Liam Payne Speaks: Is One Direction Splitting Up??

Last week, legions of teenage girls nearly suffered premature heart attacks upon hearing the fateful reports suggesting that One Direction was splitting up forever.

However, we hadn't heard confirmation from any of the 1D members - until now.

TMZ caught up with Liam Payne at the airport and questioned the boy band member on whether the foursome are actually calling it quits.

"No, no, no, no, no," said Liam.

Well! I think he's made that clear.

The paps also asked if there was any chance of Zayn Malik returning to the band.

"Who knows?" replied Liam. "He's just doing his thing."

So I guess that's still up in the air.

However, he did seem to hint that he and his former band mate were on good terms and appeared upset when he realized he'd forgotten Zayn's birthday. 

When asked whether he'd welcome Zayn back if he wanted to return, he confirmed that he would.

"Of course, I love Zayn, he's great," he said.

Aww. Well, it's nice to know there's no bad blood between these two.

And while we're relieved to hear that the band will remain intact for the time being, it seems Liam has been making some music of his own during their hiatus.

Yesterday, the heartthrob posted a video that included a new song he wrote:

Little Song I wrote for fun yesterday

He may have called it a "little song" he "wrote for fun," but Liam is clearly lip syncing to a previously recorded track.

Could the singer have designs on taking his show on the road as a solo artist?
