Over the past few days, Justin Bieber has sparked rumors that model Sofia Richie is his new girlfriend — and Beliebers are totally freaking out.

After posting seven pictures to Instagram with his alleged new boo over the course of two days, Justin told his followers that if they didn’t stop hating on her in the comments, he’d make his account private. This ultimately caused a bit of backlash for the pop star, and even led to a mini-feud with his ex, Selena Gomez, in the comments.

But in case you’re still curious about the mysterious new woman in the Biebs’s life, here are just a few things you need to know.

1. She’s a model.

She began modeling in 2014, and was signed to L.A. Models and Select Model Management by the end of the year. Along with multiple high-end editorials and a couple fashion magazine covers, she was personally selected by Stella McCartney to attend the 2015 Met Ball as one of her guests, and Madonna chose her as the face of her clothing line, Material Girl, later that year.

2. She’s Nicole Richie’s half-sister.

She views her big sister as her fashion icon and even used to steal clothes from her closet when she was younger. She’s also appeared on Nicole’s VH1 show Candidly Nicole multiple times!

4. She hopes to follow in her father’s footsteps and start a music career.

In an interview with Nylon, she said, “I grew up watching my dad be a singer, so it’s something I’ve always been interested in. The past three years I’ve really been studying writing, and I take vocal lessons every day.” I think the world is ready for the most adorable father-daughter duet of all time.

5. Michael Jackson was her godfather.

She practically grew up with Paris Jackson, and says the two are very close. “When we were little kids, Paris and I would be hanging out here with both of our dads,” she told The Evening Standard, describing the King of Pop as “very soft-spoken” and “so sweet.”

6. She’s a huge Game of Thrones fan.

She once dyed her hair an icy-blonde because she was inspired by Daenerys.
