Who can blame Lionel Richie for being concerned about his teenage daughter dating an infamous playboy?

Sophia (19) and Scott Disick (34) went public with their relationship recently, after they were seen holding hands and locking lips on several occasions – and now Lionel has finally broken his silence on the hook-up.

Speaking to US Weekly at the American Idol auditions in New York, he was asked to share his thoughts on his daughter’s new paramour.

“I’m scared to death, are you kidding me?” the All Night Long crooner said bluntly.

“Have I been in shock?! I’m the dad, come on,” the 68-year-old added.

Scott recently put rumours to rest when he shared an Instagram story of himself snuggled up to his new girl.

The two have also been pictured smooching up a storm while on holiday in Mexico, as reported by The Sun.

A source told PEOPLE that Sophia is smitten with the father-of-three.

“It’s obvious that she looks up to Scott. She constantly giggles around him. They are very flirty,” the source confirmed.
