Los Angeles, CA, United States (4E) – Sofia Richie and Justin Bieber have become the talk of the town in the past weeks and she is speaking about the “Sorry” singer for the first time citing that they have a special relationship.

The daughter of Lionel Richie recently went to Mexico with Bieber to celebrate her 18th birthday and she talked all about it in her interview with Billboard. Sofia also covered the latest issue of the magazine and she also touched on the subjects of modeling, music, and having personal time to herself.

When Billboard asked Sofia about the real status of her relationship with Bieber since they were seen packing on the PDA during their Mexico trip, she just answered that they have a special relationship. She then gushed about Bieber, "Justin is very easy to talk to, and that’s hard to find with people in Los Angeles."

The 18-year-old no longer elaborated on the nature of their relationship but as per the photos showing them as well as the ones they upload on their social media accounts, the two are more than just friends. Bieber event went as far as deleting his Instagram account in order to protect Sofia after his fans bashed her as well as getting into an Instagram comment battle with his ex-girlfriend, Selena Gomez.

After their Cabo vacation, Sofia and Bieber were seen separately. Bieber went hiking while she walked the runway for Kanye West’s Yeezy Season 4 fashion show in New York.

More on her modelling career, Sofia said that she is happy with her career path as she has appeared on Elle, Vanity Fair, and Vogue China. However, her father, being a musician that he is, sometimes tries to convince her to be in the music business. She said that Lionel usually invites musicians at their home such as her brother-in-law Joel Madden and Pharrell Williams.

Sofia has been playing the piano since she was seven. She also started singing at the age of five. However, she was not able to handle the pressure. She shared, "Everyone had their own idea of what my music should sound like, and I just wanted to be an individual. I stepped back and said, ‘I need to re-evaluate this.’"

Bieber is yet to comment.
