LIAM Payne, 25, and Naomi Campbell, 48, have been spotted on a date just days after The Sun revealed their flirty Instagram messages.
The stars stepped up their romance and enjoyed a night out at London’s O2 Arena on Monday, where they watched Nigerian singer Davido perform.
The couple were swamped by fans inside the venue as they left their private VIP suite.
The excited bystanders shared videos online that show Liam with his arm on Naomi’s back as she dodges cameras and leads the way.
The supermodel stunned, dressed head-to-toe in denim and wearing her hair in tight curls.
A source told the Daily Star Online: “Liam and Naomi were keen to keep a low profile.
“They entered and exited the arena via the back door and were quickly whisked up to a VIP suite on Level 3.”
The sighting comes after former One Direction star Liam commented on the beauty’s Instagram post – calling her “perfection”.
He included a rose emoji in his message, as well as the blowing-a-kiss and eyes emojis.
Upon further digging, it transpired that Liam’s affections were reciprocated on one of his smouldering Instagram posts.
The father-of-one is shirtless and staring into a mirror in the sexy snap, with Naomi simply writing: “Beautiful soul” alongside a heart emoji.
The flirty social media exchanges was noticed by Liam’s fans, who took to Twitter to speculate he and Naomi are dating.
One fan wrote: “Naomi Campbell is literally the last person I ever expected Liam to have a thing with fhfdfdf I’m screaming.”
Another added: “I’m not ready for a Naomi Campbell and Liam Payne relationship, I’m really not.”
A third said: “Liam dating Naomi Campbell is the evidence we need to say we’re living in a simulation.”
