Justin Bieber is NOT scared of Sofia Richie’s famous dad, Lionel Richie, despite a made-up tabloid report. Gossip Cop can exclusively bust this claim. We’re told it’s “complete BS”

According to Star, Lionel doesn’t trust Bieber and wants to confront the pop star about his relationship with his daughter. A so-called “source” tells the magazine, “Sofia is 18, so she’s old enough to make her own decisions, but that doesn’t mean Lionel’s happy with her choices. He thinks Justin is bad news.”

The tabloid’s ill-informed insider further claims Lionel “wants to sit down with Justin and make sure he knows the consequences should anything happen to his little girl.” The outlet’s alleged “source” adds, “Every guy dreads meeting his girlfriend’s dad, but Justin knows Lionel has never been his biggest fan.” But Gossip Cop checked in with a source close to the situation, who exclusively assures us the tabloid’s story is “complete BS.” Bieber isn’t scared of Lionel, nor is the R&B artist planning a confrontational “sit-down” with his daughter’s boyfriend.

Unfortunately, we’re not surprised by the publication’s untrue tale. Star’s sister publication, OK!, also arbitrarily dragged one of Sofia’s famous family members into a bogus story involving Bieber. Gossip Cop recently debunked that magazine for wrongly reporting Nicole Richie told her sister Sofia to “ditch” Bieber because he’s supposedly “a bad influence.” But no such conversation took place, and this latest report involving Sofia’s father is equally false.
