AceShowbiz - Liam Payne had an unpleasant night out in Texas recently. The former member of One Direction revealed to his online devotees that he was attacked by the guards manning the door at The Silver Fox while on a date night with his girlfriend Maya Henry.
The 26-year-old British singer/songwriter claimed in an Instagram Story that he was jumped by three bouncers after he and his girlfriend were stopped at the door. Clearly annoyed by what happened, "The X Factor" alum threatened to take them to court.
"Three of your bouncers just jump me for no reason whilst I was grabbing my ID," he wrote in a now-deleted note where he tagged the club. Without detailing the incident, he cursed out, "I took pics of the whole thing, look forward to seeing you in court, a******s."
Liam Payne went public with "Hangin' with Los Henrys" star Maya Henry in September this year after reportedly keeping their relationship low-key for months. He previously dated 36-year-old Cheryl Cole until 2018. They welcomed their first child, a son named Bear, in 2017.
He never discussed the reason why he split with Cheryl, but hinted that his steamy duet with Rita Ora, "For You" for 2018's movie "Fifty Shades Freed", led to the breakdown of his relationship with his baby mama. "(My duet with Rita) didn't do very much for my personal life," he told Closer magazine.
Payne was rumored to start dating Henry when she was underage. "Every article about Liam's girlfriend says she's 19 when she's actually 18," an individual wrote on Twitter. "This is intentional because when fabricating this ridiculous PR campaign for her they said that they've been together for a year, which would mean that Liam was dating a 17 y/o." Payne quickly responded, "19 don't believe everything you read on the internet."
