Aliana Mawla has broken her silence regarding the allegations involving her and her boyfriend, Liam Payne. She has recently addressed the cheating claims, noting that she is “very taken back” by it.

Geo News reported that the assertions emerged in E! News after a rep for the personality spoke to them. As stated, “under no circumstances would [Mawla] have involved herself” in a relationship with the former One Direction member “if there was any truth to the comments that have been made.”

In the same statement provided by the camp of Payne’s new partner, it states that “she is very protective of her personal life.” It also says that she “has nothing more to say at the moment other than she is very happy,” adding that she “does not wish to discuss this situation moving forward.”

The cheating rumors surrounding Liam Payne seemingly began after a rep confirmed his split with Maya Henry earlier last week. As noted, the relationship ended over a month ago, although no details were shared before the public.

The news about the split made public following the model’s surprising comment on social media about a photo of her then-fiancé, wrapped around “another woman.”

E! News recalled that a fan page dedicated to the British artist posted the snaps on the platform and tagged Henry. This prompted the 21-year-old celebrity to break her silence and confirm that the woman in the photo was not her.

She wrote in the comment section, “ Please stop sending me these pictures of my fiancé wrapped around another woman.”

The following day, Liam Payne and Aliana Mawla made their first public appearance as a couple in the United Kingdom. Photos of the pair arriving at Heathrow Airport surfaced on media platforms, with Mail Online saying that they had an “eventful flight from Los Angeles.”

The same publication continued that the two personalities “struggled to keep their hands off each other” as they waited for their belongings. They, later on, met with a waiting friend, who gave Mawla a welcoming hug.

It is unclear how Liam Payne and Aliana Mawla met each other. It also remains unknown when their romance officially began.

As for the former One Direction member’s relationship with Maya Henry, their split, which reportedly occurred over a month ago, marked their second time to call off their engagement. The twosome first called it quits in June 2021, although they reunited two months later, according to Capital FM.

Henry and Payne first confirmed their romance in August 2019. They got engaged amid the pandemic, about a year after making their relationship public.
