Sofia Richie breaks silence on romance with Justin Bieber

“We have a special relationship”

Sofia Richie is finally dishing on exactly what it is she loves about her new man Justin Bieber.

In recent weeks the hot new couple haven’t been shy about their romance and now the 18-year-old is talking about what it’s like to date the pop star.

In an interview with Billboard magazine she said: 'We have a special relationship. Justin is very easy to talk to, and that's hard to find with people in Los Angeles.'

The pair were first linked last month when they were spotted holding hands on a romantic break in Hawaii.

They then travelled to Tokyo together and made their romance official as they were caught kissing.

They have since enjoyed a romantic trip to Mexico to celebrate Sofia's 18th birthday, or as she put it to Billboard, to mark her 'freedom!'

In the exclusive interview Sofia also revealed how her famous musician father Lionel Richie is encouraging her to follow in his footsteps.

She tells: 'One night he intercoms me, like, "Come have dinner in the studio. "So I go down and it's my dad and Pharrell Williams.

'I'm like, "I can't just sit here and casually have a dinner with you two! I'm so sorry, I've got to go back upstairs."'

While Sofia, who can sing and play piano, hasn't ruled out the idea of a musical career in future, she has taken a step back and decided to keep her options open.

'Everyone had their own idea of what my music should sound like, and I just wanted to be an individual. I stepped back and said, "I need to re-evaluate this,"'

But at 18, Sofia isn't simply sitting around and enjoying the pampered life of a Hollywood teenager.

The younger sister of Nicole Richie is flourishing in the modelling world and on Wednesday she walked in Kanye West's Yeezy Season 4 show.

Sofia also told Billboard she hopes to one day design her own fashion collection, saying: 'I love modeling because I get to see everything that inspires me. Then I go home and sketch.'

The blonde certainly looked like a pro as she graced the cover of the magazine while flashing underboob and her flat stomach, in a pulled up mesh tank top and white trousers.

Sofia posed inside an empty swimming pool alongside Rae Sremmurd's Khalif "Swae Lee" Brown and Aaquil "Slim Jimmi" Brown.

Inside the magazine she can be seen sporting the purple velvet crop top and lilac trousers she was seen wearing on her birthday at the end of last month, while perched on a diving board.
