Former One Direction member Liam Payne and partner Maya Henry have officially broken up for the second time. But, some believe it is due to alleged cheating from Payne. It is unsure when the two split, but it has been confirmed by Payne’s reps it has been for at least a month. But, many are concerned about the actual date, as a photo of Liam Payne snuggling another woman has recently gone viral. Since the woman’s face is not shown, fans incorrectly judged the woman in the photo to be Henry. But, Henry commented that the photo was not her and asked for fans to stop tagging her.

“Please stop sending me these pictures of my fiancé wrapped around another woman. This is not me and it’s hard enough knowing this has happened without seeing it,” she commented. So, fans are concerned that this means Payne had cheated on her, and even worse, she found out about it from fans misjudging the photo as her. The couple has been in the news for controversy before, as Payne is seven years older than her and allegedly started dating her when she was 17. “Liam Payne cheating on his fiancée and her finding out bc some fan thought it was her in that pic and tagged her in it oh it’s bad.”

But, some fans of the singer were acting a bit odd. Some suspected that this was a PR stunt and that he did not cheat on Maya. Others pointed out that it would be an odd PR stunt to do and would not bring any positivity or notoriety to the singer. “My heart hurts for Liam. He needs a new team. He needs to surround himself with loved ones. He needs to stop these clubs & bday party performances. His Insta posts are odd. He’s definitely not sober. And I don’t know who the hell this chick is, but I will protect him at all costs,” one fan commented. Others thought this was just an attempt to excuse his actions.

Overall, the situation seems messy and there is no confirmation either way. But, fans still feel bad for Henry in case this does point to infidelity, as it definitely is a hard way to find out about the cheating.
