Lionel Richie went straight to the point when asked how he feels about his 19-year-old daughter Sofia Richie dating 34-year-old Scott Disick, who also happens to be Kourtney Kardashian’s scandalous ex.
Richie, who is a new judge on reality show “American Idol” told Us Weekly: “Have I been in shock?! I’m the dad, come on.”
Rumours had been swirling that the couple were together, but it wasn’t officially confirmed until Disick posted on his Instagram a photo of the 2 of them snuggling.
Asked if he was happy for the couple, Richie, like any protective father, said: “I’m scared to death, are you kidding me?”
