As Scoopla reported, One Direction hottie Liam Payne and his girlfriend of two years Sophia Smith broke up. Now, the superstar is putting his feelings out there.



While we don’t know who broke up with who, Liam has shared in an interview with The Sun that he is truly heartbroken.

He said, “I'm absolutely devastated to have split with Sophia. Being on the tour all this year and being away from her was so hard. We spent so much time apart. But in order to do right by somebody sometimes it's better not to do what your heart wants, but to do what's better for them."

So is he ready to dust himself off and move on? It doesn’t look likely anytime soon.

He revealed, “Right now I'm looking forward to some alone time to figure out who I am and what I want to be."


With One Direction taking a break shortly, what will the heartthrob do?

He said, “I'm starting to think about next year when we take a break from the band for a while. I'm going into music publishing, collaborating and writing songs for other artists. I'm very excited to see the business from the other side. I feel I have built up a lot of knowledge of the craft of songwriting, so I think this will work really well."

He mentioned that he will definitely be spending a lot of time with one of his band mates in particular.

"I still want to work with Louis [Tomlinson] he is going into the label side of things, so the two match up perfectly. Hopefully we can develop some great artists together. I know he'll be a huge success. He has a great ear for finding talent." He said.

Oh, we love you Liam! Please feel better soon.
