Liam Payne and fiancée Maya Henry have called it quits on their on-again-off-again relationship. Here’s everything you need to know about their rocky romance and Liam’s dating history
It’s been revealed that the One Direction star and model called off their relationship for good last month.
Confirmation of their split comes amid cheating rumours, with pictures emerging that appear to show Liam with his arms around American model Aliana Mawla.
The pictures were originally posted to Mawla’s Instagram Stories, and included one of Liam with his arms wrapped around her and another black and white photo of the pair holding hands.
The images were then shared to a fan page on Instagram and Maya was tagged. She then responded to the pictures in the comments, saying: “I love all of the fans so much but please stop sending me these pictures of my fiancé wrapped around another woman.
“This is not me and it’s hard enough knowing this has happened without seeing it. Enough now.”
Despite the fact that Maya still referred to Liam as her fiancé in the comment, a source told MailOnline that the cheating allegations were false and that they had already split.
The source said: “Liam and Maya are no longer together and split up for good over a month ago.
“Maya’s comments referring to Liam as her fiancé are untrue and very misleading.”
As the couple go their separate ways, here’s everything you need to know about their rocky relationship and Liam’s dating past.

Liam and Maya first met all the way back in 2015, when the model attended a One Direction meet and greet, but their romance didn’t begin until a few years later.
In 2018 Liam was rumoured to have started dating Maya just a few weeks after his split from Cheryl Cole. The pair were spotted going on a number of dates in London.
It was then thought that they split up briefly, before getting back together in the summer of 2019.
The pair confirmed their relationship publicly for the first time in August 2019, and in September Maya shared a picture of her and Liam cuddling on her Instagram.
They continued to attend events together and shared loved-up pictures on social media, but less than a year after going public they were reported to have split in February 2020.
Reports of their relationship were conflicting, with one source telling The Sun: “Things between Liam and Maya had been rocky recently and they eventually decided to call it a day.”
While another source told the Mail: “Maya and Liam are definitely still a couple and are very happy together.”
However, the split rumours were put to rest when in August 2020 the pair confirmed their engagement and Maya was pictured wearing a ring reported to be worth a massive £3million.
But in June 2021, just nine months later, the pair called off the engagement and announced that they had split again.
Opening up about their relationship to Steven Bartlett on the Diary Of A CEO podcast, Liam said: “I feel like more than anything at this point, I’m more disappointed in myself that I keep on hurting people.”
In August 2021 rumours circulated that the pair had reconciled and this was confirmed in September when they appeared on the red carpet together.
But less than a year after reuniting, the pair have now split again.

While appearing on the Diary Of A CEO podcast, Liam also opened up about his general experience with his relationships, saying: “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.”
Since he shot to fame after One Direction’s X Factor success, Liam’s love life has been in the spotlight and he’s had several public relationships.
Liam began dating dancer Danielle Peazer in 2010 after meeting her on X-Factor, the pair dated for three years but called it quits in 2013 due to hectic work schedules.
After his split from Danielle, the singer then dated childhood friend Sophia Smith from 2013 to 2015, but the pair split due to long-distance difficulties.
One of Liam’s most notable relationships began in 2016 when fans were shocked to learn that he was dating Girls Aloud singer Cheryl Cole.
The pair had first met on the X Factor when Cheryl was a judge and Liam was just 16.
In 2017, they welcomed a son together, Bear Grey Payne, but a year after the birth of their son they confirmed in a statement that they were no longer together.
It was shortly after his split from Cheryl that rumours began to circulate about Liam’s relationship with Maya Henry.
