Liam Payne’s Directioners insist he’s not happy – and say Cheryl is to blame

On Sunday night Liam Payne and girlfriend Cheryl were snapped leaving trendy Mayfair restaurant Nobu. But what should have been a cute date night for the two pop stars sparked concern among 23-year-old Liam’s army of fans.

Cheryl, 33, once again fuelled rumours they’re expecting their first child, with what appeared to be a bump protruding through her camel jumper dress, but it was One Direction singer Liam who raised eyebrows.

Many of the Directioners took to social media to ask: ‘What is wrong with Liam?’ They insisted their idol looked ‘unhappy’ and ‘sick’ – and some even urged him to leave Cheryl, convinced it’s their relationship having a negative effect on him.

One wrote: ‘Is it just me or does Liam look really unhappy and sick??? My poor Lima Bean 🙁 #saveliampayne.’ Another said: ‘There is nothing worse than seeing Liam unhappy, really.’

It continued with: ‘Liam looks so miserable my poor baby,’ and: ‘Holy sh*t Liam looks SO unhappy!’

And, laying the blame firmly with former Girls Aloud star Cheryl, one fan blasted: ‘Cheriam is such a tragic ship honestly Liam should end it already he looks so unhappy.’

IS THIS WHAT CHERYL AND LIAM PAYNE COULD CALL THEIR FIRST CHILD?

The telling snaps come after Now magazine reported how Liam is feeling the strain over Cheryl’s on-going divorce battle with estranged husband Jean-Bernard Fernandez-Versini.

An insider told us how Liam hates the idea of having a baby out of wedlock, adding: ‘It’s understandably causing tension. Cheryl’s caught between two men who want very different things.’
