Leona Lewis Calls Liam Payne “Handsome And Sweet”
There’s been speculation for weeks about whether or not singer Leona Lewis and One Direction star Liam Payne are an item – and now, Leona has added fuel to the fire by calling Liam “handsome and sweet”!
The ‘Bleeding Love’ singer told The Mirror,
“Liam is very handsome and very sweet... but he is young.
“He’s got his head screwed on and has good values and morals,” she continued.
And although the pair’s friendship has only come under scrutiny in recent weeks following Liam’s split from longtime girlfriend Danielle Peazer, Leona insists they’ve known each other a long time.
“We’ve known each other for a good couple of years. I met him through our label and management plus we would bump into each other at shows,” she said.
At 27 years of age, Leona is eight years older than 19-year-old Liam - but the singer doesn’t have any worries about dating a younger man, so long as he’s mature enough for her!
“Dating someone younger ¬depends on their maturity and it depends on the person,” Leona revealed.
“Guys date girls who are younger than them but I feel that girls are normally more ¬mature. Maturity is the main thing for me.
“If you are going to go young you have to find the right person.”
But don’t get too worked up just yet Directioners!
Although Liam recently told BBC Radio One host Gemma Cairney, “I do have a crush on Leona, she's hot!” the star was quick to make his relationship status very clear.
“I'd like to highlight the fact I'm single. I am single!” he dished.
