We've all seen photos of Justin Bieber and Sofia Richie hanging out all around the world, and they've both gotten a lot of hate about their relationship. There is one person, however, that doesn't hate the idea of them both together!
Lionel Richie, music legend and Sofia's father, actually approves of the relationship! They were both caught coming out of Pressed Juicery in Beverly Hills, and TMZ asked all of our important questions. TMZ asked what Lionel thought of the relationship, and he responded, "I'm not going there, I have strict orders not to go there."
When asked if Lionel approves, he said "Yeah." At least Sofia's dad is awesome and clearly had the time to get to know Justin, and likes him! I guess Lionel saying that he was told not to answer questions about Sofia and Justin, that's all the confirmation we need to know that they're really an actual thing.
