Lionel Richie breaks his silence on daughter Nicole Richie's DUI sentence and pregnancy.


DUI sentence and pregnancy. Poppa Lionel Richie is breaking his silence over the many issues surrounding his daughter Nicole Richie. In the first ever comment he made since the reality TV star was sentenced to four days in jail and publicly announced her pregnancy, the R&B and soul singer simply says that his 25-years-old daughter has "made some mistakes in her life," but that he raised her to take responsibility for her behavior.

"She has not blamed others for her problems and is growing up very quickly, albeit in the heat of the media spotlight," the 58-year-old man told Usmagazine.com. "My father taught me to stand straight and take whatever punishment or hardships were the result of my own actions, and I am proud that I was able to hand that philosophy down to my daughter."

Nicole, pleaded guilty to a DUI charge stemming from a Dec. 11th arrest in Burbank for driving her Mercedes SUV the wrong way on the Ventura (134) Freeway, was sentenced last week to four days behind bars and ordered to undergo drug and alcohol treatment.

Sheriff's officials confirmed Thursday August 2nd that Nicole has decided to serve her sentence at the same county jail in Lynwood that housed her BFF, Paris Hilton. She has until September 28th to begin serving her sentence.

Nicole has on Thursday August 2nd told ABC News' Diane Sawyer that she's almost four months pregnant with boyfriend, Good Charlotte singer Joel Madden's child.
