Liam Payne Shows Off Ripped Abs in Sexy Poolside Photo
Former One Direction member Liam Payne caused quite a stir on social media last Saturday when he shared a steamy shirtless photo by the pool. In the picture, the 29-year-old singer flaunts his chiseled abs to his 25.4 million Instagram followers, showing off his sun-kissed skin in the process.
The photo features Liam wearing narrow-legged black sweatpants, with their bottoms tucked into a pair of long white socks. The controversial addition to his outfit was the white Crocs he decided to pair with the socks.
Mark Wahlberg Impressed by Liam’s Abs
Movie star Mark Wahlberg was one of the first to comment on Liam’s post, leaving no less than four comments on the photo. He initially wrote “Beast” and added three fire emojis, followed by some celebratory and heart emojis. Finally, he ended his cheerleading with two clapping emojis.
The post features Liam with his head turned away from the camera, showing off his chiseled cheekbones that have been the focus of recent fan speculation of him having had buccal fat removed. In his hand, he holds a refreshing drink to enjoy under the sun.

Liam also shared a group photo alongside the pool photo, featuring him snuggling up with singer TY Dolla Sign and songwriter Jamie Scott. He rocked a gray beanie, a black T-shirt with a bold graphic, and black jeans, and accessorized the outfit with a pair of white and red sneakers and a chunky silver chain.
The former One Direction star captioned the post, “Dude… Sorry you asked for this,” tagging TY Dolla Sign in the post. Fans and friends were quick to show their appreciation for the steamy shot, with one fan even crediting TY Dolla Sign as the inspiration behind the photo.
