One Direction's Liam Payne has taken to twitter to hit back at speculation that he is dating fellow X Factor alumni Leona Lewis.

Yep, taking a break from touching his paynis, meeting the Queen and flying all over the globe - Liam clearly decided that enough was enough, and took it upon himself to clear up a few rumours.

"Okay bored of constant news articles," he wrote. "I'm not dating Leona ... My YouTube channel isn't for a solo career and I didn't insult Kim k...Pow."

POW. (On a completely different note, have you considered getting that as a tattoo, Liam? It would match Zayn's 'Zap' just wonderfully.)

ANYWAY, we're loving Liam's to-the-point no-nonsense approach - with just a hint of sass, we might add. Louis Tomlinson is clearly rubbing off on his fellow bandmates.

So, it's official. Liam is *not* dating Leona. Now, Harry - perhaps you'd like to enlighten us on the whole 'Haylor' situation?
