Liam Payne from One Direction and Cheryl have been a bit off the radar recently; and whilst we assumed it was because they were seeing how many marshmellows they could fit in each other's mouths whilst walking their adorable new dog, this source reckons it's because she's 'seriously paranoid' about his solo career.
Cue us rolling our eyes so much they nearly fall out, pulling out most dubious face and saying HMMMMMM so loudly the Queen of Serbia can hear us.
Right so according to an insider over at Closer magazine, Cheryl is worried that Liam Payne's impending solo career (he's signed a contract with Capitol Records, y'know) is gonna take centre stage and leave her lagging behind.
"Cheryl is very supportive of Liam's career and wants the best for him", the source began. "However, she's secretly paranoid that when he's back in the spotlight doing promotional work she'll fade into the background and they won't be on equal footing anymore.
"Cheryl isn't used to being the less famous one in a relationship. She's accustomed to having everything revolve around her, so she's struggling with the power dynamic in this relationship."
Considering she's a thing in her own right and undoubtedly wants the best for Paynis (because seriously, who could look at that face and NOT?), it's speculation central over at Sugarscape HQ.
