Liam Payne and Cheryl Fernandez-Versini are totally smitten with each other, but Liam is reportedly still calling and texting his ex Sophia Smith! Uh, oh.
Liam Payne, 22, and Sophia Smith, 22, have been split up for months, but apparently, they still keep in touch! Liam’s current flame, Cheryl Fernandez-Versini, 32, is finding the whole situation “difficult” — read on to see how she feels about Liam and Sophia staying buddies!
“Sophia has been texting and calling Liam because they’re still friends,” an insider tells Closer magazine. “Liam’s also very close to a lot of girls from his school days as well as One Direction’s hairdresser, and Cheryl finds it difficult.” Well, we always knew Liam was a flirt, but maybe he should spend more time doting on his current girlfriend rather than past ones!
Another source tells Heat that Cheryl sometimes feels like she and Liam are on shaky ground: “It was so perfect for them before everyone found out. There was no pressure before — no judgements. They were able to go on holiday to the Maldives together without anyone knowing or commenting. Now, their every move is under scrutiny and Cheryl’s scared that the pressure could prove too much and end up splitting them up.” Oof, let’s hope that doesn’t happen!
Apart from Liam’s contact with Sophia, all is well in Liam and Cheryl world. He constantly gushes about Cheryl on social media, calling her his “favourite woman in the world”, and shared this adorable snap with his fans:
It’s never easy when an ex is still in the picture, but we’re sure that Liam and Cheryl will stay strong through this!
