One Direction star Liam Payne is reportedly dating international singing star Leona Lewis.

He may have only just called off his romance with long-term girlfriend Danielle Peazer, but if reports are to be believed the One Direction star has already moved on and is now dating Leona Lewis.

A source tells The Mirror: “[Liam] is really excited about how things are going with Leona.

"As soon as the chance came to ask her out he grabbed it - and they really enjoyed their dates together.

"Although they were in London they managed to stay out of the limelight and are really into each other."

One of Payne's family members told the newspaper: "Liam has never made any secret of his feelings for Leona. It hardly went down well last year with Danielle when he practically admitted he had a crush on her.

"Then earlier this summer Leona told how she enjoyed giving Liam advice about his career. It was all harmless fun at the time. But now Liam seems to have moved on to Leona.

"He is not at all bothered about the eight-year age gap."
