LOS ANGELES: Singer Cheryl has responded to rumours suggesting that her mother was behind her split with former One Direction member Liam Payne.

Cheryl and Payne, parents to one-year-old son Bear, confirmed their split on Twitter on June 1 after two years of dating.

The next day, Cheryl addressed the rumours about her mother on the micro-blogging site.

"I hate responding to stuff especially at such difficult times but I cannot sit here and listen to such nasty, false articles regarding my mother. I don't know why they involve her in stories about me. I can assure you she has absolutely nothing to do with any of it," the 35-year-old singer tweeted.

"I am a grown woman who is capable of dealing with my own life. She is a soft and kind woman who doesn't deserve to be dragged into something that has nothing whatsoever to do with her," she added.

Cheryl and Payne first met in 2008, when 14-year-old Payne was auditioning on the "X Factor".

They began dating in 2016 after Cheryl's divorce from French restaurateur Jean-Bernard Fernandez-Versini.
