MUSIC- Singer Cheryl has requested fans not to blame her mother for her split with former one Direction star Liam Payne.

The couple parted ways on Sunday after being together for more than two years. They have a son named Bear who was born in March last year.

As soon as the news of their break up became public, tabloids started blaming Cheryl’s mother Joan for the couple’s split.

Hitting back, Cheryl tweeted, “I don't know why they involve her in stories about me. She is a soft and kind woman who doesn't deserve to be dragged into something that has nothing whatsoever to do with her.”

Cheryl and Liam first met back in 2008, when Liam was 14 and auditioning on The X Factor. They got together in 2016 after Cheryl divorced French restaurateur Jean-Bernard Fernandez-Versini.
