Louis Tomlinson dodges question about One Direction ‘beef’

Louis Tomlinson’s lips are sealed.

The former One Direction member declined to comment when asked in a new interview about Liam Payne’s recent “beef” with Zayn Malik.

“So the fishing has already started,” Tomlinson, 30, said when the feud was brought up on Wednesday on “The Project” in Australia. “I see what you do.”

The lead singer of “Two of Us” then played coy, turning the conversation into boy band fame by saying, “I’m immensely proud, as I know Liam is…of those days, of course. It was unbelievable to especially to do at such a young age. Great memories.”

But the show’s co-hosts didn’t let it die there.

When the “X Factor” alum was asked if it’s “annoying to have to answer questions retrospectively,” he clarified that he’s “more than happy to be talking about” One Direction.

“Just when you were talking about the beef earlier, it sounded like you were ready to cause some commotion, that’s all I’m saying,” Tomlinson explained.

The hosts continued with more One Direction questions, asking the English native about the “Harry Styles and the Cult of Celebrity” course at Texas State University.

“That should be you, shouldn’t it?” Waleed Aly asked.

Tomlinson accused the ‘Project’ hosts of trying to ‘fire up’.

“To be honest, I’m not really interested in a course on me,” Tomlinson replied. “You sound very interested, to be honest. Maybe you should sign up.”

The interview came a month after Payne, 28, made headlines for bashing Malik, 29, on an episode of Logan Paul’s “Impaulsive” podcast.

“Before we get too deep into this, there are many reasons why I hate Zayn, and there are many reasons why I will always be on his side,” the “Strip That Down” lead singer said in June. about Malik’s “different upbringing”.

“You can always look at the guy for where he is and say, ‘Oh yeah, whatever, that guy’s ad,'” Payne explained. “But at the end of the day… you understand what he’s been through.”
