Kourtney Kardashian and Scott Disick survived a romantic and occasionally rocky relationship for almost a decade. After having three children together, however, they split after reports that Scott had cheated on the Keeping Up with the Kardashians star with another woman. Since then, Kourtney has repeatedly been linked to pop star Justin Bieber, with the two reportedly hooking up off and on for months.
With photos of Bieber skinny-dipping alongside a hot model almost breaking the internet, how does Kardashian feel about those images of her boy toy, and are they still hooking up? An insider offered Hollywood Life the scoop on the Keeping Up with the Kardashians star’s relationship with the 22-year-old pop music singer.
Comparing Bieber with Orlando Bloom, whose skinny-dipping photos surfaced first, Kourtney is proud of her man’s assets, according to the insider.
“Kourtney has seen Justin’s naked pictures and thinks it’s great that he feels proud of his body.”
Not only does Kardashian believe that Bieber deserves to feel good enough about his body to flaunt it in his birthday suit, she also reportedly feels that Justin’s skinny-dipping pictures are much sexier than Orlando’s images.
“If she had to pick between Orlando and Justin’s naked pics, it would be Justin,” confirmed the insider. “If Justin wants to enjoy himself in Hawaii in the nude, so let it be. Kourt thinks he has a gorgeous, ripped body.”
So what’s the inside scoop on whether Bieber is still hooking up with the reality TV star? Kardashian and Justin are pals, but it’s supposedly not as romantic as before, with the source clarifying that the two enjoy a playful relationship.
“Even though they don’t spend a lot of time together, they have remained really good friends. They love joking with each other,” added the source.
“[Kourtney will] make sure to send [Justin] a message about his sexy nude pic.”
With Kardashian and Bieber staying in touch, where does this leave her ex and baby daddy Scott Disick?
Kourtney initially did not disclose the full details of why she and Scott ended their romantic relationship after almost 10 years. Earlier this year, the Keeping Up with the Kardashians star finally released some of her feelings about the breakup, noted ET.
Kardashian confessed that her split with Disick was so stressful that she suffered from anxiety, nausea, and lack of appetite.
“Everyone deals with hard times in their lives differently. I’m generally not a nervous person but I get anxious,” she admitted. “I also get nauseous and feel like I can’t eat when it is really bad, but I force myself to stay healthy.”
The two split in July 2015 when Scott, known for drinking and partying, was seen cheating with another woman. He subsequently entered a rehab treatment program and asked for another chance at life with Kourtney and the kids.
“If I didn’t have those kids, I would kill myself,” Disick threatened then.
“I just hope that somehow… God can like, give me a chance or us a chance at this.”
Now, following Kardashian’s confession of extreme anxiety over Scott and his plea for another chance earlier this year, Kourtney has dropped a bombshell about the dramatic changes that have occurred in their relationship from those stressful days.
The two have learned to co-parent and maintain a platonic relationship for their offspring 6-year-old Mason, 4-year-old Penelope, and 20-month-old Reign, reported E! News.
“I find co-parenting really easy,” proclaimed Kardashian. “Scott and I communicate all the time. You have to keep discussing what’s going on because as the children grow older, the rules need to be renegotiated.”
Kardashian and her former boyfriend are focusing on keeping their family together by attending events such as concerts as a group. Despite the ever-present paparazzi, she is persisting in this pattern.
“We make sure we go on days out together because the kids love it, but it’s really hard when you’re at the zoo and there are cameras in your face all day,” Kourtney confessed.
