One Direction's Liam Payne Single and Ready to Mingle

Shut it down… Another relationship in the public eye has come to pass.

One Direction’s Liam Payne and his longtime girlfriend Danielle Peazer have called it quits.

Friends of the UK singer spoke with the UK’s Mirror, about what caused the split.

According to the account, Twitter hate was not the source of the relationship troubles, but instead just plain ol’ fashioned he didn’t have enough time for her…

“They have split in the last few days because it has been more and more difficult to keep the relationship going with Liam spending more and more time away,” the source said.

The friend added, "He has hardly been able to see Danielle in recent months and the band have a world tour next year so it was only going to get harder.”

Liam and Danielle were last spotted together on Tuesday in what can only be assumed to be moments before the break up actually went down.

The couple was seen walking together, side-by-side, at Heathrow Airport in the UK. While Liam looked a tad frazzled by paps, the couple seemed happy as they held hands and made their way to a waiting car.

Even with the sad update, the couple reportedly parted ways amicably.

“They ended things but Liam hopes they have left on good terms. She was the first real love of his life," a source said.

Neither side of the couple has yet to address the split on Twitter…

Now that she isn’t attached to their dream boyfriend, Danielle will likely get a break from Directioner social media attacks aiming for the ex’s jugular… Ahhh, fan love!
