Lionel Richie is reportedly starting to accept his daughter Sofia Richie dating Scott Disick. The couple has been together for over two years. However, the singer is just now warming up to the romance.
An insider shared with E! News, Lionel, Sofia, and Scott spent the Thanksgiving holiday weekend together in Miami. The Grammy winner is reportedly trying harder to accept the relationship, even though he is still hesitant because of their 15-year age difference.
Lionel is making more of an effort with Scott for Sofia’s sake, especially since the relationship is not the faze Lionel initially hopes it would be.
“Scott and Sofia are still together, and all is well for now. They spent Thanksgiving with Lionel Richie, and they all flew together on his private jet for their holiday trip. Lionel has accepted their relationship but still isn’t entirely 100 percent on board with Scott, mostly because of the age difference and how young Sofia is. Lionel can see how happy Sofia is, though, so he is making more of an effort with Scott,” the source shared with the entertainment news outlet.
One of the ways he is building a bridge with Scott and Sofia is by being open and honest. Lionel is still leery because she is so young to be so serious about a man. His relationship with Sofia means the world to him and Lionel wants to do whatever he can to support her.
“He is a really honest, upfront kind of guy and feels like his father-daughter relationship with Sofia is more important than anything, so he’s trying to be there for Sofia and to be supportive of her despite his reservations about her relationship. They all had a really great holiday together, though, and progress is for sure being made between Lionel and Scott,” the source added.

It wasn’t that long-ago reports swirled that Lionel and Nicole Richie had both cut ties with Sofia because of her romance with Scott. There is no question the Flip It Like Disick star has changed a lot since his relationship with Sofia first started. He has even begun to open up about the romance on Keeping Up With The Kardashians.
