“If he didn’t want to be here, he shouldn’t be here, which is fine. Like I say, good for him, he’s gone off and is doing his own thing and he’s doing really well so I don’t want to mess with his stuff. We did a whole stadium tour without him so I feel like it’s fine.”
Liam admitted that he hasn’t spoken to Zayn since he left the band and he has very little contact with Harry Styles. However, he remains close with bandmate Louis Tomlinson.
He revealed, “I feel like me and Louis always had the most connection through everything. There was a point where me and Louis did not get on at all, we absolutely hated each other.
“He has been really great for the last few years. It’s nice having a brother that you can lean on who knows exactly what you’ve been through,” Liam added.
Our dreams have been crushed. Would you like to see One Direction together again?
One Direction swiftly became one of the biggest boy bands of all time following their stint on The X Factor. Niall Horan, Harry Styles, Louis Tomlinson, Liam Payne and Zayn Malik lives were transformed overnight.
Fans followed them everywhere they went, their songs took over the charts and their names were known all across the globe.
They were living the dream, but former member Liam Payne has now revealed it wasn’t all it fun and games.
In an interview withMen’s Health, the Strip That Down singer said he had to drink to cope with the sheer level of fame they were experiencing.
He explained that there were many moments when he couldn’t quite wrap his head around what was happening to him.
“When you’re doing hundreds and hundreds of [concerts] and it’s the same 22 songs at the same time every single day, even if you’re not happy, you’ve got to go out there,” he shared.
“It’s almost like putting the Disney costume on before you step up on stage and underneath the Disney costume I was pissed quite a lot of the time because there was no other way to get your head around what was going on. I mean it was fun. We had an absolute blast but there were certain parts of it where it just got a little bit toxic.”
“It’s difficult when you have the level of fame that we had in the band. There have been a lot of people in trouble with mental health that aren’t really getting the help that they need and I think that’s a bit of a problem in our industry.”
“Cheryl is trying to put on a brave face, but she’s really dreading being lonely this year. She’s really struggling at the moment, being on her own,” a source claimed.
The Love Made Me Do It singer prefers to be in a relationship and is really feeling that loneliness as Christmas approaches.
There’s no doubt Liam will be there on Christmas morning as the parents vowed to take their parenting responsibilities extremely seriously, no matter what.
The former X Factor judge and Liam Payne went their separate ways in July 2018, but they have both agreed that their son’s happiness will always be their number one priority, regardless of their relationship status.
