When news of the romance between Kourtney Kardashian's ex Scott Disick and American singer-songwriter Lionel Richie's daughter Sofia Richie in 2017, the entire world was shocked.

In fact, a lot of people immediately thought that the fling would end sooner, noting the fifteen-year (15) age gap between the two personalities. When Scott and Sofia starting dating, the model was just eighteen (18) while Scott was thirty-three (33).

Fast forward to 2020, the celebrity couple are still together, amid breakup rumors that just wouldn't die.

While loyal Kourtney-Scott followers and online bashers just wouldn't let the couple be, one person close to Sofia remains chill and basically just not getting involved at all.

At the American Idol premiere event last February 12, 2020, held at the Hollywood Roosevelt Hotel, Lionel Richie was asked if he meddles with the love life of his daughter Sofia, who is now twenty-one (21).

The ever pleasant music legend quipped, "You notice, I don't. I don't. You can't step in there. It just doesn't work."

The American Idol judge added, "If you're a parent, you understand that" referring to giving space for her daughter's personal life.

In a previous interview with Daily Telegraph, Richie was also asked about his youngest child's relationship with Scott Disick. While he believed the romance was just a phase, he said "I'm going to stand real still in the corner, get me a good drink and not make too much noise."

He admitted though that he is not certain if the then-budding romance was going to be for life.

Recently, it has been reported that the two-year relationship of the reality star and supermodel has ended. But a source confirmed that the two are pretty much still together. In fact, they were seen to be hanging out with music legend Richie early this year.

But why the breakup news? According to the tipster, Scott and Sofia are just like any other couple who experience a lot of drama in the relationship. They constantly break up and then get back together again.

But could Kourtney be the reason why Scott and Sofia keep breaking up?

With Kourtney ever present in Scott's life, with them co-parenting their three children together, Sofia just cannot prevent the baby mama from getting involved in her boyfriend's life.

While they did try to hang out together, like on their December 2018 vacation in Mexico, the rivalry between the two ladies cannot be avoided, not to mention the Internet keeping on putting them into an imaginary derby.

But whatever Sofia and Scott's relationship status is right now, one thing is for sure, Sofia's father will just be waiting for his baby, with a drink in one hand.
