Lionel Richie speaks out about Justin Bieber dating his daughter

Justin Bieber and Sofia Richie have been officially dating for a couple of weeks, and things are getting pretty serious. 

The couple were recently seen boarding a private jet to Mexico, in order to celebrate Sofia's birthday. 

If you have been wondering what Sofia's father, Lionel Richie, thinks about his daughter's new fella, look no further. 

TMZ have reported that Lionel approves of Justin, but is under "strict instruction not to talk about it!"

In a video captured by a source, Lionel and Sofia can be seen walking down the street together.

The camera-man asks the singer a number of Bieber-related questions. 

When asked if he would consider making music with the Love Yourself singer, Lionel said "that'd work, we'll figure it out."

A vague yet positive response. 

Well, at least the Biebs has the father's seal of approval.
