Liam Payne’s ex, Sophia Smith, has finally broken her silence on the rumours that he’s dating Cheryl Fernandez-Versini.
Liam dated Sophia for around two years, with the couple breaking up last October. At the time, Liam blamed ‘being on tour’ for such a long time as the cause of their split.
And now, she’s spoken out about how she feels about his alleged new lady.
‘It’s SO weird’, the 22-year-old told Now. ‘I knew about them a little bit ago, but who thought it would actually come out?’
She then added that she didn’t feel upset about it, however, saying that she felt ‘okay’. ‘I’m all good’, she continued. Phew.
Of course, it’s not easy watching your ex date anyone knew, but we imagine when it’s reported to be Cheryl, it makes it all that much harder…
Could this be why Sophia seemed to have reacted in the most unexpected way when the news was first released, then?
In a Snapchat posted last month, Sophia and Eleanor Calder (Louis Tomlinson’s ex) were seen enjoying a girls’ night in with plenty of wine and, erm, Zayn Malik music.
Yep, they were only dancing to new tune Pillow Talk. Interesting choice – could this have been a teeny big at Liam and Louis?

Sophia also appeared to copy Cheryl with an Instagram post showing her lounging sexily in bed, shared just a few days after a similar shot from the X Factor judge…
As for Liam and Cheryl, well, neither have yet confirmed the relationship rumours, so we guess we’ll just have to wait and see…
