Maya Henry dines out in London as defiant model moves on from abrupt split with Liam Payne

The familiar presence of Liam Payne was notably absent on Thursday evening as newly single Maya Henry did her best to enjoy another social engagement without her former fiancé.

The Texan model caught the eye as she exited the London Mayfair branch of the popular Japanese restaurant chain Nobu following a dinner date with friends.

Maya, 21, is understood to be staying in the English capital following her abrupt separation from One Direction star Liam, but she was alone as she made her way onto Park Lane following her latest public appearance.

The young brunette looked stunning in a plunging ivory blouse and high-slung black trousers as she prepared for the journey home.

She added to a sophisticated ensemble with black strappy heels, while make-up selected from a soft color palette drew attention to her naturally pretty features.

Maya is said to be reeling from the collapse of her engagement to Liam, 28, who has seamlessly moved on with lookalike social media influencer Aliana Mawla.

However the singer is said to be wary of the furore surrounding their separation – and his rapidly developing new romance with the Florida based Aliana.

A source told The Sun: ‘None of this is what Liam wanted and it’s all becoming very public and rather messy.

‘He is hoping he and Maya can now just go their separate ways. Those around him are concerned she might speak out about their relationship – and given how angry she is about their break up, which is less than ideal. ‘

A friend of the model recently denied the former couple split a month ago, claiming Liam’s new relationship had come as a shock to Maya – who only became aware of it after spotting pictures of them together on social media.

A source told The Mirror: ‘This is such a blow for Maya, she’s making arrangements to get her belongings out of his house so she can move on and forget they were ever together.

‘To say you never know someone is understatement. They were engaged and he has shown her zero respect. She’s now thinking about her next steps and building a new life without Liam. ‘

MailOnline exclusively confirmed that Liam and Maya separated after previously calling off their engagement in June 2021 – only to rekindle their romance two months later.

In an interview with People, Liam recently admitted that the couple ‘went through a lot’ in lockdown but have worked through their challenges.

He detailed: ‘I think we went through a lot in COVID. I feel like we’ve come out the other side of it a bit stronger.

‘Most couples who have been married for years struggled, right? So, I mean, we’re still really happy to be here together today. ‘
