Lionel Richie “Scared to Death” Over Scott Disick Dating His Daughter Leads Today’s Star Sightings

Like any dad, Lionel Richie is afraid of his daughter falling for the wrong man.

The legendary singer, who was just announced as one of the three judges on ABC’s American Idol reboot, told Us Weekly he’s “scared” over his 19-year-old’s new relationship with Scott Disick, 34.

“Have I been in shock?! I’m the dad, come on,” he said of Sofia Richie’s new man. “I’m scared to death, are you kidding me?”

As reported, the pair made their steamy romance official while partying with friends late last month. Sofia and Scott, who have been linked since May after being photographed “looking flirty” in Cannes, celebrated going public with their relationship with a “congratulations” cake.

“They’ve been practically inseparable these days,” a source told Celebuzz. “It’s still fairly new and they’re taking things slow, but Sofia is completely smitten with Scott.”

The duo were recently spotted making out on the beach in Mexico.
