All it took was one very 'naughty boy' to start a boyband Twitter fight of epic proportions.
Mayweather vs Pacquiao might have been billed as the fight of the century last weekend, but don’t underestimate the drama which can occur when a former boyband member, his producer and his ex-bandmate get into a twitter spat. Yes just over a month after One Direction went from five to four, it appears the gloves are well and truly off between former member Zayn Malik and Louis Tomlinson.
Zayn announced his departure from the boyband back in March.
It all started on Wednesday afternoon, when producer Naughty Boy, who’s been working with Zayn on solo material, tweeted an pic of the pair using an image filter along with the caption, ‘Replace this’.
Don't worry, Directioners, the show must go on.
First they were afraid, they were petrified, kept thinking they could never live without him by their side... but One Direction seem to have moved on from Zayn Malik’s departure fairly quickly. So says Niall Horan, in a series of tweets which revealed that the band is already planning a return to the studio.
One Direction are now going in separate directions.
He wrote: "Had a sit down last night with the label, started organising our writing sessions for the next album! F**k yeaaaahhhh! Can't wait!"
