While the Kardashians have kept some distance from Caitlyn Jenner ever since her falling out with momager Kris, a source says eldest sis Kourtney Kardashian has recently reconnected with her former step-parent.
"They talk all the time and have each other’s backs," dishes the source. "Kourt will lean on Cait when she’s stressed with issues involving Scott [Disick] or her sisters, and Cait uses her as a sounding board to process her feelings about Sophia [Hutchins]."
Now that Keeping Up with the Kardashians is ending, the pair is "even entertaining professional partnerships for next year," says the source, noting that the Poosh founder, 41, has floated a few ideas by Caitlyn, 71, like opening an eatery or starting a sportswear line.
"In a way, Kourt's glad Cait's excluded from family affairs," adds the source. "This way, she gets her all to herself!"
Meanwhile, Kardashian's baby daddy Disick, 37, is spending more and more time with 19-year-old Amelia Hamlin. The pair were first linked when they stepped out together at a Halloween bash, and rumors swirled yet again when they were spotted getting close at a Santa Barbara beach.
The twosome also turned heads when they were seen checking out houses in LA — though it's unclear whether they were looking to purchase a property together or separately.
The romance caused a stir amongst fans, with Hamlin speaking out on social media to defend their rumored relationship. "Ppl r [sic] extra weird and judgmental these days... people can embrace themselves however they feel fit for them at that moment in time," she wrote, adding, "People grow. People learn to love themselves more and more."
The duo have continued to shrug off the hate, and most recently, they celebrated New Year's Eve in Cabo together. In photos published by the Daily Mail, the couple is seen lounging around on the sand with friends — though they didn't show any PDA.
