Liam Payne has claimed a naked photograph that leaked online over the weekend is not of him.
The One Direction hunk, 21, hit the headlines on Saturday after an explicit image of a man sitting on a bed with another gentleman wearing nothing but a black cap began circulating on Twitter.
However, the singer took to the social networking site last night to shoot down rumours that the nude man was him and address claims he's gay.
He tweeted: "Wow as if people think that weird photo going around is actually me lol think id rather tweet a full frontal than have people look at that
I'm 100% not homophobic. But I'm also 100% not gay so when somebody says I am I'm gunna say I'm not which does not make me a homophobe (sic)."
