The 18-year-old opens up about her famous squeeze

Sofia Richie, celebrity progeny and Yeezy model, is probably most well-known for being associated with Justin Bieber’s decision to make his Instagram account private recently after she endured cyberbullying from fans of the singer.

She became involved in one of a series of events involving Bieber and his ardent fans involving a brief interlude between the Promise singer and his ex, Selena Gomez, which spawned the very excellent hashtag, #SelenaEndedJustinParty.

In an interview with Billboard Thursday the model talked about her relationship with the Biebs.

We have a special relationship,” she said. “Justin is very easy to talk to, and that’s hard to find with people in Los Angeles.” As far as the drama that’s gone down, Richie is taking it in stride. “I’m going to be real with you: It. Doesn’t. Bother. Me. As long as I’m happy.”
