Liam Payne ‘Devastated’ After Sophia Smith Breakup

Liam Payne is simply crushed by his breakup with girlfriend Sophia Smith. The One Direction hunk may be back on the market but that thought doesn’t seem to be easing the pain of his separation from Sophia.

Liam Payne, 20, and now ex-girlfriend Sophia Smith, 20, have split. The couple had been dating for eight months and first met while attending St. Peter’s Collegiate School in Wolverhampton, England. A report says that Liam is simply “devastated” by the separation.

Although Liam is hurting, apparently he, realizes that things are better off this way because he and Sophia spent so much time apart. Currently, Liam is on tour (Where We Are) with One Direction, which kicked off last month.

“He’s devastated that it’s over but it was for the best,” a source told UsWeekly. “They were spending too much time apart and it’s only going to get worse this year — the band going on a super long tour, her getting busier with university,” the source explained.

“Too much long distance,” the source claims. “It was draining for the both of them and led to a lot of arguments. Liam was the one who chose to end it.”
