Richie grew up with a great passion for music like her dad. Sofia started to sing her first songs at age 5. She also learned to play the piano at age 7. She had an opportunity to appear at her father's shows. When she was 14 years old, she took vocal lessons from Beyonce's vocal coach, Tim Carter. She also spent a lot of time in the studio with her brother-in-law Joel Madden. Despite her musical successes and talent, she decided to leave the music career. She explained that she was often compared to her famous father, and it was difficult for her to keep at a certain level.
Richie spent some time at Oaks Christian School. This school is also called "Celebrity High". Sofia got the education at home while her father was on tour. She was interested in sports and played soccer until age 16.

Scott Disick was happy that his girlfriend Sofia was getting close to Kylie Jenner. It happened after Sofia Richie joined her girls’ squad on a trip to Turks and Caicos to celebrate the launch of the Lip Kit queen’s skincare line. For Scott it was a sign that Sofia has been further accepted in the Kardashians family.
