Liam Payne Grows A Beard While Girlfriend Sophia Smith's Supposed Nude Photos Leak

A bearded Liam Payne was spotted at the Funky Buddha Nightclub with his girlfriend Sophia Smith. The One Direction band member was looking a little scruffier than usual, but it seems like Sophia is totally cool with Liam's new beard.

SugarScape caught Payne at the Mayfair hotspot in London with Smith, where photographers caught several pics of of the couple. The two were seen having fun with a large group of friends. Liam and Sophia were also seen pointing at the cameras and laughing at random things.

Payne has a lot to smile about at the moment. According to a recent report on Unreality TV, the One Direction star recently bought a £5 million mansion, and he also dropped a staggering £400,000 on a home for his parents.

Liam isn't the only one who purchased a home for his family. Zayn Mailk also purchased a home for his family last June, according to a recent report on the Inquisitr.

Money obviously isn't a concern for the famous One Direction boy bander. Payne reportedly spent a lot of money on Smith at the Funky Buddha as well.


Liam was spotted looking unusually unkempt at the exclusive hotspot. His hair was longer than usual and he had more ungroomed facial hair than his fans are accustomed to seeing.

Meanwhile, Payne was the star of the headlines when a rumor on Twitter swirled that naked photos of Smith were circulating around the internet. This rumor freaked out One Directioners, or One Direction fans, all over the internet. Payne's loyal fans knew that he would be furious if his girlfriend's photos have leaked. However, it turns out that the sexy photos were obviously fake.

The very suggestive photos of Sophia were really that of an imposter; someone made a poor attempt at starting a rumor about Liam's girlfriend. There are some hardcore One Direction fans that are known to attack the guys' girlfriends and spread vicious rumors about them.

Only dedicated One Direction fans know that Liam and Sophia have been dating for a long time. The two met at St. Peter's Collegiate School in Wolverhampton, England, according to a report on Hollywood Life. Liam and Sophia are even rumored to have gone engagement ring shopping at Tiffany & Co. jewelry store in New York City on December 19. Liam was spotted with the iconic blue bag in his hand.

Liam Payne and Sophia Smith apparently have nothing to worry about. Payne and Smith are obviously closer and stronger than ever, and that may be bad news for fans who are hoping that Payne will become single again someday.
