Liam Payne has respectfully asked for his fans to stop gathering outside his house, after friends of his gave away his address by posting pics.
The One Direction heart-throb has used Twitter as a platform to ask for Directioners to give him a little space to breathe before, and has indicated that he feels guilty about not wanting to take a picture with his admirers when they congregate by his abode.
He wrote tonight: "I know my friends have tweeted a lot of pictures of my house the past few days but can people please stop coming and waiting outside (sic)".
The star went on: "I'd just like to be able to walk outside as everyone does and enjoy time with my friends, not feel bad for not wanting to take a picture".
Liam, who like his bandmates is enjoying some down-time before their 2014 schedule really gets going, also apologised to anyone he's been rude to over the whole thing.
"Sorry if I've been rude to anyone but I've come to realise if I take one picture more people keep coming everyday xxx hope everyone's good".
The band had a ridiculous 2013; going on a globe-straddling tour, securing another hit album with Midnight Memories and even releasing a movie, the documentary/concert-film This Is Us.
2014 has already got off on a sour note, with the lads having to deny claims that they are at war.
poor baby. LEAVE LIAM ALONE.
