He recently separated from his girlfriend of two years.
And, clearly, chart-topper Liam Payne is moving on without delay – as he proved by getting his own bachelor pad, this week.
According to reports, the ex-1D star, 24, has rented an apartment in West London, where he’s now living alone and enjoying his freedom.
The property is said to be rather lacking in “glamour”, but is also perfect for his newly-singe life, which involves touring the globe and recording in the USA without reproach.
Meanwhile, as is often the case with break-ups, ex-girlfriend Cheryl continues to live in his Surrey mansion while she raises their son, Bear.
Cheryl and Liam split
The Sun, a source said: “Liam had to find somewhere quickly when they split and his main criteria was a place in London.
“Although the Surrey house was his, he wanted Cheryl and Bear to be comfortable and safe, which is why he moved out.
“The building he’s in now is nowhere near as glamorous as anywhere he’s lived since becoming famous. It’s miles from where you’d expect a millionaire pop star to live.”
The comments come shortly after Liam opened-up about his experiences as a father.
“I always wanted to be a young dad, but I didn’t really expect that I’d ever be in this place,” he told People Magazine.
“When I’m at home, I’m a dad. Then when I [work], I see all these crazy things. I’ve been going by Dada Montana,” he joked.
