Liam Payne & GF Cheryl Split After 2 Years

Liam Payne & GF Cheryl Split After 2 Years

It’s over between One Direction’s Liam Payne, 24, and girlfriend Cheryl, 35.

The pair, who welcomed son Bear in March 2017, announced the split on Twitter saying, “We 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.”

The message continued, “Bear is our world and we ask that you respect his privacy as we navigate our way through this together.”

The couple started dating in 2016 after having met years before. Liam was a contestant on “The X Factor” in 2008, when the Girls Aloud member was a judge.

Cheryl had two high-profile marriages before dating Liam — she was wed to footballer Ashley Cole from 2006-2010 and restaurateur Jean-Bernard Fernandez-Versini from 2014-2016.

She is often referred to by her married names, but Cheryl goes by her first name only and legally reverted back to her maiden name, Tweedy, after her divorce from Fernandez-Versini.
