Rumors of the parting of 24-year-old Liam Payne and 34-year-old Cheryl Cole have been going the last few months, but the stars, whose one-year-old son Bear has been growing up, ignored gossip. At the Brit Awards in February, they, for the first time in a long time, appeared in the light together, thus dispelling rumors of a rupture. However, it turned out that all this was just a game for the public: in a recent interview with the British edition of the Evening Standard, Liam frankly told about problems in relations with Cheryl – and parting with her.

The funny thing is, it happened a week before we were supposed to get married. And after a week we broke up. I prefer to think that now we are somewhere in between. Yes, we have our own problems in the relationship: I will not sit here and say that everything is fine with us. Of course, you have to deal with a lot of problems – it happens in any relationship. But through all this we go together as a family – this is for me the most important thing, Said the singer.

From the interview it is difficult to understand at what stage the relations of the stars are now, but one thing is clear: Liam hopes that it is still possible to correct.

Yes, what happened, it happened – it will now always be with us, there will always be some tension in how we solve problems. But is there a relationship in which it is different? Ultimately, it is important only how you manage it – together or not, Admitted Payne.

Also, the ex-member of the One Direction group noted that she and Cheryl are very suitable for each other, since both have been in the show business for many years:

I was lucky to be in a relationship with a person who understands what I have to go through. I do not think that someone from the outside could do it all. Of course, it’s hard – to meet with a public person like me, every step of which the media distorts.

Recall, Cheryl Cole and Liam Payne met in 2008 – on the show The X Factor. Liam was among the participants, Cheryl – among the jury. Of course, then there were no romantic relations at all – Pein was only 14 years old. However, he was so eager to get Cheryl’s attention that he did not give up, and eventually the singer lost: in 2015, the stars began to meet, and soon became the parents of the son.
