Sofia Richie is revealing why she won’t be a part of Keeping Up With The Kardashians next season. The 21-year-old model reasoned that she is focused on her acting career.
"I want to get into acting!" Lionel Richie’s daughter explained after an awkward pause. "I feel like, for a while, I kind of held back on things because I was afraid of failure, but 2020 is the year of no fear! I'm gonna be doing acting stuff really soon." She added, "Great things are happening and I'm really excited about it."
Back in October 2019, during season 17 of KUWTK, Sofia made her debut when she accompanied her boyfriend and his ex-girlfriend, Kourtney Kardashian, on a family trip. The Flip It Like Disick star, 36, opened up about the difficulties of trying to make his loved ones feel comfortable with each other.
“Traveling with a family like this is a unique situation that not everyone does. I definitely think this trip, out of the other trips we’ve been on, has a little bit more pressure because the truth of the matter is, there are camera crews everywhere,” Scott explained. “Tons of people walking around that Kourtney and I have known for over 10 years. Sofia has never really done anything like this before. It’s hard. I don’t want her to feel out of place, I don’t want her to feel like she’s not as comfortable as I am. I’m just trying to be cautious of everyone’s feelings.”
Back in 2017, Sofia and Scott began dating. Prior to his relationship with the model, Scott dated the Poosh creator, 40, from 2006 to 2015. The two share three children – sons Mason and Reign and daughter Penelope.
Like Scott, Kourtney also moved on and began dating her on-and-off again beau, Younes Bendjima.
