Louis Tomlinson Got Help From Simon Cowell During a Pretty Scary Moment

Louis Tomlinson Got Help From Simon Cowell During a Pretty Scary Moment

Aww, we love how much of a father figure Simon Cowell has become to the One Direction guys!

The reality TV judge and producer recently shared a story about a time Louis Tomlinson‘s nerves got the best of him before a show.

“When somebody goes a little bit crazy, my way of dealing with things is to deal with it straight away, face-to-face,” Simon told Billboard about the incident. “I sat him down and went, ‘Look, we’ve all been there, I’ve been there. You’re in a fantastic place right now.’ … And then we laughed it off, he sent me a very nice text afterwards and from that moment we had this incredible bond.”

Simon also revealed that he told Louis – the last of the guys to launch his solo career – not to feel too much pressure and to “always be true to yourself with the music.”

Louis and I, you know, we’ve got this very close bond,” Simon elaborated. “When we heard about this current record, I remember calling him and going, ‘Louis, this record is special’ – and I could not be happier.”

“Actually, with all the boys, if I’m being honest with you,” Simon added. “They’ve worked for this. But yeah, you do feel a little bit like a proud dad when you see all five of them doing well now.”

Simon put Louis, Harry Styles, Niall Horan, Liam Payne, and Zayn Malik together in a group after they all auditioned individually for The X Factor UK in 2010.

The day the world was changed forever.

We’re pretty much convinced that the real bromance of One Direction is all about Louis Tomlinson and Niall Horan, because Louis just revealed something huge!

Speaking with 92.3 AMP Radio, the “Back To You” singer revealed that the only guy he’d absolutely, 100% trust to babysit his son Freddie would be Niall.

“I don’t know who I would least trust to be quite honest because actually, all the boys are quite good with kids, honestly,” Louis shared, however, Niall is the one he trusts the most.

“I’m going to go off what I’ve seen and I’ve seen Niall with little Theo quite a lot, which is his brother’s baby, so I’m going to go with Niall,” he says.

“Hopefully, he doesn’t let me down in this theoretical plan. I haven’t seen Liam — I’m not saying he’s not great, I’m just going off what I’ve seen!”

One Direction had some pretty big moments in their career and Liam Payne has narrowed down all the amazing moments to his favorite.

The “Strip It Down” singer spoke to Buzzfeed recently, and revealed that One Direction’s first concert at Madison Square Garden was his absolute favorite.

“We popped out of the floor and it was just the most amazing feeling ever, knowing that we were in Madison Square Garden,” Liam reminisced.

And that wasn’t the only thing amazing about that moment.

Liam adds, “Our album — we’d just broke the record for debuting at #1 on the charts, so that was a real fun memory of mine.”

Simon Cowell Says One Direction Without Harry Styles 'Wouldn't Be the Same'

Is a One Direction without Harry Styles a possibility in the future?

Simon Cowell, who created the band back in 2010, says it’s definitely possible, but “it wouldn’t be the same.”

“You know, it’s fun being out there on your own, but what I hope is going to happen is that they remember now how much fun it was being in a group,” Simon told The Sun. “I always believe that you don’t make rules, you break the rules. So there’s nothing to stop them, if they want to, getting together for a tour, for an album.”

“I made it absolutely clear, obviously, ‘We’re in,’” he added.

Niall Horan, Zayn Malik, Liam Payne, Louis Tomlinson, and Harry all went their separate ways and embarked on their own solo projects just over a year ago.

Louis has recently revealed the the guys are still his “best mates,” and in May, Harry said he “wouldn’t rule out” a reunion.

Louis Tomlinson recently said that he felt forgettable during the early days of One Direction, but we know that he was actually a huge part of the group.

In fact, the 25-year-old singer’s former bandmate Niall Horan said that Louis was the glue that held the band together.

“He knows that none of us ever thought that or think that. He’s an unbelievable guy, a great singer and someone that if, I’d say, we would have lost the plot along the way if we hadn’t had Louis,” Niall told Nova 100 radio show (via Daily Mail). “He was a very, very, very, extremely vital member of One Direction. He’s a great man.”

Louis Tomlinson Says the One Direction Guys Are Still His 'Best Mates'

Louis Tomlinson Says the One Direction Guys Are Still His 'Best Mates'

Former One Direction member Niall Horan spoke out recently about how the media tries to make the former band members out to be rivals, though they aren’t at all — and now Louis Tomlinson is reaffirming that statement.

“We were always five best mates on the road; it was real nice,” the 25-year-old “Back to You” singer said to Noisey in a new interview, “and as time went on, we all began to understand each other.”

He went on to say that though their are “often misconceptions,” the five (Louis, Niall, Zayn Malik, Harry Styles, and Liam Payne) have managed to stay close.

“We’re all such good mates,” he continued, “If you look at the X Factor final, when I performed my song with Steve, all the boys came to support me, and I didn’t know until a couple of hours beforehand. It wasn’t one of those stupid f-king celebrity things where it’s like, ‘Let’s all get in a picture and put it on Instagram and show everyone that we’re best mates’ ­ – we didn’t even put it online. There are always those little things that people don’t hear about.”

We’re so glad that they have all stayed close and continued to support one another, especially after so many years working together.

You Can't Make The One Direction Guys Rivals In Their Solo Careers, Niall Horan Says

Niall Horan, Harry Styles, Louis Tomlinson and Liam Payne are all embarking on their solo music careers right now — but don’t expect them to say anything bad about the others.

The One Direction guys will always be supportive of each other, and you can’t create a rivalry between them.

“The media usually likes to create rivalry between us,” Niall shared in a new interview. “But it’s great that they can’t because we’re all releasing different types of music.”

He adds that all of them use each other as sounding boards for their new stuff, too.

“I’ve heard Liam’s new song and Louis’ stuff, and they’ve heard some of mine,” Niall says. “It’s good to have that because we will be honest with each other if we don’t like it, especially because we’ve done that for so many years.”
