Liam Payne (also known as: 20% of One Direction, Liam 'bring the Payne' Payne, and The One That Ill-Advisedly Shaved His Head) went for a curry on Boxing Day, because that's what platinum-selling artists do. No leftover turkey for Payne-y. No grazing all day on pistachios and weird Lidl biscuits.
"Huh," you're thinking. "I am going to go ahead and assume that the 19-year-old millionaire probably picked up the tab for that one." WRONG. As The Mirror reports, Liam let his own Mum and Dad pay for a curry at the Penn Tandoori in Wolverhampton. Wave goodbye to that clean-cut image, Liam. We know the truth now.
"He pre-booked about two weeks in advance for the dinner and they came last Christmas as well, so it’s become a bit of a tradition with them now," said manager Jay Uddin, speaking to the paper. “Liam’s a regular and he used to visit the restaurant lots with his parents before he became famous. He loves his chicken tikka bhuna.
“There were quite a few fans in the restaurant and everyone recognised him so after his meal was finished, they asked him to take pictures, which he was happy to do.
“He might be a millionaire but I think his dad might have paid for it. No matter how famous you are, I think we all like to let mum and dad pay." Wise words from the manager of the Penn Tandoori in Wolverhampton, there.
