Richie embarrassed by dad

Lionel Richie and Nicole Richie

Nicole Richie would rather bump into an ex than her dad.

The fashionista is the adopted daughter of megastar Lionel Richie and his former wife Brenda Harvey.

While she is close to her father, the 32-year-old joked she doesn’t like to socialize with him.

“Nothing’s worse than running into your ex at a party… Until you run into your dad at a party……. in Miami (sic),” she wrote on Instagram.

The star attached a picture of herself with the 64-year-old, showing her holding a glass of champagne as she looks up at her father with a shocked expression.

Lionel doesn’t seem fazed as he also clutches a glass of bubbly and looks directly at the camera.

Nicole has left husband Joel Madden and kids Sparrow and Harlow at home to enjoy some social events.

It seems the Good Charlotte rocker is more than capable of keeping himself entertained while his wife is away.

“Nicole is away for the weekend so i’m giving away all of her sweat pants. tweet me if you want some….” he quipped on Twitter.

“Wolverine on Apple Tv is my idea of a good night. Here’s looking at you @RealHughJackman (sic).”

Despite the joking, Nicole and her family love to hang out and celebrate together.

This year she spent the Thanksgiving holiday with her parents, despite their separation in 1993.

Luckily they are still on good terms, meaning Nicole can even laugh at the situation.

“If these divorcees get drunk & hook up tonight, I’m gonna be P**SED. Happy Thanksgiving,” she posted on Twitter.
