Liam Payne had some choice words to say about his former bandmate Zayn Malik during a bombshell interview about One Direction.
During an appearance on the "Impaulsive" podcast with Logan Paul, Liam reflected on the highs and lows of being in one of the world's most successful boy bands, One Direction, which also featured Harry Styles, Louis Tomlinson and Niall Horan as well as Payne and Malik.
The band got its start on the "X Factor" UK in 2010 and went on an indefinite hiatus since 2015 shortly after Zayn left the group.
When host Logan Paul brought up a brief Twitter feud between Zayn, Gigi Hadid and his brother Jake Paul, Payne shaded the "Pillowtalk" artist.
Liam said, "She tweeted something about get yourself a respectful man or something. That one didn't age very well". (Zayn allegedly got into an altercation with Yolanda Hadid last year.)
Liam continued, "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."
"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."
