Update (7/13): It looks like Zayn Malik is backtracking his bromance with producer Naughty Boy. The pair have been writing and recording together, but after a series of tweets Monday morning, it looks like Zayn wants nothing to do with the guy. He referred to him as a "fat joke" (the entire tweet read "you fate joke stop pretending we're friends no one knows you") and then subtweeted him, mocking his lack of musicianship. No word on what incited this bro-down, but peep the barbs below.

Update (5/7): The passive-aggression war continues. After Zayn Malik/Louis Tomlinson/Naughty Boy back and forth gave the Internet a collective heart attack, the One Direction boys took it a step further by attempting to out-fan-love one another. It started with Malik writing, "Don't know why I'm being attacked for defending myself , people got it twisted! I love my fans ?! Every single one of you x". A few hours later, Tomlinson retorted with, "Our fans support really has been a different class ! Huge love to you guys !!" Whose side are you on? Tell us in the comments.

Original Story (5/6): Ever since Zayn Malik left One Direction and his producer friend Naughty Boy shared a solo, ZM original tune, tension between the boy band has grown. Today, Louis Tomlinson subtweeted a selfie Malik and Naughty Boy took, writing, "Remember when you were 12 and you used to think those Mac filters for your pictures were cool haha ! Some people still do HA!" 

It escalated into a heated back and forth, Zayn eventually interjecting and TAKING NAUGHTY BOY'S SIDE! "remember when you had a life and stopped making bitchy comments about mine ?" View the full interaction below and dry those tears with our Eight Sweetest One Direction Fan Interactions collection.
