Liam Payne says there are a lot of reasons he doesn't like Zayn Malik
It wasn't all it cracked up to be.
Liam Payne has revealed that there are "many reasons" he doesn't like his fellow former One Direction bandmate Zayn Malik.
He also admitted that he during his time in the band, he disliked Louis Tomlinson, and Louis didn't like him.
Zayn left the band back in 2015 before they all need up taking a hiatus and are yet to regroup.
Speaking on the Impaulsive with Logan Paul podcast, Liam said: “There’s many reasons why I dislike Zayn and there’s many reasons why I’ll always, always be on his side.
“If I had had to go through what he went through – with his growth and whatever else… My parents are overly supportive to the point where it’s annoying at times. Zayn had a different upbringing in that sense.
“You can always look at the man for where he is and say, ‘Oh yeah, whatever, that guy’s a d**k.’ But at the end of the day, once you’re understanding what he’s been through to get to that point – and also whether or not he wanted to be there.”
Speaking about what seemed to be the controversy with Zayn and Yolanda Hadid, he continued: "Listen, I don’t agree with any of his actions. I can’t commend some of the things that he’s done. I can’t be on his side for that.
“What I can say is I understand and your only hope is that at some point in their life, the person at the other end of the phone wants to receive the help that you’re willing to give them."
When it came to his relationship with Louis, who he says is his "best mate" now, he added: "In the band we hated each other.
"Like, to come to blows hate each other, it was close.
"There was one moment where there was an argument backstage and one member in particular threw me up a wall. So I said to him “If you don’t remove those hands there’s a high likelihood you’ll never use them again"."
