Sofia's romantic escapades first caught the public eye with a short-lived relationship with Jaden Smith in 2012, when the two were teenagers.

Although their initial fling remained relatively low-key, the duo sparked dating rumors once again in September 2020, fueling speculation about a possible rekindling. The "Summertime in Paris" singer clarified on iHeartRadio's On-Air With Ryan Seacrest that their relationship has always been platonic, emphasizing their decade-long friendship.

During the summer of 2016, Sofia was spotted hand in hand with French soccer star Samir Nasri, who is 12 years her senior.

Their outing, particularly during Nasri's 29th birthday celebration, sparked rumors of a budding romance, adding an international flair to Sofia's dating history.

Yikes! If this one is true, it means that the then-29-year-old was dating Sofia when she was only 17.

One of Sofia's most high-profile relationships unfolded with reality TV personality Scott Disick.

Despite a significant 15-year age difference, the couple stayed together for three years! But not without facing scrutiny from the public and even Sofia's father.

Their on-again, off-again relationship ultimately concluded in August 2020, attributed to differences in lifestyle and a 15-year age gap. Of the split, Sofia's sister Nicole supposedly felt she was “way better off without” him in her life!
