Piers Morgan believes Cheryl Cole and Liam Payne should be more "honest" with their split statement
The talk show host feels none of the celebrity speeches issued when a couple splits are honest. He reasons that people don't split if they love each other so much!
Piers Morgan is not happy with the statements that were passed by Cheryl Cole and Liam Payne to announce their breakup. According to the Good Morning Britain host, the pair was not being honest with their fans when they decided to bring out a statement explaining their split. The pair announced their separation in a joint statement on Sunday (July 1) which they shared on social media.
“Cheryl and I are sad to announce that we are going our separate ways,” wrote Liam on his Twitter. “It’s been a tough decision for us to make.” Despite the split, the couple has decided to keep their son, Bear their number one priority. “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," the statement continued. At the same time, Cheryl posted a similar message on her Twitter account.
Piers was disappointed with the statement as he believes that the pair did not reveal their true feelings in it. He could not understand how someone could have love for each other but still not be together. "It’s always weird when they say we have so much love for each other," he said on his show. "Well if you love each other that much why you are splitting up for?” In fact, Piers believe none of the celebrities have been honest in their breakup statements.
"I always feel these speeches or statements should be more honest," he said. “‘We can’t stand the sight of each other’, I mean… if it’s two years and you split up it’s because you just don’t like each other isn’t it?” Piers later added: “Do you think people battle it out enough?” Cheryl and Liam went public with their relationship in 2015. The two met each other on the sets of X Factor U.K. in 2008. Cheryl was a judge on the show while Liam was a contestant.
For a long time there had been rumors about the couple parting ways but time and again they shut it down. The two were spotted supporting each other on several occasions and multiple times the pair commented on the relationship suggesting everything was fine. Previous reports from the tabloid had suggested that the distance between the pair was becoming a growing concern in their relationship.
Despite the split, the pair has never stopped loving or keeping their baby as their priority. In November 2016, the pair confirmed they were expecting their first child. But it wasn't until February 2017 that the pair officially announced the news. Cheryl showed off her growing baby bump in a photo shoot for L’Oreal and The Prince’s Trust. Wearing a long black dress, Cheryl beamed with happiness as she cradled her baby bump.
