BOY George has slammed Liam Payne for refusing to have a picture taken with his 13-year-old niece - but the One Direction hunk claims his criticism is unjustified.

The 51-year-old singer was accompanied to the BRIT Awards on Wednesday night by 13-year-old Molly Fitzpatrick and while the teenager was thrilled to meet some of her pop idols, her famous uncle claims the One Direction heartthrob left her disappointed.

He tweeted: "Top marks to Harry Styles for stopping for a picture with my niece and Bo**ox's to Liam and the disrespectful w**ker of a minder!

"Stars of the night, Harry Styles, Lana Del Ray, Jessie J. Too many drug f**ked twits to mention elsewhere! Emily Sande was great! (sic)"

However, Liam has hit back and accused George of lying and described their encounter as "awkward" as the Culture Club star continually confused him with bandmate Niall Horan.

Liam wrote on Twitter: "@BoyGeorge now now boy lets not tell porkies. Firstly thanks for getting my name wrong three times, then asking me where is liam? ... awkward. Then when you finally got it right saying you wanted Niall instead.

"if you would have asked me for a picture i would have stopped bro I just did what you said and pointed niall out for you so u just keep wearing ur strange hats and enjoy yourself my little Georgie pie ... It's still not cool you just look weird. (sic)"

Following his outburst, George was inundated with angry messages from One Direction fans, prompting him to appeal: "One Direction fans stop bothering me! (sic)"
