Lionel Richie has made it clear where he stands on his daughter’s relationship. After a recent cheating allegation, Scott Disick is turning out to be just the person the living legend thought he was. Sofia Richie is just trying to keep the peace by including her 35-year-old boyfriend in their Father’s Day plans.
Sofia chose to ignore Disick’s bad boy reputation but she did know what she was signing up for when she decided to date a guy with three children.
Sofia has been spending time with Scott’s kids and would like to be there when he celebrates the holiday but more than anything, she would like to invite Scott to whatever she has in mind to show her dad how much she appreciates him.
Unfortunately, Lionel doesn’t want much to do with the reality star.
“Lionel doesn’t want Scott around on Father’s day and Sofia is not happy about it,” a source revealed to Hollywood Life.
The insider went on to say: “She has been arguing with her dad to be more accepting and patient with her boyfriend. But it’s hard for her dad to keep an open mind because Scott is so much older than his daughter and he has such a bad boy reputation. Sofia wants to spend Father’s Day with Scott, and enjoy his kids with him, but she also wants Scott to join her for dinner with her dad too. She feels if her dad would spend more time with Scott, he would see what Sofia sees in Scott. Sofia knows her boyfriend is nice, funny, sweet, kind and much different than what, her dad, or other strangers think about him.”
This comes after the 19-year-old allegedly split with Scott for being unfaithful both in Miami and in public at Kanye West’s recent listening party in Wyoming. Days later, the couple was back together.
Do you think Lionel will ever accept Scott?
