Last October 17, Richie was spotted enjoying dinner at Nobu in Malibu, California with Matthew Morton, co-founder of Cha Cha Matcha. They immediately sparked romance rumors after but a source told E! News the real score between the two and that is she’s not dating Morton.
The source said, “They have been texting for a few weeks and decided to go out. She’s having fun and isn’t looking for a relationship. She enjoyed her dinner date with him but it’s super casual.”
Richie has been going out more in order to get her mind off Disick whom she dated for three years before they called it quits in August, the source added.
Further, the source mentioned that Morton knows Richie and Disick because they belong to the same circle. Also, the source revealed that Richie referred to the reality TV star as someone who’s really cool and that they share a lot in common.
It seems that Richie isn’t the only one who has moved on as far as love life is concerned. Disick was spotted with model Megan Blake Irwin last Thursday where they were seen at Kimpton La Peer Hotel in West Hollywood, California, hanging out.
In addition, the Flip It Like Disick star also had dinner with model Bella Banos at Nobu earlier this month. A separate source told E! News that time, “They have hung out a few times now in the last couple weeks and have been quietly seeing each other.”
Upon hearing the news, Richie was quick to unfollow her x-boyfriend on Instagram. Another insider revealed that Richie was disappointed when she saw Disick with Bella because he mentioned several times that he wasn’t interested in dating and wanted to focus on other matters that’s why it came as a surprise to her. She felt he was dishonest.
Richie and Disick broke up in May then reconciled in July. However, they finally put an end to their three-year relationship in August. They never revealed the reason why but many speculated that their wide age gap is partly to blame.
