People love to speculate about the sexuality of the members of boy band One Direction -- and a recent nude photo leak seems to have fed rumors.

Last week a photo that made the rounds on Twitter allegedly showed Liam Payne naked. In response, Payne denied the photo is him and also took the opportunity to address gay rumors that have circulated about him.

Payne landed himself in hot water earlier this year when he tweeted out a statement of support for Phil Robertson following the anti-gay "Duck Dynasty" star's infamous GQ profile.

Last week, Niall Horan, another One Direction star, responded to gay rumors of his own when a Vine video allegedly showing him kissing a male friend went viral.
