Scott Disick and Sofia Richie can't quit each other.

E! News has learned that the Keeping Up With the Kardashians star and the 21-year-old model are giving their relationship another shot. A source says the couple is "easing back" into things two months after initially breaking up in May 2020.

"Scott and Sofia never lost touch while spending time apart, but have been seeing each other more often recently," the insider explains to us. "They have hung out a handful of times in the last couple of weeks and are slowly easing back into a relationship."

Adds the source, "It feels totally back to normal from how things were before Scott went to rehab, but they've decided they don't want to put pressure on the status of the relationship. Sofia is still hesitant about getting back together, but she enjoys Scott's presence and does love him."

"It is up in the air and they are playing it day by day. Scott has been more persistent this time around and missed having Sofia in his life," our source shares. 

Prior to their May breakup, the twosome had been together for three years. Yet, even during their separation, Scott and Sofia never broke off contact from one another.

Most recently, the back-on duo reunited over the 4th of July weekend. As an E! News source detailed, they enjoyed "a casual lunch together in Malibu and a nice walk on the beach.

"Sofia and Scott have always been in touch," the source further shared after the reunion. "Sofia was giving Scott space to deal with his emotions, but would check in on him frequently during their 'split'. Scott was adamant about meeting up this past weekend. He expressed he really wanted to see Sofia and they both agreed they had missed each other."

Another sign of the pair's friendly relationship came in the form of an Instagram post. On Monday, Jul. 6, Sofia posted a photo of herself wearing a sweatshirt from Scott's Talentless company.

While Scott "liked" the image, the account for Talentless commented with a fire emoji.

At the time of the split, an insider told E!, "They are technically 'split' but Sofia has been in touch with Scott."

Additionally, the insider revealed, "there wasn't a fight or anything bad that happened between them," Sofia simply wished to "do her own thing" while Scott took "care of his health."

The same source hypothesized that "it's very likely they will reconcile."

As E! readers may recall, earlier this year, Scott briefly entered rehab to work on "past traumas." The Flip It Like Disick star, who shares three kids with ex Kourtney Kardashian, left the facility after a photo of him in treatment was leaked. 

By June, another insider revealed that the two were "still talking and in contact," yet weren't "back together."

How the tides have changed!
