Liam and Maya’s appearance comes after the singer hit back at claims his girlfriend was just 17 when they first started dating.

There has been speculation over the true age of the model which has been said to be both 18 and 19.

The former One Direction singer spoke out after a twitter thread claimed the couple began dating when Maya was 17 and that she is still in high school.

A twitter user wrote: ‘Every article about Liam’s girlfriend says she’s 19 when she’s actually 18.

‘This is intentional because when fabricating this ridiculous PR campaign for her they said that they’ve been together for a year, which would mean that Liam was dating a 17 y/o. She’s a senior in HS.’

Liam quickly responded to the tweet and insisted it was untrue, writing: ’19 don’t believe everything you read on the internet.’
