Sofia Richie and Elliot Grainge, whose father is Lucian Grainge, the CEO of Universal Music Group, first sparked romance rumors in April 2021 after stepping out for takeout at Matsuhisa Beverly Hills. Days later, the couple made their relationship Instagram official.
From the very beginning, Sofia’s father appeared to approve of this relationship.
“He thinks they are a perfect match and it was very natural progression for Sofia and Elliot to get together,” an insider told E! News in April 2021. “They are all family friends and Sofia and Elliot [started] hanging out more recently this year. She thinks he’s hilarious and loves that he is a chill guy.”
Although Sofia and Elliot weren’t close growing up, Lionel has been friends with Elliot’s father and has worked with him for years. According to the insider, Lionel “completely adores” his daughter’s partner.
