Liam Payne celebrated his 20th birthday this week and it looks like he had a right old night of it, as he took his girlfriend out clubbing in London.
The One Direction only went public with his former schoolmate Sophia Smith a few weeks ago, but it seems they’ve been inseparable ever since and she’s been spotted at his movie premieres, American concerts, shopping with Liam in LA and on set of their latest video shoot in East London.
Last night Payne was pictured arriving at Funky Buddha nightclub on Thursday with Sophia and he couldn’t have looked more happy with himself.
He’d spent a long day filming the official music video for the band’s new single – the title of which has not yet been confirmed – but he didn’t look exhausted or worn out, in fact he looked proper ready to party.
Dressed casually in a black snap back cap, skinny jeans, boots and a mesh t shirt, Liam looked like he was on top of the world, while Smith definitely opted for a more glamorous outfit. She dressed up in a bright yellow jumpsuit, with black heels and Liam couldn’t keep his hands off her.
He was caught in a number of compromising positions by photographers and in one picture he seems to be manhandling the brunette beauty against the side of a car, while in another photo he appears to be groping her boob.
The rest of Liam’s bandmates apparently gave his birthday celebrations a miss, though some clubbers did report on Twitter that the 1D hunk didn’t seem to be missing them and got properly drunk as he danced the night away with other pals.
Liam and Sophia hooked up earlier this summer and it seems he’s pretty serious about his new lady.
A source said: ‘Liam has really fallen for her. It’s getting very serious, very fast. She’s a sweet normal girl who likes Liam for who he is, not because he’s in the most famous boyband in the world.’
