Lionel Richie is not in denial.
He’s well aware of what’s going on between his teenage daughter and Scott Disick.
But that doesn’t mean the legendary singer has to like it… or even truly accept it as legitimate.
In an interview with The Daily Telegraph this weekend, the Grammy Award winner addressed the often-drunk elephant in the room, talking for the first time about Sofia Richie choosing to actually date Kourtney Kardashian’s baby daddy.
Why would anyone choose to be with Scott Disick?
It’s a question to which Lionel does not have an answer.
“She’s 19,” he told the aforementioned publication, adding:
“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.”
That’s likely the smartest course of action.
No one out there thinks Sofia will marry Scott or anything… so the relationship will likely fizzle out.
It’s just taking longer to do so than we previously imagined it would.
What looked like a fling at first has evolved (devolved?) into a full-blown, steady romance, as Richie posted the above photo of herself with Disick in Valentine’s Day.
She went on to write that Disick gifted her with flowers for the occasion.
Moreover, the C-Listers have taken trips to Mexico and Italy together.
What the heck, right?!?
There’s a 15-year age difference between Sofia and Scott and, in case we haven’t mentioned it yet, the latter is Scott Disick.
He likes to drink more than he likes to hang out with his kids and he’s never come across as anything more than an attention-seeking lugnut.
Added Lionel in his interview:
“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.’
“My daughter is getting me back for my Afro days!”
This is one of those times where someone is clearly joking and yet… not.
Asked what Disick is like as a person, Lionel had only nice things to say. He didn’t take any bait.
“From what I met of him he’s a very nice guy,” the artist said.
Asked why he’s with Lionel’s child, Disick allegedly recently praised her affection for hot sex.
Sorry, Lionel. We should have warned you prior to posting a link to that story.
Lionel Richie will soon co-host the new version of American Idol, which premieres on ABC on March 11.
So you’ll be seeing a lot more of him over the coming weeks and months, just as he hopes to stop seeing Sofia and Scott together.
“When you hang around the reality world, who knows what you are really doing?” Lionel concluded.
“This is a well-oiled machine, the Kardashian machine. I don’t really know what to think. I told Sofia I will have no opinion.
“I’ll continue to be my cheerful self and move on.”

Last night on Teen Mom OG Season 5 Episode 5, Catelynn Lowell and Tyler Baltierra finally got the chance to see their first-born child.
Of course, this was not without complications.
If you watch Teen Mom OG online, you know that they’ve wanted to see Carly for years, plural, and now her adoptive parents agreed.
Of course, their proposed date conflicted with a vacation they already planned, which left an already struggling Lowell extremely upset.
Cate felt that Carly’s mother, Teresa, was making thing more complicated than necessary, though they were able to find a new date.
When they got to North Carolina to see Carly, Tyler said that he wasn’t as nervous as in the past about what the family thinks of them.
“I love them and I think they’re good people. They’re raising her right,” he said, and beyond that, “I just don’t really care, I guess, anymore.”
Cliffhanger alert: They will meet Carly NEXT week.
Meanwhile, Farrah Abraham returned from traveling overseas, realizing that she needed to fix her relationship with her mother Debra.
If not for her, for Sophia, who she knows should have a figure like her in her grandmother in her life … Farrah is ever-so selfless, people.
Farrah also helped her dad’s girlfriend pick out a ring, proving to be on better terms with her father’s significant other than her mom’s.
Naturally, with all these things going on, and a lot on her plate career-wise (see Farrah Abraham’s LinkedIn page), she had this idea:
Take a drop with Debra and Sophia to Italy, and also invite Michael and his girlfriend, and help plan Michael’s proposal to her as well.
What could possibly go wrong?!
In Tennessee, Maci Bookout asked Ryan Edwards to please take a drug test before seeing their son Bentley again, but he never responded.
To her. He did talk to his wife.
Edwards told Mackenzie Standifer that he did submit to the test, but knew that the drugs he’d used wouldn’t be out of his system yet.
Ryan did eventually talk to Maci, only to flip the script and tell her she was only hurting Bentley by keeping them apart with her actions.
After she didn’t respond, he said he’d be taking her to court over this. Yeah. Cue Mackenzie ranting against MTV in 5 … 4 … 3 …
Finally, Amber Portwood was having second thoughts about her breakup with Matt Baier, though she obviously got over that.
Amber, of course, is now expecting a child with Andrew Glennon, who she met while filming Marriage Boot Camp … with Baier.
That escalated fast, yes, so what we’re seeing on Teen Mom OG feels like a lifetime ago even though it’s only like six months.
On this week’s show, Baier was reaching out to her, and just when she thought this was over she realized she still had feelings.
She admitted she loved him, considered flying out to Las Vegas to see him and wondered if there was still something there.
(Besides Jennifer Conlon.)
Her friends and family felt she should reconsider this, that she deserved more, etc. Sage advice from the Portwood crew …
