One Direction’s Liam Payne might be spending his time during the group’s hiatus writing breakup songs. The singer and his girlfriend of two years, Sophia Smith, have reportedly decided to call it quits.
The Daily Mail and other sources report that the Liam and Sophia’s relationship ended on Saturday, days after the group canceled their concert when Liam suddenly fell ill. Before news of the split became public, Liam tweeted a cryptic message that many are taking as confirmation of the news.
Liam and Sophia began dating in 2013 after being school friends and are thought to have broken up before at least once before getting back together. Liam admitted over the summer that he had considered the right time for proposing to Sophia.
The breakup happens as many publications have begun reporting rumors that Liam has increasingly been showing signs of stress on the final stages of the OTRA tour and with all the interviews that he’s had to do related to One Direction’s planned hiatus.
