Liam Payne seems to be moving on after his recent split from fiancée Maya Henry. On May 24, photos surfaced of the former One Direction singer walking arm-in-arm with model Aliana Mawla at London’s Heathrow Airport. Although Payne has yet to publicly confirm if the two are actually dating, he reportedly thanked photographers when they said he and Mawla look great together.
The photos of Payne and Mawla came just hours after People reported that he and Henry broke up a month ago for the second time. Neither has yet publicly addressed the split, but Henry commented on photos a fan posted via Instagram of Payne with another woman: “Love all the fans so much but s’ please stop sending me those photos of my fiancé wrapped around another woman.” she wrote on May 23. “It’s not me and it’s hard enough knowing it happened without seeing it. Enough now.”
Payne and Henry made their relationship Instagram official in September 2019 and got engaged the following summer. They briefly separated in June 2021, with the singer confirming their breakup on the “Le Diary of a CEO” podcast and saying he was “indeed” single. Two months later, however, Payne and Henry appeared to have reconciled after they were spotted leaving a yacht party together in St. Tropez. They also made a joint red carpet appearance at the world premiere of “Ron’s Gone Wrong” in London.
It’s unclear when and how Payne and Mawla first met, but they have yet to comment publicly on the status of their relationship. See more photos of the two to come.
