In addition to the main house, Liam’s property also includes two large guest houses and a guard house for security personnel, which together with state-of-the-art security systems make the pad the perfect abode. for any star loving privacy.

The property, a short drive from the sandy beaches of Malibu, features beautiful gardens of oak and sycamore trees, as well as a resort-style pool and spa.

An ‘outdoor lounge’ with a kitchen and barbecue area is the perfect place to relax after a quick dip, while a home theater and games room, complete with pool table, foosball and arcade machine , provide entertainment on colder nights.

The house is nestled in the hills of Calabasas, home to many celebrities including Drake, Miley Cyrus and the Kardashians.

Food for thought: the pad also houses a huge library, with fireplace and balcony terrace, where the couple undoubtedly found inspiration for their music

In October 2017, the former One Direction star claimed the pad was haunted. Speaking to The Sun, he explained that a random woman approached his mother on the street to inform her that the ghost of the previous owner resided at the property.

He said, “Cheryl wouldn’t be staying in the upstairs room, being pregnant with the baby. I saw lights go on and off in the middle of the night and a few scary little things like faucets that turn on and off.

“If you don’t believe it, I don’t think it will touch you. But Cheryl said, “I don’t sleep upstairs.” So we slept downstairs in the movie theater. First world problems.

Liam and Cheryl announced their separation with an honest statement, writing, “We still have so much love for each other as a family. The bear is our world and we ask that you respect its privacy as we navigate.

Cheryl and Payne first met on The X Factor in 2008, when she was a judge and he auditioned as a solo contestant, then 14, before becoming a part of One Direction.
