Lionel Richie has finally spoken up since his 19-year-old daughter, Sofia’s relationship with 34-year-old Scott Disick surfaced.
According to E! News, the legendary singer was asked about Sofia’s relationship during a recent interview in Australia, and he said, “She’s 19 When you’re 19 you know everything. Is it going to be for life? I don’t know. But for right now it’s just a phase and I’m going to stand real still in the corner, get me a good drink and not make too much noise.”
He continued, saying, “Now I know what my parents meant when I came through the door with my Afro and my girlfriend and said, ‘Dad, I’m in love’ and [he] looked at me and said, ‘Okay, we’re going to leave you alone for a minute and you’ll figure it out.’ My daughter is getting me back for my Afro days!”
This interesting response comes three months after Sofia said her father was supportive of her relationship and Lionel major a hand gesture, shooting himself in the head.
Now, he is telling it all, and without any sort of irritation; he understands that his daughter is still growing, that her decisions will keep evolving.
Interesting dad, isn’t he?
