One Direction 2013: OMG what happened to Liam Payne’s face & did Niall Horan do it?

Niall Horan caused a bit of a panic on Twitter today when he posted a picture of Liam Payne covered in bandages.

The One Direction lads have been busy all week rehearsing for their Take Me Home tour, which begins later this month and as if we weren’t worried enough after seeing Zayn Malik with a injured hand last week, this evening Nialler caused concern with his latest shot of Daddy Directioner.

Horan shared a photo which showed Payne with his head wrapped in bandages. He was sporting a large white patch over one eye and his mouth was covered with dressings.

He added the caption:

“Wishin you a speedy recovery @real_liam_payne”

We are assuming that the picture was a joke, but the picture managed to cause a fair amount of panic among Directioners everywhere and one tweeted:

“And @NiallOfficial stop wrapping @Real_Liam_Payne up in bandages. I almost had a heart attack looking at that this morning. Ya crazy kids”

Other comments included:

“Saw a picture of @real_liam_payne covered with bandages in his face. Yeah I know it’s a joke but I hope you’re okay!”

“@Real_Liam_Payne Liam, what happened to you? Why are you all covered with bandages? First Zayn now you. What’s happening up there?”

“@Real_Liam_Payne Cause I Wanna See Your Gorgeous Face, And I Can’t See Anything With Those Bandages! Awww Babe You Look Like Such A Puppy:(”

Liam hasn’t responded to the concerned tweets just yet, but we’d bet money that the whole thing was some sort of crazy prank, after all we think a trained medical professional would have veered away from covering Liam’s mouth with bandages, had he really been hurt.

We hope it’s all a joke anyway, as we’d bet Liam has had enough hospitals to last him a lifetime. The hunk was seriously ill as a baby and previously revealed in 1D’s book Dare to Dream – Life as One Direction:

“When I was born I was effectively dead. Weird, I know. The doctors couldn’t get any reaction from me so I had to be brought round and although it seemed like I was okay, there were underlying problems.

“I was born three weeks early and I kept being ill. From the age of zero to four I was always in hospital having tests done but they couldn’t find out what was wrong. They discovered that one of my kidneys wasn’t working properly and it had scarred. I had to have 32 injections in my arm in the morning and evening to try and make me better.
