In June 2021, the singer confirmed their split during an episode of “The Diary of a CEO” podcast. “I am indeed [single],” Liam said. “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.”
He continued, “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.”
The singer’s rep confirmed to Us Weekly in August 2020 that the two stars were gearing up to walk down the aisle together after two years of dating. When asked about the engagement during a virtual appearance on Good Morning America in September 2020, Liam gushed, “We’re really happy.”
As for the reason behind their split, Liam explained, “I just wasn’t giving a very good version of me anymore, that I didn’t appreciate and I didn’t like being. I can honestly say I feel better out of it,” the “Strip That Down” crooner shared. “I didn’t feel good doing what I did but it had to happen. Just a corny way to say it was the best for us both.”
The couple first sparked rumors that they were getting married after the Daily Mail obtained photos of Maya wearing a diamond ring on that finger while out to dinner with the One Direction member in August 2020. “They looked so smitten during their meal and it was hard to miss Maya’s ring — it’s a real dazzler!” an onlooker told them. “They couldn’t stop smiling. It’s clear they’re so deeply in love.”
The outlet added that the “Strip That Down” crooner popped the question during lockdown, but kept it under wraps. “I am very lucky,” Liam told KISS FM U.K. in September 2020. “She is really great. I’m very happy right now.”
Liam and Maya initially sparked romance rumors in August 2018. Prior to his relationship with Maya, the musician was romantically linked to Sophia Smith, Cairo Dwek and Cheryl Cole with whom he welcomed a son named Bear in March 2017.
