It was bad enough to feel solidly over the cusp of middle age when the teenage lads from One Direction broke up (or went on an indefinite hiatus, if you are a glass half full kind of Directioner). Then some of the boys started popping out babies and I felt down right Social Security recipient old. This morning I feel like the Cryptkeeper took a dump on my head with the news that Naomi Campbell and Liam Payne flirted. Yes, supermodel and professional phone thrower Naomi Campbell, age 48 and Liam Payne, 25 were flirting on Instagram so that 100% confirms that they are practically married already.
Naomi and Liam were caught engaging in this generation’s version of sharing soda pops after church courtship: posting emojis and commenting on each other’s Instagram selfies:
But this isn’t the only evidence of possible shagging between the two. Windsor Star says that Liam and Naomi also spent New Year’s together and have been liking each other’s comments on Instagram for a minute or two, which is the modern day version of holding hands:
Eagle-eyed fans also spotted that the pair has been liking each other’s Instagram posts since late December.
Liam also celebrated New Year in Ghana with Naomi, with the supermodel sharing a video at the time of the father-of-one learning traditional dances with actress Eku Edewor.
It’s safe to say that Liam has a type: older ladies that like to throw punches. His ex, wannabe one named singer “Cheryl” (nee Cheryl Ann Tweedy Cole Fernandez-Versini Inigo Montoya You Killed My Father Prepare To Die) is ten years older than Liam and was found guilty of punching a nightclub toilet attendant who was trying to stop Cheryl from grabbing a handful of lollipops (I get the need for a midnight lollipop, but aren’t they like 25 cents a piece? C’mon, Cheryl).
All I can say, is that if this is 2019’s antidote to the first boring couple alert of the year, I say bring it on. Bring on LIOMI, which sounds like the name of an ointment you’d use after getting hit in the head with a phone flung by Naomi.
