Liam was caught on Tuesday indulging in his old habit after taking a break from shooting a music video for his new single, Get Low, in London.

Photos showed the singer lighting up a cigarette before heading back to filming.

The former X Factor star sported his usual street style in a black bomber jacket and jeans, a baggy white t-shirt and of course his statement gold bling.

Fans took to Twitter to slam the star for going back on his word.

One wrote: “Why are you smoking again? Please stop it!”

“Ummm @LiamPayne.. didn’t you say you QUIT smoking,” another said, alongside a angry face emoji.

A third tweeted: “He said he “quit” smoking… for his son… What happened? @LiamPayne.”




Another begged: “Please think about your son and stop smoking @LiamPayne.”


Earlier in the year Liam told Kiss FM: “I stopped smoking, that’s the best thing ever.

“Honestly, anyone out there who’s trying to stop smoking, just do it, honestly.

“I just did cold turkey, I knew my son was coming, and I was like, I’m not gonna be smoking with my son, that’s not right.”

He went on to explain that the reason behind him quitting was his son.

Liam added: “My life’s not my own anymore, now, it’s not mine to decide, so smoking had to go.”

Cheryl’s baby daddy recently revealed he’s loving every second of being a dad.

Talking to French music channel Just Music, the singer said: “I’m happy to be a dad, it’s an incredible thing. I give my son as much love as I have received from my parents.

“I also have an incredible girlfriend, she’s a great mum and I could not have been happier to have her as the mother of my child.”

Despite being extremely busy building his solo music career it seems Liam could be making daddy duties his main priority soon as Chezza has recently returned to work.

She got back on set for a new L’Oreal shoot and of course she looked totally gorgeous.

Showing a pic of her behind the scenes Cheryl captioned the post: “Back at work.”
