Newly Single Liam Payne Sets Sights On Leona Lewis
One Direction star Liam Payne may have only split up from his long-term girlfriend two weeks ago, but reports suggest the singer now has his sights set on wooing singing sensation Leona Lewis.
19 year-old Liam is said to have taken Leona out in London twice last week, despite his recent split from girlfriend of two years Danielle Peazer.
Whilst 27 year-old Leona began dating German dancer Dennis Jauch in 2010, the pair hasn’t been seen together for several months, indicating they have privately ended their relationship.
Speaking to The Mirror newspaper a source claims that after splitting from his girlfriend, Liam set his sights on asking Leona out: “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 lime-light and are really into each other.”
Liam has made it no secret that he has always had a crush on Leona, admitting in an interview last year that he thinks the singer is ‘beautiful’. According to a family member of Liam’s, former girlfriend Danielle was not happy with how open Liam was about his feelings for Leona, and was embarrassed about how he was acting like a young boy with a crush.
Despite Liam’s relationship with Danielle not working due to his jet-setting lifestyle and the spotlight the relationship put on Danielle, if he were to start dating Leona the situation wouldn’t be likely to be a problem. Leona has a busy work schedule herself, and understands the commitments and pressure that comes with being an international pop star.
When confronted over the rumours of Liam romancing Leona, her spokesperson declined to comment on the situation. Meanwhile Liam’s spokesperson has released the following statement: “We’re not currently commenting on Liam’s private life.”
