Photos of engaged 'One Direction' singer Liam Payne getting intimate with model Aliana Mawla appeared on Instagram Sunday night, May 22 via the latter's Instagram story. Payne embraced Mawla from behind in a close-up selfie, and their hands were entwined.

As the photos quickly went viral, Payne's fiancee Maya Henry wrote, "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." According to the Daily Mail, Payne, 28, and Henry, 22, split up in April 2022 after putting off their engagement in June 2021, only to reunite the following month.

Payne spoke highly of his restored romance with the Texas native as recently as March, telling People they were still engaged. With Henry by his side, he added, "She's still my fiancee. We're still here together, and we're very, very happy at the moment. Probably the happiest we've been."

"I think we went through a lot in COVID," he continued. "I feel like we've come out the other side of it a bit stronger." Payne condemned himself when he and Henry canceled their 10-month engagement last summer. He added on the 'Diary of a CEO' podcast at the time, "I'm more disappointed in myself that I keep on hurting people," adding that he has "just not been very good at relationships."

In August 2020, the British singer proposed to Henry with a ring estimated to be worth more than $4 million. They first became romantically linked in 2018, shortly after he divorced Cheryl Cole, with whom he has a 5-year-old son named Bear. Payne and Henry acknowledged their romance in September 2019, but have had numerous breakdowns since then.

Fans have been commenting on Mawla's Instagram posts since the photograph surfaced, wondering what is going on. Payne and Mawla have yet to make a public statement on the incident.
