Liam Payne defends GF Kate Cassidy after troll says she's only with him for money
ENGLAND, UK: Liam Payne is in zero-tolerance mode when it comes to his new girlfriend Kate Cassidy. Payne began dating model Maya Henry in 2019, and they announced their engagement in August 2020. In June 2021, Payne announced they had ended their run. Now, the One Direction singer has moved on and is head over heels for Kate. He slammed a troll who sent him a direct message on Instagram saying that Kate is with him for his money. The singer took a screenshot of the story and shared it on his stories supporting his girlfriend and wrote, "If it was just for the money I'd give her all of it."
Payne wrote, "Gotta say you could tell me anything and I couldn't be turned, I've never felt a love like I do for Katelyn. We make each other better people." Tackling the gold digger accusations, Payne continued, "If it was just for the money I'd give her all of it. It's not though (please remember I'm hella sexy) and I know I'm fun and a loveable person. And I don't give a f**k to say that for the first time in my life I'm happy to be me and that's priceless." Hours later, the 29-year-old singer deleted the stories. The two have posted about each other on several occasions and made their red carpet debut as a couple at the British Fashion Awards.
