Liam Payne hits out at the media for 'focusing' on Justin Beiber's drug-abuse revelation
Liam Payne has no time for Justin Beiber haters. He lashed out at the media for focusing solely on Justin Bieber's 'drug use' after young singer wrote about his struggles on Instagram.
He took to his Twitter account to call the coverage so far "disrespectful".
He also expressed his disappointment over the news focussing solely on Beiber's drug use comments and not the mental health issues that he raised in his post.
Payne said: “So this is the one thing the worlds media picks up on after all he said ...? Can anyone else see the problem here…?”

Justin Beiber posted a few days ago about his struggle with mental health issues.
“I started doing pretty heavy drugs at 19 and abused all my relationships. I became resentful, disrespectful to women, and angry. I became distant to everyone who loved me, and I was hiding behind a shell of a person that I had become.”
