Liam Payne has told fans that he is feeling “super low” and that he has been “diagnosed with a couple of conditions”.

The singer recently revealed that he took “a little bit of time out” at a centre in America following his appearance on Logan Paul’s podcast, where he sparked a backlash when he made controversial comments regarding One Direction and his time in the band.

Speaking in a video last week, he said that he'd been at a point where he “became somebody who I didn’t really recognise any more” and also shared that he had been sober for six months.

Opening up in a new video on his Instagram Story, Payne said he was feeling low and had decided to speak out so anyone feeling the same way knew they weren’t the only one.

“The last video I mentioned I had been diagnosed with a couple of conditions, not to go too much into detail one of them that I have basically, there is a lot of manic things in my life which you guys saw,” said the star.

“But the other side of it, and that kind of feels like when I would lose my sobriety would be within these moments that were super low and I kind of felt like that today.

“Since isolating the two things and seeing them separately I know what they are now and I can identify them.”

Payne, 29, went on: “And luckily I’ve got some amazing people around me that kind of look after me but I’m sure they can see it in me too, that I’m just not really here.”

“I just wanted to put this out here anyway as I know there is probably a few people who will have the same thing, maybe don’t even know it sometimes, but yeah, just so you know, you are not the only one.”

In the caption, Payne said that he’d filmed the video about 20 times this year but had been “too scared” to share it.

He said he wanted others to benefit from some of the things that he had learned from specialists while he was away, like how important it is to not bottle up your feelings.

“Feeling is one of the amazing gifts we have and I blocked things up so long it made me sick and lash out…” he said.
