As Naomi Campbell becomes a 50-year-old mother, we take a look back at the supermodel’s scorching love life -om pop stars and actors to business moguls and oil moguls …
2019: Liam Payne
Naomi was linked to One Direction star Liam Payne, 23 years her junior, after her split from Skepta and split from Cheryl.
They say they enjoyed a few dates, but it ended up being short-lived.
It started with a seemingly harmless Instagram flirt, enjoying and commenting on each other’s steamy posts.
Liam described her as “perfection in a person”, with her calling him a “beautiful soul”. They were then spotted during musician Davido’s concert at the O2 in London.
There have been reports of Liam bragging about the couple’s “mind-blowing” sex, but when Naomi was asked outright about the date on The Jonathan Ross Show, she said the rumors were “humorous.” All romance seemed to end soon after.

Their scorching GQ magazine cover, in underwear only, drove fans crazy.
But rapper Skepta and Naomi’s date seemed over and dusted off before too long.
Of the shoot, Naomi later said, “We basically did this shoot on our own, it wasn’t for a post, and once I saw the footage I was like ‘no , no, no, we should get out … ”
“And so I started making calls. It wasn’t like I was going to wait months for it to come out – it has to come out in the next few or it doesn’t come out at all.
Go out indeed, with the duo participating in a joint interview at the time, playing shyly about any romance. To this day, it’s still unclear, but Skepta apparently mentioned Naomi on one of his tracks in 2020. They’re believed to be still close.
