Lionel Richie is still struggling over his daughter Sofia’s romance with serial sleaze Scott Disick!

Now he’s insisted in an Australian interview: “It’s just a phase — and I’m going to stand real still in the corner, get me a good drink and not make too much noise!”

But, as earlier revealed by The National ENQUIRER, that’s after the pop legend asked her big sister, Nicole Richie, to lay down the law!

“Nicole made a lot of bad choices,” spilled a snitch, “but completely turned her life around.

“Lionel thinks she’d have more sway over her sister because of that!”

The hard-partying Kardashian baby daddy is 15 years older than Sofia, and insiders say that the “American Idol” judge hasn’t changed his mind about Scott over the past several months that the two have been together.

“He knows that Sofia looks up to Nicole,” dished the spy. “He was praying Nicole can save her!”
