One Direction's Liam Payne Full-Frontal Selfie: A Fake Out?

One Direction fans were sent into a frenzy after Liam Payne posted what appeared to be a full-frontal seflie – but did the 1D singer really show off a bit too much?

"Damn that was my last pair!" the 20-year-old pop star caption a shot of himself naked (with his crotch region pixelated) while on the back of a yacht.

The photo incited a small meltdown for some fans, as they questioned if he really posted the racy shot and then demanded to see an uncensored version of the photo.

But Payne was simply being a prankster.

PHOTOS: Stars In Their Underwear

"Oh I found them never mind aha," he caption a second uncensored version of the pic, showing himself in a pair of short black swim trunks, seven hours after the initial frenzy-inducing photo.

Despite not showing off his goods (which would probably get him banned on Instagram), 1D fans should delight in Liam's shirtless boat attire.
