Lionel Richie is not blaming Justin Bieber for his daughter Sofia’s alleged “out-of-control” behavior, despite a new fabricated report. Gossip Cop can exclusively correct this made-up claim. We’re told it’s “not true.”

According to the repeatedly discredited Celeb Dirty Laundry, Bieber and Sofia are in “trouble” with her legendary father, Lionel, who’s supposedly “worried” about the model’s relationship with the young singer. Without providing any specifics, the unreliable website simply states that Bieber is a “bad influence” on Lionel’s “out-of-control daughter.” What’s more, the outlet alleges that Bieber “used” Sofia over the summer, contending he was “caught dating several other women,” including Bronte Blampied.

The often disproven site throws out without furnishing proof that Lionel is “furious” with his daughter Sofia for dating Bieber. And, as a result, Bieber is “scared to even meet him,” asserts CDL. The webloid then editorializes that Lionel “has every right to be concerned about her welfare.”

Of course, the outlet doesn’t give a single example of Sofia acting “out-of-control.” Nor does the site have evidence that Bieber “used” Sofia or that Lionel has reason to be “concerned” about her welfare. It’s simply a collection of baseless allegations.

Despite the fact the webloid began its article with a headline that mistakenly spelled Lionel’s last name as “Ritchie,” Gossip Cop still thoroughly investigated its reporting. As noted, there’s nothing to support that Sofia is “out-of-control.” Additionally, Bieber was not “caught” with other women. While in the UK for the V Festival, Bieber hung out with Blampied because she’s a good friend of Sofia’s.

Actually, far from using Sofia, the young singer hasn’t been anything but supportive of her. Bieber deleted his Instagram in August in response to fans making hateful comments about Sofia on his account. And, as Gossip Cop previously reported, Bieber is not scared to meet Lionel Richie. In fact, they hung out six years ago at the Grammys (photo above). Regardless, a source close to the Richies exclusively assures Gossip Cop that the latest tale about Lionel blaming Bieber for Sofia’s supposedly “out-of-control” behavior is 100 percent “not true.”
