Ever since Liam Payne auditioned on The X Factor and joined One Direction, there’s been one question on everyone’s minds. And that is — is the swoon-worthy singer single? We mean, between his adorable personality, angelic voice, gorgeous body and breathtaking smile, he’s pretty much stolen everyone’s hearts by now, so it’s only natural that fans are curious about his love life.
The singer appears to be single! He announced in June 2021 that he and longtime love Maya Henry had called off their engagement. “I am indeed [single],” the singer confirmed while on “The Diary of a CEO” podcast.
“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,” Liam explained. “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.”
Liam’s rep confirmed that he and Maya got engaged after two years of dating to Us Weekly in August 2020 after they first sparked engagement rumors earlier that month. At the time, the Daily Mail obtained photos of Maya wearing a diamond engagement ring (which is reportedly worth almost $4 million) while out to dinner. “We’re really happy,” Liam gushed when asked about the engagement during a virtual appearance on Good Morning America in September 2020.
As for what led to their split? “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,” Liam explained. “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.”
He added, “I know I was the problem. I need to sort myself out and I already feel good.”
