Cheryl has hit out at The Sun journalist Dan Wooton, after he reported she and Liam Payne were on the rocks.

An article in the newspaper last week reported that the couple were headed to “split talks” and would be ending their relationship soon.

Despite putting on a united front at the BRITs last night, the publication reported this was just a “stunt” to help promote Liam’s new record.

But Cheryl was quick to stamp out any more rumours.

“Oh stop no one cares who’s been speculatively arguing or not in their relationships,” she wrote on Twitter.

“Use your platform to put something productive in your columns 🙏🏻 I opened a centre this week that could help thousands of youth!!!!

“..Oh and your “stunt” theories are just ludicrous and a bit weird,” she added.

The paper had reported today that the couple’s relationship was still “strained”, despite walking the red carpet together.

“Cheryl and Liam’s friends say things are not good between them and have made it clear their relationship will soon end,” a source told the publication.

“But with a single to promote Liam was not going to miss the opportunity, and having Cheryl with him gives him even more limelight.

“They are trying to work things out and want to be together for their son Bear’s first birthday next month. But things are very strained.”

Of course Dan responded to Cheryl, claiming her friends and colleagues need to stop talking if she wants her private life to remain private.
