One Direction’s Liam Payne is dating Leona Lewis, according to reports. Liam split with his girlfriend of two years, model Danielle Peazer, earlier this week – while Leona has recently single after breaking up with her boyfriend Dennis Jaunch.
A source has told The Sunday Mirror: “Liam 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.”
Meanwhile, a ‘family friend’ told the paper: “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. Then earlier this summer Leona told how she enjoyed giving Liam advice about his career. It was all harmless fun at the time. But now Liam seems to have moved on to Leona. He is not at all bothered about the eight-year age gap.”
Liam once described Leona as “beautiful” in a radio interview, saying: “I have liked her ever since she did the X Factor all of those years ago.”
But Leona once said: “He’s sweet. But they’re, like, two.”
