The One Direction star was speaking about his pregnant girlfriend in an interview with Rollercoaster magazine and spoke about her career in the past tense.
“Her solo career was amazing,” Liam said. “She’s been in the industry for 14 years now.”
Many Cheryl fans took that to mean her music career is something in the past.
“Liam’s right to say he’s “still learning”, cuz I doubt Cheryl is thrilled to hear her solo career “was” amazing (sic),” tweeted one fan.
“Lol at Liam talking about Cheryl’s solo career in the past tense,” another person wrote.
“I hope he doesn’t think she’s going to become a housewife now,’ tweeted another fan.
Cheryl might be putting her career in the back burner right now to focus on motherhood, but it was claimed that she was planning on bringing out music in the future.
Don’t give up hope just yet Cheryl fans.
In the mean time, she’s supporting Liam as he gears up to embark on his solo effort.
“She fully supports me,” Liam said. “We’re super happy. It’s a very personal, precious time for us. I’m still learning. I’m only 23.”
