Louis Walsh has revealed that Liam is 'in love' with Cheryl
“He’s a nice guy and he’s in love with her. He’ll make her happy. I think she was in a bad place over the last two years. And she brought her misery to the X Factor.”
Louis thinks the pair would work well together on a professional level, too, praising Liam’s songwriting skills.
“I think she could have a hit if she wants but she has to choose the right song,” he said.
Louis suggested Liam also help with her singing career
“She’s no Mariah Carey or Celine Dion but I’d put her voice in there along with Kylie Minogue, Britney Spears or Katy Perry. She just needs the right songs. Maybe Liam can write her some, he’s a good songwriter.”
Meanwhile, as HELLO! online reported previously, Cheryl is to finally divorce from ex-husband Jean-Bernard Fernandez-Versini this week, according to the Daily Mirror.
The publication revealed that the decree nisi will be read in London on Thursday. The outlet also reports that court papers show that no financial settlement has been reached for the pair, who were married for 18 months.
The split news comes amid speculation that Cheryl is pregnant with boyfriend Liam Payne after being snapped with what appears to be a baby bump.
