Singer Liam Payne and Naomi Campbell have had their first bust-up — she wanted to avoid him at tonight’s Bafta awards and he wasn’t happy about it.
Liam, 25, also recently missed a New York party amid claims Naomi, 48, does not want to be seen in public with the One Direction star. We can reveal Liam’s ex Cheryl Tweedy is devastated over their relationship – and is stunned he is seeing someone like Naomi. Sources said the supermodel wants to avoid the “drama” of being seen out with Liam. One said: “Naomi and Liam argued about the Baftas and she bluntly told him they were not going together. She suggested he go in through a rear door to avoid any fuss. She wants to avoid it all becoming a circus and drama around her and Liam and doesn’t want to detract from the event.Naomi also encouraged Liam not to attend the Equinox Hotels party in New York during the week for the same reason. She effectively barred him and went to the event with people including Kate Moss. But Naomi’s friends are saying, ‘Why is she happy to stay in and eat takeaways with Liam but not go out in public with him?’ Maybe she is trying to protect him, but there is also maybe a bit of embarrassment there too due to the age and Liam being a bit of a step down from some of the mega-rich men she has dated. It is a different level of wealth.”Photo Credit: Getty
