Keeping each other company. Justin Bieber and Sofia Richie have been practically inseparable lately. The 22-year-old pop superstar and the 17-year-old model (and sister of Nicole Richie) have been spotted hanging out on several occasions over the past week.
A source tells Us Weekly that the pair are casually seeing each other, but it’s nothing more than that right now.
Last Friday, August 5, the longtime pals were photographed almost holding hands while climbing over uneven terrain during a seaside stroll in Laguna Beach. They laughed and joked around while observing a seal resting on nearby rocks.
The Material Girl model was also seen leaving Bieber’s home on Tuesday morning, August 9, wearing a pair of printed pajama pants.
The following day, the “Sorry” singer and the model went for a hike in the Hollywood Hills, and both looked relaxed and happy. Later the same day, the duo were seen boarding a private jet at Van Nuys airport and heading to Japan, where Bieber is playing two shows on Saturday and Sunday.
It seems Bieber may still be playing the field, though. He only recently returned from his Hawaiian vacation, where he was photographed completely naked with several models. The “Let Me Love You” crooner ditched his clothes and skinny-dipped with Australian model Sahara Ray and some of her friends. The pics were published by the New York Daily News just days after Bieber’s rival Orlando Bloom stripped down and went paddleboarding stark naked with bikini-clad girlfriend Katy Perry in Sardinia, Italy.
