Rumor has it that Sofia Richie’s father Lionel is finally warming up to her much older boyfriend, Scott Disick now that they have been dating for over a year. It’s not hard to understand why the model’s dad was not too excited when his daughter started going out with Scott, mainly because of their 15 years age difference.
However, one insider report by HollywoodLife claims Lionel Richie is slowly accepting it and that he’s even close to being Scott’s friend!
‘It’s no secret that Lionel has never been a fan of Scott’s and that he wished his daughter had fallen in love with a man more age appropriate—but, as time’s gone on it’s grown apparent that Scott isn’t going anywhere, so Lionel has had to bite the bullet and learn to tolerate Scott, and the funny thing is that he’s actually starting to grow on Lionel,’ a source shared with the outlet.
Furthermore, Scott’s big personality might have pushed the singer away, but in the last year, he has learned to accept and even appreciate the reality TV star’s quirks and humor.
‘Scott is genuinely really charming, funny and super smart, and when he’s not playing the part of ‘Lord Disick,’ he’s a pretty humble and nice guy. It helps a lot that Scott clearly loves Sofia, and Lionel has come to realize that, in addition to realizing that Scott hasn’t got any ulterior motive for dating his daughter, and really does genuinely care for her,’ the insider explained.
They went on to say that ‘Lionel loves to still bust out with the protective dad act, and bust Scott’s balls from time to time, but they have developed this schtick between them now, and they are even developing somewhat of a friendship, It is kind of cute actually, and it makes Sofia happy to see the men she loves most in the world getting on together finally.’
