One Direction's Liam Payne has apparently 'changed' since splitting from his girlfriend.
The British heartthrob called it quits with back-up dancer Danielle Peazer in September after two years together. There is speculation the pair parted ways because One Direction's gruelling tour schedule kept them apart for long periods of time.
It seems Liam has been embracing his single status in recent months and has been spotted flirting with a series of girls during evenings out.
'Liam's changed since becoming single. He's much more relaxed. He basically had an epiphany and felt that he was missing out on all the fun his bandmates were having,' a source told Heat magazine. 'He's totally chilled out and is embracing the female attention that he constantly gets, but it's all just fun.'
It has been reported that the 19-year-old singer kissed four different girls while out at a nightclub in London last month.
He has also been seen at other clubs in the UK city partying and drinking champagne with friends.
Liam has been romantically linked to British singer Leona Lewis recently.
The stars are both former contestants of the UK X Factor and are said to have bonded after sharing their experiences from the reality show.
It has now been claimed they 'see each other when they can', with insiders revealing they have 'an incredibly close friendship'.
