Lionel Richie Speaks Out About Sofia Dating Scott Disick
You know how hard it is to stomach all these pictures of Sofia Richie and Scott Disick sticking their tongues down each other's throats?
Well imagine if you were her DAD and you had to see them - totally awkward, totally unnecessary and totally inappropriate.
Which probably explains Lionel Richie's response to being asked how he felt about his 19-year-old daughter dating a man 15 years her senior; the legendary crooner told US Weekly that it's really not what he wants to think about.
"I'm the dad, come on," he said. "I'm scared to death, are you kidding me?"
As far as we would be concerned it's not so much the age difference as the Lord's checkered past that's the issue, but Mr Richie seems willing to give the reality star a chance.
"Lionel is especially worried for his young daughter," a source told HollywoodLife.com. "Lionel loves Sofia dearly and doesn't really know if he can trust Scott at all.
"Lionel doesn't think Scott is a bad guy, he just doesn't know him very well."
He'd probably be able to get to know him a little better if he stopped pashing his daughter for a hot second and actually had a conversation.
