The Texas model caught the eye as she left the London Mayfair branch of popular Japanese restaurant chain Nobu after dining with friends.

Maya, 21, is due to remain in the English capital following her abrupt split from One Direction star Liam, but she was alone as she took to Park Lane after her latest public appearance.

The young brunette looked stunning in a low-cut ivory blouse and high-necked black trousers as she prepared to head home.

She complemented a sophisticated ensemble with strappy black heels, while makeup from a soft color palette drew attention to her naturally pretty features.

Maya is said to have been devastated by the collapse of her engagement to Liam, 28, who has seamlessly moved on with peer social media influencer Aliana Mawla.

However, the singer is said to be wary of the uproar surrounding their split and his fast-developing new romance with Florida-based Aliana.

A source told The Sun: “None of this was what Liam wanted and it’s all gotten very public and quite messy.

“He hopes he and Maya can just go their separate ways now. Those around her are worried that she might talk about their relationship — and given the anger she’s feeling at their breakup, that’s far from ideal.”

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

A source told The Mirror: “This is such a blow for Maya, she is making arrangements to get her things from his house so she can move on and forget they were ever together.

“To say you never know someone is an understatement. They were engaged and he showed her zero respect. She is now contemplating her next steps and building a new life without Liam.”

MailOnline exclusively confirmed that Liam and Maya had split after breaking off their engagement in June 2021 – only to rekindle their romance two months later.

In a recent interview with People, Liam admitted the couple had “been through a lot” in lockdown but overcame their challenges.

He elaborated: “I think we’ve been through a lot in COVID. I feel like we came out a little stronger on the other side.

“Most couples who have been married for years have had problems, right? So, I mean, we’re still very happy to be here together today.
