It looks like Sofia isn’t the only Richie that’s completely infatuated with Justin Bieber! Her dad, Lionel, also has a soft spot for the ‘Sorry’ singer, HollywoodLife.com has EXCLUSIVELY learned. Lionel ‘adores’ Justin and is really happy he’s dating Sofia!
“Lionel Richie adores Justin Bieber! 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. 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,” a source tells HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY.
This is amazing! It’s not always easy getting along with a significant other’s family, but it seems like Justin isn’t having any problems in the department. In fact, it sounds like it’s quite the opposite.
Not only is that a good thing for Justin, but it’s good for Sofia as well. She’s thrilled her dad is a fan of the Biebs! “Sofia is so happy that Lionel is completely OK with how things are going,” a source previously told HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY. “Lionel is totally cool with Justin.”
Even sister Nicole Richie is a fan of Justin! “Nicole is that last one to judge anyone’s relationship. She feels that if Justin and Sofia are having fun, then good for them. She is not worried about Sofia & Justin at all,” another source told us.
