Liam Payne claims having a child ruined his relationship with Cheryl
The couple welcomed their son Bear in 2017.
Liam Payne has spoken out about his relationship with Cheryl.
The couple, who share son Bear together, started dating in 2016.
However, they ended their relationship a year after Cheryl gave birth to their baby boy.
Liam Payne is now claiming that having a child with Cheryl ruined their relationship.
Their son is now 5-years-old.
Payne was speaking about his relationship on Logan Paul's podcast.
He praised the Fight For This Love singer: "She is the best mum in the world. I couldn’t ask for someone better.”
“I get to take my son to school one or two times a week and it’s the best thing. The relationship we have now as friends has only grown more.”
“We broke up for a reason and now she gives me full autonomy of my life and to do what I do and I know he’s [Bear’s] taken care of.”
Payne said they split up for the right reasons.
"To be honest with you, it ruined a relationship at that point but for all the right reasons.”
Payne said Cheryl stepped out of the spotlight to care for their son.
He said he will always care for his son, regardless of his relationship with Cheryl.
“My life now is his. My money is his. I have several companies he can run if he wants one day or he can sell… but right now he’s only five so we have a long way to go.”
