Liam Payne has spoke out about a bad time in his life, when he was bullied at school.
The One Direction star has made no secret of the fact that he was once a victim of bullying, and has always been very much behind 1D’s anti-bullying campaign.
Now, Liam has opened up about how he was targeted by some of the older people in his school.
He said: “When I was at school I was bullied by a few people who were much older than me. I was in year eight and they were sixth-formers. I went and told my parents and my teachers, but it didn’t stop so I had to sort it out myself.”
Liam can be seen as an inspiration to many people who suffer from bullying, as he took action and did something about it.
Liam continued: “I went to camp to learn how to box, and it gave me the confidence to know that if I needed to, I could fight back and I could stand up to anyone.
“Then I got this guy I knew, who was in his early twenties, to pretend to be my big brother and pick me up from school. And as soon as they saw him it suddenly stopped.”
We think Liam is amazing, to have gone through all that and be where he is today! We’re proud of you Liam!
