Liam Payne has revealed Cheryl almost ended their relationship.
The former One Direction singer was devastated when the pop star rung him up to voice her concerns about their romance shortly after they started dating, but he was determined not to give up without a fight and “clung on” to her by reassuring her everything was going to be OK.
Speaking to The Sun newspaper, he said: “There’s one song [on his debut solo album] that is basically a 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.”
But luckily, despite their 10-year age gap initially raising a few eyebrows, the pair have managed to stay together and now have a two-month-old son called Bear between them.
