Looks like we may have a breakup on our hands! Liam Payne and Cheryl Fernandez-Versini seemed to have called it quits after Liam took down his social media pic with the ‘X Factor’ judge. Why the pettiness? Get the details here!
Nothing screams “breakup” more than a good old fashioned social media purge, which is exactly what Liam Payne, 22, took part in on March 1. The select photo he trashed? Only the one featuring his new girlfriend, Cheryl Fernandez-Versini, 32. The boy bander even went so far as to change his Insta profile pic — now THAT’S a breakup move if we ever saw one!
Liam appeared to confirm he was dating Cheryl when he shamelessly posted a black and white photo of him cuddling with the star on Instagram on Feb. 28. He, apparently, loved the photo so much that he even made it his prof pic on the social media site — what a statement, right? But on March 1 the viral pic was nowhere to be found. Hmm, why the sudden change of heart, Liam?
Liam swapped his cozy pic with Cheryl for a solo black and white selife. And although the pic is certainly hot, we’re wondering what happened with his girl. And we’re not the only ones! Fans took to Twitter immediately after the switch to demand answers. One concerned user wrote, “Profile pic changed already… Why???” Yeah Liam, why?!
Providing no clarity whatsoever, Liam followed the picture change by uploading a meme of himself on stage with the quote, “Live your dream and never wake up.” Super helpful. But hey, at least we know the singer is supposedly still happy. After all, his Insta status remains “Happy.” So maybe the alleged split was his idea?
Either way, a breakup is never easy — even if the relationship only lasted a few months. The couple had reportedly started seeing each other in December 2015, according to a Feb. 27 story in The Sun. The article also stated that the two are “madly in love.” Oh how fast things can change! You never know though, maybe the couple is just trying to stay out of the spotlight and want to keep their relationship on the DL for now.
HollywoodLifers, do you think Cheryl and Liam have really called it quits so fast? Sound off!
