Members of the pop band One Direction say Donald Trump once kicked them out of his hotel because they refused to meet his kid.
“Trump actually kicked us out of his hotel once,” Liam Payne told Rollacoaster.“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.”
Payne added that in New York City, the band can’t exactly just go outside. “New York is ruthless for us. So he was like, ‘Okay, then I don’t want you in my hotel.’ So we had to leave.”
Payne did not say which of Trump’s daughters he was referring to, although it seems likely he was talking about Tiffany Trump, who is the closest in age to the band members.
Tiffany also had aspirations at one point of being a pop star and recorded “Like a Bird.” (see below)
