Despite their recent attempts at squashing break up rumors, it seems that gossip is still swirling, indicating that the duo’s romance is on the rocks. Recently, The Sun reported that the One Direction alum is more focused on his growing solo career than on his family life with the X Factor judge.
Per the report, Payne has allegedly “gone cold” on his romance with the Girls Aloud veteran and is spending a lot of time away from Cheryl and their son, Bear, in order to promote his debut album. Man, oh man.
Insiders told the publication that Liam’s busy traveling schedule has caused him to drift from the brunette 34-year-old. One tipster noted:
“Up until now everyone has assumed it’s Cheryl who has gone cold on the relationship but it’s the other way around. Liam appears more committed to a pop star lifestyle than becoming a real family man.”
Apparently, Cheryl’s reluctance to wed Payne has also caused strife in the twosome’s romance. It’s said the Call My Name artist isn’t eager to wed again after two failed marriages. The source continued:
“He was very keen to marry Cheryl early on but she wasn’t up for it because of her two failed marriages. Since then he has been on the road, with [Cheryl’s mom] Joan spending more time at the house.”
Still, after their cute appearance at the BRIT Awards, we’re not rushing to declare this relationship as dead. Whether the rumors are true or not, we’re definitely rooting for these two!!
