Liam Payne didn’t just shock the world with his hot new romance with Cheryl Fernandez-Versini, he also has ex-girlfriend Sophia Smith reeling. His former love of two years thinks the new pair make an odd couple and is labeling their relationship ‘weird.’
Sophia Smith, 22, has some choice thoughts on former boyfriend Liam Payne, 22, and British X-Factor judge Cheryl Fernandez-Versini‘s sudden love affair. The fashion business student thinks the One Direction singer falling for the twice married 32-year-old TV personality is beyond bizarre, and never thought he’d take the romance public like he has. Read on for more about what Liam’s ex thinks about his current love life.
“It’s SO weird. I knew about them a little bit ago, but who thought it would actually come out?” Sophia tells Now magazine. This romance has been going on longer than we thought, and if Sophia’s reaction is any indication, Liam and Cheryl intended to keep things on the down low and not make headlines with their relationship. Too late now, as Liam is professing his feelings for his new lady right and left on his Instagram, even calling her his “favorite woman in the world.” Sounds like true love to us!
So how is Sophia taking the news that her sweetie has so totally moved on? “I’m okay. I’m all good,” she says even though it must be hard to see her ex so happy with a new woman. Liam and Sofia dated from 2013 — 2015, but had known each other since their school days. They called it quits in Oct. 2015, which at the time the handsome singer said he was “absolutely devastated” over the breakup. Get a Liam Payne 93 pullover sweater by clicking here.
