'I’m more disappointed in myself that I keep on hurting people,' says Liam Payne

Liam Payne confirmed that he and model Maya Henry have broken up, nine months after they first announced their engagement. 

In an episode of the podcast The Diary of a CEO published on Monday, June 7, Liam confirmed that he is no longer in a relationship.

“I feel like more than anything at this point, I’m more disappointed in myself that I keep on hurting people,” he said. 

The 27-year-old singer further explained that he’s aware that he needs to “sort” himself out before he enters another romantic commitment. “I’ve just not been very good at relationships. I know what my pattern of things is with relationships… so I just need to work on myself before I put myself on to somebody else,” he said. 

“I feel like that’s where I got to in my last relationship. I just wasn’t giving a very good version of me anymore, that I didn’t appreciate and I didn’t like being.” 

Liam said that while he doesn’t feel great about the breakup, he knows that it was the right thing to do. “I can honestly say that I feel better out of it. I didn’t feel good that I did what I did but it had to happen,” he said. 

“I know that’s the corniest way, saying ‘That’s what’s best for both of us.’ But it just feels like that,” he said, adding that he still hopes for Maya’s happiness. 

He got engaged to the 20-year-old model in August 2020. They were first linked in August 2018 but only went public with their relationship in September 2019. 

Liam has a 4-year-old son named Bear Grey with singer and former X-Factor UK judge Cheryl Cole, 37. Liam and Cheryl broke up in July 2018. Rappler.com
