Celebrity relationships and friendships are a rare breed. These famous faces have their lives played out in front of the masses, whether it’s the good, the bad, or the straight-up shady. In Elite Daily’s new series, It’s Complicated, we’re highlighting the biggest celebrity “feuds” that took over Hollywood and dominated our Sunday brunches for weeks on end. We’ll take a deep dive into the lives and social media feeds of our favorite stars and dissect what happened in front of the camera, what went down behind the scenes, and everything you might have missed in between.
Kourtney Kardashian and Scott Disick are literal pros when it comes to being BFFs. While the two haven’t been romantic since 2015, they’ve been attached at the hip ever since they broke up. And there’s a good reason for that. They’re 100% dedicated to making their kids’ lives as smooth and carefree as possible, and part of that involves learning how to enjoy each other’s company. If Kourtney Kardashian and Scott Disick’s quotes about co-parenting after their split are anything to go by, then they’ve certainly mastered that.
In a recent sit-down Q&A with each other for Kardashian’s new business venture Poosh's YouTube channel, the two discussed how they make it all work. In the video, Disick explained why he won’t let any negativity get in the way of giving his kids the family life they deserve.
"I'm not going to make our kids miss out on things just because we couldn't figure out how to be a couple," he said. "And by the way, I don't think people will be able to live their lives if they do it that way maybe, so it's not our [place] to tell other people how they want to live."
With that in mind, it’s easy to see why Kardashian and Disick have such a strong bond. And their social media interactions after their split certainly demonstrate how much they appreciate each other, despite things not working out romantically. Here’s a look at some of their most interesting and heartfelt interactions on Instagram.

And the fact that Disick shared it indicates he really does cherish the time he spends with his ex and their kids.
It's obvious from these photos and videos that the couple was striving to maintain their happy family status, even though romance wasn't part of the equation anymore.
