As the couple continue to deal with their breakup,Chloe Bartoli, the woman who was photographed being very affectionate with Disick days before his split with his longtime girlfriend, has reportedly been claiming to people that her relationship with the reality star is strictly platonic.
“Chloe is adamant that nothing happened between her and Scott in Europe. She’s telling friends there is no way, that he’s like a brother to her,” a source close to Bartoli tells E! News. “He was super drunk the whole time and she took care of him, yes. But she says the photos are misleading … She insists she and Scott are just best friends.”
The insider adds that Bartoli, a stylist who dated Disick before he had met Kardashian, “has basically had to go into hiding” after the photos were published.
“Everywhere she goes, people yell at her,” the source explains.
In late June, Bartoli, 25, and Disick, 32, were photographed cuddling on a poolside lounger during a vacation in the south of France. Days later, word got out that Kardashian, 36, had called it quits with the father of her three children.
According to recent reports, Disick has been “acting like he doesn’t care anymore” since the breakup. Though he previously canceled several public appearances, he is slated to be at 1OAK nightclub in Las Vegas later this week.
