Well that would have been awkward!

The ladies of Little Mix are getting ready to drop their album Get Weird next week, but if not for Urban Dictionary they might have gotten a lot weirder!

Who says you can't be friends with your ex?!

Earlier this week, the One Direction cutie's childhood love Abigail Crawshaw stopped by his concert at the Metro Radio Arena in the United Kingdom. LOVES it!

It seems the two have had quite the lengthy history that dates back before the heartthrob was a contestant on the X Factor.

Has fame made Liam Payne sick?!

Well, according to recent reports, stress from being on the road is what caused the One Direction member to have a meltdown and cancel the group's concert in Belfast, Ireland on Tuesday.

Oh no!

A source shared:

"The pressures of fame and being on the road for two years have made Liam ill. He was devastated about letting everyone down, especially the fans, but he wasn't physically able to get on stage. He had a complete meltdown."

That's so sad! Now, we wouldn't be entirely shocked if this source is correct since the 1D boys announced earlier this summer that they would be taking some time off next year.

Unfortunately, it's since been speculated that the British cuties may not even return after their 2016 hiatus. Whomp, whomp.

In a recent interview, the X Factor judge revealed that he dished out some parenting advice to the One Direction star — that he follows in his daily life.

He shared:

"I just said, 'Enjoy it.' If I had been his age and someone had said, 'You're going to have a baby,' I'm not sure how I would have coped with it. But he did call me and I said, 'When you've embraced it, you'll be amazed how much you are going to love it. It will change your life for the better.'"

We're not sure what we love more, Simon's advice or the fact that the heartthrob still turns to the TV personality for advice!

As we previously reported, the-23-year-old confirmed he was expecting a baby with Briana Jungwirth back in August.

However, the 56-year-old noted that if he could become accustomed to being a proud papa then the British cutie will do just fine.
