Thirty-six hours before her eighteenth birthday, Sofia Richie sat down with Billboard magazine for a casual cover shoot, where she opened up about her “special relationship” with Justin Bieber, and what growing up famous has been like for her.
Unlike her boyfriend Justin Bieber, who shut down his Instagram account after receiving negative comments about their relationship, Sofia isn’t bothered by online trolls. And she has her sister Nicole to thank for that. “I remember the paparazzi and the s*** people would say to Nicole, and she wouldn’t respond,” Sofia said. “I’m going to be real with you: It. Doesn’t. Bother. Me. As long as I’m happy.”

Well, it looks like she is happy — especially in the photos from her eighteenth birthday getaway with the Biebs.
“We have a special relationship,” she said about him. “Justin is very easy to talk to, and that’s hard to find with people in Los Angeles.”
