Lionel Richie’s other daughter who isn’t Nicole Richie is dating a much older man, and we’re not entirely sure it’s legal.
Sofia Richie, 17-year-old younger sister of former reality star turned designer Nicole Richie and daughter of Grammy-winning singer Lionel Richie, was spotted with a much older man Thursday night — and judging by the hand-holding going on, the pair are more than just friends.
Sofia and Manchester City soccer star Samir Nasri were seen leaving Los Angeles hotspot 1Oak together after celebrating his 29th — yes, just one year from 30th — birthday.
That’s a 29-year-old man with a 17-year-old girl. She doesn’t even turn 18 until August.
Her dad just celebrated his own birthday a few days ago, and rather than party at the club until all hours with him while she’s underage, per Sofia’s Instagram, a FaceTime session had to do.
In a recent interview with ES Magazine, Sofia explained how her big sis Nicole warned her against doing the very thing she seems to be doing right now — partying way too soon.
“People look at me thinking, ‘Oh, you are probably going to go through the same thing,’ [Nicole] says. ‘Don’t let people pressure you to do what they think is cool, like taking drugs. Be true to yourself,'” Sofia said.
A 29-year-old soccer star could certainly be considered a drug to a teenager, couldn’t he?
