1D's Liam has been hanging out with Leona Lewis
But we know the singer is friends with the 1D star and they’ve met up for a drink a couple of times over the past week.
Liam, 19, has previously admitted to having a crush on Leona and called her ‘beautiful’ during an interview last year.
He’s thought to have met Leona, 27 – who recently ended her 2-year relationship with German boyfriend Dennis Jauch – when she gave him and his band mates some career advice.
The X Factor winner experienced a similar rise to fame as the 1D boys after she appeared on the ITV show in 2006.
Leona returned to the programme last month as a guest judge and will perform her new single Trouble in front of the studio audience this weekend.
‘The rumours are true I’m excited I’m back on X factor on Sunday!!! Mmm what to wear???’ she Tweets.
