We already know Simon Cowell ain't best pleased with Liam Payne's new solo deal. The issue? He's ditched Simon and One Direction's label SYCO in favour of signing with Capitol UK. Not massively ideal.
ANYWAY, now someone reckons Si thinks Liam *and* former 1D fella Zayn Malik have 'turned' on him with their
Chatting to Closer mag, a sneaky source-type said: "Simon feels Liam and Zayn should have been more respectful to him considering he launched their careers. He's still in touch with Liam as he's dating Cheryl, but relations with Zayn are tense.
"He feels they've turned on him."
This all comes after Uncle Si recently commented on Liam's new solo deal with rival label Capitol UK, telling The Sun: "It is a bit annoying if I am honest with you - mainly because it is a another label who has now got your artist who you worked with for so many years.
"But that is the music business, unfortunately. I don't think anyone else from the band will do that.We had spoken a lot - him and I - about what he wanted to do next.
"I was teasing him saying: 'If you come up with a great song Liam make sure it is for you and don't give it away. When you're ready I am ready.'
"So I was a bit surprised. Of course there is a part of you that goes: 'Maybe we should have had the conversation.' That maybe is my fault but it has happened now."
Oh, bloody hell.
