SCOTT Disick and Sofia Richie are "on a break" as the Keeping Up With the Kardashians star focuses on his mental health.
The pair have decided to give Scott time to "get better and focus on work" but sources close to the former couple have revealed that Sofia, 21, has told him he "has to prove himself."
“Scott and Sofia are on a break until Scott straightens himself out more,” a source tells Us Weekly.
“Scott is in an OK place right now and is trying to get better and focus on work, but he has to prove himself.”
The pair began dating in 2018, after Scott ended his long-term romance with Kourtney Kardashian, the mother of his three children.
Scott shocked fans when he checked in to rehab and then returned early, after an alleged privacy breach.
A source close to the KUWTK star, 36, previously confirmed to The Sun that he was undergoing treatment for a substance abuse issue at a facility.
Sofia and Scott haven't been seen together since.
The source said: "He voluntarily checked himself in, because he knew he needed help."
However, he checked out on May 4 amid claims his privacy was breached in the Colorado treatment center.
The Daily Mail reported he had been drinking heavily and using cocaine while under quarantine during the coronavirus pandemic.
Scott's lawyer Marty Singer has denied allegations of cocaine and alcohol abuse.
The attorney said: "In an effort to finally come to terms and deal with the pain that Scott has been silently suffering for many years due to the sudden death of his mother, followed by the death of his father three months later, Scott made the decision to check himself into a rehab facility last week to work on his past traumas."
In October 2013, his mother Bonnie Disick tragically passed away after a long-term illness.
Just three months later, Scott's dad Jeffery died for unknown reasons.
On Keeping Up With the Kardashians last month, fans saw a rare glimpse at the real estate mogul's emotional side when he teared up while talking about his late parents.
Scott invited his dad's best friend "Uncle Dave" to his Calabasas mansion so his three kids – Mason, 10, Penelope, 7, and 5-year-old Reign – could learn about their paternal grandparents.
"Losing my parents is not an easy subject for me to talk about, It puts me in a very vulnerable place, to remember them and think about them," he said during a confessional on the show.
