Cheryl Cole/Liam Payne
Love for one another and their son, Bear, is apparently not enough to keep Cheryl Cole and Liam Payne together.
Liam had insisted earlier this year that they were a very happy family. He and Cheryl still say they love each other and will continue to co-parent Bear.
So, why have they decided to split up? Friends have suggested they are simply two different people with little in common. This seems strange in view of their both being in the same profession. But it looks like the birth of their son, coupled with Liam’s burgeoning solo career, has caused a division in their relationship. Former One Direction star Liam has promoted his music with appearances all over the world. Conversely, Bear has become Cheryl’s top priority. She prefers to stay at home with him. Liam keeping in touch by Face Time just didn’t work for her.
