Liam Payne Consoles Directioners: "It's Okay To Be Sad And Upset"
The singer couldn't help but try and cheer up the fans that are taking the news of Zayn's departure hard...
Despite his initial silence on the news, Liam took to Twitter last night to express his true feelings:
"In light of recent events I think this is important to say. For the past five years now I've been part of something so special I don't think any of us really understand, something that can mean the world to people and put a smile on the face of our fans even in the darkest times," he said.
Adding: "To a lot of people it's just a bunch of silly kids in a band but to the people involved it means so much more. This last week has been some of the worst times, possibly the worst it's something we are all deeply saddened by."
"It's sad to think for the time being we won't grace the stage as five bros or have the same fun on a tour bus or laughs in a hotel together that we have over the years but I'm super sure us and zayn will always remain the closest friends."
"I guess what I'm really trying to say is it's far from over. When we very 1st became successful we all agreed that one direction had become much bigger than each individual member that's why I feel like right now it's ok to be sad and upset but I do ask everyone who is a fan of us to please keep ur faith in us I'm sure there's a lot more to come all love
We're sure the fans appreciate the message, though the throwback pic he posted beforehand is just as good!
