She’s not gonna kiss and tell, but we can still suspect! Model Naomi Campbell has been quiet about the rumors that she and former One Direction star Liam Payne are dating — until she appeared on the Jonathan Ross Show on March 8. The hilarious host had no problem posing the hard question and the 48-year-old opened up … but only a bit.
“There’s been a lot of headlines recently, Naomi, connecting you to Mr. Liam Payne, formerly of One Direction,” the English TV host said. “Any truth to these rumors?”
The legendary beauty played it both stoic and coy at the same time, smirking as she responded. “I never discuss my personal life,” she said.
Ever the iconic queen with a comeback, she hit back with the same answer when questioned about a past rumored fling with rapper Drake. “I never discuss my personal life,” she repeated with a smile.
“I mean, it’s crazy,” she continued. “It’s like … one day it’s one person, the next day it’s another. Who’s tomorrow?”
The 1D crooner and his much older flame have been sparking rumors since they started leaving pretty flirty comments on each other’s Instagram posts, as well as appearing in each other’s IG stories. An insider revealed to Life & Style exclusively that Liam was falling for the model back in February.
“Liam doesn’t care that Naomi’s old enough to be his mom, he loves having a gorgeous supermodel on his arm,” an insider revealed. “Naomi is young at heart and she and Liam have the best time together. She’s really into him!”
He’s not exactly a stranger to dating out of his age bracket, though. Liam split from his ex-girlfriend, Cheryl Cole, back in July 2018 after over two years together. The couple also shares a 22-month-old son, Bear.
“Those close to Liam approve of Naomi, but are warning him to take things slow to avoid any heartbreak,” the source confessed. “The problem is when Liam falls for a woman, he falls hard!”
It seems like Naomi might be feeling the same, so we’re excited to keep tabs on this cute celeb couple.
