Musician Lionel Richie is not blaming pop singer Justin Bieber for his daughter Sofia Richie being "out of control".
The 67-year-old crooner knew his 18-year-old daughter, Sofia, was a handful even before she met the 22-year-old teen heartthrob.
Richie corrected an erroneous report that claimed he blamed Bieber for his daughter's behavior.
The blog, Celeb Dirty Laundry, claimed Sofia was "in trouble" with her famous father, Lionel, who was supposedly “worried” about his daughter’s relationship with the promiscuous pop star.
Gossip Cop blog reached out to Richie, who stated the report was simply "not true".
