Ever since the news of their affair became public the gossip tabloids haven’t been silent. The affair is pretty odd and something nobody ever imagined. Cheryl, an anorexic victim of two failed marriages and ten years older than Liam, is bearing the brunt of being a cougar. The former Girls Aloud member was first married to footballer Ashley Cole. They divorced in 2010 after his cheating scandal leaked. In 2014 Cheryl married French businessman Jean-Bernard Fernandez-Versini after only three months of courtship. The couple separated in 2015.
This is also Liam’s third public affair; he was first romantically involved with X Factor dancer Danielle Peazer for over three years before splitting in mid 2013. The One Direction member then dated his childhood friend Sophia Smith for two years. In mid 2015, they broke up.
Liam and Cheryl’s affair is odd for many reasons. She is ten years older than him, and the relationship is receiving more flak than appreciation. Professionally too, they are no match. Liam is member of the biggest boy band in the world – One Direction, while Cheryl’s career hasn’t been that flourishing. The singer’s music career has been flat for the past few years. Cheryl’s career out of the U.K. is little known too. Last year she judged X Factor UK only to draw attention to her diminishing figure.
The odd affair could very well be a publicity stunt. One Direction is currently on a temporary break for 18 months and Liam has nothing considerable on his plate while Cheryl has been nursing her broken heart and could be just enjoying a hot romance with the young artist. It wouldn’t be surprising if they break up next month.
