One Direction's Liam Payne hopes to remain friends with Danielle Peazer

One Direction tour

One Direction star Liam Payne has said he hopes to remain friends with ex Danielle Peazer.

Confirming the split, which was reported last month, Liam told The Sun this week: “Danielle is great, I really hope we can still be friends.

"I bought her a car for her birthday, but she really isn’t fussed by money or fame.

“She was talking about dyeing her hair blonde and I said she should. She said she couldn’t afford it – which was mad. She wouldn't even ask me for the money for that.”

Liam also revealed that he was "worried" about his One Direction bandmate One Direction, with the singer apparently struggling to cope with the group's celebrity life style.

Two years after competing in the X Factor, Liam says that Zayn is still getting accustomed to all of the screaming fans.

He said: “The only person I really worry about is Zayn, because I don’t think he’s quite accustomed to all of this. He’s had a terrible time on Twitter, as did Danielle.

“I don’t think he’s quite adjusted to it yet, I’m sure he’ll get it. He’s my best mate. I’ve got to look out for him."

Liam added: “It’s mad to think I didn’t know them two years ago and now they’re my best mates.”
