He’s setting the record straight! Jaden Smith shut down rumors that he and Sofia Richie were more than friends after the pair spent Labor Day weekend at the beach together following her split from Scott Disick.
“You know, I actually don’t look at the internet, so I didn’t see that,” Jaden, 22, said during an interview on iHeartRadio’s On-Air With Ryan Seacrest from Friday, September 11. “Me and Sofia have been friends for like 10 years.”
He added, “We’ve been going to the beach pretty consistently for 10 years too. Yeah, we’re just homies and we love each other and it was fun.”
The musician and the model, also 22, were spotted cozying up to each other on the beach in Malibu, California on September 5. An eyewitness told Us Weekly at the time that “Sofia [sat] on the sand with her arms around Jaden,” which led fans to believe that there may be something romantic going on between the two. The insider added that Jaden and Sofia were seen “laughing and joking and looked very intimate.”
The source added, “They only had eyes for each other.”
Previously, Sofia and Jaden briefly dated back in 2012. As fans know, she went on to date Scott from 2017 until they split earlier this year. Reports first hit the web that Sofia and the Keeping Up With the Kardashians star broke up in May, but Us Weekly confirmed that they got back together before officially ending things in August.
“Sofia really pushed to make things work between them after they initially broke up, but Scott officially called it off recently and they are no longer speaking,” a source told the publication at the time.
Following the split, another insider told Us that Sofia was “not upset” about her split with Scott — who shares three kids Mason, 10, Penelope, 8 and Reign, 5, with Kourtney Kardashian.
