One Direction heartthrob Liam Payne split from his girlfriend Sophia Smith after eight months of dating. The “Best Song Ever” hitmaker and the brunette student called it quits reportedly due to the pressures of life on the road. Liam Payne was clearly devastated by the breakup as he posted cryptic messages via Twitter on Friday (May 2, 2014). "Can't be without you," the “What Makes You Beautiful” singer wrote. "Worse thing I ever did was let you go. No all I got left is the thought of you."
Liam Payne, who is currently on the "Where We Are" tour with his popular British-Irish group One Direction, first met his girlfriend Sophia Smith at St. Peter's Collegiate School in Wolverhampton, England. The couple went public with their relationship last August after the young idol split up with his longterm girlfriend Danielle Peazer. Liam Payne and Sophia Smith were last pictured together at a book launch in London just five weeks ago.
