Liam Payne 'Calls In Divorce Lawyers Over Cheryl Tweedy Split'
Liam Payne and Cheryl Tweedy's relationship is reportedly on the rocks, with their close pals fearing that things could be over for good.
And now it has been claimed that Liam, 24, has called in divorce lawyers to seek legal advice on how he can protect his £54 million fortune if he does split from the Girls Aloud pop star.
34-year-old Cheryl is estimated to have a fortune of £20 million.
While the couple are not married, they do have an 11-month-old son together, Bear, and share a £5.1 million mansion in Surrey.
A source 'close to the couple' told The Sun: "Liam has sought some legal advice but he still wants to make it work."
The insider also added: "With a young son and a number of assets between them there is more to breaking up than just parting ways.
"He hopes it doesn't come to it but he's just being careful."
This comes after sources claimed that their relationship may have 'ended sooner' if it wasn't for their baby boy.
Their romance is reportedly 'under strain' because the former One Direction pop star has been spending lots of nights away from their family home due to his work schedule.
It was also claimed that Cheryl has been staying at home with their baby boy, and Liam was going to showbiz events, meaning the pair found it hard to have quality time together.
