English Singers Liam Payne and Cheryl have been together for over two years now but unfortunately, their time together comes to an end as the pair announced their split via social media today, reported BBC.

Taking to Twitter, the  former Girls Aloud star wrote, "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."

24-year-old Payne shared the same message on his Twitter handle.

The 35-year-old singer and former One Direction member, who allegedly broke up two weeks ago, have a one-year-old son named Bear together.

Newcastle-born Cheryl started her career on ITV's Popstars: The Rivals in 2002 as one of the members of band Girls Aloud. She then went on to launch a solo career and became a judge on hit British singing show The X Factor in 2008.


Cheryl met Payne when he auditioned for the show the same year, aged 14. "I think you've got charisma," she told him, after he performed the jazz standard song Fly Me To The Moon. "I think you're really cute," she said at the audition.
