Who is Liam Payne?
Liam James Payne was born in Heath Town, in the West Midlands of England, on 29 August 1993 – his zodiac sign is Virgo and he holds British nationality.
He was raised alongside his sisters Ruth and Nicola by their father Geoff Payne who was a fitter, and their mother Karen who was a nurse.
Liam had problems early on in life as his doctors discovered that one of his kidneys was dysfunctional, so Liam had to take 16 injections every morning and evening at the age of four. He eventually recovered completely, and then became interested in sports, running specifically, and became a cross country runner while attending high school – at one point, Liam was the third best runner in England; he also practiced boxing to fight his school bullies.
After matriculation from St Peter’s Collegiate School, Liam enrolled at Wolverhampton College’s Paget Road School.
He entered the music competition “The X Factor” for the first time in 2008, but Simon Cowell sent him home advising him to return after two years which Liam did – Simon then helped Liam, Zayn Malik, Louis Tomlinson, Niall Horan and Harry Styles found the band One Direction, and signed it to his music agency.
