Inside Naomi Campbell’s unlikely fling with One Direction star Liam Payne before she had a baby at 50
SHE may be one of the world’s most famous supermodels, but Naomi Campbell is still very much a woman of mystery.
Yesterday she shocked the world when she revealed she had secretly become a mum at the age of 50 – sparking a pregnancy riddle, with her fans desperate to find out more.
But in recent years, Naomi Campbell has always kept her private life very underwraps – especially when it comes to men.
She has in fact been in a secret relationship with a US boyfriend for the past eighteen months.
Prior to that, her last known romance was with One Direction star Liam Payne – an unlikely fling that once again left her fans wanting to know more.
Here we take a look at how the pop star managed to woo the world’s most beautiful woman, 23 years his senior.
The surprising pair were were first linked over the New Year when they were in Ghana together to see in 2019.
They were pictured sitting next to each other over a dinner with friends, before partying until dawn at the beach bash.
At the time an insider said: “Liam and Naomi’s closeness raised eyebrows.
“They are such an unlikely pair but there is a real attraction between them.”
Shortly afterwards the rumour mill went into over drive as they flirted openly over Instagram.
Naomi complimented Liam, writing under a shirtless snap of him: “Beautiful soul.”
Liam replied: “Takes one to know one”, adding a kiss emoji.
Londoner Naomi then posted a photo of her own and Strip That Down singer Liam commented: “Perfection in a person . . . don’t give me those eyes.”
The pair were later spotted together at a Davido Adeleke concert.
A gig goer snapped Liam walking behind Naomi, wearing round shades, as they left London's O2 Arena.
However Naomi was keen not to be photographed with Liam during their four-month romance.
The Sun on Sunday revealed how they had been enjoying “mind-blowing sex” during dates in London and New York.
Pals said singer Liam, who has one son with his ex Cheryl Tweedy, “couldn’t believe his luck” that he was with Naomi.
He was said to be thrilled to be dating someone he had pictures of on his wall while growing up in Wolverhampton.
But pals of Liam said he could be "eaten alive" by Naomi — who they feared saw him as a plaything.
The singer was said to be "head over heels" for the British supermodel.
He raved to friends about amazing "liaisons" in New York and London during the secret fling.
Naomi introduced him to fashion giants such as Hugo Boss as he hoped to boost his modelling career.
However, things came to an end in April 2019, when Naomi cooled off- with pals claiming she was tired of him.
A source said: “Naomi has taken the decision to let things fizzle out. She’s just not into Liam any more and has cast him aside. Quite simply she got a bit bored.
“He was always the more keen, slightly needy one and, as far as she was concerned, they were never officially an item anyway. It’s always been very casual.”
The pair have never spoken publicly about the romance but during an appearance on Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen, Liam was quizzed about it during a game called Plead The Fifth.
“Liam, can you confirm or deny that you dated Naomi?” Andy asked.
Liam seemingly confirmed the romance as he replied: “I plead the fifth.”
