Liam Payne And His Fiancee Maya Henry Have Broken Up And She Addressed Pics Of Him Canoodling With Another Woman
I missed One Direction due to early-onset oldladydom, so I don’t know if Liam Payne was always The Bad One to Harry Styles’ The Pretty One and Zyan Malik’s The Sensitive One, but Liam’s recent track record with the ladies tells me he’s the bad boy of the group now even if he wasn’t before. Us Weekly reports that Liam, 28, and his on-again, off-again fiancee of two years, 22-year-old Maya Henry have broken up for good after pictures of Liam canoodling with another woman were published on Instagram. Liam’s rep tells Us that Maya and Liam broke up “over a month ago,” but it sounds like that was news to Maya who commented on the photos “I love all of the fans so much but please stop sending me these pictures of my fiancé wrapped around another woman,” further cementing Liam as the Scary Spice of One Direction.
Page Six has identified The Other Woman One as Instagram model Aliana Mawla, who posted the pictures on her Instagram Story which were then reposted by a One D fan account who incorrectly identified her as Maya, thus Maya’s vexation. Us Weekly reports:
Photos surfaced on Sunday, May 22, of an alleged Payne 28, snuggling up to a woman who Page Six has reported is Aliana Mawla. In the pics, the One Direction star can seemingly be seen embracing a woman from behind, along with a second black-and-white snapshot of the pair holding hands.
“I love all of the fans so much but please stop sending me these pictures of my fiancé wrapped around another woman,” Henry commented after being tagged by fans who had reposted the Mawla’s Instagram Story. “This is not me and it’s hard enough knowing this has happened without seeing it. Enough now.”
Here’s the fan post that Maya commented on. This definitely counts as a TC (technical canoodle) with an SE (steamy embrace) rising.
Maya and Liam got engaged in August 2020 and broke up briefly in June 2021 with Liam saying he’s “disappointed in myself that I keep on hurting people” and that he’s “just not been very good at relationships.” But the pair reunited in October of that year and hit the red carpet together. And in March, Liam took an opportunity to assure the press that he is the Reformed Bad Boy of the group telling People “we’re still here together, and we’re very, very happy at the moment. Probably the happiest we’ve been.” Well, I hope he’s happy now because Alina (who Page Six notes is followed on IG by Kanye‘s girlfriend Chaney Jones) is nobody’s side chick. For long. The Daily Mail reports that Alina and Liam have since gone public with their “romance.”
Liam Payne made his first public appearance with new girlfriend Aliana Mawla on Tuesday, weeks after breaking off his engagement to Texan model Maya Henry.
The former One Direction star was arm in arm with the attractive brunette, who bears a striking resemblance to his former fiancée, after arriving at Heathrow Airport that morning.
The new couple looked drained as they made their way across the terminal following an eventful flight from Los Angeles, during which a shirtless Liam had made the questionable decision to share a video of himself flexing his abs.
A source told the DM that “Maya’s comments referring to Liam as her fiancé are untrue and very misleading,” which, I suspect, if one were to pull an elaborate sting operation ala Coleen Rooney might prove the source to be none other than … Alina Mawla. Allegedly! Please don’t sue me, girl, trust me, neither of us has the time right now. Here they are at the airport where later “the pair struggled to keep their hands off each other while waiting for their luggage, with Liam throwing a protective arm across the pint-sized model’s shoulders as they mingled with fellow travellers.”
Sorry Maya but Alina took your man and there’s nothing you can do about it except go celebrate. You’re free! The Mail says that Maya and Liam were first photographed together when she was a 15-year-old One Direction fan. Liam has a 5-year-old son with 38-year-old Cheryl Cole and last dated Naomi Campbell. In 2019 Liam got rocked by bouncers after he tried bum rush a then 19-year-old Maya into a bar. So this is definitely for the best. Let Alina carry his baggage if she loves airports that much, you go enjoy your youth! As for the new one, she’s either a genius with an incredible flair for irony, or she’s hot. She’s definitely not both.
