In the early hours of Monday morning, Liam Payne developed a nosebleed while returning home following a night out.
After being photographed play-fighting with friends earlier in the night, the former One Direction singer, 28, was pictured suffering as he left the Soccer Aid afterparty at the luxury Nobu Hotel in London’s Shoreditch at 3 am.
Liam had a mysterious brunette hiding in the back seat of his car, who kept her head down to avoid being spotted.
Liam had a flirtation with model Aliana Mawla, 24, only weeks after he broke up with fiancée Maya Henry, 21, and the outing comes just a week after they parted.
In May, the on-again, the off-again couple decided to call it quits. They had previously called off their engagement in 2021, but only two months later restored their passion and were still going strong until they hit the rocks again this year.
Liam Payne got a nosebleed while driving home from a night out early Monday morning. As he left the Soccer Aid afterparty at the luxurious Nobu Hotel in Shoreditch at 3 a.m., the former One Direction singer, 28, was in pain.
Liam had been seen play-fighting with friends earlier in the evening after taking part in the star-studded Soccer Aid event to raise money for charity.
Liam had reportedly split from Maya in order to spend more time with his four-year-old son, Bear, whom he shares with ex-girlfriend Cheryl, 39.
After a two-and-a-half-year romance, the former couple welcomed Bear in 2017 but divorced the following year.
Logan Paul acknowledged on his Impulsive podcast that becoming a father at the tender age of 23 was difficult at first, but that it helped him control his wild behavior.
During his tenure in the band, the vocalist admitted that he would ‘listen to the horrible beastie in his head’ and would frequently use the hotel mini bar and trash his room.
‘I spent a lot of my life f***ed up,’ he explained. Whatever the horrible beastie in my head wants to tell me, and dealing with that part is difficult.
‘I’m now content with who I am and who I’ve become.’ ‘What do you enjoy in life?’ is the most important question. And I’m not sure because I just chose to enjoy the hotel room’s mini-bar while trashing it. That was the end of the story.’
Liam wore a simple white T-shirt with a navy bomber jacket and a gold watch to keep things low-key.
Liam had a mystery brunette in the rear seat of his car who kept her head down so she wouldn’t be seen.
Liam previously said that he battled addiction and mental health concerns throughout his time in One Direction, which he kept hidden until last year.
Liam, Harry Styles, Louis Tomlinson, Niall Horan, and Zayn Malik created the group in 2010 on The X Factor, and they went on to become the world’s biggest boyband until splitting in 2015.
‘There were a few images of me on a boat and I was all swollen out and I call it my pills-and-booze face,’ Liam admitted, adding that he battled to stay sober on tour.
‘My face was a tenth of its current size. The problem was that the only way to keep us safe was to lock us in our rooms, and who knows what was in there? A small refrigerator.
‘As a result, I had a one-on-one party that lasted years.’ It was insane, but it was the only way to let off steam.’
During the lockdown, Liam revealed that he reverted to old behaviors and grew reliant on booze, causing him to gain weight.
Last year, he stated he needed to ‘work on himself and that he had been alcohol-free for more than a month on The Diary Of A CEO podcast.
Sleepy? After a night out at the Soccer Aid afterparty, Liam looked ready for bed when the clock struck 3 a.m.
‘I’m more disappointed in myself than anything else at this time,’ he remarked.
‘It irritates me,’ I say. Relationships have always been a challenge for me. And, at this point, I’m aware of my pattern in terms of relationships.
‘I’m simply not very good at them,’ she says, ‘so I’ll just have to work on myself before passing myself off to someone else.’
At the time of his interview, Liam claimed to have been sober for a month.
He recently admitted to drinking and revealed in May that he was under the influence of alcohol when hosting an Oscars show.
Low-key: On the way home, Liam’s female companion appeared to be a little camera-shy.
What drew your attention? Something was bothering Liam in the van, and he looked frightened.
In May, when Liam was interviewed about the notorious Will Smith slap, he was compelled to explain why his accent seemed to have entirely altered.
During an interview with Good Morning Britain that went viral for all the wrong reasons, Liam blamed his weird Irish-American accent on a lot of drink.’
He defined himself as a social chameleon,’ claiming that his accent is “ever-changing” depending on who he is around, before claiming that he is “excellent at accents.”
‘I’m brilliant at accents, I pride myself on them!’ Liam quipped about his interview in an Instagram Live video. I only wish I could accomplish things on my own at times.
‘No, I don’t know what I can say about that.’ ‘It was a hoot.’
Liam had a relationship with model Aliana Mawla, 24, (left), just weeks after he broke up with fiancée Maya Henry, 21.
As his buddies could be heard chuckling in the background, the former One Direction star admitted to telling the host not to ask him any difficult questions since he had a lot to drink.’
“Please don’t ask me too many questions because I’ve had a lot to drink and I’m under-ly educated about the Oscars,” he stated to Good Morning Britain’s presenter. “Don’t ask too many questions,” I said.
‘Now, the man’s first inquiry was, “How do you feel about Will Smith?”
‘Can you picture being put on the spot in that situation and knowing, “I can’t say anything incorrect because I’ll offend someone,” and doing the best you could?’
‘I’m just sorry that came out in so many accents!’ Liam said, adding that he has listened to his interview and stands by his statements, which were branded as ‘rambling.’ I’m not even sure if I can pull off the accent.’
Liam had split from Maya to spend more time with his four-year-old son, Bear, whom he shares with ex Cheryl, 39, according to reports. After a two-and-a-half-year relationship, the pair broke up in 2018.
Liam recently stated that becoming a father at the youthful age of 23 was difficult for him at first, but that it enabled him to control his wild behaviour.
He then said that all people need to do is watch his X Factor audition to see proof of his ‘ever-changing’ personality, claiming that you couldn’t tell he was from Birmingham.
‘I didn’t realize the Birmingham accent would become so popular because of Peaky Blinders, but I don’t sound like I’m from Birmingham at all in the audition,’ he remarked.
Meanwhile, Liam has been chastised by fans for calling former One Direction bandmate Zayn Malik a “d*ck.”
‘I performed one performance on TV at the BAFTAs (left) and I was disappointed with myself,’ Liam said regarding his weight gain while on lockdown. ‘I didn’t look as good as I wanted to.’
Zayn’s online fight with Logan’s brother Jake Paul in 2020, which ended with Zayn’s then-girlfriend Gigi Hadid calling Jake “irrelevant” and defending her husband as “a respectable king,” was discussed by Liam and Logan.
‘She tweeted something about getting yourself a respectful dude or something,’ Liam shared his opinion on the issue. ‘That one hasn’t held up well over time.’
Fans saw the remark as a reference to Gigi’s mother Yolanda Hadid’s allegation that Zayn threw her into a dresser and called her a “f***ing Dutch slut” last year.
Liam went on to claim that there are “many reasons why I loathe Zayn,” but that due to Zayn’s reported difficult upbringing, he will “always be on his side.”
Getting well-known: Liam, Louis Tomlinson, Zayn Malik, Niall Horan, and Harry Styles founded One Direction on The X Factor in 2010 and went on to become the world’s biggest boyband.
‘There are a lot of reasons why I loathe Zayn, and a lot of reasons why I’ll always, always be on his side,’ he explained.
‘If I had to go through what he did, through his development and everything else. Do your parents provide you with a lot of support?
‘My parents are extremely supportive to the point of annoyance, and they don’t seem to mind. In that sense, Zayn grew up differently.’
‘You can always look at the dude and think, ‘Oh, sure, whatever, that guy’s a d*ck,” he said. Right? But, at the end of the day, after you know what he’s gone through to get there, and whether or not he really wanted to be there…
‘More than anyone, I’m misunderstood by myself, as if I have no idea what I’m doing or why I’m here.’ Because of whatever, I can’t sit here and d*ck on him.’
Liam later apologized for his comments, claiming that he was unable to properly describe himself.
“Guys,” he said. I usually don’t remark on such things, but when it comes to your family, it’s difficult to ignore.
‘They cited a specific instance with Zayn, to which I answered – although, upon reflection, I’m not sure I articulated myself as well as I might have.’
‘I was stating that there will always be points of contention between us, but that I will always be on his side.’ That is what it means to be family. I will always support Zayn since he is my brother.’
