It's certainly not uncommon for girls to have protective fathers. Dad's don't want to see their little girls get hurt, and just because you're an iconic singer doesn't change that.
So when Lionel Richie was asked by tabloid magazine US Weekly about what he thought of his 19 year old daughter, Sofia Richie's, relationship with reality TV star and baby daddy of Kourtney Kardashian's three kids, Scott Disick, Lionel had a pretty appropriate fatherly response.
"I’m scared to death, are you kidding me?" he scoffed.
Sofia's name started popping up in paparazzi pics and tabloids around the world in 2016, when she was rumored to be dating singer Justin Bieber (which no doubt Lionel wasn't too fond of either). She was also well known for being one of Kylie Jenner's BFF's.
It's been a little over a month that Scott & Sofia have made their relationship public.
