One Direction star Liam Payne has canceled his engagement to model Maya Henry. The news comes just under a year since they unveiled their commitment in August 2020. The 27-year-old singer confirmed in a virtual appearance on the podium of the newspaper’s CEO that she was alone now.
Payne said he was “disappointed” with himself for “hurting people,” Entertainment Weekly reported. “I feel more than anything at the moment, I’m disappointed with myself because I keep hurting people. That bothers me. I’ve not been very good at relationships,” he said.
“And I know what my relationship model is, I feel it right now. I’m not very good at these, so I have to work on myself before I can put it on someone else. And I feel like I got there in my last relationship, ”he added.
Payne declined to disclose the exact reason for his breakup with 20-year-old Henry, but said he felt “he was no longer giving (himself) a very good version.” “Actually, I can say I feel better. I didn’t feel good about doing what I did, but it had to happen. I know that’s the most common way to say it’s been the best for both of us … but it feels that way, ”the singer said.
Payne and Henry premiered in August 2018 and in 2019 confirmed their relationship. Payne was associated with singer Cheryl “Girls Aloud” between 2016 and 2018. They share a son who was born in March 2017.
