Rest In Power, Reg E. Cathey We will miss you.
Chandra Thomas: Absolutely heartbroken. Reg, miss your brilliance, sharp wit and gracious love for your Cheremio beyond words....
Our thoughts go out to the family of Reg E. Cathey.
May he rest in peace.

Essentially, the Duggars are famous for two things - being very fertile and being very religious.
The two conditions are inextricably linked, of course, as only people who believe they'll go to eternal hell if they use condoms would subject themselves to the temporary hell of raising 19 children.
Just kidding, Duggars!
Anyway, it seems Jill Duggar is proving to be an unexpected rebel in more ways than one.
Not only has she yet to sire an entire baseball team's worth of children (complete with full pitching staff and designated hitters), but fans think she might be turning her back on her faith.
In a recent Instagram post, Jill revealed that she's currently reading a book with the rather ambitious title of The Story of Reality.
"Wow! I'm not even finished with this book yet and it's so good! Just read chapters 13-15 today. If you've ever wondered #whydoesgodallowsuffering or you've stopped believing in God then you've gotta read this book!" Jill wrote.
"I could never give up on God, our father," one user wrote, apparently under the impression that Jill was questioning her faith.
"He is the reason we are all here, on the earth he made. You just need to remember to believe in him."
At one point a user who identified herself as an atheist congratulated Jill on opening herself up to new ideas.
Needless to say, the situation threw some of Jill's more pious followers for a loop.
"This is a Christian book and how everything in the world ties in with God. People are making ignorant assumptions and haven't even bothered to learn what this book is about," one user argued.
Indeed, according to a description on the book's Amazon page, The Story of Reality makes an argument for "Christianity as a true story of how the world began."
So relax, folks - it appears that Jill has no intention of deviating from the belief system she was raised with.
But that's not stopping the debate from raging on Jill's Instagram page.
For some of her followers, the most interesting part of Jill's latest post has nothing to do with her beliefs, and everything to do with to do the most compelling word in the book's title - reality.
When Derick Dillard attacked Jazz Jennings on Twitter, he launched his tirade by accusing the teen of starring in "a reality show that promotes an unreality."
Derick was fired by TLC for his harassment, and some former fans couldn't resist the opportunity to remind Jill of her family's latest scandal:
"The Reality is that your homophobic husband got fired from the show! Perfect outcome!" wrote one IG user.

The Kardashians are all about "the power of family." Apparently, that sentiment doesn't quite extend to the Jenner side of things.
The whole world has known that Kylie Jenner was pregnant since September. Presumably, her family knew a while before that.
Brody Jenner, Kylie's own brother? Says that he didn't even know that she was pregnant for part of the pregnancy. Did he learn about it on the news?
Kylie Jenner's pregnancy was a "secret," in that she did not confirm it or show her baby bump.
But it was also not a secret, in that the whole dang world learned about it on September 22nd, 2017. The news was so memorable that I didn't even have to look that up.
There's no telling who leaked Kylie's pregnancy news, whether it was Kris Jenner, or an untrustworthy friend, or even Kris Jenner.
But Kylie resolved to keep it all under lock and key until her due date, February 4th.
That Sunday, Kylie revealed the birth of her baby girl to the world and apologized to fans for keeping them in the dark -- more or less.
But it turns out that those fans weren't the only ones whom Kylie didn't exactly rush to tell her good news.
Brody Jenner may have a different mother and be 14 years older than Kylie, but they're still siblings -- through Caitlyn Jenner.
Speaking to TMZ, though, Brody reveals that he was totally out of the loop and unaware of Kylie's pregnancy.
"Well, to be honest, I didn't even know she was pregnant for the entire pregnancy."
It's not entirely clear whether he's saying that it was a while before he learned of Kylie's pregnancy ... or whether he's saying that it literally wasn't until Kylie gave birth that he learned of it.
The latter ... was he under a rock?
"Now I found out and would love to see her."
Kylie's been coy about some of the details of her daughter, to be sure.
At first, she left fans guessing about the name of her newborn daughter.
Some fans believed that the child's name would be either "Butterfly" or "Mariposa," based upon the recurring butterfly motif in Kylie's pregnancy video.
The camera zooms in on Kylie's butterfly necklace and later reveals a nursery covered in butterflies.
It was two days later when Kylie revealed her daughter's name: Stormi Webster.
How bad must things be between these siblings if Brody wasn't among the first to know?
Brody says that he and Kylie actually have a good relationship.
Though ... he also shares that he and Kylie haven't hung out in two years.
That's not too uncommon for siblings who may work separately or live in different states. But, if the relationship is good, they usually still keep in touch and at least let the other know when their uterus is manufacturing a life form.
It's difficult to tell if Brody is trying to put a nice face on things, is he clueless to how distant he and Kylie are, or is his definition of "good" simply "not feuding."
Keep in mind that Kylie's friends and their families knew about Kylie's baby bump. She had a baby shower. She flew to Houston and saw Travis Scott's family.
Brody does make the excuse that Kylie's been "incredibly busy." You know, she's a makeup mogul whose brand could be worth a billion dollars in about 5 years.
Now that Kylie's a mom to little baby Stormi, Kylie's going to be even busier.
Could it be that tensions between Kylie's Kardashian sisters and Caitlyn have caused a strain between Kylie and her Jenner siblings (who aren't Kendall)?
Or is Brody just clueless and out of the loop?
We just don't know. Here's what we do know:

Rob Delaney is a well-known comedian, most recently recognized for his role as co-creator, writer, and actor on Catastrophe. He's also known for his humorous political observations on Twitter.
Now, however, Delaney is taking to social media to share grim news of a very personal nature.
His very young son, Henry, has passed away at two-and-a-half years old. Heartbreaking.
On Friday, February 9th, Rob Delaney took to Facebook to share a post that must have been astonishingly difficult to write:
"I have very sad news. My two and a half year year old son Henry has passed away."
"Henry had been diagnosed with a brain tumor in 2016, shortly after his first birthday, following persistent vomiting and weight loss."
Horrible at any age. Unspeakable when it's happening to a baby.
"He had surgery to remove the tumor and further treatment through the early part of 2017."
Unfortunately, that did not fully resolve the problem.
"Then the cancer returned last autumn and he died in January."
"My wife and Henry's older brothers and I are devastated of course."
"Henry was a joy. He was smart, funny, and mischievous and we had so many wonderful adventures together, particularly after he'd moved home following fifteen months living in hospitals."
Henry had just started his life anew, it seems.
"His tumor and surgery left him with significant physical disabilities, but he quickly learned sign language and developed his own method of getting from A to B shuffling on his beautiful little bum."
Children can be amazingly resourceful in the face of overwhelming obstacles.
"His drive to live and to love and to connect was profound."
"I am astonished by the love-in-action displayed by Henry's mom and his brothers."
And he credits them with giving him purpose as he goes on.
"They are why I will endeavor to not go mad with grief."
This is perhaps a reference to Rob Delaney's struggle as an alcoholic. He has been sober for 16 years this month.
"I don't want to miss out on their beautiful lives. I'm greedy for more experiences with them."
That is such a healthy sentiment.
"The NHS nurses and doctors and the home carers and charity workers who helped our family survive Henry's illness will be my heroes until the day I die. I am desperately sad right now, but I can say with authority that there is good in this world."
Rob Delaney is American but currently lives in London.
"If you'd like to help other families in the UK with very sick children, please make a donation to Rainbow Trust (https://rainbowtrust.org.uk) or Noah's Ark (https://www.noahsarkhospice.org.uk) in Henry's name or in the name of someone you love."
Hospice is sad enough, but hospice services for children is ... bleak. Such services need all of the resources that they can get.
"Our family would be in much worse shape right now if it weren't for them. I would also urge you to take concrete and sustained action to support the NHS, however you can. Do not take it for granted."
The NHS, the UK's single-payer healthcare system, comes under attack by politicians who -- like those who oppose Obamacare in the US -- seek to dismantle universal health services.
Rob Delaney ends his heartbreaking post with a plea.
"Finally, I ask that you respect my family's privacy regarding this matter. I have nothing else to say that I haven't said here."
Of course. What could anyone ask beyond what he has shared? Why would anyone want to force him to speak about this?
"Thank you, beautiful Henry, for spending as much time with us as you did. We miss you so much."
Rest in peace, Henry.

Tyga is in the middle of promoting a new album, of this we have no doubt.
But is he also in the process of courting Kylie Jenner?
This is the question many Internet users are being forced to ponder.
Over the past couple weeks, numerous reports have claimed that the rapper isn't exactly ready to leave his ex-girlfriend alone.
Even though she's now dating Travis Scott.
And even though she just gave birth to Travis Scott's baby.
Toward the end of January, for example, a source alleged that Tyga was desperate to get back together with Kylie.
And even more recently, an insider claimed that Tyga is demanding a paternity test because he thinks he may be Stormi Webster's biological father.
(We're not sure here which is funnier: that rumor... or the name Stormi Webster.)
Tyga, meanwhile, has been updating his Instagram page frequently over the past several days.
Nearly every post includes a photo of himself and a mysterious caption, one that some believe was written with Jenner in mind.
All I wanted was to talk to u, Tyga wrote along with the image above.
Pretty straightforward, right? Pretty clear how some could interpret this as a message to Kylie, no?
The artist does, of course, also include the hashtags "#Temperature #Kyoto" with each caption, referring to his first single off the upcoming album and the album itself, respectively.
So there's clearly a push at work here for followers to get psyched to hear new Tyga music.
But the semi-talented rapper also wrote the following as a caption to the second picture shared above:
I been waitin right here, Still I been everywhere.
Those words seem like they truly could apply to Kylie.
As cited in this very article, there's been constant chatter that Tyga is just waiting for Jenner's relationship with Scott to fall apart; waiting to swoop in and be right there for the supposed love of his life.
Finally, Tyga asks a question along with this third image.
Is this what u need to feel better?
This one is a little more vague.
Does Kylie need a shirtless Tyga staring intensely at her right now in order to feel better?
Probably not. She probably just needs a good night's sleep, considering the patterns of a newborn and everything.
Tyga and Kylie dated for about two years prior to breaking in late 2016.
Said Jenner during a scene from her terrible E! reality show last summer:
"There was absolutely not one thing wrong with me and T. Him and I will always, always have a bond. There was no crazy fight.
"We just decided, well, I decided that I'm really young.
"I don't want to look back five years from now and feel like he took something from me when he's really not that type of person."
And the split has seemed amicable. Neither side has bashed the other in public or anything.
But could Tyga now be trying to win the 20-year old back? Or might he just be posting non-Kylie related song lyrics into which we're reading way too much?
It's hard to say.

Way back in 2015, Teen Mom stars Leah Messer and Jeremy Calvert got divorced.
Fortunately, it seems that in the years since, they've been able to work out an amicable arrangement that works for both of them.
By which we mean, not only are they co-parents, they've also been friends with benefits for quite some time.
Or at least that's what Leah allegedly said during her recent appearance on co-star Kailyn Lowry's podcast.
The episode hasn't been released to the public yet, but a source who was on hand for the taping has already spilled some details about Leah's comments regarding her ex:
"She revealed she and Jeremy have been hooking up, and that it is not going to stop anytime soon," the insider tells Radar Online.
When Kailyn expressed concern, Leah reportedly put her mind at ease:
"She says that they are just having fun and she's got it all under control," says the insider.
Rumors of Leah and Jeremy getting back together have been circulating for months, but this is the first time that either of them has publicly admitted to being more than friends.
Of course, from the sound of Leah's comments, it doesn't seem that she and Jeremy will be embarking on a relationship anytime soon.
They seem to be sticking with a "no strings attached" arrangement, which is fine as both of them are single these days.
In fact, as far as we know, Leah hasn't been in a serious relationship in quite some time.
Jeremy, on the other hand, broke up with Brooke Wehr for the 47th time back in September and has been quite busy in the months since.
In November, he announced that he had broken up with a girlfriend that we weren't even aware of!
(Pro tip: If you never went public with your relationship, you don't have to publicly announce your breakup.)
So Leah and Jeremy are both free to mingle as they see fit.
Of course, Leah seems to get attached easily, and when there's a kid involved, there's always the potential that things could get very messy.
But hey, we guess Leah wouldn't be entering her second decade as a reality star if she weren't a magnet for drama.
Watch Teen Mom 2 online for more from Ms. Messer's messy existence.
