Sofia Richie Relationship
Her first relationship was with American guitarist Jake Andrews in 2015-2016. After that, Sofia Richie met Justin Bieber in 2016. They traveled to Mexico and Japan together and posted their memories on Instagram. However, their getaway photos sparked controversy when some people sent hateful comments to Sofia Richie. Justin Bieber asked them not to be rude to Sofia Richie. Selena Gomez responded that she shouldn’t post pictures with his girlfriend if she doesn’t want that kind of reaction from fans.
After Sofia Richie and Justin Bieber ended their six-week relationship, the American model resumed dating Scott Disick in 2017. The paparazzi captured the couple in the south of France. People were skeptical about the relationship with the American socialite because he is known to be in an on-again, off-again relationship with Kourtney Kardashian. But it turned out that the Kardashian-Jenner family supported the relationship. Sofia Richie and Scott Disick ended their relationship after two years. Their friends speculate that it might be because of their 15-year age difference.
Sofia Richie then started a relationship with Cha Cha Matcha owner Matthew Morton in October 2020. Her family also liked Matthew Morton but their relationship could not last.
In April 2021, Richie was in a relationship with music executive Elliot Grainge, who is the son of Lucian Grainge, chairman and CEO of Universal Music Group. On April 20, 2022, she announced her engagement to Grainge on her Instagram. Richie converted to Judaism before the wedding and they married on April 22, 2023, in the south of France. Elliot gave Richie a six-carat emerald-cut diamond in a platinum solitaire setting from designer Stephanie Gottlieb.
