Liam Payne, Naomi Campbell

Liam Payne and supermodel Naomi Campbell are apparently a romantic item. Liam, 25, and Naomi, 48, sparked rumors of a May-December romance after exchanging a series of flirty messages on Instagram, according to

Commenting on a steamy black-and-white photo of the former One Direction star, the 48-year-old supermodel wrote: "Beautiful Soul"

Liam quickly replied: "Takes one to know one," with a kissy face emoji.

After Naomi shared a photo showing off her afro wig as she prepared for the Louis Vuitton show during Paris Fashion Week, the "Strip That Down" singer wrote: "Perfection in a person... don't give me those eyes."

Sharp-eyed Instagram followers also noticed the couple liking each other's Instagram posts since late December.

Liam and Naomi, who are both British, celebrated New Year in Ghana, with the supermodel sharing a video of the father-of-one learning traditional dances with actress Eku Edewor.

Naomi has a long history of failed relationships. She reportedly previously dated Quincy Jones, Prince Albert of Monaco, Mike Tyson and R&B crooner Usher, and was most recently linked to British grime star Skepta.

Naomi Campbell and Skepta

Naomi and Skepta posed half naked on the cover of British GQ last year, prompting rumors that they were dating. It was later reported that they broke up, most likely due to the 12-year difference in their ages.

Liam split from Cheryl, the mother of his one-year-old son Bear, in July after more than two years together.

  • NYTimes#1Bestseller


  • Chaseboogie The Prince

  • We Can Do This

  • hottlanta

  • Skin Deep Beauty

  • ClaireHuxtable

    I guess somebody is always somebody's leftovers.

  • Bashi22

    Naomi Campbell I would love for you to have a baby girl that looks like you.

  • Chicagowise

    I know a tranny who looks just like Naomi!


    I can't stand this broad.. I don't even think she's that pretty.

  • hi-liter

    Rob Kardashian has snatched up another single mother.....Alexis Sky.

  • interestingconcept1

    Or my auntie, over twenty years still going strong. I guess you never know.

  • Coffee1st

    Living the single life is a God given right. But it seems, after a while, that some of these people are literally chasing something...trying to grasp something, that they just can't seem to obtain.

  • Y’all Jealous Cuz I’m Prudy

    Unless you both are each other's first, that usually the case.

  • SandraRose

    It's too late. She's 48 and high risk. Even fertility clinics won't accept donated eggs over 34 years old.

  • hottlanta

    Please people need 2 stop with the ageism mess. She was with old man lke that treated her like shit. Got with a younger man that treats her like a queen. U c how b smith age appropiate husband is treating her when she needs him the most. What is his excuse since people cant use the younger man line as validation that women need 2 stay in their age lane 2 b treated properly

  • hottlanta

    U can be with a man your same age 2 b age appropiate n his azz
    will still b trying 2 find someone younger than u. Glad 2c women like tina who woke up n realized that women do have age options n luv thé way that she wanted 2luv. Women r mad at tina bcas she didnt ask for their permission 2 luv a younger man.

  • Bashi22

    Sandra what if she already frozen her eggs from time? . Are they still old? .

  • Parent

    I don't know about this one either.

    Dear Naomi, that GQ cover is not flattering at all.

  • hottlanta

    She that the reason why people like Steve harvey have multiple marriages bcas they r trying 2 grasp something that they just cant seem 2 obtain.

  • DroneRivers

    What is the appeal in dating someone so much older/younger than you? What y'all got in common?

    Edit: Naomi looks amazing at 48.

  • Kimberly King

    Their age gap doesn't make me feel bad for being 30 years old fooling around with a 20 year old. lol These young men have been doing it for me lately.

  • KcoolMuziq

    Steve(whom I experienced when he use to host the now defunct BET Gospel Celebration for a few years) says he has finally found the love of his life with Majorie. So he didn't require her to sign a prenup.

  • den

    Changed her wig ,talking abt it's her hair...Please

  • hottlanta

    So he was just practicing with the first 2 wives n lied when he told them he loved them as well. I dont see women saying 2 or about him he cant keep a woman or he is cray cray or he has issues. Woman dont allow women the luxury 2 move around like that. Glad Naomi aint listening 2 the naysayers n do her. I wonder how many wives feel like they r practice wives until their husband fine the person he truly loves.

  • hottlanta

    Usher got issues with thé fire department right about now.

  • KcoolMuziq

    "Woman don't allow women the luxury 2 move around like that."

    Well U right about that because Steve's current wife Marjorie was married twice before Steve also. Both were drug dealers and went to jail that ended both marriages. She's HEAVILY criticized for being a "kept" woman.

  • KcoolMuziq

    Janet had a healthy baby at 50....

  • Pamela

    The main difference between the two being Ms Turner never played around unlike Ms Campbell here who seems to bounce from one suitor to the next with lightning speed. Love them both.

  • Peppermint Patty

    Doesnt matter....Sandra believes noone over 25 need to have kids check out the medical minutes....thought u knew

  • Coffee1st

    I suppose many ppl are for many reasons.
    But why would i mention married ppl when the post is about a single woman who's been in more relationships than i care to mention.
    I just chose to stay within context.
    But if you want, you can make a whole new comment about how you feel about ppl who's been in multiple marriages. There's a lot of flexibility here in the Garden and knowing you, you'll make some pretty good points.

  • Coffee1st

    Just like?? ?
    So you mean to tell me, I could get this wig laid, have my face beat to the gawds, throw on my waist trainer and grab my sharpest outfit out the closet and that joker would still turn more heads than i could ever hope to?????????
    Yeah....that's exactly what your telling me.?

  • Coffee1st

    I was in awe off her beauty when she first came out. For me, her behaviors caused her looks to diminish.
    I can't deal with ugly souls.


    Really? I never saw it.. she aight.. imo

  • Roderick2011

    So Naomi is putting that cougar kitty kat on him.

    Go ahead, Ms. Campbell.

  • Logan Roberts

    Naomi this hairstyle ages you, no bueno.

  • hottlanta

    If u r single u supposed 2 b in n out of relationships n l dont c why folks especially women vot a problem with that yet we chase men who do the same thing.

  • Bashi22

    I know Sandra she's very adamant about childbearing for women above 35.

  • Lady_Elle

    This is purely a S*XUAL relationship!
    This YOUNG man could care less about anything else Naomi has to say!

  • Coffee1st

    It was Tyra that i never got all the fuss about...she was a Naomi knock off to me.


    They're both "Alright". They both probably look great in person tho.

  • Coffee1st

    Guess thats something i just won't understand.
    Like women who like butch women...why don't they just get a man?
    Likewise, single but constantly in/out relationships.... why don't they switch the goal to marriage?
    Know a chic who's been single since '87. And she's been just that - single. Chose one special friend for special occasions & "tune ups". That's an arrangement, not a relationship. Now that makes sense to me.

  • hottlanta

    Some married people have the same kind of arrangement with each other. I been single since birth so l got your friend beat n l can say it loud l am single n proud.

  • Blak

    Naomi is a boss and if she is dating beneath her it's because they are carrying her purse and giving her sex when she feels like it and that's it.

  • Sushi

    Pure, sexual... I'm 44, and mine is 27.... Nothing else I need from him....

  • Dowoop

    She's 48, naming 5 ppl she dated is a drop in the bucket (yes I'm sure she's dated alot more). Ppl pbly hit that number by the time they are 20.

  • jujumanji

    Lies they tell.

  • Chicagowise

    LMAO! I'm sorry, Ms. Thing is fierce, but he's delusional. He actually thinks he's a woman.

  • Coffee1st

    Lol... I know he is if he's a dead ringer for Ms. Naomi!!!

  • Peppermint Patty

    And yet it happens-successfully-everyday....

  • Bashi22

    True she just don't like it

  • interestingconcept1

    That story makes me weeps. I don't care how fragile my mind becomes it is not ok for my husband to bring a woman into our home.

  • MistaO

    Just throwing it out there because it seems no one ever told most females today...No man wants a woman who done had a lot of d icks up inside them. Just so you know...that's why most females today will neva see a wedding day...

  • hottlanta

    That is why a lot of women dont give a dayum bout a wedding. Aint nobody kissing nobody azz for a ring. What about the men who r whores n never been married who been screwing anything with a hole. Women have gotten smart. Aint nobody rushing 2 marry their azzes either .If men dont like whores they need 2 stop creating them

  • hottlanta

    Betta say it.

  • Miss Foxx

    He not even all that cute

  • Sassie

    Does Naomi think she's white? So she's one of those black folks that only dates white folks? And she's not DATING anyone who is that young. What she is doing is simply getting her some young peen before that young ass boy moves on to a younger girl closer to his age.
