Are two One Direction members totally fed up with each other?! A video has surfaced of Liam Payne shoving Louis Tomlinson on stage during one of the band’s recent tour stops, but was it out of anger…or all in good fun? Liam took to Twitter to clarify — see his response.
GASP…are Liam Payne, 22, and Louis Tomlinson, 23, totally feuding!? The guys seemed to engage in a bit of a physical altercation during their concert in Manchester on Oct. 4, with Liam seemingly shoving his bandmate pretty hard. But the 22-year-old is making sure to set the record straight on this one, and he used social media to issue a pretty angry retaliation.
In the video, Harry Styles, 21, is hard at work concentrating on signing the right lyrics, but Liam seems to have something else on his mind besides the current song. We see him grab Louis by the shoulders before shoving the dad-to-be right out of the way…and he really does appear to have a pretty angry look on his face.
But don’t worry Directioners — it was all just an act! “OH MY GOD THATS SO OUTRAGEOUS HOW DARE I HAVE A JOKE WITH MY FRIEND ON STAGE,” Louis tweeted in response to an article about the alleged fight. “Simply the funniest story I’ve read to date clearly the person who wrote this has never experienced friendly banter in their life.”
Something seemed to have been up with Louis during the show, though, because an eyewitness reported that he kept “disappearing off-stage between songs.” At one point, the concert goer even said that the 23-year-old forgot the words to one of the songs, and Harry had to take over, so there was major speculation that Liam really did get pissed off at his pal for being so out of it. But, come on — Louis is going to be a dad soon! We don’t blame him for having a lot on his mind.
The guys in 1D have always been so playful with one another, and this was just another instance of them goofing around. And even if they are getting a little annoyed with one another, they’ll only have to deal with it for a few more months — as we previously reported, the band is taking a much-deserved break in 2016.
