Liam Payne, 22, Dating 32-Year-Old Cheryl Fernandez-Versini — Report


Liam Payne is known for having super serious relationships with girls just about his age. But his romantic live has gone in another direction.

The 22-year-old One Direction hottie is dating an older woman: 32-year-old UK A-lister Cheryl Fernandez-Versini.

The boy bander confirmed the speculation in the sneakiest way ever — he changed his Instagram profile pic to a cuddly, shirtless photo with his new lady love.

The chemistry started between the new couple when 1D gave their final performance on X Factor in December 2015, before their hiatus. Cheryl is one of the English series’ most famous judges.

The beautiful brunette is also still technically hitched to her husband Jean-Bernard Fernandez-Versini, 35, whom she’s in the midst of divorcing.

The pair was only together for 19 months when the Brit TV personality decided to call it quits. 

The chart topping singer coincidentally ended things around the time she reconnected with Liam,  who broke up with his own girlfriend, Sophia Smith, in October 2015, after nearly three years together.

Happy Valentine's Day baby ...

Despite the soap opera quality of the relationship — and their decade age difference — friends told The Sun, “[it's] the real deal.”

Liam even apparently got a rose tattoo as a tribute to Cheryl, who has a gigantic group of roses inked on her entire butt.
