Inside Im A Celebrity star Naughty Boys bitter feud with One Direction

I'm A Celebrity…Get Me Out Of Here! star Naughty Boy was once embroiled in a bitter feud with boyband One Direction.

The music producer, 36, found himself at the centre of drama in 2015, after singer Zayn Malik announced he was quitting the band.

A Twitter spat kickstarted and continued for weeks, with some stern comments made during the disagreement.

When Zayn began working with Naughty Boy after leaving One Direction, it's safe to say his former band mates were less than impressed.

In March 2015, Zayn shattered fans hearts and announced he was quitting One Direction, in the hope of launching a solo music career and to be a 'normal 22 year old'.

Just a couple of days later, the star was photographed working in the studio with Naughty Boy.

Zayn's former bandmate Louis Tomlinson was not best pleased, and he took to Twitter to voice his dismay.

Louis tweeted: "Wow @NaughtyBoyMusic you're so inconsiderate pal , seriously how f**king old are you ? Grow up ! #masterofallwisdom."

While neither Naughty Boy or Zayn replied to the tweet, Louis returned to Twitter days later to really emphasise his anger.


A story by the Irish Daily Mirror was published with the headline: "Zayn Malik's solo song with Naughty Boy is a One Direction REJECT tune – didn't make their album", and Louis quickly fired back: "Is that an April fool?"

As rumours concerning a feud between Louis and Zayn began intensifying, Naughty Boy added fuel to the fire and shared a photo of him and Zayn together.

Sat next to each in what looked to be a recording studio, the producer shared it to Twitter for all to see.

Louis once again struck, mocking the pair's photo, 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!"

This tweet proved to be the final straw, and Naughty Boy finally responded to Louis' taunts.

Various insults followed, with Naughty Boy accusing Louis of not being able to sing, while he claimed the producer was 'riding on the back of someone else's career'.

Zayn eventually waded in, and to many One Direction fans' horror, fired back at Louis: "Remember when you had a life and stopped making bitchy comments about mine?"

A couple more comments were made and the feud appeared to disperse, until it took an unexpected turn months later.

Later that year, in July, Zayn took to Twitter to hit out at his now ex-pal Naughty Boy in a series of scathing tweets.

He wrote: "@NaughtyBoyMusic you fat joke stop pretending we're friends no one knows you."

Before adding: "Someone learned how to upload a video… maybe now he should learn how to use logic ha you ain't sh*t but a faker."

While Naughty Boy didn't respond directly to the tweets online, he did say in an interview the following week: "I can deal with what he said but he knows the hate I’ve had to endure for him is the bit that upset me."

Zayn then revealed he had signed a record deal with RCA Records and was officially going solo.

In the days that followed, Naughty Boy tweeted an image which showed the words: "Sometimes my greatest accomplishment is just keeping my mouth shut" across it.

The feud finally looked to have come to an end, and has remained inactive ever since.
