Meet the Teenage Model Behind the Justin Bieber Instagram Scandal

We can thank Lionel Richie’s daughter Sofia for helping boot Bieber off Instagram.

Justin Bieber is making headlines again, for deleting his Instagram account after ex Selena Gomez accused him of cheating on social media. Although she’s caught in the crossfire, Bieb’s new squeeze, Sofia Richie, should be able to take the heat.

The 17-year-old model comes from one of the most talked-about families in Hollywood: her father is pop legend Lionel Richie, and her older sister is reality star Nicole Richie.

But Sofia is steadily building a name for herself beyond the shadow of a celebrity family and a superstar boyfriend. From the looks of her Instagram account, she’s got a rising modeling career and has already fronted for a number of glossy campaigns and editorials.

She’s also no stranger to a good yacht party.

Sofia is already laughing off the bad press, so expect her to take any hate from “Selenators” in stride.
