Liam Payne has moved on from his split with Cheryl Cole in just six weeks, and is now going out with millionaire heiress and Instagram star, Maya Henry.
The former One Direction singer and the socialite, who is only 18 years old, were seen out on a romantic date night at the Bulgari hotel in London. According to The Sun, they checked out within hours of each other. Payne was also seen attending the Dolce & Gabbana Gala Dinner in Lake Como with Henry last month. Henry and Payne actually go back much further than their current romance; they were pictured together during a One Direction meet and greet when Henry was only 15 years old.
A source told The Sun, “Liam and Maya get on well, and she’s a stunning girl. They have kissed a couple of time, but he is in no rush to date again and certainly isn’t ready for a serious relationship. Liam is simply focusing on work at the moment, and above all else obviously his main priority is Bear.”
Henry is an heiress to her father’s multi-million pound fortune which he amassed by running his own personal injury firm.
Since Payne’s split with 35 year old Cheryl Cole, the singer has also been linked to 20 year old Cairo Dwek. The two met during Payne’s trip to the French Riveria according to The Mirror, and they partied in the same nightclub after meeting at a restaurant in Cannes. Payne has since then been avidly liking her posts on Instagram.
Payne dated Cole for two and a half years prior to his recent flirtations, and the two have a son together as well. They announced their split on social media writing, “We are sad to announce that we are going our separate ways. It’s been a tough decision for us to make. We still have so much love for each other as a family. Bear is our world and we ask that you respect his privacy as we navigate our way through this together.”
Since the split, Payne has moved out of the mansion he shared with Cole in Surrey.
