Liam Payne has announced that he and partner Cheryl have split up. The announcement comes just one day after the Girls Aloud singer's 35th birthday.
On Sunday, the 24-year-old boybander posted the news on his Twitter, writing, "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."
The announcement comes after months of speculation that the two were headed for a breakup.
The couple is not married but welcomed a son named Bear in March 2017.
