Sorry, what?

Some celebrity pairings just come out of nowhere, like, right out of left field. But Liam Payne, 25, and Naomi Campbell, 48?!?! Just HOW. The One Direction singer publicly flirted with the legendary supermodel on Instagram and no-one could quite believe what they were seeing.

On Friday, Naomi posted a jaw-dropping selfie on her Instagram page just before Louis Vuitton's Paris Fashion Week show. So Liam took the opportunity to shoot his shot, leaving an extremely flirty message beneath her photo.

"Perfection in a person… don't give me those eyes," he wrote, adding a sequence of suggestive emojis. But after a little snooping, it was clear this wasn't the first time that Liam and Naomi had exchanged words on the 'gram.

Just a few days before, Liam posted a photo of himself smouldering into a mirror. Naomi commented beneath it, "Beautiful Soul," and Liam replied, "Takes one to know one." Is it getting a little steamy in here, or…


People couldn't actually believe it, like, Naomi AND Liam? Are they actually a thing now?

So, after the initial WTF moment, both are actually free agents – and we're kind of here for it. Naomi is thought to be single after reportedly splitting from rapper Skepta last year. Meanwhile Liam parted ways with the mother of his son Cheryl in July 2018.
