When it comes to twitter wars over the past few months Zayn Malik and his former mates in One Direction probably head the list. After quitting One Direction mid tour back in March Malik went quiet on social media for some time. Zayn blamed social media reports that he was cheating on fiance Perrie Edwards as one of the primary causes of the stress that led him to very publicly quit one of the world biggest boy bands.
After quitting the band Malik caused a furore when footage of him performing with his friend Naughty Boy leaked online. neither his former pals not the One Direction “fandom” were impressed when this happened. Shortly after that Naughty Boy got involved in a very public spat with One Direction’s Louis Tomlinson and Malik again became involved.
Yesterday it was reported in Inquisitr that Malik may be about to ditch Naughty Boy so that he could surround himself with top music industry professionals as he prepares to launch a solo career. The Mirror reported that Malik was in talks to bring Sarah Stennett, a top music executive who has helped mastermind the careers of Rita Ora, Ellie Goulding and Jessie J, into his camp. The Mirror claimed that a source had told them that the price of Stennett’s involvement was that Malik ditched Naughty Boy.
Today it seems that Stennett’s demands may have been met in a very public way. According to the London Standard messages have appeared on Zayn Malik’s twitter account slamming his record producer friend. Malik’s first message called Naughty Boy “A Fat Joke.
Malik said “you fat joke stop pretending we’re friends no one knows you.”

A second message from Malik appeared shortly afterwards which said “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.”

It is not clear whether Malik has responded to some sort of fallout between the two but a number of cryptic tweets appeared on Naughty Boy’s feed yesterday. The first said “This ‘music’ business teaches you the tricks but never the truth. you know who you are.”

Malik has made no comment about the messages and it is not yet clear whether or not his Twitter account has been hacked. Within moments of the messages going out the hashtag #ZaynHasNoChill was trending worldwide. Malik’s messages have been re-tweeted over 110,000 times each in just over one hour. Many One Direction fans will be delighted at this turn of events as they blame Naughty Boy for Zayn Malik quitting the band.
