Liam Payne wants his fans to know the only direction he’s going is with his bandmates by his side. The One Direction heartthrob took to Twitter over the weekend to clear the air regarding rumors that he was planning on leaving the group.
According to a report from the Daily Star, the singer was reportedly thinking of leaving the group to spend more time with his girlfriend, Danielle Peazer.
But 1D fans should breathe a sigh of relief, because Payne’s not going anywhere. “Thought I’d let you know this latest story is bulls—. I love you guys so much,” he tweeted Sunday. “I love this band. they’re my best mates. I ain’t goin [no] werrr.”
His denial comes one month after groupmate Zayn Malik shot down similar claims that he had plans to leave 1D behind. At the time the band’s rep issued a statement calling those claims “completely untrue.”
While Payne and the rest of the guys of 1D all auditioned for “X Factor” U.K. as solo artists, these days they are a united front. In an interview with Barbara Walters on her “The 10 Most Fascinating People of 2012” special last December they opened up about potential solo careers . “Me, personally, I wouldn’t do it,” Louis Tomlinson said during the interview.
“We’re… we’re together now, and that’s, I think, that’s it. Yeah, it’s like you’d be doing wrong,” Niall Horan added. Malik was also steadfast in his dedication to the chart-topping group, adding, “No way. It’s not even, like, a question. We’d just be like, ’No, I’m not doing it.’ ”
One Direction are currently on their Take Me Home tour , which has stops planned for all around the world before they come to the States in June. Their 3-D movie opens this August and they are already reportedly working on new music for a still unknown project.
