Scott Disick, 36, and Sofia Richie, 21, started dating 2 years ago. At the time, Richie was just 19 years old. The couple have stayed together for 2 years and spent Thanksgiving this year with Lionel Richie.

A source told E!, “Scott and Sofia are still together and all is well for now. They spent Thanksgiving with Lionel Richie and they all flew together on his private jet for their holiday trip.”

Sofia is apparently still “infatuated” with Disick, and her father Richie is making “more of an effort” now.

The source said, “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. Lionel can see how happy Sofia is though so he is definitely making more of an effort with Scott.”

“He is a really honest, up front kind of guy and feels like his father-daughter relationship with Sofia is more important than anything so he’s trying to be there for Sofia and to be supportive of her despite his reservations about her relationship. They all had a really great holiday together though and progress is for sure being made between Lionel and Scott,” the source explained.

In 2017, Sofia commented on her dad’s reaction to her relationship with him standing next to her. She awkwardly said, “He’s good. He’s been very nice. He’s been very cool. He’s very supportive, whatever that means.”

Lionel Richie himself told Daily Telegraph later, “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.”

Sofia Richie has also appeared on Keeping Up with the Kardashians with Disick.
