PICTURE EXCLUSIVE: Liam Payne and Maya Henry confirm they’re BACK ON as they attend yacht party


Liam Payne and Maya Henry confirmed they have rekindled their romance on Tuesday, when they enjoyed a 4am stroll through St. Tropez together after attending a luxury yacht party.

The singer, 27, shocked fans when he announced the couple had split in June, but the pair have since reconciled, although Maya, 21, was not wearing the £3 million engagement ring Liam presented her with when he popped the question in August 2020.

Model Maya put on a busty display when she stepped out with the former One Direction hitmaker at the beginning of the week, slipping into a plunging pink Pucci dress.

It comes as Liam is said to have ‘won back’ his former fiancée Maya with a ‘romantic gesture’, two months after calling off their engagement.

A source close to the pair told MailOnline this month that Liam and Maya are so sure of their rekindled romance that they’ve moved back in together. 

The insider revealed: ‘Liam started to win Maya back after she returned from the UK and eventually succeeded after a romantic gesture.

‘His friends and family all love Maya because she’s such a healthy influence on him, so that probably contributed it. They realised that they couldn’t live without one another.’

The source also revealed that their wedding is still scheduled for next year. MailOnline contacted Liam and Maya’s representatives for comment at the time.

Meanwhile, Liam cut a typically trendy figure in a white T-shirt and navy trousers teamed with lace-up boots, while brunette beauty Maya added height to her frame in chic open-toe heels.

Arriving for the glitzy event with friends, Liam was rocking peroxide blond hair while Maya’s glossy tresses had been swept up into an immaculate bun.

The group hopped on board a small boat and were whisked across the water to the larger vessel where the party took place.

Liam, Maya and their friends did not return to shore until the early hours and all appeared in high spirits, with Liam and a male companion laughing as they strolled through the South of France.

After being on her feet all night, Maya gave her heels a rest, taking off her shoes and walking barefoot across the dock. 

Meanwhile, just 1km away from the couple, thousands of people have been evacuated from their homes and holiday accommodation near the French Riviera as wildfire raged through more than 6,000 acres of surrounding forests, with firefighters battling the flames as the latest of several wildfires swept through the Mediterranean region.

It is said that at least 22 people have suffered with smoke inhalation or minor fire-related injuries from the fire which began on Monday evening, with over 900 firefighters and 120 gendarmes tackling the blaze.

The singer shared a series of posts on his Instagram stories, before tagging his ex and then stating: ‘I love you.’

He 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. (sic)’

Confirming he was single, Liam said on the 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.’

The Strip That Down singer continued: ‘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.

WHOLE LOT OF (DATING) HISTORY: A LOOK BACK AT LIAM’S LOVES

Danielle Peazar (2010-2012) 

Liam met dancer Danielle when they both appeared on The X Factor in 2010 with the couple going on to date for two years. 

The pair enjoyed a very brief reconciliation the following year, but soon called it quits for good.   

In 2018, Danielle sparked rumours she was back in touch the singer after a fan asked Danielle if she and the singer kept in contact during an Instagram Q&A, to which she responded: ‘I’m gonna keep that between him and I.’

Sophia Smith (2013-2015) 

Liam and Sophia originally met when they were both in school, but didn’t date until 2013, splitting in October 2015. 

He told The Sun On Sunday at the time: ‘I’m absolutely devastated to have split with Sophia, but in order to do right by somebody, sometimes it’s better not to do what your heart wants, but to do what’s better for them.’

The split came as a shock to fans as just weeks before the boyband hunk admitted that the pair were talking about marriage.

In an interview with Attitude magazine, he said: ‘We have talked about marriage, but 22 seems a bit young for us. Sophia needs to go off and do what she wants to do.

‘I don’t want her to be one of those stay-at-home girlfriends who doesn’t really do much.’

 Cheryl (2015-2017) 

Liam’s most high-profile romance was with singer Cheryl, who is 10 years his senior.

The couple first met when Cheryl was 24 when a then 14-year-old Liam first auditioned for the X Factor back in 2008, but the pair’s romance is said to have started in December 2015 when they got reacquainted at the X Factor final.

Cheryl and Liam went public with their romance in February 2016 and welcomed son Bear in March 2017.

The couple went their separate ways in July 2018 following a two and a half year romance but have remained amicable co-parents to their son.

Cairo Dwek (2018) 

Liam enjoyed a summer romance with model Cairo, with their two-month relationship coming to an end in September 2018 after two months of dating.

The Bedroom Floor hitmaker confirmed their split when fans quizzed him on his relationship status – bizarrely beneath one of singer John Mayer’s live Instagram videos.

After John told fans he was single, Liam quickly shut down speculation adding: ‘I’m single too,’ followed by a wink emoji.

Naomi Campbell (2019)

Liam was linked Naomi, who is 23 years older than him, in 2019, with the couple said to have enjoyed a four-month fling that ended in April after Naomi got ‘bored’ of the singer.   

It began with a seemingly harmless flirtation on Instagram, liking and commenting on one another’s steamy posts.

Liam described her as ‘perfection in a person’, with her branding him ‘a beautiful soul’.

There were reports about Liam bragging about the couple’s ‘mind-blowing’ sex, but when Naomi was asked outright about the tryst on The Jonathan Ross Show she said the rumours were ‘humorous’. Any romance appeared to end shortly after this.

Maya Henry (2019-2021)

Liam revealed in June that he had called off his engagement to fiancée Maya, in order to ‘work on himself’.  

The couple confirmed their engagement in August 2020 after Liam popped the question during lockdown with a £3 million ring.  

The pair were first linked back in August 2018 shortly after Liam’s high-profile split from Cheryl. 

However, they first set eyes on each other three years earlier, when they were pictured together at a meet-and-greet event when One Direction fan Maya was 15.
