December 2019 - Liam opens up about his relationship with Maya

Liam makes his feelings for Maya clear, reportedly saying, "I’m really happy right now and things are good. Now that I’ve found someone who’s my best friend as well as my partner, it’s changed things for me.

"She’s just so relaxed about everything. Someone who’s got your back with everything. I don’t think I’ve experienced that before in someone, so it’s quite a wonder to watch."

February 2020 - Liam and Maya reportedly split

Less than a year after going public, reports begin to surface that Liam and Maya have split.

A source told The Sun: "things between Liam and Maya had been rocky recently and they eventually decided to call it a day.

"He was extremely busy at the end of last year and when he eventually stopped, they were both able to re-evaluate exactly what they want. They decided to go their separate ways but he isn’t moping and wants to put it behind him."

However, alternative reports claimed that the pair were still together, with insiders downplaying the rumours.

According to the Mail, a source said at the time: "Maya and Liam are definitely still a couple and are very happy together. Both have been taking time off social media lately and enjoying each other’s company away from the spotlight."

August 2020 - Liam and Maya get engaged

Despite split rumours, Liam and Maya are officially back on, confirming their engagement in August 2020 after it's thought Liam popped the question during lockdown.

The singer appeared on Good Morning America where he was congratulated on the news. "Thank you, we’re just really happy," he told hosts on the show. "The last week I’ve had a birthday, my son has gone to school for the first time today, so it feels like a lot of firsts for me actually, which is great!"

The couple headed out in London a week before Liam's GMA appearance, sparking engagement rumours after Maya was pictured wearing a stunning ring, said to be worth a huge £3 million (via Mail Online).

June 2021 - The couple call off their engagement and decide to split

Nine months after first confirming their engagement, the couple announced they've called it off and have decided to split.

At the time, Liam told Steven Barlett on the Diary of a CEO podcast, "I feel like more than anything at this point, I'm more disappointed in myself that I keep on hurting people.

"That annoys me. I've just not been very good at relationships. And I know what my pattern of things is with relationships at this point. I'm just not very good at them so I just need to work on myself before I put myself on to somebody else."

Discussing the reasons behind the split, Liam explained, "That's where I got to in my last relationship. I just wasn't giving a very good version of me anymore, that I didn't appreciate and I didn't like being. I can honestly say I feel better out of it.

"I didn't feel good doing what I did but it had to happen. Just a corny way to say it was the best for us both."

July 2021 - Fans think Liam is trying to win Maya back

Liam posts a series of cryptic messages on his Instagram Stories, with fans speculating that he's attempting to win Maya back.

Liam wrote, "Don't let someone go if you really want to love them even if you have to learn to love them through your own mistakes. Let your instinct tell you that you need them and keep them close we are always running out of time. We never gain it."

He followed up with two more Insta Stories, saying, "F**k Me I'm Wise," and, "I love you, we calm," before tagging Maya in another story alongside a praying hand emoji, with the latter later being deleted.

18 August 2021 - Liam and Maya are reportedly back together

E! News reports that Liam and Maya are back together, with a source telling the publication that the pair had "rekindled their relationship" in mid-July.

"They took time apart due to their busy schedules and having distance between them. They needed the break because they weren't communicating well," the insider said.

As for the wedding, the source added, "They are living together in England but aren't putting pressure on the wedding or engagement yet."
