LAS VEGAS (KTNV) - Lionel Richie won't be performing at Planet Hollywood on Wednesday, according to a press "Due to the devastating California Wildfires, and helping family evacuate to a safer place, I unfortunately have to cancel my show tonight," Richie said in the statement.

Speaking about her dad's reaction to her romance with the 'Keeping Up With The Kardashians' star, Sofia said: "He's good. He's been very nice. He's been very cool. He's very supportive, whatever that means."

However, he had previously admitted he was "scared to death" about the pair's new romance.

He said: "Have I been in shock?! I'm the dad, come on. I'm scared to death, are you kidding me?"

Whilst a source added: "He thinks Scott is the worst person she could ever see and that he raised her better than that. He thinks she should have more respect for herself as a young woman. Lionel knows Scott's playboy ways and he doesn't want to see his daughter get hurt."

And Lionel - who has three kids - would love to expand his brood and have more children eventually.

He said: "I'm willing to become a father again. I might have just let a secret slip there, but so be it - Lisa and I are cool with the idea of children. Marriage, on the other hand, is a very different issue, it's a bad idea for men. I've been there twice and it was very expensive for me. I've no idea to go there a third time - women have killed it for me. Kids aren't the problem - ex-wives are. That's why I won't marry again, but I'm happy to commit in other ways."
