Amid the negative comments that Justin Bieber has been receiving lately, it appeared that he has got an ally in the father of his new girlfriend Sofia Richie.
The latest report about the 22-year-old singer has suggested that veteran singer Lionel Richie appreciates his daughter’s boyfriend.
While the “Purpose” artist has been accused by some of being a playboy, the 67-year-old “Machine Gun” singer reportedly believes that he is a gentleman. What has Justin Bieber possibly done to deserve such admiration from Sofia Richie’s father?
As what a source shared with Hollywood Life, the father of his ladylove seemed to have doubts about him and their romance at first, but a certain discovery changed such notion.
“Lionel Richie adores Justin Bieber!” the unnamed informant dished. “He was skeptical at first because of all the bad press Justin has gotten over the years. He was expecting an entitled brat, but Lionel was pleasantly surprised to find just the opposite.”
“Justin charmed him right off the bat because he’s a huge Commodores fan and he grew up with his dad playing all of Lionel’s solo stuff,” the source added. “Justin’s also a perfect gentleman with Sofia, at least so far, and Lionel appreciates how Justin put his fans in their place after they were writing nasty comments about her online.”
It can be recalled that in a previous report, Hollywood Life already disclosed about how Lionel Richie feels towards Bieber. It was disclosed that the veteran singer is “completely OK” with her 18-year-old daughter’s romance with the “Baby singer. In fact, he is even “cool” with him.
Since the couple has the nod of her dad, the two have been open about their deepening relationship that they do not have inhibitions about roaming around together while showing off several PDA.
Back in August, Justin Bieber and Sofia Richie were spotted in Cabo San Lucas, Mexico enjoying a vacation together, Us Weekly reported.
