Liam Payne’s Mum Was Not The Biggest Fan Of His Thirsty Underwear Photo Shoot

Liam Payne

Last year, as you may recall, the world was blessed with a series of outrageously thirsty photos of Liam Payne, thanks to a Hugo Boss underwear campaign.

The former One Direction singer posed with model Stella Maxwell for the shots, which showed off his ripped physique and didn’t leave a hell of a lot to the imagination.

In an interview to promote his new solo single, Liam Payne spoke with UK publication The Sun, and the subject of the photo shoot came up.

The singer said that while many of his mates were impressed, his mum was a tough crowd. He explained:

“Quite a few mates said they had to spin their cars around to try and get pictures of me across a bus – but it was my mum’s reaction I remember best. She saw the shots just before they came out and obviously there’s some very raunchy ones of me and Stella – so I tried to show my dad first to soften the blow.”

He continued:

“I was at The O2 because I was about to go on and ­support Rita Ora, we were going to perform our song For You together. I was backstage and tried to show him quickly on my phone while mum went to the loo, but she came back and saw what I was showing him. She was like, ‘What’s that?’ and saw Stella draped across me in this picture and then she hit me around the earhole. It took me right back to my childhood straight away.”

In the same interview, Liam Payne said that the One Direction lads have been speaking “a lot” in the lead-up to the group’s ten-year anniversary, raising questions about a possible reunion.

Nothing has explicit been said, but we eagerly await further updates.
