Zayn Malik vs Naughty Boy: Was The Former One Direction Member Angry Because He ‘Doesn’t Like Not Being In Control’?

Unless you had your head quite literally buried in the sand yesterday afternoon, you’ll know that Twitter, the One Direction fandom and basically the entire world lost their s**t when Zayn Malik slammed Naughty Boy on Twitter.

We had about as much chill as a broken freezer as the Bradford Bad Boi lived up to his nickname, tweeting: “you fat joke stop pretending we’re friends no one knows you . [sic]”

Our reaction? Err, something like this:


He then added: “Someone learned how to upload a video… maybe now he should learn how to use logic ha you ain’t s**t but a faker.”

We screamed, we cried, we ask our mum to come pick us up because we were scared (kidding)(maybe), but most of all, we wanted to know what, in the name of freshly brought guacamole, was actually going on.



Yesterday, we briefly mentioned that rumours were being thrown around that Zayn’s sudden burst of rage was triggered by the leaking of his music video of Krept & Konan cover ‘No Type’, ft. Mic Righteous.

Now, a source has told The Sun that inZAYN (geddit?) blames Naughty Boy for the leak, and that they’d already drifted apart weeks ago.

The insider revealed: “Zayn was very close to Naughty Boy when he left One Direction. But previously they had only spent the odd day together once a month in between his touring commitments.


“Now they were in each other’s company every day in the studio - and eventually drifted apart a few weeks ago.

“It’s a long time to spend with someone and the studio is a pretty confined space. Zayn is angry about the music that got leaked and blamed Naughty Boy.

“Zayn didn’t like not being in control. This has been the sparking point.”

Does it ever drive you crazy, just how fast the night changes?



Naughty Boy is yet to reply on his own Twitter, but has been tweeting some cryptic stuff recently, including one tweet which read: “don’t feed the hand that bites you.”

Another read: “shame on you for changing,” while another said: “this “music” business teaches you the tricks but never the truth . you know who you are.”

Oh ruddy ‘eck. We thought we’d left all the cryptic messages behind in those primary school verbal reasoning tests.


Mic Righteous, however, has had his say, tweeting: “I got nothing but love for @zaynmalik freedom, love and truth is all we’ll ever need.”

Shall we sit back and grab the popcorn or…?
