Sofia Richie, 18, is the daughter of singer Lionel Richie and sister of former reality television star Nicole Richie. Richie rose to prominence after she started to date mega popstar Justin Bieber during 2016.
Richie’s entry into Bieber’s life was not without controversy, though. After posting pictures of her on his Instagram Bieber received numerous hateful comments from his Beliebers. After threatening to delete his Instagram as a result, ex-girlfriend Selena Gomez got herself involved, dissing Justin in his comments:
“If you can’t handle the hate then stop posting pictures of your girlfriend lol -it should be special between you two only. Don’t be mad at your fans. They love you. They were there for you before anyone.”
After this, Bieber did eventually delete his Instagram and still continues to date Sofia Richie.
Richie appears to have bought her ticket into the celebrity world, so get used to her, cause you’ll be seeing a lot of her for a while.
