Scott and Sofia's adorable banter comes less than a week after she made her Keeping Up With The Kardashians debut. Sunday’s episode of the hit reality series proved to be an awkward one as the cameras followed Scott, Sofia, and his ex-partner, Kourtney Kardashian on their first big family trip together.
While holidaying in Finland, tension arose between the unlikely trio with Sofia telling her boyfriend of two years that she felt “left out” around Kourtney, 40.
The episode began by Kourtney confessing she had originally wanted to go to Finland with her girlfriends, before changing her mind and taking her children— Mason, nine, Penelope, seven, and Reign, four— which she shares with Scott, instead.
“I was first going to go to Finland as a girls' trip, and then it just seems like a lot of the activities are things my kids would love.”
Scott readily admitted he didn’t want to miss out on a holiday with his kids, so decided to tag along with Sofia— who had been on other Kardashian family trips before.
However, the trip quickly descended into disaster with Scott and Sofia leaving early after she accused Scott of acting “less mature” around her than he did with Kourt.
"It's kind of weird. I'm trying to pay attention to everybody without neglecting anybody," Scott told his sister-in-law Kim over the phone.
"Sofia mentioned to me that I'm acting a little bit differently around Kourtney. It's tough because sometimes Kourtney and I have so much history and have known each other so long, so I've just been trying to be kind of mindful and not make Sof feel uncomfortable just because Kourt and I have known each other our whole lives."
He added that the stress of the situation has caused him to lash out at the mother of his kids.
"Now I'm kind of - I'm not being rude to Kourtney -but it just puts so much stress on me and then it just turns into me being not happy," he confided. "I'm not even fun to be around for anybody. I think this trip out of the other trips we've been on has a little bit more pressure because there are camera crews everywhere."
Surprisingly, Kim took Sofia’s side.
"She seems like she's pretty cool with everything. So, if she's speaking up about something that bothers her, you kind of have to pay attention. And Kourtney has to completely understand that. Don't get discouraged and be unhappy. You guys will figure it out."
Speaking to camera later, Scott said: "The truth of the matter is, I don't need to put as much pressure on myself.
"I think one of the reasons I put so much pressure on myself is that I want these trips to be so perfect. I don't want anything to happen."
