If you had only a passing familiarity with Sofia Richie before watching “Keeping Up With the Kardashians,” the reality television show altered all of that instantly. The daughter of soul musician Lionel Richie earned a name for herself on-screen and in the media limelight when she began dating Scott Disick, Kourtney Kardashian's longtime boyfriend, ex-husband, and father of her three children.
They were together for a short period until they split up. We all knew that Disick was never indeed over Kardashian and that he was only waiting for the right moment to sweep her off her feet once more – yet despite all odds, he and Sofia managed to maintain their relationship for a quite a long time despite their differences.
In 2017, according to Cosmopolitan, Sofia and Disick fueled relationship rumors that continued into 2018. The pair were dating when the then-19-year-old was photographed with the Talentless founder in Malibu, and a photo taken in the exact location appeared to corroborate their relationship. Sofia made an appearance on Disick's Instagram a couple of months later, and the rest, as they say, is history.
Even though the pair remained together from 2017 to 2020, their split was everything from smooth. Sofia effectively handed Disick an ultimatum — either her or Kardashian – and the reality star did not give her the response she was seeking.
Sofia and Disick's love relationship ended, and the social media sensation made it evident that she was prepared and willing to move on. Her admirers are in for a treat as she shares some exciting and romantic news with them.
Sofia Richie is ready to be with Elliot Grainge for the rest of her life. The model announced her engagement to her music executive boyfriend on her Instagram account on April 20.
“Forever isn't long enough, @elliot,” Sofia Richie, the 23-year-old daughter of Lionel Richie and Diane Alexander, captioned a social media post that included a photo of the proposal and her stunning ring. “Forever isn't long enough, @elliot,” Sofia said in the post's caption.

Following the pair's announcement that they were ready to take the next step in their relationship, “It's something Sofia wants and is looking forward to,” a source said. “They are a fantastic fit, and things are going quite well between them. Sofia and Elliot are presently living together, and the transition has been quite smooth and painless.”
According to the insider, Sofia and Elliott have a wide range of interests, with Sofia stating that she “loves to cook for Elliot and plan fun things for them to do.” Sofia, who was previously involved with Scott Disick, enjoys a change of pace with this relationship.
“They have built a solid friendship recently, and Sofia appreciates that they are free of turmoil,” a source told. “She likes how chilled and quiet Elliot is, and the two of them have a great time together, even when they're simply hanging out at home,” says the author. “They have truly formed a solid bond recently,” the source said.
Speculation of a romance between Sofia and Elliot, whose father is Lucian Grainge, the CEO of Universal Music Group, began in April 2021 when the two were photographed leaving Matsuhisa Beverly Hills for takeaway. A few days later, the pair decided to make their relationship public on Instagram.
And from the outset of their relationship, Sofia's father looked to support their union. A source told in April 2021 that he believes Sofia and Elliot are a “wonderful match” and that their relationship was “a very natural path for them to come together.”
“They are all family friends, and Sofia and Elliot have only lately begun to hang out with one another this year. She thinks he's humorous and appreciates that he's a laid-back man.”
And even though Sofia and Elliot were not close as children, Lionel has been friends with Elliot's father for many years and has collaborated on several projects. According to the informant, Lionel “really likes” the man dating his daughter.
Following the announcement of Sofia's engagement, Sofia's sister, Nicole Richie, voiced her delight at the news of the couple's new relationship status.
“I can't wait to figure out how to make this all about me,” Nicole commented on Instagram Stories after posting a photo of the engagement proposal. You've got to love your family!
