Los Angeles, Feb 18 (IANS) Singer Lionel Richie says his 19-year-old daughter Sofia’s relationship with 34-year-old reality TV star Scott Disick is “just a phase”.
The Grammy winner, 68, talked about his daughter’s new pairing in an interview with The Daily Telegraph.
“She is 19. When you are 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,” Lionel said, reports people.com.
“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 are going to leave you alone for a minute and you will figure it out’,” Lionel joked.
“My daughter is getting me back for my Afro days!”
Asked what Disick is like, Lionel said: “From what I met of him he is a very nice guy.”
Sofia and Disick have been dating for nine months. They went public with their relationship in September and have since been photographed on dinner dates, on a New Year’s vacation and more.
