Ladies of America... and the UK... and the world: We have big news for you. Liam Payne of the British boy band One Direction has reportedly broken up with his girlfriend, Danielle Peazer.

UK’s The Sun reports the news, saying that Liam, 19, and Danielle, 24, made the decision to end their almost three-year romance, citing Liam’s crazy work schedule and the difficulties of being in a long-distance relationship as the reason for their split.

This isn’t the first time the couple has broken up. They first split back in September, also for long-distance reasons, before reuniting just a few months later when Danielle flew out to NYC to watch 1D perform at Madison Square Garden right before Christmas.

As recently as April, the two lovebirds were
spotted holding hands and looking quite coupley as they left a London club after a night out on the town. It’s worth noting that neither Liam nor Danielle has officially confirmed the news — so don’t go bulk-ordering any Future Mrs. Liam Payne t-shirts quite yet.

That said, The Sun’s source is confident about the split. “
“They have been trying for months to make it work but it just hasn’t,” the source reports. “Liam’s on tour until November and Danielle’s very busy so they basically never see each other.

This doesn’t mean the breakup was messy, however. “It was extremely amicable though, which is good because there’s a strong chance Danielle will still be in the lads’ upcoming 3D film.” And unlike his bandmate Harry Styles after that infamous breakup with Taylor Swift, Liam will not be insisting that Danielle be cut out of the film entirely.

Hear that, fans? You’ll still see her in the movie — but you’ll also get the satisfaction of knowing that she and Liam aren’t currently together. Which obviously means you and Liam have a shot at getting married and making beautiful children together.

Because that’s totally the logical conclusion to draw from all of this.
