Liam and Leona have gone out for drinks together

Leona Lewis has refused to deny that she’s seeing One Direction‘s Liam Payne after his split from dancer Danielle Peazer.

The singer met up for a drink with Liam, 19, a couple of times last week and says this wasn’t a move by her PR team to promote her new album Glassheart.

‘I don’t do PR stunts. It’s not my style. I don’t need to do that. I haven’t denied it or said it’s not true,’ says Leona, 27.

‘I just haven’t commented. I don’t talk about my personal life. I think I’ve learnt from my previous relationships to basically keep my mouth shut.’

Leona – who recently ended her 2-year relationship with German dancer Dennis Jauch – met Liam when she gave him and his band mates some career advice.

She only has praise for the 1D star.

‘He is a really sweet, lovely guy. I’m a fan of One Direction,’ Leona tells the Daily Mirror.

‘We have been friends for a year and a half.’
