LIAM Payne said he "keeps on hurting people" as he revealed his shock split from fiancée Maya Henry.
The singer has vowed to work on himself in light of the separation, which he confirmed on The Diary of a CEO podcast.
Liam only proposed to Maya 10 months ago and is now single once again.
The 27-year-old star dropped the bombshell news during a podcast appearance – also revealing he's quit drinking.
The One Direction singer referred to 21-year-old Maya as his "partner at the time of lockdown".
Host Steven Bartlett then clarified: "Does this mean…"
Liam replied: "I am indeed."
Further pushing for confirmation, Steve asked directly: "You're single?"
Liam simply replied: "Yeah."
The hunk said he'd noticed a pattern to his failed relationships and needed to change it in the future.
He said: "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. That's what happened with my last relationship.
"I just wan't giving a very good version of me anymore. I feel better out of it. I don't feel good doing what I did but it had to happen. Just a corny way of saying it was the best for both of us. I hope she's happy."
When asked if he'd been drinking in lockdown, the Bedroom Floor singer replied: "No, I’ve been sober just over a month now, I think it is."
The star proposed to Maya with a £3million diamond ring in August 2020 after two years of dating.
He and the Texan-born beauty were first linked in August 2018 – shortly after Liam split from Cheryl, who he shares four-year-old son Bear with.
It was previously revealed that he and Maya first met when she was a 15-year-old One Direction fan who'd attended a meet-and-greet event.
As a new dad, Liam took the romance slowly and did not address his relationship status until September of the following year, where he appeared to defend their first encounter as he told Capital FM's Roman Kemp: "We’re fairly happy at the moment.
"I’m just past the point of where I’m bothered or not. It’s not worth my happiness; I’d just rather go out and do what I want. I’ve got nothing to hide."
That same month, he made the relationship Instagram official with a sweet snap of himself and Maya laughing together.
He gushed in the caption at the time: "Sometimes I don’t recognise this happy guy… Sure glad you brought him back though."
In February 2020, The Sun revealed that he and Maya had split but they quickly got back together as the world was plunged into lockdown.
In addition to Cheryl, Liam has previously dated influencer Sophia Smith, dancer Danielle Peazer, and supermodel Naomi Campbell.
