Liam Payne’s closest pal has stepped forward in his defence after cheating allegations started making rounds on the internet.
For those unversed, the accusations came as a result of Payne’s growing closeness with Instagram model Aliana Mawla.
However, friends allege the former One Direction singer broke up with former flame Maya Henry “a while ago” and even called off their engagement “so it’s really not fair that he’s being made to look like a cheater.”
The friend made this admission to HollywoodLife and was quoted saying, “He’s a sensitive guy so of course, this is upsetting but at the end of the day the people in his life know that truth and know his heart is good.”
For those unversed, no news of the split has been made public, but the singer was spotted walking hand-in-hand with the Instagram star at Heathrow Airport in London on May 24th.
The model also showed up in Liam’s video collaboration with J Baldvin, titled Familiar.
However, that is not the sole culprit behind cheating allegations, a now-deleted comment on Instagram fanned the flame where she admitted, “I love all of the fans so much but please stop sending me these pictures of my fiancé wrapped around another woman.”
“This is not me and it’s hard enough knowing this has happened without seeing it. Enough now.”
