Liam Payne had been plagued with rumours that he was dating model Naomi Campbell last year, following his split from Cheryl – the mother of his son Bear.

Liam Payne, who is currently dating model Maya Henry, previously had a short-lived romance with Naomi Campbell last year.

The pair were apparently keeping things 'fun' and out of the spotlight, during their time together, following the One Direction star's split from Cheryl.

The 'Stack It Up' singer's casual relationship with the 48-year-old supermodel began six months after he split from ex-girlfriend Cheryl – whom he welcomed son Bear with, in March 2017.

But how long were they dating? And why did they break-up? Let's take a look...

When did Liam and Naomi start dating?

The pop star and the iconic supermodel began dating in January 2019, and apparently spent Valentine’s Day together in New York at the 48-year-old's apartment.

However, according to the tabloids Naomi warned Liam, 26, not to get 'too clingy' as she 'doesn’t want a committed relationship at this stage'.

They were first rumoured to be getting close in December 2018, weeks before they were spotted attending a concert together at the O2, in London.

They have also been seen having flirty exchanges on each other’s Instagram profiles, with Liam writing on a selfie of Naomi: “Don’t give me those eyes.”

When & why did they split?

According to a report, Naomi called off the romance in April 2019 - after four months of dating - due to them 'living different lives'.

A source told a tabloid: "Liam and Naomi had a lot of fun together, they got on well and had a laugh. But it just wasn’t meant to be.

"They are going to stay friends – there are no hard feelings with either of them."

Who is Liam's current girlfriend, Maya Henry?

Liam has been dating 19-year-old US model Maya since August 2019.

The lovebirds were briefly linked to each other in 2018, but seemed to rekindle their romance and made it public when they were spotted out, holding hands with each other on a date night.

The couple have since been going strength to strength, with the 'Get Low' singer gushing about his bae on Instagram and in interviews.

When did Liam and Cheryl split?

Cheryl and Liam announced their split in July 2018, sharing a statement on social media which read: “We are sad to announce that we are going our separate ways. It’s been a tough decision for us to make.

"We still have so much love for each other as a family. Bear is our world and we ask that you respect his privacy as we navigate our way through this together.”

When was Liam and Cheryl’s son Bear born?

Cheryl gave birth to baby boy Bear on March 23 2017, after keeping fans guessing over her pregnancy until a matter of weeks before her due date when she announced it in a L'Oreal shoot.

The Girls Aloud singer announced their son’s arrival with an Instagram photo of Liam cradling their son.

She wrote in the caption: “We are all madly in love and overwhelmingly happy with our little arrival.”

Despite splitting 14 months later, the former couple have remained amicable and even spent Christmas together so they could both be with their baby boy.
