Cheryl in Liam ‘cheat’ storm
POP star Cheryl reportedly thinks Liam Payne and Rita Ora had an AFFAIR while they were together.
Former One Direction hunk Liam, 24, and Rita, 27, worked together for six months and at the VMA’s they performed their sexy duet For You.
They were spotted looking cosy and cuddling up together in behind-the-scenes footage and now Cheryl, 35, is allegedly worried they were more than friends when she was with Liam.
A source said: “Liam always swore to her that nothing went on with him and Rita – it was all publicity to promote the song and his solo career.
“When she saw the footage of them, it was bound to make her blood run cold.
“She now feels that Liam has betrayed her.
“Seeing Liam and Rita together at the VMAs was a huge upset for Cheryl. The pictures look very intimate – it’s not the behaviour of people who claim to be ‘just mates’.
“Everything that has happened recently confirms to Cheryl that things were wrong in her relationship with Liam. She is feeling betrayed and angry.
“While friends are saying to her that the footage doesn’t prove anything, or that Liam ever cheated on her, everyone can see from the photos that they have chemistry.
“It’s hard for Cheryl to believe that it wouldn’t have existed back when they were still together.
“So, the fact that he may have fancied Rita back then is likely to sting poor Cheryl.”
