Liam Payne, 27, SPLITS from fiancée Maya Henry, 21, to ‘work on himself’ and admits he ‘feels better’ since breaking off his engagement

Liam Payne has called off his engagement to fiancée Maya Henry.The singer, 27, confirmed the split in a podcast, telling Steven Barlett on Diary of a CEO that he needed to ‘work on himself’ but that he felt upset at ‘hurting’ Maya, 21.
The couple confirmed their engagement in August 2020 after Liam popped the question during lockdown with a £3 million ring.

The pair were first linked back in August 2018 shortly after Liam’s high-profile split from Cheryl, 37, with whom he shares son Bear, three.

Confirming that he is now single, Liam said on the podcast: ‘I feel like more than anything at this point, I’m more disappointed in myself that I keep on hurting people.
‘That annoys me. I’ve just not been very good at relationships. And I know what my pattern of things is with relationships at this point.

‘I’m just not very good at them so I just need to work on myself before I put myself on to somebody else.’

The Strip That Down singer continued: ‘That’s where I got to in my last relationship.

‘I just wasn’t giving a very good version of me anymore, that I didn’t appreciate and I didn’t like being. I can honestly say I feel better out of it.
‘I didn’t feel good doing what I did but it had to happen. Just a corny way to say it was the best for us both.’

The split will come as a shock to their fans, as although the pair haven’t been photographed together since September 2020, the couple still follow each other on Instagram and have kept their pictures up with each other.
Liam popped the question to Maya last year with a dazzling diamond ring that set him back an eye-watering £3 million.
MailOnline exclusively broke the news of their engagement in August, the singer then confirmed he had popped the question over the first lockdown.

The pair were first linked back in August 2018 shortly after Liam split from Cheryl.

However, they first set eyes on each other three years earlier, when they were pictured together at a meet-and-greet event when One Direction fan Maya was 15.
It wasn’t until September 2019 that Liam publicly spoke about his blossoming romance, while promoting his single Stack It Up.

Prior to dating Maya he is said to have enjoyed a four-month whirlwind romance with supermodel Naomi Campbell, which ended in April 2019.

He said during an appearance on Capital Breakfast with Roman Kemp: ‘We’re fairly happy at the moment. I’m just past the point of where I’m bothered or not.

‘It’s not worth my happiness; I’d just rather go out and do what I want. I’ve got nothing to hide.’

Back in April, Liam also spoke about his strong bond with his ex, stating: ‘Cheryl is literally the best person to co-parent with. No stress involved. It’s very, very relaxed, and we spend a lot of time on FaceTime.

‘And it’s been really lovely, and I’m closer to them than I’ve ever been before, actually, which is really, really nice.
But bedtime FaceTime can go really well sometimes. Or I bought him some toys yesterday that I showed them on the FaceTime and it was like I had to go and travel over and hand the toys over the fence!’
