Did Lionel Richie give his nod upon learning that her daughter Sofia Richie is dating highly-controversial singer Justin Bieber?
Is he supportive of her 18-year-old daughter’s blossoming romance with the 22-year-old “Love Yourself” artist? Or, did he tell her to stay away from him?
It can be observed that the couple has been very vocal of their feelings toward each other. In fact, they have been spotted recently getting cozy while enjoying their Mexican getaway to celebrate her birthday.
As the father of the young model, is he aware of the real status of her relationship with Justin Bieber?
Considering the “Purpose” singer’s long list of past relationships, some might think that it is normal for Lionel Richie to stand between him and Sofia Richie. However, that is not the case.
According to Hollywood Life, a source has disclosed to them that the two have Lionel Richie’s support.
“Sofia is so happy that Lionel is completely OK with how things are going,” the unnamed informant reportedly dished. “Lionel is totally cool with Justin.”
The insider further narrated that “Justin has not once gotten Sofia in trouble.”
Is this something that has made Justin Bieber win the heart of his girlfriend’s father?
“Justin has put his daughter in zero harm, and has always been a really nice guy when they have been in the same room,” the source said.
In the meantime, Hollywood Life disclosed in a separate report that the singer has been so focused on his new girl that he has no time to check on his former flame Selena Gomez about the cancellation of her tour.
“He hasn’t reached out to her because he is doing his own thing and his own tour and he isn’t spending his time worrying about her,” a source shared about Justin Bieber. “He’s really loving his relationship with Sofia, and as long as Sofia is in the picture it looks like it will remain that way.”
