Wonderwall.com is taking a look back at the stars who found love, suffered heartbreak or experienced some other major event in their love lives in early November 2020, starting with this former long-term couple… Kourtney Kardashian and Scott Disick sparked a fresh round of reconciliation rumors with their flirty behavior on social media in late October. The Poosh founder, for example, set her fans into a frenzy when she posted a pair of selfies with her ex on Instagram on Oct. 28. Two days later, Us Weekly reported that, according to a source, the former couple "will always have a playful relationship with each other and love for each other" — but they're only "focused on co-parenting successfully" right now. "They know when they post pictures of each other, leave comments on each other's posts, etc. [that] their fans love it. And the attention is fun and cute to them," claimed the source. According to a second Us Weekly source, though, "Kourtney and Scott's friends and family wouldn't be surprised if one day they got back together. All their friends think their relationship is so weird and think they must hook up." But if they did take their relationship to the next level, "Kourtney would most likely be very private about it," said the insider. "It's a constant topic amongst her family and she denies there are romantic feelings there, so there's just no way she would admit it." Scott, meanwhile, "would 100% get together with her" again. "She's the one who has the control and just says they are friends and a family, but nothing romantic," said the source. A few days later, yet another Us Weekly source echoed of Kourtney and Scott, "[Their] relationship has taken a bit of shift recently — spending more time together and being more kind with each other. Scott has always loved Kourtney, and the door is open on his side in case she ever wants to take their relationship back to a romantic place. … Kourtney has been through so much good and bad with Scott … [and] the bad [moments] are what makes her keep him at arm's length romantically." Still, "their friends think they could get back together." Just don't expect Scott to wait around. "[He] is doing his own thing. [He] is in a good place and dating around," said a fourth Us Weekly source after the father of three was seen at a Halloween party with model Amelia Gray Hamlin following recent hangouts with models Bella Banos and Megan Blake Irwin.

Although they spent the summer working on their relationship, Julianne Hough officially filed to divorce Brooks Laich on Nov. 2. According to a People magazine source, "They were trying to get their marriage to work for a long time. They both made many changes and compromised, but it just wasn't enough. They don't have the same vision for the future." An Us Weekly source echoed that the duo — who first announced their plans to call it quits in late May — "had a lot of back-and-forth moments" before deciding to throw in the towel for good. "Julianne and Brooks just can't get past their problems," said the source. "Julianne had a dinner party with friends a few months ago, which Brooks came to. They were trying to be lovey-dovey with each other and have a good night with a few friends, but Brooks ended up bringing up some of their issues in front of everyone and it became a big fight." The insider went on to say that when they first "took time apart," the dancer-actress and the former professional hockey player "continued to stay in touch" and remained "connected" because "they share the same friend group" and business interests. "They missed each other and ended up hooking up a few times during their breakup and have tried to sort out their marriage and business commitments," said the source.

He said, 'I didn't choose this world, I chose you, and you chose that world. But we can keep our lives separate and together.' And we do and we have. … When people ask me why it's lasted this long, I say, 'Because I stay gone.' And there's a lot of truth in that — the fact that we're not in each other's faces all the time.
