The 23-year-old has had a difficult time after he was involved in an altercation with a fan in Barcelona back in November, and only recently returned to Instagram back in February. One Direction band member Liam Payne revealed that he had reached out to the Canadian star, telling Rollacoaster magazine: "He's a great guy — inside there's a really good heart. I said, 'Look, the difference between me and you is I had four different boys going through the same thing to look to. He didn't have that. I said to him, 'Take my number and any time you want a chat, let me know as I'm here and I understand exactly what you're going through and I understand your world.' He needs somebody like that and in that position."
