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.



Last year, Justin Bieber had the time of his life with the ladies.

With rumours going from Selena Gomez to Hailey Baldwin (and more inbetween), it now looks like he's cut all ties and is moving on with someone else.

Last weekend, the singer was spotted on Laguna Beach holding Sofia (the daughter of Lionel) Richie's hand.

But even more suss, is Sofia being spotted yet again – this time leaving Justin's house in her PJs.

The 17-year-old waited outside his house for her car to collect her, wearing a Calvin Klein sports bra and pyjama bottoms.

Let's just hope JB settles on this one.


Nicole Richie became a household name when she joined then BFF Paris Hilton for the reality TV show The Simple Life, which we still miss very much.

The under-rated but very much loved series introduced us all to Lionel Richie’s adopted daughter and put Nicole in the media spotlight.

66-year old Lionel spoke with Piers Morgan recently about difficult it can be to suddenly be pushed into the spotlight. He also shared the very cute story behind how he and Nicole became family.

“I went to a Prince concert and there on the stage in the middle of the concert was this four-year-old kid playing the tambourine.”

He says when he went backstage, he realised he knew Nicole’s birth parents. The couple where however having relationship issues at the time.

“I said, ‘While you are having the difficulty the kid is sitting out here in limbo so I’ll tell you what I’ll do, just put the kid in my house until the tour is over with and then we will sort this out later’.”

He explained that after a year of living with Nicole, he became ‘Dad’ to her and he decided to adopt her officially.

“I said, ‘OK here is what we are going to do… You are going to make everyone in your family wish they actually had a chance to get you back,’ and that’s when I said, 'Let’s adopt her.'″

Now happily married to Joel Madden and mother of Harlow and Sparrow, Nicole has certainly made some lifestyle changes since her early 00s days. In 2003 she was arrested for heroin possession.

When Lionel heard the news he cancelled his tour so he could go to Nicole’s rehab centre:

“I went to her and I said, 'When I was growing up I lost three friends, they were the hippest friends I ever knew in life … I don’t want you to be in that list of three’.”

After Nicole lost two friends as a result of drug abuse, she called her father and asked for help. He said at the time he and her mother were not on good terms but the family came together to support Nicole through her rehabilitation.


Rihanna has just gone and secured herself a place on American version of the talent show, The Voice. 

And so we all assumed that mean she'd be a judge. 

NBC revealed the news this week that the singer will be appearing on the forthcoming new season of the show.

However – and here comes the twist, the role is not one of a judge, but she will serve as a "key advisor" to judges Gwen Stefani, Adam Levine, Blake Shelton, and Pharrell Williams.

Rihanna will be in good company though: former advisors include Alicia Keys and Miranda Lambert.

"This is one of music's true supervisors coming on board to influence the lives and careers of the performers," NBC said in the press release. 

The show is to air its ninth season from next month and we're hoping with Rihanna on board it will produce some AMAZING super stars. 




Khloe Kardashian may want to just avoid the media altogether today.

There has long been speculation over who Khloe’s real father is, and a new name has been thrown into the hat today after the publication of a pretty scandalous story.

A source is claiming that Kris Jenner had an affair with none other than singer Lionel Richie once upon a time, and that Lionel may actually be Khloe’s real father!


In a story published in In Touch magazine, it is claimed that Kris and the All Night Long singer enjoyed a fling during the eighties, and that Khloe is, in fact, their love child.

“They had a sexual affair – he bragged about it. He said he was on the outs with his wife at the time,” said the unnamed source.

Of course, rumours of the identity of Khloe’s dad have swirled for years, with a number of sources claiming that Robert Kardashian was not her biological father.

It has previously been speculated that Alex Roldan, Kris’ former hairdresser, was Khloe’s real father, after it was revealed that he and the Kardashians’ momager had enjoyed a fling together.

So what do you all think? Is there a resemblance, or is this just a total fabrication?


Kylie could be in big trouble with the police. Watch the video for more.
