Geordie pop royalty and TV personality, Cheryl Tweedy has found herself at the centre of a social media discussion recently, and according to a source, “wants to have her say”.

According to Heat Magazine, the 39-year-old singer from Newcastle is devastated to hear she has received criticism from the public regarding her relationship with One Direction star Liam Payne, despite the pair splitting up in 2018.

Cheryl and Liam met on The X Factor in 2008, when a 14-year-old Liam Payne auditioned and a 23-year-old Cheryl was on the judging panel.

However, the pair did not begin a romantic relationship until 2016. The couple went on to welcome a child together, 6-year-old son Bear, before calling time on their relationship in 2018.

Following the news of Phillip Schofield’s affair with a young runner on This Morning, the public have discussed other celebrity couples with an age gap on social media - with Cheryl and Liam’s two-year relationship brought into the conversation.

According to Heat Magazine, a source told them: “Cheryl fears this is going to blow it all up for her, because no one wants to be associated with anything like that.

“She’d love nothing more than to have her say, but she knows it never comes out that way. For Cheryl, the 14-year-old thing is so twisted, and infuriating – she was married to [first husband] Ashley [Cole] at the time, and there was absolutely no link with Liam there at all. When they finally did get together, that’s a different story and she never thought about the ten-year age gap.”
