Louis Tomlinson defends Liam Payne after controversial podcast comments

Louis Tomlinson has hit out at Logan Paul for "pushing" Liam Payne's "buttons" earlier this year during an appearance on the Impaulsive podcast.

During his appearance, Liam went on to discuss his time in One Direction before discussing the "many reasons" why he dislikes Zayn Malik who left the chart-mauling group in 2015.

However, he went on to suggest there were "many reasons" why he'll always support Malik who was the first member to launch a solo career.

But hours after the podcast was released, fans were left in fits of rage with Liam's outbursts and the reactions they received.

Now, Louis Tomlinson has spoken out, telling The Zach Sang Show: "He (Logan Paul) knew exactly what he was doing, the buttons he was pressing.

"That's what I took away from it, whoever's involved in that show, that annoying Paul brother himself, whoever the other weird guys were.

"It just felt disrespectful, that's all I'll say."

The singer who returns with his latest single, Bigger Than Me continued: "They got so much out of it as if he hasn't got enough already.

"I f**king hate those Paul brothers."

During the infamous podcast, Liam claimed a member of One Direction "threw him" against a wall during a blistering row.

He told Logan Paul: "No, no, we became very close at points – I think it was well known in the band that I don't like taking sh*t.

"At a certain point, I made it very obvious, I'm not going to tell you how.

"There was one moment where there was an argument backstage and someone, one member in particular threw me up a wall."

He continued: "I said to him 'if you don't remove those hands, there's a high likelihood you'll never use them again'.

"He took his hands off."

Liam failed to disclose the identity of his bandmate who was involved in the alleged altercation.

Elsewhere, Louis revealed he dislikes one part of his body that he doesn't find sexy at all – a penguin which is inked on his bum.

The cheeky Doncaster lad said: "I've got between 30 or 40 little tattoos, I don't regret one of them except for that penguin on my ass.

"It's the least sexy thing in the world, whenever comes a time that I do actually take my f**king trousers off, it's not f**king sexy."

However, he did joke that his little tattoo could muffle out the sound of his farts due to the penguin having headphones on.
