Liam Payne and Cheryl Tweedy have broken up.  

The pair released a joint statement on their separate Twitter accounts which read 'It's been a tough decision for us to make. We still have so much love for each other as a family.' 

Cheryl and Liam welcomed a son, Bear, last March. The pair have been together for two and a half years. 

A source told The Sun that the split was amicable and was a 'mutual loving decision.' The source added they 'get on great and this was a decision they made taking into account what's right for their son.'

According to The Mirror, they split up two weeks ago and Liam no longer lives in the house that they once shared. 

Both Liam and Cheryl were hit with split rumours back at the BRIT Awards earlier this year, claims which they both denied.

Soon after, Cheryl took to Twitter and called out those who said their appearance at the awards was a publicity stunt.

Speaking to The Evening Standard a few months ago, Liam admitted that they were going through a rough patch.  

Over the weekend, Cheryl celebrated her 35th birthday with two of her former Girls Aloud pals Nicola and Kimberly. It's claimed that Liam was in the UK but did not attend.
