Liam Payne teases fans with moody new photograph

Liam Payne really likes to keep his fans guessing! The 23-year-old singer teased Instagram followers on Wednesday by sharing a moody new photograph, which many believe could be the artwork of his upcoming solo material – especially given that he flew to LA this week to continue working on his music.

The black and white image shows Liam sat beside a wall which has been graffitied with the words, 'Love Feels Best'. He captioned the snapshot with the same words, leading to speculation he could be about to drop his debut single. "The title of your new solo song?!?!" one fans asked, with another joked: "Thank you for creating madness in the fandom!"

Of course some are also wondering whether the message could be aimed at girlfriend Cheryl, who is widely rumoured to be pregnant with the couple's first child.

It is not thought that the 33-year-old has joined Liam in the States this time around, so there's a chance that Liam is sending her a sweet message – just as he did a few weeks ago during his last visit to LA. "I miss you!... the things to make me do," Liam wrote alongside a selfie of the couple with face masks on.

Meanwhile, Cheryl has some big news of her own this week. Her 18-month marriage to Jean-Bernard Fernandez-Versini officially came to an end on Thursday when the couple were granted a 'quickie divorce' at the Central Family Court in London.

The star's rep confirmed the news in a statement to Mirror Online: "Cheryl Fernandez-Versini and Jean-Bernard Fernandez-Versini have today obtained Decree Nisi in their divorce proceedings. No further comment will be made and they ask for their privacy to be respected."

Cheryl married French businessman Jean-Bernard in a secret ceremony in Mustique in July 2014 after three months of dating.

Their ill-fated relationship ended in January - it was previously claimed the former Girls Aloud singer waited until last year's X Factor was over to file for divorce from her husband, officially splitting on their secret two-year anniversary.
