Justin Bieber Makes His Relationship With Sofia Richie Official — Well, Sort Of

Things are heating up between Sofia Richie and Justin Bieber. Following his headline-grabbing trip to Hawaii, the "Purpose" singer embarked on yet another trip to Japan, only this time he was accompanied by his rumored girlfriend, who also happens to be Nicole Richie's little sister. On Sunday, the two were spotted doing a little shopping at a mall in Tokyo, and throughout the past couple of days, the duo has been taking to Instagram to document their getaway.

While the two have yet to officially address the status of their relationship, Justin seemingly confirmed the rumors when he threatened to make his account private over the negative comments he received on social media in regard to Sofia. "I'm gonna make my Instagram private if you guys don't stop the hate this is getting out of hand, if you guys are really fans you wouldn't be so mean to people that I like," he wrote alongside a photo of him and the soon-to-be 18-year-old. Only time will tell if this relationship with Sofia is serious, or just ends up being another Summer fling.
