FANS have already dubbed them ‘Laomi’ as speculation grows that Liam Payne is dating Naomi Campbell, 23 years his senior.
According to reports at the weekend, the One Direction star, 25, ‘can’t believe his luck’ and has been raving to pals about the supermodel, 48.
‘Liam thinks she’s amazing and beautiful, and has said their intimate time together has been mind-blowing,’ a source told The Sun On Sunday. Another source said: ‘He’s mad keen on her. He seems head over heels.’
The pair (pictured) have apparently been secretly dating for two months. Naomi is said to have helped boost his modelling career by introducing him to some of her contacts in the fashion world. The pair were spotted together at a Davido concert in London last week and are reportedly about to go public with their relationship.
Last summer Liam split from 35-year-old singer Cheryl, currently a judge in The Greatest Dancer. They have a son, Bear, who will be two next month.
Rumours of his romance with Naomi surfaced at New Year when they both turned up at a beach party in Ghana. Two weeks ago they were flirting on Instagram, with Naomi commenting on a picture of a shirtless Liam: ‘Beautiful soul.’
He replied: ‘Takes one to know one,’ adding a kiss emoji.
‘That wasn’t him trying to woo her,’ an insider told The Sun On Sunday. ‘That was him telling his girlfriend how he felt about her.’
But pals fear Liam could be ‘eaten alive’ by Naomi. A source said: ‘People are worried Liam may end up heartbroken. She could be seeing him as a plaything before moving on.’
