Just when we thought we had another member of One Direction roaming this world single… a woman goes off and sweeps him off his feet.
Yes, I am talking about Liam Payne ladies.
Just two weeks after splitting up with his girlfriend of two years, Danielle Peazer, the 19-year-old heartthrob has been linked with his long time crush, Leona Lewis.
I’ll give you a few seconds to recollect yourselves.
According to The Mirror, a source close to Payne’s family confessed that Liam has already managed to score not one but TWO dates with the 28-year-old ‘Bleeding Love’ singer. Looks like he is taking some advice from Harry Styles because Leona is about eight years older then Liam.
“He is really excited about how things are going with Leona. As soon as the chance came to ask her out he grabbed it – and they really enjoyed their dates together. Although they were in London they managed to stay out of the limelight and are really into each other.”
Reports claim that Liam developed a massive crush on Leona after watching season three of the X Factor, which she won.
But what did Danielle think about Liam’s crush on Leona?
The family source went on to say: ‘Liam has never made any secret of his feelings for Leona. It hardly went down well last year with Danielle when he practically admitted he had a crush on her.’
But according to sources it was Liam’s fame and rock star lifestyle that caused his relationship with Danielle to fall apart.
‘[Danielle] would have loved to have seen more of Liam, but his career had to come first. It’s sad they’ve had to part. But you could understand why a woman like Leona Lewis would be able to cope with Liam’s superstar status.’
