Liam discussed everything from fatherhood with ex-partner Cheryl and son Bear apparently ‘ruining’ their relationship – but for ‘all the right reasons’ – to having hated former One Direction bandmate Louis Tomlinson in the past, and his ‘dislike’ for Zayn Malik.
Taking to TikTok, the 28-year-old Swagger Jagger singer, who finished in fourth place behind One Direction in series seven of The X Factor in 2010, shared a clip of herself lip-syncing to Hoziers Muse.
‘You should have kept that it, you should have kept that to yourself. Why would you let the whole word know that?’ she mouthed as she pulled a face and threw her hands up in the air.
She then before hit her right hand to her forehead and screwed up her face as the TikTok video ended.

Followers were here for her teasing, with one posting: ‘not the xfactor alumni drama 😭’
‘Tell him Cher,’ joked one fan, while another wrote: ‘Absolutely brilliant ☕️☕️☕️☕️’
Liam’s appearance on the Impaulsive podcast with Logan Paul saw him say that he and Louis are ‘best mates now’ they were ‘to come to blows hate each other’ levels of animosity during the band’s tenure, which paused in 2016 after they went on hiatus.
He also attracted online mockery for suggesting One Direction was built around him, following his original X Factor audition two years before, after the dad-of-one said show bosses ‘started with my face and worked around the rest.’
As one fan remarked: ‘liam payne is doing a podcast with logan paul and harry styles is performing at a sold out wembley stadium in a few weeks. the levels is hilarious [sic].’

The Strip That Down singer also admitted to struggling to adjust to becoming a dad to son Bear, now five, in 2017 and let the world know that Cheryl haemorrhaged ‘quite badly’ during labour.
Having seen the backlash to comments he made about Zayn during the interview, where he said that ‘there are many reasons why I dislike Zayn, and there are many reasons why I’ll always be on his side’, as well as ‘I don’t agree with any of his actions. I can’t commend some of the things that he’s done’, Liam used Twitter to clear the air.

‘Guys – I wouldn’t normally comment on this stuff but when its your family it’s hard to let it slide,’ he wrote.
‘They mentioned a specific incident involving Zayn which I responded to – but listening back maybe I didn’t articulate myself as well as I could have.
‘I was saying that there will always be things we disagree on but that I will always, always be on his side. That’s family. Zayn is my brother and I will stand by him forever.’
It’s believed that he was making reference to claims that Zayn ‘struck’ his girlfriend Gigi Hadid’s mum Yolanda, which he has strongly denied, in the interview.
