"I told her, "I wish you lots of failure, young, '" he told reporters at an "American Idol" event, according to E!"

"We're in a business where it's how you recover and "yes, yes, yes" does not feel awful, so you have to get smacked in the face", Lionel told reporters at an American Idol event. "She sings too. I'm so excited about her". I definitely think this trip, out of the other trips we've been on, has a little bit more pressure because the truth of the matter is, there are camera crews everywhere, tons of people walking around that Kourtney and I have known for over 10 years...

The four-time Grammy victor - who is also dad to Nicole Richie, 38, and Miles Richie, 25 - recalled that when Nicole was four years old, she was part of a talent show.

"When Nicole was about four years old, she went on a talent show", he remembered. And, before she went out to do her act, they announced her as "Lionel Richie's daughter" and "she froze". It's hard. I don't want her to feel out of place, I don't want her to feel like she's not as comfortable as I am, . She said, "Dad I don't want to be here", the legendary performer recalled. She recently told Entertainment Tonight that she would not be appearing on KUWTK anymore, choosing to focus on her acting career.

"She's got the attitude".

"If Kim or one of the older sisters invites Sofia anywhere, she drops everyone else - including her family - like a hot potato", the insider said.

"She's got the attitude", Richie noted of Sofia.

While he may practiced a bit of the tough love treatment when Sofia was small, he claims she's "doing fabulous" now that she's a little older and wiser. Lionel Richie says that doesn't work, and parents will understand that.
