Zayn Malik’s Bad Boy Behavior Loses Appeal, As Friends Fear For Former 1D Singer

Zayn Malik is losing appeal after his brief Twitter feud with DJ Calvin Harris. It looks like everyone has an opinion about the former One Direction singer and his online feuds lately.

Both rapper Example and British pop star Conor Maynard have given their input on Zayn Malik’s controversial social media behavior.

In a recent interview with the Daily Star, Example says that he thinks Malik’s trying to become former bad boy Robbie Williams.

“He’s probably just a young frustrated guy who is hitting out. Maybe he’s trying to do the Robbie Williams formula when he left Take That and did drugs, s****ed girls and kept his profile up with average hits until the amazing Angels.”

Example had more to say about Zayn Malik’s questionable tweets and social media behavior. He says that the singer should lay low and not go up against successful music producers and pop acts.

“If you are going to go up against anyone don’t go up against Calvin Harris. He’s the king of the music world at the moment, dating the most successful female artist and is a lovely guy. Zayn should have bitten his lip.”

Conor Maynard also revealed that he recently unfollowed Malik on Twitter. The pop star, who’s been compared to the likes of Justin Bieber, said that he’s sick of the burgeoning solo act’s bad boy behavior. During his recent interview with the Daily Star, Maynard claimed that he finds Malik’s Twitter bashing rather lame and embarrassing.

“Zayn needs to stop bashing people on Twitter. It’s all getting awkward. Cavlin Harris, Taylor Swift…At the end of the day his comebacks are crap too. He said to Calvin, ‘Calm down before your dentures fall out’ and I literally unfollowed him because of that tweet.”

Aside from having an online beef with Calvin Harris, Zayn also feuded with former 1D bandmate Louis Tomlinson. Louis sided with Calvin by favoriting the following tweet: “@FemaleTexts @ZaynMalik You’ve made your money? Cool…f**k the 99% of musicians who depend on these services to survive right? Yeah f**k em.”

Some of Zayn Malik’s controversial online behavior has trickled into his real life. He allegedly got into a fight with Tyga, which caused him to get kicked out of Kylie Jenner’s birthday party. It all started when Malik liked one of Jenner’s sexy photos on Twitter. Several reports claimed that the singer may experience a public breakdown, similar to Chris Brown and Justin Bieber.

Even some of Zayn’s former employees and friends have been worried about the star. One told The Sun, “Zayn has been acting like a complete idiot. He was protected and looked after for so long by so many people who genuinely cared about him and his future.”

Meanwhile, another close friend of Malik claims that he’s going “power crazy.”

“I don’t understand it. He has not had any success as a solo artist yet, so his ego shouldn’t be that driven. He has gone mad, power mad.”

As previously reported via the Inquisitr, an old friend told the Daily Mail that fears Zayn Malik is headed for a breakdown sometime soon.

“An old friend revealed to the newspaper’s Dan Wootton: ‘He is self-destructing right now and I hope he’s got someone there fore him. I doubt he has, though, so that’s why I’m worried for him… He’s p***ing off so many people, it’s very hard to see him having much support left by the time he’s finally ready to release any music. He has gone power crazy. You can blame other people like his new management but really it’s him.'”
