Liam Payne is hand-in-hand with new girlfriend Kate Cassidy


PICTURE EXCLUSIVE: Liam Payne is hand-in-hand with new girlfriend Kate Cassidy as he treats PVC-clad blonde to a late night out during second public appearance as a couple

Liam Payne gave the latest indication that his new romance is something more than a passing fling as he ventured out in London on Tuesday evening. 

The One Direction star was hand-in-hand with latest girlfriend Kate Cassidy, just weeks after making his first public appearance with the British-American influencer. 

On that occasion the pair were dressed as Pamela Anderson and Tommy Lee during a Halloween party at central London venue Inca, but their second appearance was a more subdued affair.

Trading Tommy’s white vest and leather trousers for a smart black roll neck and matching dress trousers, Liam, 29, looked appropriately smart while leaving members-only club Annabels. 

He added to the look with a fitted black tuxedo, while polished boots rounded off a notably formal look as the couple made their way to Marylebone bar-restaurant Chiltern Firehouse – where they remained until 1:45am. 

Meanwhile Kate, 23, opted for a fitted PVC co-ord that drew attention to her slender physique as she enjoyed her latest night out with the star.

Unbuttoning her blouse, the blonde partially exposed her cleavage beneath a black lace bra while greeting onlookers outside the venue. 

It’s understood that Kate is an American citizen of British heritage, through her father, and is close friends with model Chantel Jeffries. 

Based in New Jersey on America’s east coast, she was educated at North Carolina’s 252-year old College of Charleston, the 13th oldest institute of learning in the United States.

An insider told The Sun: ‘They are mad about each other. Kate is a wild girl so Liam is definitely in for a fun ride. She is always out in nightclubs and seems to be loving London.’ 

Prior to their first appearance in London Liam was believed to be single after Texan model Maya Henry broke off their engagement in April.  

The singer had originally proposed with a £3million ring in August 2020 after little more than a year of dating the brunette, who he first met at a One Direction meet-and-greet when she was 15 years old.

But the engagement was called off after the singer was pictured with Florida based influencer Aliana Mawla, who bears a passing resemblance to the model.

While Maya is frequently pictured alone in the English capital, Liam was seen with ex-girlfriend Danielle Peazer as recently as June. 

The singer was pictured leaving Nobu Hotel in Shoreditch with former X Factor dancer Danielle over the summer – nine years after their split.
