Liam Payne Girlfriends 2022: Who Is Liam Dating Now?

In 2010 16-year-old Liam Payne became an international superstar when his career took off as a member of the incredibly successful boy band One Direction. The Englander got his first taste of fame at just 14-years-old when he auditioned on the reality competition show The X Factor in 2008. Despite showing promise and wowing judges, Payne was cut and urged by judge Simon Cowell to come back. Payne took his advice and came back two years later to subsequently join a group of other talented singers during his time on the competition show, which eventually became known as the group One Direction.

The group impressed Cowell so much during their time on the show that they were signed to Simon Cowell’s Syco Entertainment in 2010. After the release of their first album,  Up All Night, in 2011, followed by their second album, Take Me Home, in 2012, the group’s star status quickly rose as did their fanbase. The group has since released five studio albums to date, headlined several tours and won several awards. Following the departure of former bandmate, Zayn Malik, Payne has since taken over the bulk of Malik’s vocals during live performances.

Payne was also credited as one of the principal songwriters in the group, credited for co-writing more than half of the songs on the band’s third and fourth album. Along with his work with One Direction, Payne has also had quite a successful career thus far as a solo artist, working with other artists like Juicy J, Pharrell Williams, Miguel and DJ Mustard.

Despite his busy schedule and his rise to fame as one of the most sought-after singers today, Payne, who has pretty much grown up in front of the world, has also had his fair share of romances, including a highly publicized relationship with singer and TV personality Cheryl Cole.

Let’s take a closer look at Liam Payne’s love life.

Danielle Peazer 2010-2013

Payne began dating Peazer, a British dancer in 2010. The couple reportedly began seeing one another after meeting on The X Factor and dated for two years until breaking up in September of 2012. The couple reconciled and reunited a few months later but eventually called it quits for good and split again in May 2013.

Sophie Smith 2013-2015

Payne’s next high profile romance came almost immediately after his split from Peazer when he began dating British beauty Sophie Smith in May of 2013. The couple’s relationship only lasted for two years before they split in October 2015.

Cheryl Cole 2015-2018
