Sofia Richie, who had been enjoying the sunshine in St. Barts, where she had traveled with her boyfriend and some friends, returned to California to a nasty surprise.
Wearing an orange and white striped bikini and a green hat to shield her eyes from the glorious Caribbean sunshine, 22-year-old Sofia Richie posed for a variety of photographs taken by one of her friends on the beach.
The daughter of Lionel Richie and Diane Alexander stunned as she walked barefoot along the sand and showed off her tanned and toned figure.
She later shared a string of images to her Instagram account, including a photo of herself standing in front of the ocean.
Other pictures that surfaced online included a collection of sweet baked goods and a row of palm trees in front of a pink sunset sky.
Sofia Richie split from Keeping Up With the Kardashians regular Scott Disick, 37, last year after the pair dated for three years.
However, Sofia Richie has shown she has clearly moved on, as she shared a happy photo on Sunday with her new boyfriend, Elliot Grainge, who was first seen on her social media pages last month.
Holding her arms up in the air and making a “peace” sign with both hands, Sofia wore the same outfit from her beach photos and smiled widely as she sat in the passenger seat of a Mini Cooper next to Elliot Grainge, 27, who was driving.
He smiled alongside her and appeared to have one hand resting on her leg in the snap, which Sofia captioned, “dreamy,” with a love heart eyes emoji.
Late this week, Sofia Richie flew back to California and appeared in leaked photos eager to work out.
According to reliable sources who spoke to E! News, when Sofia Richie stepped into her pilate session, she discovered that Scott Disick‘s current girlfriend, Amelia Hamlin, was already working out.
An eyewitness told E! News that Sofia did not want the hassle, she rapidly returned to her car and drove away.
The person revealed: “It was a very awkward situation for Sofia, and she didn’t know Amelia was also going to be taking a class at the same time. She just wanted to avoid the situation all together, so that’s why she left.”
Her ex-boyfriend was recently seen during the final season of the reality TV show, speaking to the mother of his three children, Kourtney Kardashian, about his past relationship with Sofia.
Scott Disick has said that Sofia had given him a choice between her and his ex-partner, Kourtney, whom Scott said came “as a package” with his children.
