Formula One driver Lewis Hamilton doesn’t seem to have an issue with the 14-year age gap with his rumoured girlfriend Sofia, who is singer Lionel Richie’s daughter.
The 32-year-old British driver was seen with the 18-year-old model at the Sugarfish restaurant in Beverley Hills, recently. The couple enjoyed some sushi at the Japanese restaurant, it is learnt.
The couple were also spotted together at the Montage Hotel in the same region. Reports of a relationship between the F1 driver and the teenage model first emerged when they were seen together at last month’s Paris Fashion Week.
However, Sofia reportedly, wants to tread carefully knowing Hamilton’s extravagant life choices. The British racing champ has previously been linked to a number of good-looking women including singer Rita Ora and supermodel Barbara Palvin after he broke up with X-Factor judge Nicole Scherzinger.
Meanwhile, Sofia had a brief relationship with singer Justin Bieber, reported the Daily Star.
