Newly single Maya Henry joins Chantel Jeffries for lunch in LA… following split from Liam Payne

Liam Payne confirmed he’d called off their engagement, saying he needed to ‘work on himself,’ during a recent podcast interview.

And on Thursday, Maya Henry, 21, looked effortlessly chic in a maxi dress as she joined Chantel Jeffries, 28, for lunch at The Ivy in West Hollywood, LA.

The newly single model oozed elegance in her tiered frock as she and her DJ pal teamed up with former TOWIE star Vas J Morgan, 32, for the gettogether.

Her pal Chantel slipped into a beige check print sleeveless top and coordinating mini skirt for the outing, keeping comfortable in plain white trainers.

However, Maya boosted her model height with a pair of animal print strappy platforms and shielded her eyes with shades.  

The brunette beauty opted for delicate jewellery, but had one significant accessory missing: the dazzling engagement ring she was given by ex-fiancé Liam when he popped the question last summer. 

Liam shocked fans earlier this month when he announced he had called off their engagement as he needed to ‘work on himself’.

Speaking to Steven Barlett on the Diary of a CEO podcast he confirmed he was a single man but said that he felt upset at ‘hurting’ Maya.  

The pair were first linked back in August 2018 shortly after Liam’s high-profile split from Cheryl, 37, with whom he shares son Bear, three.   

Confirming that he is now single, Liam said on the podcast: ‘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 where I got to in my last relationship. I just wasn’t giving a very good version of me anymore, that I didn’t appreciate and I didn’t like being. I can honestly say I feel better out of it.

‘I didn’t feel good doing what I did but it had to happen. Just a corny way to say it was the best for us both.’  

Liam and Maya’s split came as a shock to their fans, as although the pair haven’t been photographed together since September 2020, the couple still follow each other on Instagram and have kept their pictures up with each other. 

The singer popped the question to Maya last year with a dazzling diamond ring that set him back an eye-watering £3 million.

MailOnline exclusively broke the news of their engagement in August, the singer then confirmed he had popped the question over the first lockdown. 

The pair were first linked back in August 2018 shortly after Liam split from Cheryl, but first set eyes on each other three years earlier, when they were pictured together at a meet-and-greet event when One Direction fan Maya was 15. 

It wasn’t until September 2019 that Liam publicly spoke about his blossoming romance, while promoting his single Stack It Up.

Prior to dating Maya he is said to have enjoyed a four-month whirlwind romance with supermodel Naomi Campbell, which ended in April 2019.

He said during an appearance on Capital Breakfast with 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, Liam made things Instagram official, when he took to the image-sharing platform to upload a heartwarming snap of him laughing and hugging Maya.

Captioning the snap, he wrote: ‘Sometimes I don’t recognise this happy guy… sure glad you brought him back though.

‘This has been the most amazing release week to date! Massive thank you to all my team for helping setting it all up and making it run smooth.

‘Then last but not least this one @maya_henry for always keeping the biggest smile on my face through all the stress and making me realise how perfect my life really is. Love you all let’s stack this sh** up.’ 

Brunette beauty Maya wrote in response: ‘So proud of you and so glad we can be happy together. Stack it up biisshhh.’ [sic]

Model Maya is the daughter of Thomas J. Henry – a Texan lawyer who amassed his wealth running his own personal injury firm.  

The company is described on its website as ‘one of the biggest plaintiff’s firms in Texas’, with Maya the heiress to the multi-million pound fortune.

The beauty has still been reaping the benefits of her father’s success during her youth – with her Quinceañera, the Spanish coming of age party at 15 years old, costing a whopping £4million.

Despite her privileged background, the beauty is driven to succeed on her own – having revealed her desire to be a human rights lawyer ‘like Amal Clooney’ to the Business Insider.

Not only successful in the classroom, with her favourite subject algebra, the brunette is also interested in fitness, and was a competitive tennis player in her youth. 

She even set up her own charity, Maya’s Corner, as a child, which provides school supplies and now education opportunities to underprivileged kids across the US.

Liam’s most high-profile romance was with singer Cheryl, who is 10 years his senior.  

The pair’s romance is said to have started in December 2015 when they got reacquainted at the X Factor final, which he attended with Harry, Louis and Niall.

Cheryl and Liam went public with their romance in February 2016 after being spotted together in a supermarket in Guildford, Surrey – welcoming son Bear in March 2017.

They went their separate ways in July 2018 following a two and a half year romance, and are said to have remained civil since their split, with the hunk even insisting he doesn’t know what he and son Bear would do without single Cheryl in a sweet Mother’s Day post. 

Back in April, Liam also spoke about his strong bond with his ex, stating: ‘Cheryl is literally the best person to co-parent with. No stress involved. It’s very, very relaxed, and we spend a lot of time on FaceTime.

‘And it’s been really lovely, and I’m closer to them than I’ve ever been before, actually, which is really, really nice.

‘But bedtime FaceTime can go really well sometimes. Or I bought him some toys yesterday that I showed them on the FaceTime and it was like I had to go and travel over and hand the toys over the fence!’

WHOLE LOT OF (DATING) HISTORY: A LOOK BACK AT LIAM’S LOVES

Danielle Peazar (2010-2012) 

Liam met dancer Danielle when they both appeared on The X Factor in 2010 with the couple going on to date for two years. 

The pair enjoyed a very brief reconciliation the following year, but soon called it quits for good.   

In 2018, Danielle sparked rumours she was back in touch the singer after a fan asked Danielle if she and the singer kept in contact during an Instagram Q&A, to which she responded: ‘I’m gonna keep that between him and I.’

Sophia Smith (2013-2015) 

Liam and Sophia originally met when they were both in school, but didn’t date until 2013, splitting in October 2015. 

He told The Sun On Sunday at the time: ‘I’m absolutely devastated to have split with Sophia, but in order to do right by somebody, sometimes it’s better not to do what your heart wants, but to do what’s better for them.’

The split came as a shock to fans as just weeks before the boyband hunk admitted that the pair were talking about marriage.

In an interview with Attitude magazine, he said: ‘We have talked about marriage, but 22 seems a bit young for us. Sophia needs to go off and do what she wants to do.

‘I don’t want her to be one of those stay-at-home girlfriends who doesn’t really do much.’

 Cheryl (2015-2017) 

Liam’s most high-profile romance was with singer Cheryl, who is 10 years his senior.

The couple first met when Cheryl was 24 when a then 14-year-old Liam first auditioned for the X Factor back in 2008, but the pair’s romance is said to have started in December 2015 when they got reacquainted at the X Factor final.

Cheryl and Liam went public with their romance in February 2016 and welcomed son Bear in March 2017.

The couple went their separate ways in July 2018 following a two and a half year romance but have remained amicable co-parents to their son.

Cairo Dwek (2018) 

Liam enjoyed a summer romance with model Cairo, with their two-month relationship coming to an end in September 2018 after two months of dating.

The Bedroom Floor hitmaker confirmed their split when fans quizzed him on his relationship status – bizarrely beneath one of singer John Mayer’s live Instagram videos.

After John told fans he was single, Liam quickly shut down speculation adding: ‘I’m single too,’ followed by a wink emoji.

Naomi Campbell (2019)

Liam was linked Naomi, who is 23 years older than him, in 2019, with the couple said to have enjoyed a four-month fling that ended in April after Naomi got ‘bored’ of the singer.   

It began with a seemingly harmless flirtation on Instagram, liking and commenting on one another’s steamy posts.

Liam described her as ‘perfection in a person’, with her branding him ‘a beautiful soul’.

There were reports about Liam bragging about the couple’s ‘mind-blowing’ sex, but when Naomi was asked outright about the tryst on The Jonathan Ross Show she said the rumours were ‘humorous’. Any romance appeared to end shortly after this.

Maya Henry (2019-2021)

Liam revealed in June that he had called off his engagement to fiancée Maya, in order to ‘work on himself’.  

The couple confirmed their engagement in August 2020 after Liam popped the question during lockdown with a £3 million ring.  

The pair were first linked back in August 2018 shortly after Liam’s high-profile split from Cheryl. 

However, they first set eyes on each other three years earlier, when they were pictured together at a meet-and-greet event when One Direction fan Maya was 15.
