Liam Payne talks One Direction

It wasn't all sunshine and roses in One Direction, according to Liam Payne.

The artist recalled an argument he had backstage with one of his band mates before a gig: "[He] threw me up a wall"

On Impaulsive with Logan Paul, he said he made it clear while he was in the band that he wouldn't take any, "sh*t."

"There was one moment where there was an argument backstage and one member in particular threw me up a wall," he recalled.

"So I said to him, 'If you don't remove those hands there's a high likelihood you'll never use them again.'"

Thankfully the mystery singer back off, and Liam allowed him to keep his hands.

Liam refused to name names so we've no idea which member he was referring to, but it could only be one of four: Niall, Harry, Louis or Zayn.

Zayn Malik

Elsewhere in the interview, he spoke about his strained relationship with Zayn Malik.

"There's many reasons why I dislike Zayn and there's many reasons why I'll always, always be on his side."

Liam said his own parents were, "overly supportive," of him, whereas 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,' right?"

He continued, "But at the end of the day, once you understand what he's been through to get to that point, and also whether or not he actually even wanted to be there."

"Listen, I don't agree with any of his actions," Liam said.

"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 on the other end of the phone wants to receive the help that you're willing to give them."

In other news...

In other Liam Payne news, it was reported last week that he and his fiancé Maya Henry had called it quits.

Shortly after the story emerged, he was spotted out, arm in arm with American Model Aliana Mawla at Heathrow Airport.

In a statement, Aliana's rep has denied what some are speculating - that Aliana and Liam got together while he was still with Maya.
