Following their split Liam has been linked to supermodel Naomi Campbell, which reportedly left Cheryl ‘furious’ after she heard the news.
The two stars made separate appearances at WE Day on Wednesday, with Liam making another solo show at the Global Awards.
During her appearance at WE Day, Naomi cut an interview short and managed to dodge a question regarding Liam when quizzed on the red carpet, according to

An onlooker told the publication: ‘Naomi was having the time of her life. At the party she was getting quite close to Drake – they ended up dancing together.
‘She doesn’t want to be in a serious relationship and hasn’t been inviting Liam to events. She just doesn’t seem that fussed and likes her space.’
Liam and Naomi have done little to quash rumours of a relationship in recent weeks, with both parties regularly liking the other’s social media snaps.
In one image, the former One Direction star looked typically dapper as he hit the red carpet at the BRIT Awards at London’s O2 last month.
