Cheryl and Liam Payne announce split

Singers Cheryl and Liam Payne have announced they are splitting up after more than two years together.

The former Girls Aloud star, 35, and One Direction member, 24, confirmed the decision in posts on social media.

The couple have a son, Bear, who was born in March last year.

They said they were sad to make the announcement, and it had been a tough decision to make, adding We still have so much love for each other as a family.

Cheryl tweeted Bear is our world and we ask that you respect his privacy as we navigate our way through this together.

Newcastle-born Cheryl started her career on ITV’s Popstars The Rivals in 2002 as one of the members of Girls Aloud. She then went on to launch a solo career and became a judge on The X Factor in 2008.

In 2016, the twice-married star, who was born Cheryl Tweedy, said she wanted to be known just by her first name.

Her relationship with Payne began after her divorce from French restaurateur Jean-Bernard Fernandez-Versini. She was previously married to the former England footballer Ashley Cole.

Payne, originally from Wolverhampton, has gone on to forge a successful solo career after One Direction decided to take a break in 2015, with his song Strip That Down being streamed globally more than a billion times.

In March, Payne admitted he and Cheryl had relationship struggles, amid tabloid press reports about their life together.
