liam_payne_denies_gay_fake_photosOne Direction member Liam Payne has responded to claims that he’s in “leaked” nude photos or that he is gay.

The grainy pictures show a naked man resembling Liam wearing a cap and covering his genitals while sitting on bed along with another man. A night-time cityscape is visible through the window.

One of the pictures, believed to be photoshopped fakes, shows the man engaging in a sex act with another man.

The 21-year-old singer denied on Sunday that he was the person in the images. “Wow as if people think that weird photo going around is actually me lol,” he tweeted, adding, “think id rather tweet a full frontal than have people look at that.”

When some of his followers criticised him for the way he worded the comment, implying disgust with homosexuality, Liam defended himself in a follow-up tweet.

liam_payne_denies_gay_fake_nude_photos“I’m 100% not homophobic. But I’m also 100% not gay so when somebody says I am I’m gunna say I’m not which does not make me a homophobe,” he insisted.

In January, Liam was slammed for posting a tweet in which he expressed support for homophobic Duck Dynasty reality star Willie Robertson and his “family values.” He later clarified that “being a fan of someones show and the way they still hold a family together doesnt mean i am ok with all they say.”

He also pranked fans into believing that he’d posted a full frontal nude picture of himself with his crotch blurred on a yacht, but later revealed that he’d actually worn a rolled up black swimming shorts in the original photo.

Last week, fellow One Direction band mate Niall Horan laughed off a video that appeared to show him kissing songwriter Julian Bunett in a Las Vegas nightclub.
