Before revealing the important aspects of his conversation with Payne, Paul claimed that the latter had taken a whiskey, and it loosened him up. Paul said, “He [Payne] said a lot of stuff people were upset about. I’m not super in you know the one direction world, but people were upset that Liam said that he was basically the founding father of one direction and that he was the inception, which he very well could have been, but again I don’t know the interest. He was the first honorary member of one direction. Simon built the group around him. That’s what he said. I think people were upset then, to be honest.”

Taking a dig at Payne, Schulz responded, “I didn’t know he was in One Direction. I thought he was in Peaky Blinders.”

Notably, it is debatable who was the founding father of the band ‘One direction’. As of now, the group is scattered as all singers of this band are dealing with their own business.

When will Logan Paul return to the ring?
