Music mogul Simon Cowell took a dig at singer Liam Payne after he praised the loyalty of the other members of One Direction.

Cowell praised “loyalty” of the other members of One Direction -- Louis Tomlinson, Harry Styles and Niall Horan -- but didn’t mention Payne, who recently signed a solo record deal with Capitol Records, reports femalefirst.co.uk.

“We’re in touch with them all. The great thing about all these boys - well not all of them but most of them - they are incredibly loyal and you don’t always expect that,” Cowell said.
