Sofia Richie Rings in 22nd Birthday With Kylie Jenner’s BFFs Following Scott Disick Split
Though Sofia Richie turns 22 years old on Aug. 24, she celebrated her birthday a little early this year. The model rang in her special day over the weekend by celebrating with family and friends, including those who are also part of Kylie Jenner‘s inner circle.
From enjoying an outdoor celebration to partying aboard a plane, Richie appeared to have had one stylish and carefree birthday, despite recently breaking up with her boyfriend of three years, Scott Disick.
Sofia Richie spent her birthday weekend surrounded by loved ones
Richie may have just broken up with Disick, but she didn’t let that stop her from enjoying her 22nd birthday.
The model spent this past weekend with friends and family as she rang in her special day in style. Richie’s birthday festivities started with her enjoying a lavish, outdoor dinner with sister Nicole Richie, their dad Lionel Richie, as well as other family members and friends.
Richie even shared a photo of herself and Nicole posing together on Instagram along with the caption, “22 festivities.”
She also shared a slideshow that gave her 6.4 million Instagram followers a better look at the birthday “festivities,” which included beautiful outdoor scenery, glamorous dinner table decor, and her famous father singing during the occasion.
Kylie Jenner surprisingly wasn’t part of the birthday celebration
As a follow-up to her birthday dinner, Richie hopped on a plane to an undisclosed location with her brother, Miles, their mother, Diane Alexander, and her close gal pals.
“22 feels good,” Richie captioned an Instagram post of her and her crew posing for a celebratory shot before they stepped onto the private jet.
Those tagged in the post were Anastasia Karanikolaou (aka Stassie Baby), Victoria Villarroel, photographer Amber Asaly — who are also Kylie Jenner’s best friends — Frankie’s Bikini founder Francesca Aiello and a few others.
For the adventure, the group donned matching custom-made outfits with “Sofia turns 22” written on the tops and bottoms in baby blue, which Richie revealed was Karanikolaou’s doing.
While aboard the plane, Richie commemorated the fun outing by sharing several photos and videos of herself and her birthday crew dancing, singing, and drinking.
Though it appeared Richie had a blast partying it up with all of those who are part of her inner circle, there was one person notably missing from the birthday festivities: Kylie.
Even though Richie and Jenner are BFFs, it’s unknown why the makeup mogul didn’t join in on the model’s birthday celebration or if she will participate in any party plans later this week.
Sofia Richie’s birthday celebration comes a few days after she and Scott Disick’s split
Another person notably absent from the festivities was Richie’s ex-boyfriend, Scott Disick, whom she recently split from.
On Aug. 19, sources confirmed that Richie and Disick had “broken up for good,” following a brief reconciliation in July.
“They have been off and on for two months,” an insider told E! News. “Sofia really pushed to make things work between them after they initially broke up, but Scott officially called it off recently and they are no longer speaking.”
The source claimed the pair’s 15-year age difference played a role in their breakup, noting that their lifestyles no longer aligned.
“Friends attributed their 15-year age difference becoming an issue,” the insider added. “He’s in a very much different place in his life, really focused on a more quiet lifestyle, his kids and his investment businesses. And Sofia, at 21 years, really still trying to figure what she wants to do which drove them apart over time.”
But despite recently calling it quits from the reality star, it appears Richie is doing just fine post-breakup as she was all smiles ringing in her special day with friends and family.
