In case you have not heard, Liam Payne has completely dropped out to stay at home to take care of Cheryl’s basic needs and is ignoring everything else — including his solo career, post-One Direction.
However, while he recently took off time for his sister’s wedding, according to Look, when compared to other members of One Direction, Liam Payne is definitely making more music or working on more projects than almost everyone else.
Plus, Liam Payne is not the only one that decided to take a new direction with their work life because Cheryl also quit her job at the X Factor and sold one of her companies to “restructure her life” around Liam soon after they got together, according to UnReality TV.
Despite this, there are recent accusations that have emerged on June 17 from those close to Liam Payne or Cheryl that state they are “worried” about Liam because he basically ignores everything else except hanging out around the house with Cheryl.
Worse, Liam Payne might have dropped out of fame so drastically that Sugarscape claims he was sighted using the self-checkout lane of a grocery store.
Taking a break from the intensive touring schedule of being a part of One Direction should be expected, according to Irish Examiner, Liam Payne and Cheryl should be making music, but insiders claim the following is true, instead.
“He’s got eight guitars and has barely picked one up since he’s been with Cheryl. He’s not writing music and hasn’t been in touch with… his songwriter mate. He’s not out partying and enjoying himself.”
While these accusations were made, there seems to be little evidence that Liam Payne is the least productive member of One Direction. Alternatively, compared to other One Direction members, Liam Payne does not seem to be on vacation at all and is still frequently seen at red carpet events, making new music, working on new projects, updating social media, and participating in charity.
For example, as previously reported by the Inquisitr, Louis Tomlinson is fully invested in being a new parent, and the One Direction vacation frees up his schedule to pay attention to the needs of his newborn and raising money for UNICEF.
Harry Styles has been working on a couple of rumored songs, but no new solo material is on the horizon at this time because he is focused on acting.
Niall Horan is the most productive member of One Direction with his hands in a number of projects that include at least a couple of songs, as well as raising millions of dollars for charity in just a few months with more than one event.
From reading headlines over the past few months, it is clear that Niall Horan is the most prolific on vacation, but Liam Payne and Harry Styles are tied after Niall. On top of this, Liam Payne has had the most musical focus, post-One Direction, which could mean Liam is more likely to release the first solo album of all of them.
For example, since January, Liam Payne has been linked musically with Juicy J, Jennifer Lopez, Wiz Khalifa, and is also supposed to be helping his girlfriend, Cheryl, with the next phase of her music career.
According to Music Times, Cheryl quit X Factor on April 4 and Simon Cowell said he understood her decision because he “believed for a long while that her big thing was to make records.” Simon Cowell also mentioned that shows like X Factor are “a huge commitment.”
In the end, Liam Payne may not care if people are critical of him spending a lot of time hanging out with Cheryl and doing nothing. On May 29, Cheryl was quoted by Metro stating that she does not care what online critics say about her any longer, and Liam Payne may feel the same way.
