This is Lionel Brockman Richie Jr., an American singer, songwriter, record producer, and television judge who was born on June 20, 1949. After gaining notoriety in the 1970s as a co-lead vocalist and songwriter for the funk band the Commodores, with whom he worked on the hit singles “Easy,”
“Sail On,” “Three Times a Lady,” and “Still,” he eventually left the group. His song “Lady,” recorded by Kenny Rogers in 1980, was the top song in the United States on the Billboard Hot 100 chart. The next year, he co-wrote and produced the megahit “Endless Love,” a duet he recorded with Diana Ross.
It is still one of the 20 best-selling singles of all time. The album Lionel Richie, released in 1982, marked the beginning of his solo career and went on to sell more than four million copies and produce the hit singles “You Are,” “My Love,” and “Truly.”
Can’t Slow Down (1983) is one of the best-selling albums of all time, having topped the US Billboard 200 chart and sold over 20 million copies around the world.
It also featured the number-one singles “All Night Long (All Night)” and “Hello.” Then, in 1985, he and Michael Jackson collaborated on the mega-hit charity record “We Are the World,” which has sold over 20 million copies worldwide.
From his third studio album, 1986’s Dancing on the Ceiling, came the top-charting single “Say You, Say Me” (from the movie White Nights) and the number-two hit “Dancing on the Ceiling.” After a hiatus from recording from 1986 to 1996, Richie returned with seven studio albums. Starting with the show’s sixteenth season, he will be a judge on the popular singing competition American Idol.

His remark that Riche‘s appearance was consistent with “3rd-degree burns” was repeated. Riche’s visage was also the subject of a remark from Dan Katz of the Pardon My Take podcast. He claimed that the singer’s extensive plastic surgery rendered him incapable of displaying genuine emotion.
Although she has never spoken publicly about having surgery, in 2006, the Guardian claimed that a surgeon had been imprisoned due to misconduct. In the article, Richie was identified as one of his clients. However, unless the singer herself confirms the report, it remains nothing more than that.
Treatments for Other Operations Lionel Richie Has Undergone
Richie has had previous surgery on his knees and hips, but he has kept quiet about having any treatment done on his face.
The judge on American Idol revealed that his knee and hip problems were caused by his years of performing, which included dancing and leaping. He had spent many years of his life prancing around on stage in platform boots, and when his knees hurt, he had no idea how to stop.
