They say any press is good press, right?
On Tuesday, Cheryl posted a photo set on Instagram from her evening at the Prince's Trust Awards, one of which had her posing alongside Tom Hardy. The tabloids ran with it, implying that the photo was proof that Liam and Cheryl were still having relationship issues.
The rumors began in mid-February of this year. Fans claimed the trouble came from Liam's busy career, which forced him to leave behind Cheryl and their son, Bear. Cheryl and Liam, also lovingly referred to as "Chiam," have vehemently denied the rumors.
Rightfully so, the former One Direction member has decided to use humor to fight off the gossip. Taking to social media, Liam tweeted at a tabloid that is targeting his relationship.
The media outlet wrote a story with the headline 'Cheryl Cosies Up to Tom Hardy as She 'Attempts to Make Boyfriend Liam Payne Jealous,'" to which Liam responded, "I am jealous tbh I want to cozy up to Tom hardy too what can I say."
