Los Angeles - Liam Payne has said "fuck you" to fans who have criticised his new girlfriend.

The One Direction star confirmed he is dating Sophia Smith - whom he has known since they went to school in Wolverhampton, in England's Midlands area, together - on Monday, which has since resulted in her getting a great deal of unwanted attention on social networking sites, and the extent of the abuse has riled the boy band star.

Liam - who confessed all about his new romance to Yahoo! omg! - posted on Twitter on Wednesday: "Always sad to get on here to read horrible stuff about someone you care about... There is that old saying though if you ain't got shit nice to say then fuck you. (sic)"



Jealous One Direction fans had earlier been speculating about Sophia, calling her fake and accusing her of only wanting to be with him for his fame.

'She cares about your money'

Twitter use PrincessaMalik wrote: "Isn't @TheSophSmith the one who rejected @Real_Liam_Payne 22 times? Now she's back cause she can take all his money. It's obvious. Wow (sic)"

User HazzFeet wrote: "@TheSophSmith I know 99% of our fandom hates you, And I'm one of them (sic)"

Another user, itspayneslove, said: "she cares about you[r] money Liam. Oops (sic)"

Other fans called for Liam to get back with his ex-girlfriend, dancer Danielle Peaser, who he met on The X Factor in 2010 and had an on/off relationship with until they split for good in May 2013.

Liam and the rest of 1D - Zayn Malik, Louis Tomlinson, Harry Styles and Niall Horan - all attended the world premiere of their 3D concert movie One Direction: This Is Us in London's Leicester Square on Tuesday evening.
