One Direction alum Liam Payne, 29, looked very much together with influencer Kate Cassidy, 24, on Thursday June 8 — just under a month after a report had the duo breaking up. In photos you can see below, the musical heartthrob rocked a black and white zoot suit in pin stripes while holding hands with Kate at Chiltern Firehouse in London after the Annabel 60th anniversary bash. Blonde bombshell Kate looked gorgeous in a sexy beige vest and matching mini skirt, paired with stilettos and a slim necklace. She also carried a smartphone and a chic handbag and accessorized with a tasteful pair of earrings.

Barely one month ago on May 10, Us Weekly reported that the handsome couple had split. “Liam and Kate have broken up,” a source told the outlet at the time. The U.S. Sun seemingly corroborated the report with additional details. “Liam and Kate sat down after he returned from LA and decided it wasn’t working out,” The Sun‘s insider reportedly said. “There was no big row or anything – it just ran its course and they both mutually decided to go their separate ways.”

The Sun also claimed she had moved out of the singer’s place in London. “Kate moved out of Liam’s home and flew back to the US earlier this week,” they continued. “Liam knows it’s the right decision, he’s been throwing himself into his music and the rest of the year he is jampacked with work. The next few weeks alone will see him fly to back to the States and to Europe to wrap up his new album. In truth trying to juggle his career and keep his relationship alive throughout the summer and into autumn was always going to be tricky – they both realised that. His first record was Liam finding his feet and working out his sound … but he’s found his lane and the new tracks are his best yet.”

Kate and Liam began dating about six months after his high-profile split from ex fiancée Maya Henry in May of 2022. Liam has been known to hang out with exes before — in June of 2022, he was spotted getting cozy with another ex-girlfriend, dancer Danielle Peazer, while leaving a party in London.
