Liam Payne has become a music sensation and a renowned member of the formerly popular One Direction boyband since his participation in the X Factor auditions in 2008 and 2010.
Liam Payne Bio (Age)
The music star was born in Wolverhampton, West Midlands, England, to parents Karen Payne and Geoff Payne, who are of English descent. He has two older sisters named Nicola and Ruth. Liam was born prematurely, which affected some of his vital organs and required special treatment as an infant. He attended St. Peter’s Collegiate School, where he had to cope with bullies by taking boxing lessons, and finally completed his secondary education in one piece before moving to Wolverhampton College to study music technology. During his time at college, the young singer began performing at his school, especially when football matches were being played, and he was also a member of the Pink Productions Theatre Company.
The singer reinforced his performance when he auditioned for the X-Factor British Singing Competition for the first time in the fifth season, and although his performance was brilliant, Simon Cowell, one of the judges, sent him home because he was too young and not ready. In 2010, however, he registered for the competition again and although he was unable to give a solo performance, he was allowed to be part of a band group they called One Direction, which took third place in the competition. The band was later signed to Syco Entertainment, owned by Cowell, and it is known that after 58 years, they were the only band to top the Billboard 200 album charts with their first five albums, which reached number one. As the band’s fame grew, so did the album’s vocalists, and the band rose to celebrity status. Liam’s talent also extends to songwriting, and it is credited to him that he has written most of the band’s songs and songs for other artists, such as the song I will not break for singer Cheryl Cole.
In 2016 the band is said to have paused their activities, with the respective singers going their ways. Rumour has it that the breakup is not permanent and there is hope for a reunion in a few years. However, this has not brought Liam’s career to a standstill, as he has made solo productions, remixed songs, and collaborated with other singers such as Juicy J, Pharrell Williams, Ed Sheeran, Quavo, who appeared in his single Strip That Down, Steve Mac, and Rita Ora, with whom he released the song For You in January 2018.
The talented singer won the title Sexiest Man of the Year from Attitude magazine in 2015 and two BMI London Awards in 2016 for the songs Night Changes and Steal My Girl. In 2017 he received two nominations from Teen Choice Awards for Choice Summer Male Artist and Choice Male Hottie.
The talented singer also has nominations and potential awards pending at the Global Awards iHeartRadio Music Awards and the Brit Awards for 2018.
Is Cheryl Liam Payne’s Wife Or Girlfriend?
In 2008, teenage Liam Payne first met Cheryl Cole, who judged the show, during his first X Factor auditorium, and in a fast-paced run through 2016, the duo began dating regardless of their age difference, which is said to be 10 years. However, two years after the start of their relationship, there were rumors that the couple was on the verge of separation, although the showbiz power couple has not made an official statement about the real state of their relationship or the separation; there is also speculation that they married secretly, which is why they seek legal advice before taking any steps.
