Liam Payne has been an international man of mystery during mid-February and it appears that he jumped on a plane from Los Angeles just before the Grammys on February 15.
For fans that thought Liam Payne might have been posting a picture of a rose on Valentine's Day on social media from Los Angeles, it turns out that he may have been in the Maldives.
However, Liam Payne has decided that he should not be away from Los Angeles for very long, and it is rumored that he has not seen Louis Tomlinson's baby yet.
Louis Tomlinson had his son about a month ago, and is obviously very busy, but it does not mean Liam Payne has been staying away on purpose. In fact, Liam Payne teased Louis Tomlinson about the distance between them on Instagram on February 20.In a photo of himself looking confused, Liam Payne captioned it with "That friend you call 49 times … And then he's like ahhh man where u been," and tagged Louis Tomlinson in the post.
As it appears, Liam Payne may have hinted to the paparazzi or fans that swarmed him upon arrival at the Los Angeles Airport on February 19 that he had intentions of hanging out with little Freddie and his pops, Louis Tomlinson, according to Melty Fan Italia.
Fan 2 France also points out that Liam Payne may have gotten a new tattoo in the Maldives since he has a "4" on one of his fingers where there was not one previously. They also implied that Liam Payne could have gotten the tattoo as a reference to One Direction going from five members to four, but that detail has not been confirmed by Liam Payne.
Another rumor that has not been confirmed is whether or not Liam Payne traveled from the Maldives to Dubai and then to Los Angeles. Despite the fact that there was no photographic evidence of Liam Payne being in Dubai, Twitter exploded with joy about the possibility.
One Twitter user posted with confidence about Liam Payne being in Dubai and tweeted on February 19, "OMG, Liam arrives here in about two hours!"
Naturally, many fans on Twitter pointed out the obvious and that is the fact that Liam Payne was so close to India by being in the Maldives and Dubai … so why did he avoid visiting?
While Liam Payne may one day go to India and hang out with fans, he is currently headed back to Los Angeles -- most likely for work.
In particular, one of the reasons that Liam Payne could be returning to Los Angeles so quickly is because of Jennifer Lopez. The Sun points out that Liam Payne is thrilled to work with Jennifer Lopez, and all of his solo work is under the label of Hampton Music Limited.
Alternatively, UnReality TV states that the real draw for Liam Payne to Los Angeles may be working on music for Juicy J. Liam Payne also has a collaboration offer from Shawn Mendes.Of course, the real question might be if Liam Payne and Zayn Malik will be hooking up again in Los Angeles. After fans saw them together in mid-February, several rumors started spinning about what it meant for Liam Payne's future.
This is especially true since the Daily Mail points out that Zayn Malik said in an interview that Liam Payne did not always understand his reasons for leaving One Direction almost a year ago. About the awkwardness between Liam Payne and Zayn Malik in mid-February, Zayn stated the following.
"[Liam Payne] said that he didn't understand it at the time, but he now fully gets why I had to do what I did. He understands that it's my thing, that I had to do that, and that basically he wants to meet up and sit down and have a good chat in person."[Picture by John Philips/Stringer/Getty Images]
