Kourtney Kardashian isn’t afraid to poke fun at herself. The 39-year-old shared an Instagram photo in which she is seen striking a sexy pose in bed, while her ex-boyfriend Scott Disick and their daughter, Penelope, 6, sit off to the side staring at a phone.
The Keeping Up With the Kardashians star captioned her Thursday, December 6, post: “Coparenting.”
Though the snap was clearly meant to be tongue-in-cheek, some fans weren’t laughing. Many accused Kardashian, who is currently single, of trying to make Disick’s girlfriend, Sofia Richie, jealous.
“Not coparenting. Just manipulating the situation to upset the girlfriend. Not the maturity of an almost 40-year-old. Grow up,” wrote one person in the comments. Another called out Kardashian for being “disrespectful” to Richie, 20, while a third accused her of trying to make the model feel “insecure.” Some suggested Richie leave Disick, 35, over the image.
Kardashian and Disick, who also share sons Mason, 8, and Reign, 3, began dating in 2006. The former couple ended their tumultuous on-and-off relationship in 2015. But a source told Us Weekly in November, the two are in a better place than ever.” (They recently took a family trip to Bali!)
Though Kardashian’s Thursday Instagram sparked outrage, it also garnered plenty of praise. “@letthelordbewithyou is such a hands on father, and @kourtneykardash you two are working together to be great parents is an awesome example for others!” wrote one. Added another: “Soooo wish you and Scott could get back together! He has really changed his life around. That’s great to see!”
While many KUWTK viewers are rooting for the parents to reconcile, the Kardashian family is happy for Disick and Richie. “They actually think she’s great for Scott,” an insider explained to Us last month. “Kourtney doesn’t have an issue with Sofia.”For all the inside details on the biggest celebrity stories and scoop this week, subscribe to our new podcast "Us Weekly's Hot Hollywood" below!
