Scott Disick is no longer "tied down" by his relationship with Kourtney Kardashian, but he continues to link himself to her on social media even as they both plan to move forward separately.

On Thursday, Disick posted the nude Vanity Fair photo his ex released Tuesday on Instagram, writing, “Now that’s 1 hot mama.”

Kardashian, 36, and Disick, 32, split in July after nine years together, and sources tell PEOPLE that they are both still in the process of building separate lives.

For his part, Disick has been seen partying in New York City before cozying up to artist and model Lindsay Vrckovnik, 18, in Miami last Friday – a move that is bittersweet for the mother of his three children: Mason, 5, Penelope, 3, and Reign, 10 months.

“Kourtney knew this would be coming,” says the source. “Seeing Scott in photos with other girls still hurts, of course, but they are broken up.”

But Kardashian’s priorities are clear. “She just doesn’t want drama,” says the source. “She wants it to be clean and to move on.”

And a source close to Disick previously told PEOPLE that he is on the same page: “Unless there’s a miracle, he’s not getting back with Kourtney. He feels free and ready to have fun.”
