Washington [US], September 12 (ANI): Less than a week after American actor saw Jaden Smith holding hands on the beach with model Sofia Richie, the actor in a new interview weighed on his friendship with the model and maintained that the two were merely old friends.
According to People Magazine, the singer who recently released his third studio album, ‘CTV3. Cool Tape Volume 3’ said, ‘You know. I don’t really look at the news, so I didn’t see it.’ On Friday’s show, On Television, with Ryan Seacrest, asked about their day’s romantic reports in the sun.
Sofia have been friends for like 10 years
He said, “But, me and Sofia have been friends for like 10 years. We’ve been going to the beach pretty consistently for 10 years too. But, yeah, we’re just homies and we love each other and it was fun.”
22-year-old actor Richie and Smith were pictured together on the Labour Day weekend. Weeks after her divorce from 37-year-old reality TV personality Scott Disick.
A source told People Magazine, “Sofia is having a fun summer. She stays with friends in Malibu and enjoys the beach. There have been guys around that she acted flirty with, but she doesn’t seem to be dating.”
The source said, “The vibe was different over the weekend though when she hung out with Jaden. They spent hours together on the beach. They kept flirting and hugging. Sofia looked very happy.”
Later, the source said that the couple at Nobu had dinner with their mates. “It was clear that they both loved to hang out. Jaden had his arm around Sofia, and she had a wide grin.
Richie and Disick called them to leave again last month after briefly reuniting this summer after a split earlier in the year.
At the time, the source told People Magazine that the couple had differing interests and could not make their relationship work.
“It’s always been difficult for them to balance their relationship with Scott’s family life,” said the source at the time of Disick. Who had three children with ex-Kourtney Kardashian.
