Scott Disick and Sofia Richie’s relationship has been the subject of a lot of controversies ever since it began in 2017. Their fifteen-year age gap, the fact that Scott has children with Kourtney Kardashian, and Scott’s job as a reality TV star have all played into this. While Scott’s wing, the Kardashians, have been mostly supportive of the match, welcoming Sofia onto their show and befriending her, Sofia’s father, Lionel Richie, has expressed his disapproval. So where does Sofia’s sister, Nicole, stand?
Although many fans expected Sofia to be met with hostility by the Kardashians and Jenners, it looks like they have all been getting along quite well. Kourtney Kardashian and Scott have mastered the co-parenting skill, and have struck a balance with their children between both of them. Kourtney is also dating someone new, so it doesn’t look like there’s any jealousy here. Sofia has also appeared on Keeping up with the Kardashians, and has been spotted hanging out with Kylie Jenner. So it’s safe to say there’s no drama on this side.
Sofia’s father is the famous musician Lionel Richie. The “Endless Love” singer has expressed apprehension as Sofia’s father, especially because Scott is so much older. Soon after the couple became official, Richie told Us Weekly, “I’m scared to death, are you kidding me?” When further asked about his reaction to the news, he continued, “Have I been in shock?! I’m the dad, come on.” It looks like Sofia does not have her father’s complete approval yet, although he has recently been making more of an effort to accept the relationship.
Sofia’s older half-sister, Nicole Richie, has not been very vocal about her thoughts on Scott and Sofia’s romance. She is a reality star herself, having become a household name on The Simple Life with then-best friend Paris Hilton, and continuing her reality TV reign as the star of the short-lived Candidly Nicole and judging the reality competition show Fashion Star. While she is likely okay with the public aspect of Sofia’s relationship, she is known to feel protective over her little sister.
With Scott and Sofia getting more and more serious, tension has risen between Sofia and Nicole. “Nicole and Sofia’s relationship has definitely become strained as Sofia’s relationship with Scott has grown more serious,” a source told Hollywood Life, adding that Nicole believes the relationship is moving too fast and that Sofia should be focusing on her career, rather than a man who might be at a completely different point in his life than she is. Nicole and Sofia have not posted any photos together recently, and Nicole has not been seen near Scott in public recently either, so it looks like she and Scott aren’t exactly the best of friends.
