Singer Lionel Richie is voicing concern about his daughter’s new romance with reality bad boy Scott Disick. The five time Grammy award winning singer, spoke out on Wednesday about his 19 year old daughter Sofia Richie. Richie talked to ‘US Magazine’ during try outs for ‘American Idol’ where he is a new judge for the upcoming season. Richie said he is very concerned about his model daughter and her relationship with Scott Disick,34, the father of 3 young children with ex Kourtney Kardashian,38. Beside the 15 year age difference, Richie said “I’m scared to death for her, as any father would be.”
When asked if he was in shock, he replied “Have I been in shock? I’m the dad come on.” He was asked if he was happy for his daughter, Richie said “I’m scared to death, are you kidding me?” The couple have been together for about a month. Richie did not mince words, he called Disick “a douche” and a person that doesn’t accept responsibility for anything. Richie said his daughter is only 19 years old, and doesn’t need a relationship so badly that she would settle for someone like Disick.
Kardashian thinks the relationship is “weird” and will run it’s course. Kourtney has been keeping company with her boyfriend, Younes Bendjami. There is also a 15 year age difference between the twosome. Kourtney is hoping Disick ‘returns to his old self, and can be counted on. She has told friends nothing shocks her anymore when it comes to Scott Disick. Meanwhile Richie and Scott have been engaging in public PDA’s in full view of paparazzi. The pictures of Richie and Disick have been appearing in magazines from coast to coast. Richie says the more he says no the more Sophia wants to be with Scott.
