Zayn Malik Fights With Ex-One Direction Bandmate Louis Tomlinson

Zayn Malik Fights With Ex-One Direction Bandmate Louis Tomlinson

The Debrief: Forget the election for a moment, as these supposed mates are now pretty angry with one another…

Remember how Zayn Malik left One Direction? You’ll also remember that he’s been in the studio working with Naughty Boy. And you might also know that it didn’t leave 1D member Louis Tomlinson very happy. We can’t even remember what the last argument between Louis and Naughtyboy was, but this one will stick because Zayn just cussed Louis, big time.

Here’s how it unraveled.

Naughty Boy uploaded a photo of him and Zayn in the studio, using one of those filters you get on Apple products:

Louis then subtweeted (that’s when you tweet about someone without mentioning them because you kind of don’t want them to see it)

#TOMLINSONSLAYSAGAIN then began trending as if this comment was the pinnacle of bitchy humour.

And then Zayn – previously quiet – waded in:

OOOOOF. Touché, Zayn. Looks like he’s been taking notes from Noel Gallagher’s school of put-downs.

The ex-Oasis guitarist, who’s slagged off his brother Liam almost as many times as Liam’s slagged him off, told Rolling Stone: ‘It's a strange thing for that lad to have done at that age. The greatest quote was — I laughed out loud when I read it — "I just want to be a normal 22-year-old." Pfft. Who wants to be a normal 22-year-old?! Hang on a minute. You can be fucking anything that moves and gettin' paid half a million dollars a week, you fuckin' idiot. You want to be a normal 22-year-old? Have you met any normal 22-year-olds? They're fuckin' shit-for-brains.’
