Everything is in disarray at the moment.
These days, it feels like every week brings some new challenge that we, as a society, have never confronted before.
So in a way it’s comforting to throw it back to a simpler time and dissect the sort of mysteries that preoccupied us in like 2015.
Take, for example, the rumor that Kourtney Kardashian and Scott Disick are back together after a three-year hiatus.
Ever since he split from Sofia Richie, reports of a reconciliation with Kourtney have been circulating. For good reason.
In fact, chatter regarding Scott and Kourtney happens regardless of whether one or both of them is in a relationship.
Because of how frequently such whispers make the rounds on social media, it might be temping to dismiss all of them.
But that would be a mistake.
Dismissing some of the more outlandish rumors would mask the broader developments playing out before our eyes:
As far as we can tell, celebrity gossip reports regarding Scott and Kourtney hooking up are becoming increasingly common because Scott and Kourtney really do hook up with some regularity.
Sure, the reports of these two cheating on their significant others might be BS, but during the times when they’re both single?
Times like right now, that is?
We totally believe that Kourt and Scott indulge in some casual ex sex. Part of the reason for this is that they really don’t even try to hide it.
Last week, we had pics of Kourtney wearing one of Scott’s shirts while the whole family was on vacation together in Wyoming.
This week, the Disick branch of the Kardashian family tree assembled once again, this time to celebrate Father’s Day.
Kourtney posted a photo of the festivities on Instagram.
“Happy Father’s Day, thankful for you and these three special ones,” the captioned the pic.
And Kourtney wasn’t the only member of the Kardashian clan to pay tribute to Scott.
Kris Jenner included Scott in a collage of pics of all the dads in her life, and Khloe Kardashian posted a pic of Scott to her Instagram Story.
Of course, it wasn’t just Scott who was on Kourtney’s mind this past Sunday.
She also posted a touching tribute to her late father, Robert Kardashian Sr., writing:
“I can’t believe it’s been 17 years since I heard your voice, saw you or touched you. Always in my heart.”
It seems Kourt still has plenty of love for both her father and the father of her children.
But is her affection for Scott purely platonic these days?
We guess it’s possible.
It’s hard not to notice, though, that these two have been spending a lot more time together in the weeks since Scott broke up with Sofia Richie.
And c’mon … Kourt was wearing the guy’s shirt while they were on vacation together!
If that’s not a sign of intimacy, we don’t know what is.
Like we said, it’s possible these two are just enjoying a “co-parents with benefits” arrangement – which is basically what they had when they were together for a decade, if we’re being honest.
They never got married and seemed to live separate lives in many respects, even if they were a family living “together.”
Hey, if they’re able to bang each other without any messy emotions getting in the way, we say good for them.
But these two have been historically unable to quit one another, and there’s a chance it’ll backfire, hard.
We’d be surprised if they’re able to keep maintain their current arrangement for very long.
