One Direction's Liam Payne says President Donald Trump once kicked the band out of his hotel after they declined to wake up and meet one of his daughters.
"Trump actually kicked us out of his hotel once," 23-year-old Payne told Rollacoaster Magazine, New York Daily News reports. "You wouldn’t believe it. It was about [meeting] his daughter. He phoned up our manager and we were asleep. He said 'Well, wake them up' and I was like 'no' and then he wouldn’t let us use the underground garage."
"Obviously in New York we can’t really go outside," Payne added. "New York is ruthless for us. So he was like, 'OK, then I don’t want you in my hotel.’' So we had to leave."
It's not clear which daughter Payne is referring to or when Trump allegedly kicked the band out.

Trump has had run-ins with many celebrities in the past.
Rapper Snoop Dogg is the most recent one to feel the president's wrath, WTKR reports.
Snoop released a controversial video for his song, "Lavender," depicting a police officer shooting a clown resembling Trump with a confetti gun.
"The whole world is clownin’ around, and [the director of the video’s] concept is so right on point with the art direction and the reality, because if you really look at some of these motherf***ers, they are clowns," he told Billboard Magazine.
Trump responded with outrage.
"Can you imagine what the outcry would be if Snoop Dogg, failing career and all, had aimed and fired the gun at President Obama?" tweeted Trump in response. "Jail time!"
Many pointed out that, while Snoop never did the same to former President Barack Obama, others did make effigies of Obama, lit them on fire and hanged them, Revelist reports.
