One Direction member Liam Payne recently revealed that he is dating former X factor judge Cheryl Fernandez- Versini. As what the latest news updates speculated, however, not everyone is happy about their romantic flair. Little Mix member Perrie Edwards is allegedly pissed off at her friend for dating the aspiring songwriter.

The buzz could have been made by some 1D fans who do not want them together. However, Independent revealed that Edwards is happy for her friend and her newfound love. Citing the Daily Mirror newspaper, the website quoted Edwards saying, “Cheryl is a good friend of mine.”

“She wants to do whatever makes her happy… I’m happy for her, whatever makes her happy I think is fine,” she added. Payne shocked Directioners by announcing their relationship on Instagram.

“Happy#internationalwomensday to my favourite woman in the world 😘😘hope I make you as happy as u make me X,” as he captioned a photo of her on his social media account.

Notably, the two met at the competition where One Direction was auditioning and Versini was one of the judges.

Liam Payne dated Sophia Smith in the past, in whom the Little Mix member has a say as well. “I knew about them a little while ago, but who thought it would actually come out? I didn’t,” the site wrote as quoted from Now magazine.

Meanwhile, Versini is currently facing divorce with former husband Jean-Bernard. They split  in July 2014 after a rollercoaster relationship. She has not commented about the divorce or her relationship with the One Direction member yet.

Aside from his blossoming relationship. Liam Payne is currently pursuing a songwriting career. It has been previously reported that he was hired by Jennifer Lopez as one of his songwriters.

“Liam was asked round to meet Jennifer and they had a great chat about music and how they thought their styles could come together to create something she’d love,” the source revealed on Sugarscape. “It went really well so he’s now going to work his hardest to write as many tracks as possible and present them to her,” the insider added.

There was even a report earlier that he wants to be a rapper, which is different among other 1D members.
