Could One Direction be going the way of the Jonas Brothers? There are two more 1Ders than there are J-Bros and they’re not bound by any bonds of blood, so when we hear a couple of the members are scuffling we get a little worried.
So who’s fighting in the group? That be Liam Payne and Louis Tomlinson. The the 20-year-old and nearly 22-year-old aired their struggles in an extra clip from the band’s new movie, This Is Us.
“We used to be at each other’s throats while we were on The X Factor [UK],” Louis says. “He took it so, so seriously.”
Whenever Louis would look to stir up something “slightly mischievous”, he says Liam would always “be the daddy.” That’s how the middle-child of 1D ended up with the nickname “Daddy Direction.”
But even Daddy can lose his patience. “We did not get on at all,” Liam says of Louis. “We were two completely different characters.” One time the group’s oldest member and his “loud and bubbly” personality got on Liam’s nerves so much “I literally wanted to whack him.”
Thankfully, the two have since found common ground or, as Zayn Malik puts it, the other members have “corrupted” Daddy Direction a little bit. Whatever it takes to keep you boys together.
