Liam Payne And Cheryl Split And Real Love Doesn't Exist

After more than two years the couple announced they were going in Two Directions.

Well, it must be the week for break-ups, after Sam and Tara ripped our hearts out announcing they are no longer together, Liam Payne and Cheryl stomped on our last remaining shreds of hope with their own announcement.

Liam posted on Twitter that the pair had decided to go their "separate ways" in what he called a "tough decision".

"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."

Cheryl echoed the statement in a tweet of her own.

The 24-year-old former One Direction member and the 35-year-old former Girls Aloud member met in 2008 when Liam auditioned for X Factor U.K. and Cheryl was a judge.

In that season, Liam was paired with his future bandmates Harry Styles, Zayn Malik, Niall Horan and Louis Tomlinson. Liam was 14-years-old during his audition.

In March 2017 the pair welcomed the arrival of their son Bear, with Liam sharing a super cute pic.
