ENTERTAINMENT: Simon Cowell Disses Liam Payne

Uh-oh. Looks like trouble is brewing between Liam and Simon.

Simon Cowell, who helped launch One Direction in the superstar boy band they are today thanks to X-Factor, recently spoke out and sang praises for the members of 1D — well, some of them at least.

Speaking on the boys’ loyalty, Simon had this to say:

“You know what, we’re talking to all of [the 1D guys] at the moment. You know what the great thing about these boys are, well not all of them, just most of them, they’re incredibly loyal. And you don’t always expect that. Niall, Harry, Louis are amazing.”

He totally left Liam out. Eeek. Could this be because of the news on Liam’s new solo record deal?

But if that were the case, then why is Simon on good terms with Harry, who also launched a solo career of his own?

Looks like only time will tell.

What are your thoughts on this, Directioners?
