Liam Payne has poured cold water on reports that there are major clashes and arguments taking place between the members of One Direction currently.

It was reported recently that the Little Things singers were locked in a ‘bitter battle’ after Harry Styles revealed he wanted to change their musical direction and make them a bit more credible.

The Kiss You hitmaker supposedly told Liam, Niall Horan, Louis Tomlinson and Zayn Malik that he would prefer their fourth record to be an all out rock album and he wants to avoid the pop tunes that have made them famous and go with a heavier and more unique vibe.

However so called insiders said Niall and Louis were against the idea and clashed most with their bandmate about his ideas, leading to a tension and frostiness between the singers.

One source told The Daily Star:

“The problem is the rest of the band fear if Harry starts changing their style, he’s going to take over the whole thing.

“They all have different ideas on what direction they want to take musically, and they’re becoming more and more vocal about it.

“Niall and Louis especially are worried about turning their backs on a pop sound and changing a winning formula.”

There has been some talk of Harry recording his own music and planning a solo career if One Direction doesn’t go his way and the insider added:

“The fear is that if Harry doesn’t get his way he could end up walking out and going solo.”

However Liam has insisted that the reports are rubbish and unfounded.

The band haven’t been spotted together for a while, but he insisted they are just on a break and catching up with some private friend and family time.

Daddy Directioner set the record straight tweeting:

“Lots of articles saying we are clashing … no ones clashing we are just having a bit of Family time after hitting the road for 3 years”

Niall Horan retweeted his message today.

Fans seemed relieved by the post and replies included:

“hahaha no worries we all knew those were bullshit anyways 🙂 hope you’re enjoying your break liam!”

“@Real_Liam_Payne I don’t believe those stupid articles any Liam, love youu💕”

“@Real_Liam_Payne Don’t they realize how important it is for you guys to take a step back & breathe?! It’s good for the mind AND soul! 👍💙”

“what an incredibly beautiful thing to wake up from a nap to. Love you more 💚”

    i don’t think its a big deal. louis and harry are best boyfriends and will sort it out. he’s probably just nervous about what people would think. its like being blonde and dying your hair black. you don’t know what the outcome will be and it makes you nervous!

    You’re right they are best FRIENDS!!!

  4. Laura on January 9, 2014 at 12:50 am

  5. liz on January 9, 2014 at 12:52 am

    harry seems like hes the main. like hes always in the middle and has the most singing parts out of all of them. he kinds “takes over the band” if you know what i mean

    Louis Tomlinson and Harry styles clash?? I am laughing for days on this BS, considering they actually wrote a song together. But noone cares about facts these days in the media. I can smell the source of this entire rumor, and I am looking right at you management. They think by putting out slanderous rumors, its somehow going to make people believe they hate each other, thus damping down the gay rumors. Those are never going to go away so Modest might as well just stick its tail between its legs and go home.

  8. I love louis on January 9, 2014 at 3:11 am

    Omg louis is the cutest I love him 😍

  9. L on January 9, 2014 at 3:29 am

    You DO realize that LOUIS is the one who wrote 12/18 songs on this album, right? Just because Harry dresses like Keith Richards doesn’t mean he wants to be a rock star, god, get your facts straight. And just so you know, they’re on break for the HOLIDAYS. Stop creating drama where there isn’t any and report on actual valid stories.

    Not only is this entire rumor absolute rubbish but the fact that you single out Harry and Louis as the ones “clashing” in the title is pathetic, especially upon reading the rest of the article. How about writing something honest for a change? Or is that too far beyond your comfort zone.

    Okay, him clashing with his fellow band mates probably won’t happen, but I do see Harry becoming more independent. If you look at interviews, or pictures that they’re in together these days, Harry is always a few inches away from the rest of them, or he is on the complete other side from his band mates(expert in body language. His body language screams distance. I’not saying that he will leave them anytime soon, but he will probably be the 1st of them to try and go solo. Someone can only do this genre of music fro a period of time before they get tired of it, and want to do something else; perhaps on their own(new genre). Boy bands like this tend to last about 6/7 years, give or take. If they keep singing about the same topics(crushing, loving girls), it will just start to seem creepy. They should take a hint from the Backstreet Boys. They started out singing about the same things, they separated for a bit, and then they came back with more mature music. I think that it’s time that One Direction matures(music wise), and I don’t’t see anyone but Harry vocalizing that change. I’m 19 as well, and I don’t how I could handle singing about the same topics for 100+ shows, over and over again. He will crack about it sooner or later.

    I wonder how you sleep at night – all you do is make shit up and try to destroy friendships and relationships. What the hell is wrong with you – why can’t you just report on FACTS for once in your godawful life?

  13. K on January 9, 2014 at 5:05 am

    lmao she’s an “expert in body language” and can’t see when someone’s being controlled..

  14. Hazza on January 9, 2014 at 5:53 am

    Ofcourse…all knew those reports are rubbish…just that hendall drama is getting out of the hand

  15. Sarah on January 9, 2014 at 6:32 am

    I think so many people are just bored and want to make up drama. It’s incredibly sad how they can’t even spend 2 weeks away from the media without rumours like this. They all have stated, multiple times, that they are quite content being in the band, singing with each other.
    Now, of course they’re going to argue. They’re like brothers to each other. Brothers argue, but they get over it. They even talk about it in “This Is Us”
    Let the boys just enjoy life for a few weeks! Goodness knows they deserve it after basically giving their teen years to us!

  16. Kimberlie on January 9, 2014 at 7:45 am

    Louis is hot…… but I agree with Liam they do deserve some time with their families. And Louis doesn’t need the extra stress because he just lost his grandmother.

  17. Mollie on January 9, 2014 at 9:21 am

    are people ok

  18. Mollie on January 9, 2014 at 9:23 am

    people are just extremely bored and just want to make up BS about louis and harry for fun or drama but as Liam confirmed yesterday on twitter that the rumours of clashing was untrue and that they were just spending valued time with family on their rare time off.

  19. 1db on January 9, 2014 at 3:48 pm

    They finally get some time off and then you create drama for page hits. Ridiculous. You should be ashamed of yourselves

  20. amane on January 10, 2014 at 12:38 am

    i mean: “leave” (not ‘live’)

  21. Chrissy on January 10, 2014 at 4:12 am

    Obviously Harry will have a solo career, that’s why you always see him out with diff people than the rest of the band. He’s making connections, he’s a smart boy. Now Harry doesn’t have the best voice obv. First it’s Zayn, then Liam, then Harry. Zayn being first because when was the last time you saw Zayn’s voice crack, other than the UAN tour (which was only two times). I wish it was Zayn that could go solo but, he’s not as outgoing as Harry, so if the solo career doesn’t work for him he should just become a Vogue Model. Let’s be real. And, we all know Louis isn’t going to do sh!t. Still love him though. Niall might just become a song writer or a producer since e plays several instruments. Now that leaves us with Liam and Harry, those two might try to do a Solo. I know everyone keeps saying Harry will be the most successful, but you have to understand that Harry isn’t everyone’s fave. Let’s see what happens though.

    I think we have no clue who could be successfull as a solo act from 1D.
    And it’s not even about who is the most “favourite” right now: it’s about having the right song at the right time. Having a successfull career is a matter of luck as well as working hard and having a good voice. It’s not about having the best voice, you need a song that suits your voice well and is catchy & good. For any of the 1D boys to make it solo, they might also have to appeal outside the 1D fanbase, we’ll see if any of them manages that in the future.
    I would support any of them IF I loved the song, whether they are my favourite or not…

    For now they are happy to be a group, so let’s enjoy that without creating needless drama!
