36-year-old Scott Disick and 21-year-old Sofia Richie have been dating for two years now and have been through their fair share of difficulties as a couple. Aside from the public's never-ending criticism, there was also a lengthy adjustment period for the Kardashian-Jenner family, as you can see in all the tense Keeping Up With The Kardashians clips. And even though some people thought Sofia's ultra-famous pop, Lionel Richie, would eventually welcome Scott into the family with open arms, he reportedly still hasn't come around fully just yet.
According to an E! source, "Lionel has accepted their relationship but still isn't entirely 100 percent on board with Scott mostly because of the age difference and how young Sofia is." That said, he's trying, okay?! They continued, "Lionel can see how happy Sofia is, though, so he is definitely making more of an effort with Scott." Even better, they all went on a trip for Thanksgiving and "progress is for sure being made."
Basically, this seems like the best-case scenario, considering Lionel shaded their relationship in 2018. At the time, he said, "She's 19. When you're 19, you know everything. Is it going to be for life? I don't know. But for right now it's just a phase and I'm going to stand real still in the corner, get me a good drink, and not make too much noise."
He added, "Now I know what my parents meant when I came through the door with my Afro and my girlfriend and said 'Dad, I'm in love' and [he] looked at me and said 'Okay, we're going to leave you alone for a minute and you'll figure it out." Join me in screaming at this last bit: "My daughter is getting me back for my Afro days!"
2018 must've been fun for them! But when you hear his latest quotes, well, that's growth, baby.
