Liam Payne: Cheryl almost broke up with me
LIAM PAYNE has revealed that Cheryl almost ended their relationship — and might have succeeded had he not ‘clung on’.
The One Direction star and the former X Factor judge welcomed their first child in March after dating for just over a year.
But it wasn’t all plain sailing for the pair.
Liam said Cheryl once tried to break things off, but changed her mind when he reassured her they could work things out.
Speaking to The Sun about their relationship, he said: ‘There’s one song that is basically a phone call that happened between me and her when she was about to let it go.
‘This is a long time ago. And it’s basically me trying to cling on and say: “No, no, no it’s all going to work out — don’t worry about it, give it time.”‘
But he hastened to add that their relationship was ‘great’ now.
‘Me and Cheryl, our relationship is amazing and I put that down to her support more than anything, she’s just so great,’ he said.
However, despite their relationship going from strength to strength, the singer doesn’t believe they’ll tie the knot — because he sees marriage as a ‘religious thing’.
He explained: ‘I’m not really a religious person, so I know it’s not really on the cards for me at the moment.
‘So no, not yet. We have a baby together, you know. Our love for each other can’t be more serious, so it is what it is, I guess.’
Liam is in the middle of a massive promo tour across the US in support of his debut single Strip That Down, while new mum Cheryl is at home in the UK with their son, Bear.
But the hunk revealed that his other half doesn’t mind him being so far away.
He said: ‘She’s like, “You’ve got to go out and do your job, do your job.” That’s how she is with it. And Bear’s beautiful and I love him and I miss him terribly.’
