We’re all still recovering from the news that Liam Payne and Louis Tomlinson secretly hated each other when One Direction first started. And now, the “Strip That Down” crooner just called his former bandmate “a proper diva.”

When the 26-year-old was reminiscing about the band’s sense of style, he revealed that each member had their own look. And it sounds like Louis was a little possessive over his.

“We all had our own little thing. I was the lumberjack. I can’t remember what Zayn [Malik]‘s thing was, but Louis’ was always stripes. Louis had a number of things actually, he was a proper diva about it, like, he had stripes [and] he had them suspender-type things or whatever they’re called,” he told Capital Breakfast. “So everybody had their little thing and so if you started going into someone else’s thing it was like fighting with your sister … I was just like, ‘Right, no stripes,’ and then I just never wore stripes.”

As fans know, the singer recently shocked us all when he revealed that there was some major feuding going on between him and Louis when the band first got together.

“When we were in the band — because [Louis] was the oldest and because I had been singing for quite a little bit of time, we both got put into a weird position because he wanted to be the leader and I was doing my thing and wanted to too,” Liam told Hits Radio. “So at first we didn’t get on at all. We absolutely hated each other, it was so funny.”

The 1D heartthrob explained that although things were “really bad” between them, they were able to “hide it well” from the rest of the world.

“It was crazy. In the end we kind of just settled that we’d both do different parts,” he continued.

But don’t worry, because things may have been rough between them in the beginning, but Liam added that he and Louis are super close now!

“I speak a lot to Louis. He’s been through so much. We’ve been through so much together as well,” he told the radio station. “If he has a problem he’ll call me. He sent me his new single and it’s pretty good actually.”

We’re so relieved that they were able to work everything out in the end!
