Liam Payne EARLY YEARS (1993 – 2010)

Liam James Payne was born on August 29, 1993 in a small town in England, Wolverhampton, West Midlands, United Kingdom. His mother is Karen (nurse, receptionist) and his father is Geoff Payne (aircraft mechanic), and he has two sisters, Ruth and Nicola Payne. Since he was a premature baby, he had to be checked up many times. This lasted until he was four years old, when his kidney disease was discovered, which has since been cured. He started singing when he was 6 years old. At the age of 12, he took boxing lessons because he was also a victim of bullying at school: Payne had no friends. No one went to his 10th birthday, which, according to the singer, affected him for a long time.

In addition, sports were always a part of his life, during his high school years running was what he did, which is why he got up even at 5 in the morning. He originally attended St. Peter’s College, but graduated from a high school in Wolverhampton, where he majored in music.

X-FACTOR (2010 – 2011)

Liam first entered X-Factor series 5 in 2008 when he was just 14 years old. He successfully made it to the “mentors’ house”, but there Simon Cowell thought that the boy was not ready for the competition, so he asked him to try again in two years. Liam agreed with the decision, as he was aware that at the age of 14 it would have been difficult for him to take the obstacles. Contrary to Liam Simon’s advice, he wanted to start already the following year, but the age limit was raised to 16, so according to the rules he could not try.

In 2010, the time finally came, the boy returned to the X-Factor, where he performed the song Cry Me a River, which was awarded by the jury with 4 yeses. In “Tábor” he sang “Stop Crying Your Heart Out” by Oasis. Three of the mentors liked it, but it didn’t win over Simon.

On the advice of Nicole Scherzinger, the judges decided that Liam could continue in the competition if he went on as a team, so he suggested that the five boys (Niall Horan, Liam Payne, Harry Styles, Zayn Malik and Louis Tomlinson) form a boy band, because although they are talented, but they are not very successful individually. As a result, the boys were given two weeks to get used to it, and during that time they became friends and got to know each other, after which they started practicing together.

Since the band had to be given a name, Harry came up with One Direction, since they didn’t know each other until now, but they are heading in the same direction, in the singing career. Simon Cowell, their mentor, liked the idea, as did the other four boys, so the band was named One Direction. The first song they covered in acoustic form was Torn, by Natalie Imbrugalia. Simon took them on to the live show.

The boys began to achieve more and more success and gained more and more fans, not only within the country, but also internationally. One Direction clearly caused mass hysteria. They left many talents behind during the show, but their popularity was not enough to win, as they only finished in third place, although that was enough for them. After the show ended, they took part in the X-Factor tour together with the other performers, which took place between February and April 2011 in several English and Irish locations.

After The X-Factor, One Direction was unstoppable. Their third place was immediately followed by a contract with Simon Cowell’s label, Sycó, and Modest Management! took care of their careers. They have released five chart-topping, globally acclaimed and beloved albums: Up All Night (2011), Take Me Home (2012), Midnight Memories (2013), Four (2014) and Made in the AM (2015). One Direction broke the 58-year-old record on the Billboard Hot 200: they became the only boy band in world history to have all five of their albums debut at number one.

Over the course of five years, the boy band released hits such as What Makes You Beautiful, One Thing, Kiss You, Live While We’re Young, Little Things, Best Song Ever, Story of my Life, Night Changes, Drag Me Down and Perfect.

During the Take Me Home tour, 1D covered the Wheatus – Teenage Dirtbag song, and for Red Nose Day they recorded a studio version of One Way or Another, all proceeds from which were donated to the organization.

The band has conquered every imaginable career highlight: they started as a support band for Big Time Rush, but soon became more popular than the main production itself, so they went on their own tour in the States. They quickly outgrew the arenas, so during Where We Are they also performed in stadiums. Their last tour before the break, On The Road Again, was organized only in stadiums, so they performed in front of 50-60 thousand people night after night.

On March 25, 2015, midway through the tour, Zayn Malik announced his departure from the band. According to his statement at the time, he couldn’t handle the associated stress and wanted to live a bit like normal 22-year-old guys. The band stated that they would stand by the brand and continue their career as a quartet, and they set their goal to record the best record of their lives for the fans: Made in the AM. Payne took over Malik’s parts on the tour. “Liam sings the high notes with ease. He’s fantastic during every show,” Styles said.

Among others, the band took home awards such as BRITs (6 pcs), American Music Award (7 pcs), MTV EMA (11 pcs), and Billboard Music Award (5 pcs), MTV VMA (4 pcs), Teen Choice’s Awards (27 pieces). As of April 2013, they were among the richest people under the age of 21 in the world with about $41.2 million. In 2014, they were already in second place on the Forbes list, and by 2015 this number had increased to 130 million, and in 2016 they closed the year with 282 million.

They have published five books, several perfumes, and three movies (Up All Night: The Live Tour, One Direction: This Is Us, One Direction: Where We Are – The Concert Film).

In December 2015, the band said goodbye to their persistent and loyal fan base with their History recording: they went on an indefinite hiatus, and everyone continued their music careers solo.

Payne was one of One Direction’s most diligent lyricists: he was involved in the writing of almost all of the tracks.

One of Payne’s first ideas was to pursue a career as a producer and retire from singing. Nevertheless, on July 22, 2016, he announced that he had officially signed with the British Capitol Records and terminated all his contracts with Simon Cowell, which affected the father of the X-Factor sensitively. Payne also signed with David Beckham’s management company to promote his solo work.

Payne has reportedly worked with Juicy J, DJ Mustard, Ed Sheeran, Pharell Williams and Miguel during that time. At the end of 2015, he greeted us on the cover of Attitude, who also named him the sexiest man of the year. Here he gave his first interview without his bandmates.

While he was recording his album, there were rumors that his new girlfriend, Cheryl Cole, 10 years his senior, was expecting a baby. Not long after, the couple appeared together at a red carpet event, where it became clear that Cheryl was carrying a child. The baby boy was born on March 22 and was named Bear Payne.

However, the blessing of children did not stop Payne, who is active solo: after posting continuous studio pictures, he officially confirmed on May 11 that his single written with Ed Sheeran will debut on May 19 under the title Strip That Down. Liam continues the RNB sound.

During his preliminary promotional tour, he confirmed the news on the radio that, like Harry Styles, he will also go on tour this year. On July 6, his joint song with Zed, Get Low, was released, which has a completely different sound world compared to his previous song. On October 20, he debuted his second solo song, Bedroom Floor, which was also written by Charlie Puth.

In January 2018, his joint song with Rita Ora, For You, was released, which is the soundtrack to Fifty Shades Free. In April, he released a song with J Balvin called Familiar. His debut EP hit the shelves on August 24 under the name First Time, and the first single of the same name featuring French Montana was also released at the same time. The EP disc contains only 4 songs in total, but nevertheless, it achieved great success in the United States.

Lennon collaborated with Stella on Jonas Blue’s Polaroid on October 5, 2018. In May 2019, he became the first global brand ambassador of the German brand Hugo Boss. The first Hugo x Liam Payne collection was released at Berlin Fashion Week, which took place in July 2020.

The first single from his first album, released on September 18, 2019, is Stack It Up. He later announced that his first album was called LP1, which was released on December 6, 2019.

In January 2020, Payne appeared in a fragrance campaign for Hugo Boss to promote the perfume called Hugo Now. In April 2020, he collaborated with Alesso, their song Midnight received positive reviews. In the same month, he started to be active on YouTube, where he awaited his fans with weekly videos. His second collection with Hugo Boss was completed in May 2020. The predominantly menswear collection included t-shirts, shirts, shorts, hoodies, sweatpants and a sneaker. On October 30, 2020, he released the Christmas single Naughty List, which featured Dixie D’Amelio.

Liam’s charity face painting at the Believe In Magic gala


One Direction has already helped people around the world. Their first major trip was to Africa, where they helped the needy people living there by auctioning off the clothes they wore there and sending the proceeds to the poor in Africa. For the subsequent Red Nose Day charity gala, they also made a video of their trip to Africa, to which they sang the song Blondie – One Way Or Another, which they also performed at the party. For this video, they also wore the event’s famous red nose during the video clip. In addition, the boys also use their acquaintance for good purposes, since they have already collected money for donations for several other organizations by advertising the given company. And most of the time they themselves donate the amount received from their tour, which is not small, since they make hundreds of millions of dollars during a world tour.

As a member of One Direction, Payne also supported the Comic Relief program and is an enthusiastic supporter of UNICEF. Teamed up with motorsport star Eddie Jordan in support of UK charity CLIC Sargent. Payne is an ambassador for the charity Trekstock. His original organizational campaign in 2013 raised $784,198, and his 2015 campaign raised an additional $211,237. He also gave a much-needed boost to a £6m youth project, The Youth Zone, in his hometown of Wolverhampton.

He also participated in the Believe in Magic gala, which supported chronically ill children. His bandmate Louis Tomlinson donated £10,000 to paint Payne’s face and also gave £2m to Believe in Magic, while he and Payne combined for more than £5m. Band members Niall Horan and Harry Styles were unable to attend the event, but they also donated to Believe in Magic.

Payne is pro-choice. In May 2019, amid the passage of anti-abortion legislation in Alabama, she said she believed it would completely strip women of their rights and ownership over their bodies.

In May 2020, Payne expressed her support for the Black Lives Matter movement, urging fans to educate themselves and donate. He participated in the Black Lives Matter protests in London.


In 2010, she met Liam’s first official girlfriend, Danielle Peazer, whom she met on the set of The X-Factor. Their relationship was soon made public. Their long relationship ended in May 2013. In the summer of 2013, Liam got together with an old good friend, Sophia Smiths. However, after two years of being together, they waved goodbye to each other in October 2015. In February 2016, it was announced that he and Cheryl Cole, one of the mentors of the British X-Factor, were forming a couple. Their joint child was born on May 22, 2017, named Bear Payne. The couple announced their separation in July 2018. He started dating model Maya Henry in 2019, and they announced their engagement in August 2020. In June 2021, Payne announced that they were going their separate ways, and they reunited shortly after their breakup.

Payne previously lived in Malibu and Surrey, but both homes were put up for sale in 2020 and early 2021. He currently rents a seven-bedroom palace in Buckinghamshire. His net worth is estimated at £47 million.

Liam is a keen supporter of the West Bromwich Albion football team.
