It seems like Liam Payne has a thing for women who are older than him. Rumor says the former One Direction bandmate is having a secret love affair with Naomi Campbell who happens to be 23 years his senior. What has birthed these rumors, you ask?

Well, these two were spotted together making their way out of London’s O2 Arena’s VIP Area after a Nigerian singer Davido’s concert. The 25-year-old singer and his rumored model girlfriend made sure that not many eyes caught them sneaking out from the back door.

However, not only the cameras but witnesses caught them too. A source who happened to spot them reported to Daily Star Online, “Liam and Naomi were keen to keep a low profile. They entered and exited the arena via the back door and were quickly whisked up to a VIP suite on Level 3.”

This news comes after fans saw flirty interactions between Naomi Campbell and the For You singer on Instagram. First, the 48-year-old model left a comment on Liam Payne’s shared Instagram picture, in which he can be seen shirtless, mid-January. “Beautiful soul,” wrote Naomi with a heart emoji to which Liam replied, “Takes one to know one” along with a kiss emoji.

Then, Liam returned the favor a few days later by leaving a comment on her Insta picture. Bear’s father wrote, “Perfection in a person.” “Don’t give me those eyes,” his comment continued. Again, the kiss emoji was there. Earlier this month, Naomi also shared a video of Liam dancing with a British-Nigerian model on their trip to Ghana.

The source that saw them on a date recently added, “Naomi was more than happy to pose for official pictures inside the venue but didn’t have a single one with Liam. After the show they left together in the back of a blacked-out green Range Rover and Liam was seen putting his arm around Naomi’s waist.”

Before this new relationship, Liam Payne had a short-lived fling with model Cairo Dwek. Last year, he and his long-time girlfriend, Cheryl, broke up in the summer months. Payne has a 22-month-old son with Cheryl named Bear. Whereas Naomi’s last relationship was with rapper Skepta who also happens to be younger than her. Naomi and Skepta had a 12-year difference between their ages.

It can be that Naomi and Liam are not dating and are merely friends. But we refuse to believe that because why else would they be trying to hide after attending the musical gig together?
