If you find Scott Disick’s relationship with Sofia Richie kinda problematic given their 15-year age gap, you’re in good company — her father, Lionel Richie, is also not a fan of the relationship! In Touch has exclusively learned what the 68-year-old icon thinks of his youngest’s new romance, and he’s understandably less than thrilled. Watch the video below to see his reaction!
Lionel made his feelings especially know when Us Weekly asked about the relationship. “Have I been in shock?! I'm the dad, come on,” he joked. “I’m scared to death, are you kidding me?”
This is the second high-profile relationship for the 19-year-old, who was once linked to Justin Bieber. Scott, on the other hand, has been linked to a bevy of young women since he officially ended things with the mother of his three children, Kourtney Kardashian (who, coincidentally, was also once linked to Justin Bieber).
Like Lionel Richie — and, let’s be honest, the rest of the world — Kourt is said to be a little bothered by Scott’s newest fling. “Kourtney thinks this fling with Sofia is a little weird, but nothing shocks her anymore,” a source told Us Weekly. “Kourtney just wants Scott to be his old self. She shares three kids with him, so she’ll always want the best for him and will always make sure he’s happy.”
Of course, most of us know that Scott won’t be totally happy until he has Kourtney back — he even recently confessed that he “tries to f--k her at least once a week.” And it would appear Kourt hasn’t turned her back on their relationship either — she said that she’d have another kid with Scott if the timing and circumstances are right.
