Uh-oh, it looks as though all is not well between One Direction star Liam Payne and his former manager Simon Cowell, with Si seemingly hitting out at the star in a sly dig.
That is totally not okay, Simon.
Speaking about the biggest X Factor success in the show’s history, Simon spoke out to praise the “loyalty” of Harry Styles, Louis Tomlinson and Niall Horan, but failed to mention Liam.
He explained: “We are in touch with them all.
"The great thing about all these boys - well not all of them but most of them - they are incredibly loyal and you don’t always expect that.
"Niall, Harry, Louis - amazing.”
We mean, he specifically went out of his way to say that “not all of” One Direction are loyal and then blatantly didn’t name-check Liam…
Liam recently announced that he had signed to Capitol records and looked forward to showing what he can do as a solo artist during the remainder of One Direction’s break.
However, this can’t be what has rattled Simon’s cage because it had previously been revealed that Harry had also signed a solo record deal elsewhere.
Meanwhile, Simon has been bonding with Louis after he joined the music mogul as a guest judge on America’s Got Talent, with Simon keen to sing the 24 year old’s praises.
He added: “Louis is great! It was so funny, and so kind of odd, because he had auditioned for me five years ago, and now he’s sitting where I’m sitting, judging other people and doing it really well.
"I was really happy for him, he loved doing it.”
Needless to say, we are definitely intrigued to find out what on Earth has turned Simon against Liam…
