Liam Payne has confessed that he once considered ‘taking his own life’ during his time in One Direction.
He made the heartbreaking admission during the show Ant Middleton And Liam Payne: Straight Talking (according to The Sun), saying that fame ‘very nearly killed him’.
“For some certain circumstances I’m quite lucky to be here still,’ he said on . “There are times when that level of loneliness and people getting into you every day, it’s like, “When will this end?” That’s almost nearly killed me a couple of times.”
When asked whether he had ever experienced suicidal thoughts, Liam said: “Yeah, when I’ve been in a bad place. It’s one hundred per cent, you know. There’s no point denying it — it’s definitely been on the menu a couple of times in my life.”
“There’s only one thing you control within that situation and that is you. Just do today. Get on with that bit and then there’ll be another hurdle in a few months, a few weeks or maybe even the next day.’”
