The legendary musician, 68, said he was ‘in shock’ over his youngest child’s choice of ‘sex addict’ boyfriend.
Speaking while promoting the new series of American Idol on Wednesday,
Lionel told US Weekly:
‘I’m scared to death, are you kidding me? Have I been in shock?! I’m the dad, come on.’
Sofia and Scott went public with their romance in late September after first being linked back in May, when they insisted they were just ‘homies’.
As well as being a self-confessed ‘sex addict’ and notorious womanizer, Scott is a father-of-three, raising three children, Mason, seven, Penelope, five, and Reign, two, with ex-girlfriend of 10 years Kourtney Kardashian, 38.
Earlier this week, Scott and Sofia were seen packing on the PDA during yet another romantic break, this time to Puerto Vallarta in Mexico.
