Poor Sofia Richie! The daughter of Lionel Richie and Diana Alexander Richie probably wanted to party All Night Long in celebration of her milestone birthday, but sadly she suffered another setback. It’s safe to say that Justin Bieber’s girlfriend hasn’t been having the best time of it lately, and it looked like the teen – who is celebrating her 18th birthday today (Aug 24) – was set for another disappointing delay. Richie took to Snapchat last night (Aug 23) to reveal that she had been forced to visit hospital just hours before her special day.
One Direction may currently be on a break but they have been named as the Best Live Act at the O2 Silver Clef Awards for the second time. The boyband – comprised of Harry Styles, Niall Horan, Liam Payne and Louis Tomlinson – scored more than 60% of the votes to claim the prestigious prize, which is the only award at the ceremony to be voted for by the public.
Lionel Richie is living his life with new meaning following the deaths of his close friends Muhammad Ali, Prince and David Bowie. The legendary singer, 66, is still processing the loss of the stars from his era, but has admitted that their untimely deaths have helped him to adopt a different attitude. Sadly, Bowie lost his battle with cancer in January, aged 69, and Prince was found dead at his Paisley Park home near Minneapolis, Minnesota in April, aged 57.
Natalie Cole tragically died of congestive heart failure on New Year’s Eve at 65-years-old, and the singing legend was laid to rest yesterday.
The Rolling Stones’ legend, Ronnie Wood, surprised everybody when it was announced that he is expecting twins with his wife Sally at the age of 68. Speaking in a new interview, Lionel admitted that Ronnie hadn’t inspired him to add to his brood, explaining: “When you can defy the laws of gravity anyway, of course he can have kids - twins, to be exact. The 66-year-old has three children, 34-year-old Nicole, 21-year-old Miles, and 17-year-old Sofia, and is currently dating Lisa Parigi, but while his fellow rockstars are still living pretty crazy lifestyles, Lionel is happy with a more chilled out life.
Lionel Richie has admitted (well, joked) that he contacted his lawyers about trademarking ‘Hello’ after Adele’s comeback single of the same name.
Nicole Richie first made her name as Paris Hilton’s BFF in the hugely underrated and much-missed show, The Simple Life. Anyways, what many people didn’t know at the time is that Nicole got her famous name after being adopted by singing legend, Lionel Richie, and the 66 year old has now opened up about the adoption, and how he first took little Nic in as a favour for his friends.
