Liam Payne and Cheryl Cole’s son Bear turned a year old last week, amid rampant rumors the couple was close to splitting up to the point where Liam finally felt compelled to address them.
Rather than sugar coat things he decided to be honest, but make it clear that they are still together.
“We have our struggles,” Liam told The Evening Standard. “I’m not gonna sit here and say that everything’s absolutely fine and dandy, because of course you go through different things. That’s what a relationship is.”
“There was always going to be a little bit of tenseness,” he says. “But tell me a relationship in the world that doesn’t go through a spot like that?”
One week tabloid reports say “We’re getting married. The next we’re splitting up,” Liam says. “I’d like to think we’re somewhere in the middle.”
