Muscat: Girls Aloud singer Cheryl and One Direction’s Liam Payne have broken up after being together for more than two years.

In a statement on twitter Cheryl announced the breakup, “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.” Shortly after that Liam tweeted the same statement.

Cheryl and Liam started dating after One Direction performed on X-Factor, a show that Cheryl is a judge on, shortly after her divorce with French restaurateur Jean-Bernard Fernandez-Versini.

Liam and Cheryl had been dating for more than a year before she announced that she was pregnant with Liam’s child. The One Direction singer reportedly moved out of the mansion that he shared with Cheryl and their baby — Bear — who is around a year old.

According to online reports, the couple was having trouble in their relationship which they tried to work on, but things didn’t go as planned.
