Mullingar lad Niall Horan has asked his fans for privacy during his recuperation from major knee-surgery.
The One Direction pop-star made the request this morning:
“Yes I’ve had major knee surgery, a much larger surgery than first anticipated,” adding that despite the scale of it, the operation was “a complete success.”
“So all I ask of you guys is that you would respect my privacy as I try to recover and get ready for the ‘Where We Are’ tour.”
His request for privacy follows on from previous comments made by the One Directioner who admitted he was “creeped out” by people impersonating his dad Bobby Horan on Twitter.
“My brother and Denise are the only ones with twitter so any of you pretending to be my parents! Stop ! It’s actually really freaky.”
Niall had to have his knee operated on recently due to torn ligaments.
