Leona Lewis: 'I haven't confirmed or denied if I'm dating Liam Payne'
The interviewer opens up his article in The Sun by stating:
“The east London girl has started dating One Direction’s Liam Payne”
Which isn’t a very ambiguous statement.
Later in their chat, the ‘Trouble’ hitmaker insisted that she wasn’t going to open up about the true nature of her relationship with the handsome singer, saying:
“Well, I… I’ve always been very private and I don’t talk about my relationships and things like that. I’ve learnt from the past.”
She clearly doesn’t deny the rumors, which she would right if she wasn’t dating him? Unless she’s just using the publicity to stay in the public eye and sell more copies of her new record….which surely someone as nice as Lewis just wouldn’t do…..would she?
Leona went on to describe 1D’s daddy bear as ‘super sweet’ admitting:
“Yeah, we are friends, he’s so lovely. He’s super, super sweet and we really get on with each other.”
She also told The Mirror:
“[Liam] is a really sweet, lovely guy. I’m a fan of One Direction. We have been friends for a year-and-a-half.
“I know you have to ask [if we're dating]. I’ve learned from having relationships before that have been speculated about, it’s best not to talk about it. I think that’s important.
“Usually the other person doesn’t get a say, so it’s really one-sided and unfair.”
She’s been receiving a LOT of attention from Directioners too and ever since the rumours started circuating last week, the ‘Collide’ crooner has been inundated with questions and comments from Liam’s fans.
However, they shouldn’t expect an answer any time too soon, as she insisted:
“I’ve had a lot of messages asking me questions but I refuse to talk about it. I’ve never been like that and I never will be.”
Leona is currently on the promo trail, in advance of the release of her third album, Glassheart, which is scheduled for release later this year. It was preceded by the single “Collide”, which became her seventh top-five hit in the UK and ‘Trouble’ which was released on the 5th of this month.
Do you think there could be a chance that Liam and Leona are in the middle of a fauxmance, designed just to help them shift more records, or could Payne really be dating again, so soon after his split from Danielle Peazer?
