Liam Payne has hinted that getting up, close and personal with Rita Ora on-stage didnt help his relationship with Cheryl.
The steamy song For You was released for the 50 Shades Of Grey soundtrack so of course they had to get close and personal when they sung it.
Speaking to Closer, the 26-year-old said: [My duet with Rita] didnt do very much for my personal life. But it did a lot for… yeah no, it was good.
The duet came out in January 2018, several months before Liam and Cheryl – who share two-year-old son Bear together – split in July.
A month after the couple split Liam and Rita were seen getting close at a party which fuelled rumours of a romance.
I love her, shes really great and super, super fun to work with. Out of all my collaborations, Id say shes one of my favourites, Liam said.
However, the Strip That Down singer is now dating Maya Henry so any speculations of Rita and him can be thrown right out the window.
And he spoke about the biggest difference between life with the 19-year-old, and his ex – with whom he shares son Bear.
In a candid chat about their romance, he explained: Shes awesome. Its got to the point with my life where Im like, screw this – its not worth my happiness.
The difference with her is shes so relaxed that it helps me relax in a situation.
Liam and Cheryl were always extremely private with their relationship for the sake of their son, but his new relationship has him packing on the PDA everywhere.
The smitten pair enjoyed a romantic meal for two at Oak10 Kitchen in Marylebone, London on Friday night and they looked more loved-up than ever.
After laughing at something on Mayas phone, the pair were then seen sharing sweet kisses with each other inside and again standing outside the fancy restaurant.
Must be nice.
