Lionel Richie Says Daughter Sofia's Relationship with Scott Disick is 'Just a Phase'

Lionel Richie is addressing his daughter Sofia‘s relationship with Scott Disick.

During an interview with The Daily Telegraph, the 68-year-old American Idol judge was asked how he felt about his 19-year-old daughter dating the 34-year-old reality star, and he said he’s going to let his daughter do her thing.

“She’s 19,” Lionel said. “When you’re 19 you know everything. Is it going to be for life? I don’t know. But for right now it’s just a phase and I’m going to stand real still in the corner, get me a good drink and not make too much noise.”

Sofia and Scott went public with their relationship back in September, and have been inseparable ever since.

When asked about Scott, Lionel called him “a very nice guy.”

“When you hang around the reality world, who knows what you are really doing?” Lionel said. “This is a well-oiled machine, the Kardashian machine. I don’t really know what to think. I told Sofia I will have no opinion. I’ll continue to be my cheerful self and move on.”

    It’s gonna end badly and he should know that. At least I hope she is intelligent enough to get out when Scott starts showing his drunk emotionally detached real self. What’s up with these hollyweed parents anyway, no effort at all smh

    Good Lord Lionel. She’s dating an older man with three kids, a sex addiction, an alcohol problem, and your waiting her to pass through this “phase’? The “terrible two’s” are a phase. She’s nineteen living her life in front of the public trying to be a model, lol. When the sh*t hits the fan, it’s going to be bad, unless she get’s desperate enough to keep him and gets knocked up. Just terrible and gross all the way around.
