Scott Disick Is Spotted With An 18-Year-Old Model, But We Should Take These Photos At Face Value — PHOTOS

Scott Disick is, technically, a single man now. It's been nearly three months since he and Kourtney Kardashian split, which yes, technically, means he can date whoever the heck he wants. Of course, just because you can do something, doesn't mean you should. And, in Scott Disick's case, if you're spotted partying with an 18-year-old model, even if you're not dating, everyone is going to assume that you are and come down on you hard for it.

Maybe folks are throwing serious shade at the father of three after photos leaked showing him hanging out with Lindsay Vrckovnik in New York City because he's 32 and she just graduated high school last year. Or maybe most people are just Team Kourtney and hate to think of her at home, taking care of Mason, 5, Penelope, 3, and Reign, 9 months, while their dashing dad gets to travel the globe and hang out with other women.

Keeping in mind the fact that Disick hasn't commented about his love life, nor is there tangible proof that he has a girlfriend, a lot of people can't help but automatically link two people together if they are both good looking, which is, sadly, one of the only thing you can say with certainty after viewing these pictures.

It's time to take a breath and see these photos for what they are.

At the end of the day, all anyone can say about these is that they show Vrckovnik and Disick sitting next to one another at a bar. Both appear to have beers in front of them and are possibly watching a sporting event on a TV screen. At one point, the cute blonde laughs. But Disick seems like a pretty ridiculous and humorous dude, so why wouldn't she be?

And, in the second photo, they're just standing next to each other. Big whoop. But the "D" word is already being tossed around (no, not that "d" word — dating). Hollywood Life reports that Disick and Vrckovnik partied together until 6 a.m. and describes that as "dating." I'm going to go out on a limb and say, I believe they were both at the same party until 6 a.m. and maybe shared a couple of laughs and drinks, but none of those things automatically mean Disick is now dating an 18-year-old.

It's also unfortunate for Vrckovnik that she may now become known as a teen responsible for coming between Disick and Kardashian (even though they're so obviously over, third party or no third party). Here what is known about Vrckovnik: she moved to NYC from Canada a few months ago, after graduating high school. She is attending Parsons The New School for Design and appears to be a talented artist and photographer. In an interview with Daughter Runs, she spoke about her biggest influence: "A lot of my work is inspired by the mystery of strangers and their stories. I consider all of my portraits strangers because none of them are inspired by myself or people i know, but rather emotions and stories i create through examining people and places unknown to me."

Uh, I'd say Disick is one great big mystery wrapped in a ball of enigma, so can you blame a young woman who talks like that for wanting to speak to him? I sincerely hope she is spared the angry wrath of Kourtney fans. She's a young woman trying to figure out her path — not a homewrecker.

As for Disick, he's a grown man and can do what he wants, but it would be really nice to see him taking this time to focus on his children, whom I'm sure are having a rough time adjusting to not seeing their dad around as much. Women may offer comfort and an easy distraction, but they should be the last thing on his mind right now. Focus, Scott.
