As any Keeping Up With the Kardashians viewer — or really, anyone who’s walked past a newsstand in the last few years — knows, Kourtney Kardashian and ex-boyfriend Scott Disick have had quite the rocky relationship. And yet, with three kids between them, the two reality stars have had to join forces for the sake of their brood.
Evidently, that sometimes involves an eyebrow-raising photo shoot. On Wednesday, Kardashian shared an Instagram pic in which she seductively lounges on her bed in a slinky black dress while Disick plays with their 6-year-old daughter, Penelope. Her caption: “Coparenting.”
The modern family display has earned raves — with many fans calling it “#goals” and others pulling for a reignited romance — but several followers found it inappropriate and disrespectful to Disick’s current girlfriend, Sofia Richie. One commenter claimed that Kardashian “clearly doesn’t care about his [relationship].”
“She is a disrespectful woman with no dignity,” read one comment with more than 400 likes. “She is very jealous of Sofia because she is beautiful and gorgeous and Scott doesn’t know when he has a good woman next to him.”
Others accused the 39-year-old of “going through a midlife crisis” and being “disrespectful as hell” to Richie. One commenter called it “immature and disgusting,” while others lashed out at Disick for “playing” his girlfriend.
Some criticized the former couple for sending mixed messages about their relationship, which they claimed would negatively affect their three kids: Penelope, 8-year-old Mason and 3-year-old Reign.
“This is not co-parenting, this is petty!” added a critic. “Confusing the kids is not healthy mentally! Those children are all going to be divorced and have multiple partners thinking it’s OK! Grow up. Let Sofia be with Scott since you wanted him out of your life! You have major issues keeping a man. Baby daddies and baby mamas are a hi and bye, not a let’s mix and mingle.”
Kardashian hasn’t responded to the flak, but it’s certainly not the first time she’s been under fire for posting a provocative photo. In November, she was mom-shamed and accused of setting a bad example for her kids after she posted a nude photo of herself on Instagram.
