Liam Payne And Sophia Smith NOT Engaged, Despite Reports (EXCLUSIVE)
Liam Payne and Sophia Smith are NOT engaged, despite widespread reports. Gossip Cop can exclusively correct the claim. A rep for the One Direction singer tells us that allegation is untrue.
The rumors began on social media on Sunday, with fans turning “#SophiamIsEngaged” into a trending topic. Thousands of Directioners sent tweets using the hashtag, taking it as fact. Many posted messages commenting on the supposed news, while a few were rightly skeptical.
Outlets like HollywoodLife and the Mirror picked up the tweets, and joined the speculation, only causing the rumor to spread further. HollywoodLife, for instance, wrote, “Could there be wedding bells in store for Liam Payne and Sophia Smith? The One Direction fandom is going wild over rumors that Liam popped the question to his longtime love and childhood crush — and most are loving the idea of Sophiam’s love being everlasting. So what exactly is going on?!”
Allow Gossip Cop to tell HollywoodLies and everyone else: Payne and Smith are not set to wed. A rep exclusively tells Gossip Cop, “They are not engaged.” The month of July has been quite eventful, to say the least, for the world of One Direction, with Harry Styles falling on stage, Zayn Malik cutting ties with Naughty Boy, and the announcement that Louis Tomlinson is going to be a father. But there is NO Payne engagement news to add to all of it.
