Has Kris Jenner created a love triangle for her oldest daugher, Kourtney Kardashian, with former boyfriend Scott Disick and his new girlfriend, Sofia Richie?
According to a new report, NW magazine recently described the dynamic between the trio as "juicy" and said that their supposed love triangle had Jenner "written all over it."
“Kris has totally masterminded this. She’s an absolute genius when it comes to plot lines,” an insider told the magazine, according to a report by Gossip Cop on March 20. “She knew she had to come up with an intense plot and is absolutely involved in all [the couplings]."
Is It All For 'Keeping Up With The Kardashians' Ratings?
The insider claimed Jenner had been motivated to create drama among her family members in an effort to drum up buzz and increase ratings for her E! Network reality show, Keeping Up With the Kardashians.
“Cast your mind back to previous seasons and you’ll see that Kourtney and Scott’s relationship problems have always played out for the ‘KUWTK’ cameras… This latest drama is no exception,” the source continued.
The insider said that Jenner is “hell bent on ratings gold” and is willing to welcome 19-year-old Richie to her series, even if she turns out to be “collateral damage” for their family. That said, Richie will reportedly benefit from Jenner's supposed plan -- even if she and Disick don't work out. After all, she'll gain tons of exposure if she appears on Keeping Up With the Kardashians.
Is A 'Girlfriend Swap' Coming Soon To 'Keeping Up With The Kardashians'?
The NW magazine source went on to suggest that Disick and Kardashian's boyfriend, Younes Bendjima, who has been friendly with Richie for years, could be on the verge of a "girlfriend swap." However, over the past few years, Kardashian has made it clear that she is happy to have moved on from Disick and their drama-plagued relationship. She also appears quite happy with Bendjima.
Although the ups and downs of Kardashian and Disick's relationship have been seen on Keeping Up With the Kardashians, Richie and Bendjima have not been seen on screen at all. Instead, their relationships have been addressed from time to time during conversations among the Kardashian-Jenner family.
According to Gossip Cop, NW magazine's allegations against Jenner are unlikely.
