The pop superstar has been photographed with 17-year-old model Sofia Richie in recent days, and it seems she was invited to join Bieber on an overseas adventure after they were snapped together at California's Van Nuys Airport on Thursday.

Bieber is booked to play two shows in Japan this weekend.

The singer has been friends with Lionel's little girl for some time, but a source tells Us Weekly the young pair recently started casually dating.
