One Directioner Liam Payne has sparked a Twitter furore amongst his die-hard fans after he was snapped smoking a cigarette on Monday.
The Story of my Life singer was caught puffing away on a nicotine stick whilst filming with the band on Clevedon Pier in Somerset.
Eager fans who raced to the seaside spot to catch a glimpse of the megaband were disappointed to see their idol puffing.
"You broke my heart.... @ Real_Liam_Payne why? Why are you smoking? Stop please," (sic) tweeted one fan.
"nnoooooo liam please stop smoking... :( its so not good for you ..." (sic) added another.
"plz stop u know its bad for your health i really dont want you to die early," (sic) said another fan.
Some fans decided he must be smoking to lose weight after trolls labelled him fat last week.
"Dearest @ Real_Liam_Payne I'am fat too, but it doesn't mean I need to smoke to lose weight more.. so please stop smoking.. please??" wrote one fan.
"please stop smoking. We love you Liam. You're not fat xx'" said another.
Other fans just refused to believe it full stop.
"He's not smoking liam wouldn't do that! He's not that type of person! It's photoshopped!" said one.
But this isn't the first time the gorgeous boybander has been caught puffing.
Back in November One Direction fans kicked up a fuss (for a change!) when Niall Horan shared a picture of himself hanging out with bandmate Liam Payne on Instagram .
It might have looked like a casual moment of bromance but the eagle-eyed and omniscient fandom noticed Liam was holding something in his right hand.
Liam appeared to be clasping a lit cigarette between his fingers as he posed for the snap – looking more and more like David Beckham with every day that passes.
He's not the first member of the boyband to be caught with a ciggie in hand, as Zayn Malik and Louis Tomlinson were both snapped appearing to smoke.
are you too beautiful to die, ontd?
