So you know how Simon Cowell maybe-potentially-might've thrown shade at Liam Payne and suggested he might not be as loyal as the other One Direction lads following the news of his Capitol UK solo record deal? Well it might also have something to do with the fact he's left Modest! management to sign with David Beckham's team over at Doyen Global.
Yup - there'd been whispers Big Payno might've penned a deal with David's lot (the similarities don't end at the fact they share the same face, eh?); and now the company themselves have confirmed it on Twitter.
Announcing that they're gonna be working together, Doyen Global said: "Pleased to announce the launch of our new music division at @DoyenGlobal & welcome @RealLiamPayne to our family...Excited to be working together!" [sic].
Yeah, so this all comes after Simon sort of forgot to praise Liam when discussing the 1D lads in an America's Got Talent conference call, saying: "We're in touch with them all. The great thing about all these boys - well not all of them but most of them - they are incredibly loyal and you don't always expect that.
"Niall, Harry Louis - amazing."
