Sofia Richie in Black Dress With Jaden Smith During Leaving Romantic Dinner at Giorgio Baldi in Santa Monica 02-05-2021
Sofia Richie has been linked to a few men since breaking things off with Scott Disick in the summer, most recently seen canoodling on the beach in Miami with billionaire shipping heir Gil Ofer.
On Friday evening however, the 22-year-old model daughter of Lionel Richie – who is reportedly ‘still single’ – was spotted grabbing dinner with her long-time friend Jaden Smith, 22, in Santa Monica.
The pair stepped out after a grabbing a table for two at Giorgio Baldi amid LA County’s newly reopened outdoor dining, after Smith and Richie said in the past that they are ‘just friends.’
Richie looked cool in all black as she stepped out in a leather jacket and jeans with a sheer bodysuit, appearing makeup free for the outing.
The singer-actor son of Will Smith and Jada Pinkett kept it casual in distressed jeans with painted accents and a bomber jacket over a hoodie, throwing on a pair of fresh white New Balances.
Both were suited up in face masks for the outing, continuing to protect themselves from the relentless COVID-19 virus following a major spike and two month stay-at-home order in LA.
When the pair were first spotted getting a bit handsy on the beach on Labor Day weekend, many were quick to guess that there was a budding romance.
Both shutdown any speculation that their 10 plus year friendship was anything more, with Smith telling Ryan Seacrest on his iHeartRadio show, ‘We’re just homies and we love each other.’
He also added that the longtime pals have been going to the beach together for nearly a decade, calling the day in question pure ‘fun.’
Since breaking things off with 37-year-old Disick in August following a three year romance, Richie has been shooting her shot on the dating scene as she was in a brief tryst with Hard Rock Hotel heir Matthew Morton in the fall and recently Ofer.
A celebrity in her own right, she seems to have developed a taste for wealthy heirs as Ofer is the son of Israeli-born Tanker Pacific founder Idan Ofer, who according to Forbes is the 494th richest man in the world with a net worth of just over $5 Billion.
The two were seen sharing a smooch session in South Beach days ago, but the romance seemed to be a matter of convenience as the Harvard graduate is currently pursuing his MBA at London Business School.
