Cheryl Cole Steps Out After Announcing Liam Payne Split
Unfazed. Cheryl Cole has stepped out for the first time since announcing that she and Liam Payne have split after more than two years of dating.The “Call My Name” singer, 35, smiled for cameras while attending Simon Cowell‘s Syco Summer Party in London on Monday, July 9. She wore an orange off-the-shoulder dress with gold strappy shoes, which coordinated with her earrings.
Cole and the former One Director singer, 24, got together years after meeting on the set of The X Factor in 2008. They went public with their romance in February 2016 and welcomed son Bear, now 13 months, in March 2017.The former Girls Aloud singer, however, would go on to announce their breakup on July 1 — a day after her birthday. “We are sad to announce that we are going our separate ways. It’s been a tough decision for us to make. We still have so much love for each other as a family. Bear is our world and we ask that you respect his privacy as we navigate our way through this together,” she tweeted. Payne later shared a tweet that echoed Cole’s statement.
