Liam Payne opens up on Cheryl 'marriage' and 'splitting up' https://t.co/Hj3RH9Sd4k— Evening Standard (@EveningStandard) March 21, 2018
Liam gave an interview to the Evening Standard, in which he displayed his new unfortunate haircut and talked about the rumours that surround his and Cheryl's relationship and baby Bear. He also teased a new single.
About the break-up rumours:
“The funniest thing was a week before we were getting married. The next week we’re splitting up. And the thing for me is, I just like to think we’re somewhere in the middle. You know, we have our struggles — like of course I’m not gonna sit here and say that everything’s absolutely fine and dandy, because of course you go through different things, and that’s what a relationship is. But we go through them together as a family and that’s the most important thing for me. This part of our relationship was never not going to happen, there was always going to be a little bit of tenseness in the way we sort ourselves out, but tell me a relationship in the world that doesn’t go through a spot like that? It’s about whether you make it through or not, together, is the main point there I guess.”
About dating someone who gets his job and knows what it's like:
"I’m very afortunate that I partnered up with someone who’s … very understanding with what I do. Because I don’t think anybody else could take it. It’s difficult, obviously: having someone else who’s so high-profile in the media pushes everything that I do to another level, and I think it’s weird. I feel like the press are more obsessed with it than the nation are, which is quite funny. (and true lol) It is about making it work for us, not making it work how people think it should work.”
On keeping Bear out of the public eye:
He says he got to make the choice to appear on The X Factor at age 14 for himself and wants the same for Bear: “Rather than being pictured and being put in places, I wanna give him the chance [of a life outside of the public eye]. If I take it away from him now, he never has the chance to go back.”
His new single is called "Familiar" and will be released next month.
Can you believe that Liam has the most successful post-1D solo single with STD, ONTD?
