The couple met all the way back in 2008 when a 14-year-old Liam auditioned for X Factor. Cheryl, who was one of the judges, sent him through to Boot Camp and he was later cut out of the competition by Simon. They reunited at the 2015 X Factor final, where One Direction were performing. They were seen hugging during an ad break, which later made fans think this was the moment something happened between them.

In January 2016, Cheryl filed for divorce from her husband, Jean-Bernard, and soon after the couple were dating. On 22nd March 2017, Cheryl gave birth to their baby boy, Bear. The couple announced the birth on Instagram on the 25th of March.

In October 2017, Liam released his song Bedroom Floor, which he said was all about Cheryl trying to break up with him and him trying to hold on. He told The Sun, “There’s one song that is basically phone call that happened between me and her when she was about to let it go. This is a long time ago. And it’s basically me trying to cling on and say: ‘No, no, no it’s all going to work out, don’t worry about it, give it time.’

The two were also rumored to be facing trouble in the few months leading to their split. According to sources, Liam wanted to make it official and get married after the birth of their son in March 2017, but Cheryl refused to settle down with the 24 year old. A source told Daily Mail, “Liam is smitten with his little boy and wants things to work between him and Cheryl, so thought talk of marriage was a positive step. But she just doesn’t seem to be thinking in the same sort of way and has made it clear that’s not on the cards at the moment, which he saw as a real snub.
