Such a good point. You know who is a private person? Bobby Horan. You know who we have always known was a part of Niall’s life? Bobby Horan. You know who is another private person? Geoff Payne. You know who we have always known was a part of Liam’s life? Geoff Payne.
Do you know what one of the most pervasive stereotypes about racial minority fathers is? That they abandon their children. Now look at the tags below.
Even if Yaser never wanted to appear before the cameras, do you really think he would prohibit Zayn or Tricia from mentioning or talking about him? Do you really think he would ask that Zayn be portrayed as fatherless? No. Of course not. He probably didn’t realise it would play out that way at all.
