Nicole Richie did NOT “slam” sister Sofia Richie for dating Justin Bieber, despite a report. Gossip Cop can debunk the story.

According to RadarOnline, Nicole is “meddling in her younger sister Sofia’s love life!” A so-called “source” is quoted as saying, “Nicole is flipping out right now over the fact that her sister Sofia is dating Justin Bieber! Nicole told Sofia that she is just setting herself up for disaster and it has caused a huge rift between the two sisters. Sofia told Nicole to just mind her own business.”

“Sofia also told Nicole that she and Justin are for real. But Nicole thinks she knows how this will end and she is only trying to protect Sofia from getting hurt,” continues the site’s supposed snitch. The alleged tipster adds, however, “Sofia is not going to listen to anything that anyone has to say — not even her own family members.”

Does any of this sound familiar? It should. Last week, RadarOnline’s sister publication OK! ran a similar story about the siblings clashing due to Bieber, with it being claimed Nicole told Sofia to ditch the “bad influence.” Gossip Cop, however, was told that the Richie sisters had no such argument over the singer.

Furthermore, we were also told that while Nicole is understandably protective of her little sister, she is in no way interfering with Sofia’s love life. That hasn’t changed. RadarOnline is simply late and wrong.
