Sofia Richie has ignited her fair share of heartwarming romances while growing up in the limelight, but they haven’t always ended happily.
Sofia Richie Dating History
When she started dating Justin Bieber in August 2016, Lionel Richie’s daughter attracted the attention of people. She opened out to Billboard about her “unique bond” with the “Sorry” crooner a month later. Playing coy about her relationship with Bieber at the time, the model claimed, “Justin is really easy to talk to, and that’s rare to find with people in Los Angeles.
Despite the short duration of their relationship, the couple shared photos of their romantic trips to Mexico and Japan on social media. As a result of their frequent posting, Selena Gomez, the Canadian’s ex, weighed in after a contentious online argument that led Justin Bieber to delete his Instagram account out of respect for Sofia.
The “Peaches” singer at the time captioned a post, “If you guys are really fans you wouldn’t be so cruel to people like that,” to which Gomez replied, “If you can’t handle the hate then stop sharing images of your girlfriend hahaha – it should be special between you two only.” “Be patient with your supporters. They cherish you.”
The California native broke up with Justin Bieber and immediately fell in love with Scott Disick. Prior to their breakup in 2015, the reality star dated Kourtney Kardashian, with whom he has three children, intermittently for nine years. Disick and Sofia were discovered having a sexual encounter in the South of France two years later.
In September 2017, a source described the burgeoning affair to Us Weekly as “very odd.” Sofia had been a family friend for many years and was close to Kendall and Kylie [Jenner], in addition to the age gap. But over time, the Kardashian-Jenner family came to support the union. There is “no conflict” between Sofia and the famous family, according to a different source who spoke to Us in August 2018. They believed Sofia was a “wonderful” match for Disick.
Sources revealed two years later that the couple had broken up after a brief separation in May 2020. A source claims that Disick was the one to start the split. In August 2020, an informant noted, “Friends attributed their 15-year age gap as an issue. They gradually drifted away because “[Scott] is] at a very different position in his life, extremely focused on a more tranquil lifestyle, his kids, and his investment enterprises and Sofia… is really still trying to figure out what she wants to do.”
Disick and the Tommy Hilfiger model were at odds because of his association with the founder of the brand Poosh, according to a different source. The New Yorker said that Sofia had given him an “ultimatum” to choose between her and the E! star before they called it quits on a March 2021 episode of Keeping Up With the Kardashians. After her breakup with Disick, Sofia was rumoured to have dated many men, including Elliot Grainge. In April 2021, the couple declared their Instagram romance official. One year later, the pair were engaged.

In 2012, Sofia and the singer of “Summertime in Paris” had a brief romance. In September 2020, the two stirred dating rumours when reuniting in Malibu, California, and their previous romance surfaced once more. Smith remarked on iHeartRadio’s On-Air With Ryan Seacrest at the time, “I and Sofia have been friends for like 10 years,” denying any romantic involvement.
The two had a brief relationship between 2015 and 2016, and since their breakup, they appear to still be friends.
In the summer of 2016, when they were photographed leaving Los Angeles hotspot 1OAK hand in hand, rumours began to circulate that Sofia was dating the French soccer star, who is 12 years older than she is.
