Liam Payne Confirms (& Defends) New Girlfriend, Sophia Smith

by: on | in Celebrities | 7 Comments

WENNZayn Malik's not the only One Direction guy with relationship news. Liam Payne has a girlfriend! But some Directioners haven't been handling it so well…

In an interview with Yahoo!'s omg!, the boy-bander confirmed that he's dating his old school friend, Sophia Smith. When prompted with the question of whether or not he and his new squeeze were public knowledge, he responded, "Yes, well it is now! It's new, she's sitting right over there [POINTS HER OUT IN THE CROWD]. It's not been long."

And if you need any further confirmation, they strolled hand-in-hand at the world premiere of One Direction: This Is Us.

However, similarly to some of the reactions after Zayn and Perrie's announcement and Liam's puppy, Loki, fans attacked Sophia on the Internet. Fortunately, Liam was quick to defend his new girlfriend, thereby slowing down the Twitter threats:

He continues, "…There is that old saying tho if you ain't got s*** nice to say then f*** you"

This is Liam's first publicized relationship since splitting with longtime on-again/off-again girlfriend Danielle Peazer. Many Directioners learned to support Payzer. Do you think you'll be able to ship Siam too? Spill in the comments!
