Cheryl reveals she and ex-boyfriend Liam Payne still ‘love and care about each other’ as she finally opens up on relationship

It’s been almost a year since Cheryl split from her ex-boyfriend — and the father of her son, Bear — Liam Payne.

After keeping coy on her relationship with the former One Direction star, 35 year old Cheryl has now opened up on their love for each other.

Cheryl and Liam, 25, announced their split last July — 16 months after they welcomed their first child together.

Speaking to The Sun Online about her former flame, Cheryl said: “Things are great. I’m actually really happy that we can be the way we are.

“We love and care about each other a lot and we shared a child. It’s really important that we’re able to have a very healthy good relationship.

“We’re going to be in each other’s lives forever so we’ve got to figure it out and be grown-up about it.”

The former Girls Aloud singer also hit back at claims that her latest single Let You is about Liam, after fans claimed the model in the music video looks like the Strip That Down performer.

She exclaimed: “Have you seen him? It looks nothing like him. He’s got a tattoo — that’s about all they’ve got in common.

“There’s always speculation — it’s natural. It’s just a conclusion people would draw.

“Obviously you write about your own experiences but you’re writing it with other people as well.”

Cheryl referenced her split from Liam in an interview with Sunday Times Style in November.

She said: “So [Liam] wanted to settle down and have a family and not do the solo thing. Then we encouraged him to do that. And then it didn’t work out.

When the former The X Factor judge was asked if Liam realised that settling down and having a family may not have been what he wanted after all, Cheryl said: "You'll have to ask him that."
