Poor Liam Payne! New alleged details about the reason One Direction canceled their concert so suddenly on Oct. 20 have emerged, and it’s being reported that major stress has really gotten to Liam as the certainty of the band’s future hangs in the balance.
Liam Payne was back on stage with One Direction on Oct. 21, but fans are still super concerned about his health after a sudden illness caused the band to cancel their concert the night before. The 22-year-old allegedly had a total meltdown backstage before the Oct. 20 show…and it’s been a long time coming, according to a new report.
“The pressures of fame and being on the road for two years have made Liam ill,” The Sun reports. “He was devastated about letting everyone down, especially the fans, but he wasn’t physically able to get on stage. He had a complete meltdown.”
After their album comes out on Nov. 13, life is going to be incredibly different for the guys of 1D. Although they’ll spend a few months promoting it, they’re set to take a huge, well-deserved break in 2016, but many have speculated that the group will call it quits before they get back together — and that uncertainty has reportedly been building up for Liam.
“Liam’s stress has been brewing for quite a while and it hasn’t helped that his future is uncertain with the break coming up,” the paper’s source adds. “But the guys have rallied around Liam and are desperate to make sure he is okay.”
Things definitely seemed to be going better for Liam by Oct. 21, just hours after his alleged meltdown. “I’m so sorry to everybody I disappointed last night,” he tweeted. “I’m feeling better now. I really hope everyone can make the rescheduled date on Friday. Thank you so much for all the trends and lovely messages you guys did for me it really shows how amazing u guys are. As I said I’m feeling better now and I really can’t wait to perform and make it up to everyone later.”
One Direction’s camp is not commenting on Liam’s health at this time.
HollywoodLifers, do you think Liam will end up leaving the band like Zayn did?
