Liam Payne Reveals Sad Relationship News

Liam Payne and Maya Henry have called it quits and ended their engagement. According to Us Weekly, the former boy band One Direction singer revealed the news during an appearance on "The Diary of a CEO" podcast on Monday, June 7. "I am indeed [single]. 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," Payne explained. 

Speaking to the podcast's host, Steven Bartlett, he continued, "I'm just not very good at them so I just need to work on myself before I put myself on to somebody else ... I feel like 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." Per The Independent, the singer added, "I already feel good. It has already got me more concentrated and I hope she's happy."

Liam Payne and Maya Henry announced their engagement in 2020

As Metro reported, Liam Payne and Maya Henry were first romantically linked in the summer of 2018 and went public with their relationship a year later. In August 2020, the former "X Factor" star proposed to Maya with a diamond ring estimated to be worth around £3 million ($4.25 million), and the couple announced their engagement after two years of dating. 

Speaking previously about his relationship with Maya during an interview with KISS FM UK, Liam commented, "the difference is with [Maya], she's so relaxed that it helps me relax in a situation" (via Us Weekly). 

Prior to his relationship with Maya, Liam had dated his former "X Factor" co-star and mother of his child, Cheryl. Per The Mirror, Cheryl and Liam first began dating in 2016, and, just one year later, the pair welcomed their first child together, Bear Payne. Sadly, in 2018, the couple called it quits and went their separate ways after two and a half years together.
