Lionel Richie’s youngest child, Sofia Richie, is growing into a beautiful young lady. She’s 17 years old and will be making 18 this year. She has also carved out a nice living for herself and is earning some major bread these days.

How so you ask? Well Sofia is a very in-demand teen model and last year she landed a new contract with singer, MaDonna’s, clothing label, Material Girl, where she is the new face of the brand. MaDonna’s clothing is sold in Macy’s and has been very popular with the younger generation. That isn’t the only major moves Sofia is making with her modeling career, she also made her New York Fashion Week debut in February of this year (2016), where she modeled the runway for¬†American Heart Association’s Go Red For Women Red Dress Collection show. And Sofia’s resume’ doesn’t stop there, she’s modeled for the popular upscale retailer,, Elle Magazine, Vanity Fair, Who What Wear, Teen Vogue Magazine, and V Magazine. Can we say ‘cha ching?!!’

It looks like Lionel’s little gil is learning how to earn big bucks like her pops, although she has a long way to go before she can hit his $200MILLION mark.

When Sofia isn’t modeling, she’s filling her days up with her 21 year old boyfriend, Jake. Some have questioned their relationship because Jake is 21 and Sofia is 17, but they have ignored those who question their relationship and have been together for over a year and a half now.¬†They began dating when he was approximately 19 and she was 16.

After seeing Michael Jackson’s daughter, Paris, date her new 26 year old boyfriend while she was still 17 (she’s just turned 18), it looks like when it comes to kids of wealthy celebs, things tend to be a little more aggressive with these age differences, than with those of us who come from regular society where a minor dating a grown up is off limits…period. On the flip side, it looks like Lionel Richie is cool with his daughter’s boyfriend, so who are we to judge, right? Check out pics below of Sofia and her man, whom she’s now recently started being affectionately seen with in public…
