Yes, One Direction-er Liam Payne and X Factor UK judge, Cheryl Fernandez-Versini (formerly Cole) might be dating. The 22-year-old even changed his profile photo on Instagram to an image with Cheryl, 32…sounds like love is in the air. And it looks like the coupling is not new and may have started late last year.
The new couple actually met about 8 years ago in 2008 when Payne first appeared on The X Factor (before the creation of One Direction) and Cheryl was a judge and recently linked up after a performance on The X Factor. The duo were snapped by a fan while shopping in a store. Liam broke up with his longtime girlfriend back in October and Cheryl split with hubby!
