BREAKING: Liam Payne & Cheryl Break Up After Almost 3 Years Together

By  | 

Liam Payne and Cheryl Cole Fernandez-Versini faced tons of breakup rumors over the course of their almost three-year relationship, but always laughed them off and confirmed they were happier than ever. But this time, unfortunately, it’s more than just rumors we’re dealing with.

The former One Direction singer confirmed on Twitter earlier today that he and his baby mama decided to break up.

“Cheryl and I are sad to announce that we are going our separate ways,” he tweeted. “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 35-year-old released her own statement, too, which reads, “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. Bear is our world and we ask that you respect his privacy as we navigate our way through this together.”

The Sun‘s Dan Wootton reports that the exes, who welcomed son Bear Payne in March 2017, actually separated two weeks ago and the 24-year-old has apparently already moved out of their shared home.

A source close to the celebs explains, “Cheryl and Liam worked really hard on their relationship — they had troubles earlier this year and were able to get through them. But they’re in different stages of their lives and, after a lot of careful thought, came to a decision that it’s best for everyone if they do go their separate ways.”

“He still cares for her and she cares for him,” the insider continues. “They still have an ongoing relationship together. They have a baby together.”

We wish Liam and Cheryl nothing but the best as they continue to co-parent their son.
