Lionel Richie, the American Musician’s secret relationship in Scandinavia
Posted by African Press International on July 30, 2009
Lionel Richie, the American musician, composer and songwriter may soon have some explaining to do if he has kept his relationship secret from his present family. His outside marriage secret relationship will soon come out in the open. It is said that the relationship to a woman in Scandinavia developed when the singer was on his singing tour that took him to a number of European countries. The woman in question has told API that she will soon come out in the open about her relationship to the singer. She has, however, not released much details as to what kind of relationship that has developed but says she will put out details in the coming weeks.
What is not known is how the musician will react to the news when made public because the secret connection, if� not known to his present wife, will most probably cause a rift in the family.
Richie’s daughter Nicole expressed satisfaction with her father because he is good in helping her whenever he can by taking care of his granddaughter Harlow. Lionel Richie appeared with Nicole recently on Larry King live and both demonstrated proverbial skills when explaining how the family is getting along. Nicole told Larry King that her father means a lot in her life now. Richie is a grandfather and is said to be doing well in his new role babysitting granddaughter Harlow.
Richie’s daughter will most probably be devastated to find out that her father whom she now has great respect for, has a secret relationship with another woman in Scandinavia. Lionel Richie was once quoted saying: “�Forget about surviving 40 years in the music business. Just surviving 27 years of Nicole Richie has been a struggle-and-a-half, I want to tell you. I stand here as a survivor, I want you to know, for all the parents out there.� He told the world on how happy he is that Nicole accepted to be rehabilitated. Richie while opening up about his problems with Nicole has stated that he daughter had lost direction saying� �She went from, �Dad, I don�t care. Whatever you say.� to �Wash your hands, dad.� and �Be quiet, dad.��It�s a whole new sound of the house.�
Observers now think that the situation Richie will fall into when the secret relationship is made public will poison the new-found warm relationship with his daughter Nicole and granddaughter Harlow.
The woman who now claims to have a relationship to the singer when asked why she wants to make public the information has told API that she has decided to do so because the singer has not fulfilled his part of the deal.
When pressed further to give details on what deal there is between her and Richie, she declined to give details but stated that the singer has not been committed enough to his obligations. Adding that the singer caused her relocate to another country and has been reluctant to be totally committed as agreed between the two. She says the singer was supposed to relocate as well but has shown signs of reluctance to do so within the time stipulated as per their mutual agreement.
It is a known fact that the singer has a family in the US and what a relocation would mean to his family is not yet known.
API has tried to reach Lionel Richie or his spokesperson for comment but with no success.
