Justin Bieber And Sofia Richie Have Apparently Split Up


After being nearly inseparable over the last month or so, Justin Bieber and Sofia Richie might have just called it quits on their unconfirmed relationship.

While many fans suspected Bieber to be dating Lionel Richie's 18-year-old daughter, the pair never actually confirmed they were together in the first place.

When Lionel Richie was asked about his daughter's relationship with Bieber, he said he was given "strict orders" not to speak about it.

Instead of issuing a statement or answering a burning question in a tell-all interview themselves, Justin and Sofia let their trips to Japan and Mexico, as well as their shameless PDA, do all the talking.

Now, it turns out the honeymoon could be over and both stars decided to move on and see other people. Ouch! 

According to TMZ, sources close to the couple are reporting that Justin Bieber and Sofia Richie, who were never "that serious to begin with," have stopped hanging out and talking altogether.

Why? No one really knows -- yet. But at the end of the day, Bieber is 22 and Richie JUST turned 18. If you were expecting a long-term relationship, a marriage, kids and a prenuptial agreement, you might've jumped the gun.

Either way, I'll admit it's a bit weird to hear of their sudden split.

I mean, isn't Justin Bieber the same dude that hung out with Sofia during a getaway trip to Mexico for her birthday just last month?!

He even skipped the VMAs this year to spend time with her.

Oh, and remember the time he deleted his Instagram and lashed out at his loyal "Beliebers" all over Sofia?!


Not to mention, Bieber was seen struggling to pay for his Subway sandwich on September 1 while Sofia Richie waited in the car. A fan offered to pay for the sandwich since his card was being declined, but that's not the point...

The point is, JB has basically dedicated the last couple of months solely to Sofia Richie -- and now they're reportedly DONE.

This makes Taylor Swift and Tom Hiddleston's three-month stint seem like an eternity, doesn't it?

Despite the recent split between The Biebs and Sofia Richie, both stars have been busy with their lives and show no signs of heartbreak on either side.

Instead, Justin's gearing up for a few upcoming tour dates in Paris. I highly doubt Sofia will be joining him on this one.

Hey, it's a good thing Sofia didn't get a tattoo dedicated to Justin after walking the runway during Kanye's Season 4 show earlier this month!

Smart move.
