Leona Lewis doesn't mind age gap

Leona Lewis says she has no issues with dating someone younger or older than her

Leona Lewis has hinted that she's not bothered by the eight-year age difference with her new man Liam Payne.

The X Factor alumni have been dating since September and until now, Leona has been tight-lipped about the romance.

But Leona, 27, reportedly told Look magazine: "If you have a bond with someone age doesn't come into it. I'd date someone younger or older - it doesn't matter to me. Or looks, really - it's all about maturity."

The songstress said: "You'd be surprised how much we have in common. He's great. We see each other when we can."

Leona also admitted One Direction star Liam, 19, paid her lots of compliments, saying: "It's very flattering to get things like that.

"It's cute. I'm having fun and enjoying myself."

She added: "I like someone who can take the reins, who knows what they want and is strong with me. I'm quite fiery, so they have to be able to handle that. But I do like to feel protected."

If you've developed a romantic interest in someone special, make your move. Playing the aggressor will boost your confidence. Keep your conversations light and playful.More
