According to a report in the gossip portal TMZ, music sensation Justin Bieber and model Sofia Richie (daughter of Lionel Ritchie) have broken up. Quoting sources, it goes on to add that the two were never really serious in the first place despite vacationing in Mexico to bring in her 18th birthday in August. However, they have not been seen in public since then.
Neither seems too perturbed, the report adds. Sofia was spotted on Sunday night partying with friends at a restaurant. And Justin too is ready to mingle with other girls.
Mashable reports that while the two were together, very few of his fans seemed impressed. After an ugly spat with ex girlfriend Selena Gomez over a bunch of photos he added on his Instagram account back in August this year, the singer had deactivated his account.
The Beliebers, as the fans call themselves, dissed the 22-year-old singer after he posted some photos with his then ‘new’ girlfriend, Sofia. They were angry that she is trying to replace Selena and also that Justin was dating an underage girl and called her names. An angry Bieber first warned that if they didn’t behave, he would make the page private. Eventually, when Selena stepped in and the matter got really ugly, he deactivated his account.
