Liam Payne has brushed off rumours that his romance with Cheryl is on the outs by praising her on Instagram.

Commenting on her Instagram post after she launched Cheryl’s Trust Centre, which opened in Newcastle this week in joint with the Prince’s Trust, worth £2 million, Liam wrote: ‘Very proud of you!

‘how you find the time to do this ill never know (sic). over many years you’ve put all this together and put your heart into such a great cause! I hope one day I can do the same (sic).’

Cheryl’s former Girls Aloud pal Nicola Roberts also commented: ‘That’s a beautiful thing you have been chipping away at and achieved. So proud of you.’

Only a week ago Cheryl and Liam sparked engagement rumours, when Cheryl was spotted with a sparkler on her ring finger while meeting Prince Charles.

But now there’s talk that Liam has gone so far as to ‘seek financial advice’ on how to protect the massive fortune he earned through his days in One Direction as the pair are looking to end their relationship.

The pair welcomed their son Bear in March 2017.
