Liam Payne & his girlfriend of two years Cheryl have officially called it quits! Find out why they broke up here!
Liam Payne and Cheryl are officially broken up! After two years of dating, the couple, who share a son, Bear, together, took to Twitter to make the surprise announcement. Liam wrote to his fans, “Cheryl and I are sad to announce that we are going our separate ways. 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.”
Meanwhile, Cheryl echoed Liam’s heartfelt words and tweeted roughly the exact same statement. The two began dating all the way back in 2015, and their son Bear, 1, was born just last year on March 22, 2017. In announcing his birth, Liam wrote on Instagram, “I’m incredibly lucky to welcome our new baby boy into the world. It’s a moment that I will never forget for the rest of my life and my favorite memory I have so far.”
Fans have seen trouble brewing for this couple for quite some time. In fact, Liam himself admitted he got jealous of Cheryl one night. After Cheryl shared a picture of herself with Tom Hardy at the Prince’s Trust Awards, Liam responded to a headline that implied the picture was meant to make him jealous. “I am jealous, tbh,” he tweeted. “I want to cozy up to Tom Hard too. What can I say?”
We reported earlier that their relationship was on the rocks, but Liam was trying to salvage it. “Cheryl is ready to walk, but Liam wants to try and resolve their problems, he’s not ready to throw in the towel just yet,” a source close to Liam told HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY. “Cheryl has been pretty much a single mom this past year, looking after Bear on her own, while Liam has been focusing on his career—and she feels like they’ve totally grown apart. Liam believes they can reconnect again though, and he wants her to give him at least another couple of months before making any kind of permanent decision about their future.” Well, it looks like that permanent decision has been made.
