Liam Payne and Cheryl split
Pop star Liam Payne and his girlfriend Cheryl – who share a baby boy born in March 2017 – announced their break-up via Twitter on Sunday (July 1st), two days after her 35th birthday.
“Cheryl and I are sad to announce that we are going our separate ways,” the former One Direction member wrote. “It’s been a tough decision for us to make. We still have so much love for each other as a family. Bear is our world and we ask that you respect his privacy as we navigate our way through this together.”
So the couple separated after months of dismissing split rumours and the Call My Name singer has slammed reports suggesting her mum was behind the couple’s weekend split.
At first it appeared the split was amicable, but now Cheryl has taken to Twitter to address reports her mother, Joan, was to blame for the bust-up.
“I hate responding to stuff at such difficult times but i cannot sit here and listen to such nasty, false articles regarding my man,” she posted on Twitter, adding “I don’t know why they (tabloids) involve her in stories about me. I can assure you she has absolutely nothing to do with any of it.“
