His covert stay was rumbled though as he was caught sneaking out of the side door of the 48-year-old’s Manhattan apartment building the next morning.

However, according to reports, Naomi has made it clear to Liam that she does not want a ‘committed relationship’ – news that is said to have ‘crushed’ him.

‘Naomi has told Liam she is enjoying having fun but that is all she is ready for at the moment,’ an insider told The Sun.

‘She has said she’s found him a bit too clingy and full-on and does not want a committed relationship at this stage.’

They continued: ‘He accepted it but was a bit crushed. He is in awe of her and is finding it tough that she is so strong-willed and the one in control.

‘Liam seems to be a bit of a puppy dog around her and friends have warned him the situation is a car crash waiting to happen.’

Last week Naomi was spotted with the former X Factor star for the first time at the Vogue x Tiffany party at Annabel’s in Mayfair, leaving the venue just minutes apart.
