Liam Payne Addresses Gay Rumors Following Alleged Leaked Nudes

Rihanna has fallen victim to hackers leaking private photos.
One Direction’s Liam Payne is the latest victim of an online nude photo hoax…

A fake photo of the 21-year-old boy bander went around allegedly showing him nude and in bed with another man, which in turn sparked speculation over the singer’s sexual orientation.

Payne took to Twitter on Sunday to dispel the rumors:


However, while his Tweet clarified some things, it also ended up landing him in some turmoil with fans who questioned whether he has a problem with homosexuality.

“I’m 100% not homophobic,” he clarified.  “But I’m also 100% not gay so when somebody says that I am gunna say I’m not which does not make me a homophobe.”

As for the alleged photo, it’s not thought to be related to the last round of leaked nude pictures on Reddit and 4Chan, which include other big names like Jennifer Lawrence, Rihanna, Kim Kardashian and Amber Heard.
