The Brooklyn Nets played the Atlanta Hawks at London’s famous O2 arena Thursday night, resulting in a 127-110 win for the Hawks.

Sitting courtside were none other than Liam Payne and his gorgeous girlfriend Sophia Smith.
Both were dressed all in black and definitely seemed to be enjoying themselves. They held hands most of the game and kept very close to each other.

Liam and Sophia were not the only stars at the game.

Singer Ellie Goulding attended with friend and model Cara Delevingne, who seemed to be supporting the Nets, according to Cara’s hat.

If you remember, our very own Niall Horan apparently had a fling with Ellie Goulding a few months ago, although nothing was ever confirmed.

McFly’s Dougie Poynter and The Wanted’s Siva Kaneswaran were also present in the crowd.

We don’t really know why there were so many famous people in the stands at this particular game. Maybe there’s some sort of famous-people society that we don’t know about and they all made plans together!

Nah, we doubt that. Especially considering the ongoing rivalry between One Direction and The Wanted.

However, it doesn’t seem like there was any tension between Liam and Siva during the game. All the stars seemed to keep to themselves, enjoying watching the game, just like everyone else.

It’s great that Liam and the rest of One Direction seem to be having fun during their time off before the start of their Where We Are tour. They definitely deserve it!
