It's all over for Liam Payne and Cheryl Cole! Just one day after the Girls Aloud singer's 35th birthday, the One Direction songster has announced that he has broken up with his girlfriend after more than two years of dating.

The 24-year-old singer took to Twitter on Sunday, July 1 to make the duo's split announcement. He wrote in the tweet,

Cheryl and I are sad to announce that we are going our separate ways. It's been a tough decision for us to make. We still have so much love for each other as a family. Bear is our world and we ask that you respect his privacy as we navigate our way through this together.

Here's the heartfelt tweet, check it out.

Cheryl also shared an almost-identical statement regarding her split with his boyfriend via Twitter.

She wrote,

We are sad to announce that we are going our separate ways. It's been a tough decision for us to make. We still have so much love for each other as a family. Bear is our world and we ask that you respect his privacy as we navigate our way through this together.

Check it out.

This comes after months of speculation that the Liam and Cheryl were headed to end the relationship. The former couple was not married, however, they welcomed a son named Bear (born in March 2017).

Liam and Cheryl, who started an affair in 2015 after meeting for the first time while Liam had an auditioned for The X Factor in 2008, had been surrounded by multiple infidelity and breakup rumors in recent months.

Admitting that the pair had ups and downs, in March, the Strip That Down crooner addressed the split reports.

He said in a cover story for London’s ES Magazine,

The funniest thing was a week before we were getting married. The next week we’re splitting up. And the thing for me is, I just like to think we’re somewhere in the middle. You know, we have our struggles — like, of course I’m not gonna sit here and say that everything’s absolutely fine and dandy, because of course you go through different things, and that’s what a relationship is. But we go through them together as a family and that’s the most important thing for me.

Additionally, in the following month, Cheryl shut down cheating rumors. She took to Instagram on March 30 to shut down a suggestion that Liam had acted inappropriately with one of his dancers.

She wrote at the time,

I usually don’t bother myself to respond to stupid articles. But in my silence they hold the pen. This is a stupid article, clutching at very small straws. But I can’t ignore this story involving an innocent dancer colleague of Liam’s who has a fiancé, and dragging them into this desperate attempt to try to cause problems between Liam and I. Nor do I understand the daily onslaught of stories.
