According to her rep, Aliana Mawla is “extremely protective of her personal life” with Liam Payne and would not “have put herself in a public relations” if the unfavorable reports were “real.”
Aliana Mawla has spoken out about the alarming charges of cheating in her new relationship with Liam Payne. The beauty’s representative told HollywoodLife EXCLUSIVELY that she’s “taken aback” by the allegations that the 28-year-old singer cheated on his ex-fiancee Maya Henry, 21, with her after photos of them surfaced online, and that she wouldn’t have “involved herself in” the public relationship if the allegations were true.
Relationship with Liam:
“The charges that have been made regarding a relationship with Liam while he was still engaged or involved with ex-fiancée have taken Aliana by surprise,” the statement stated. “Under no circumstances would Aliana have entered into a public relationship if the allegations were true. She is quite private about her personal life, and she has nothing more to say at this time except that she is very happy and does not want to discuss the subject further.”
Maya publicly remarked on images that looked to show the two of them cozily posing together, which can be seen below. Aliana’s rep’s comment comes after the model has been in the spotlight for being romantically linked to her. “I appreciate all of the support, but please stop sending me photos of my fiancé wrapped around another lady.” This isn’t me, and it’s difficult enough to know that something bad has happened without witnessing it. “Enough is enough,” she said on May 23 on social media.
It’s Unknown if Liam and Maya Were Still Dating:
It’s unknown if Liam and Maya were still dating when the images with Aliana were shot, but they were said to have split “almost a month ago” shortly after Maya’s comment went public. The former couple began dating in 2018 but didn’t declare their relationship until September of this year. They got engaged in August 2020 but divorced in June 2021, only to reconcile a few months later.
Liam was “upset” with the negative assumptions after the cheating claims surfaced, according to a source. “Liam told pals that he and Maya split up a long time ago, so it’s really not fair that he’s being painted as a cheater,” the source said EXCLUSIVELY to HollywoodLife. “He’s a sensitive guy, so this is difficult, but at the end of the day, his friends and family know the truth, and they know his heart is good.”
Aliana Mawla Responds to Liam Payne’s Cheating:
Aliana Mawla is denying reports that she got acquainted with Liam Payne when he was still married to his ex-fiancée Maya Henry after going public with her relationship with him.
Following the announcement of Liam Payne and fiancée Maya Henry’s split last week, the model/influencer insists she didn’t get connected with the former One Direction member until after the couple had broken up.
“The charges that have been made regarding a relationship with Liam while he was still engaged or involved with [his] previous fiancée have taken Aliana by surprise,” her rep said in a statement to E! News on May 29. “Under no circumstances would Aliana have entered into such a public relationship if the allegations were true.”
The statement went on from there. “She is very protective of her personal life and has nothing more to say at this time other than she is very pleased and does not wish to discuss this scenario moving ahead,” says the source.
A representative for Liam, 28, confirmed the divorce to E! News on May 23. The date of the breakup has not been revealed.
Maya made the news public after seeing photographs of what appeared to be Liam with his arms wrapped around another lady on social media. Maya, 21, was prompted to implore social media users to “please stop sending me these photographs of my fiancé wrapped around another woman” when a fan page re-posted the photos and tagged her.
