Earlier this Thursday, August 11, the model and youngest daughter of the Commodores lead singer Lionel Richie, Sofia Richie, uploaded pictures to her social media accounts in which she appears to be in Japan with the Canadian singer Justin Bieber.
The pictures have already made the rounds all over the internet and follow strong rumors of a relationship between the 17-year-old girl and the interpreter of the hit song ‘Sorry.’
Moreover, the pair has reportedly spent most of this last week together in California, where they have been spotted in various opportunities and locations adding to the theories of a romantic relationship brewing.
A couple of days ago, Richie and Bieber were seen at the Laguna Beach shore holding hands and hanging out while climbing the hills around the popular spot.
Moreover, some days later the young model was spotted leaving Bieber’s Toluca Lake house sporting a rather comfy outfit. The Calvin Klein underwear and designer sweatpants that Richie was wearing were eerily similar to a pair worn by the ‘Biebs’ a couple of months back.
The latest developments in the Richie-Bieber saga are fresh from today, as the pair was photographed boarding a private jet to an unknown destination. Images and video from Richie’s Snapchat and Instagram accounts confirm that she is currently in Japan with the 22-year-old pop star.

Bieber is set to perform two shows in Japan as part of his Purpose World Tour during the weekend at the Makuhari Messe convention center just outside of the capital Tokyo.
Just who is Sofia Richie?
Sofia Richie is a rising icon in the world of fashion and a prominent figure in social media, known mostly for being the daughter of the soul legend Lionel Richie and sister of the TV personality Nicole Richie.
Along with his older brother Miles, Sofia was born out of Lionel Richie’s second marriage with Diane Alexander. Alexander became notorious for her involvement with the “Hello” singer before their wedding, as he was still married to his first wife Brenda Harvey when she discovered their affair.
Sofia has mostly followed her big sister’s steps in the world of fashion, being featured in several fashion magazine covers and becoming the face of ‘Material Girl,’ the clothing line designed by Madonna, back in 2015. She hangs out in a tight-knit Hollywood circle that includes reality show stars Kylie and Kendall Jenner of “Keeping up with the Kardashians” fame.
