Naughty Boy thought Zayn Malik’s abusive tweets were a hacker!

As if we weren’t confused enough.

Right. A lot has been going on recently in the continuing One Direction/Zayn Malik/Naughty Boy beef.

And now the plot thickens further as NB – real name Shahid Khan – says he thought Zayn’s most recent malicious tweets were the work of a hacker. Erm… awkward!


Last week we told you how the ex-1D star tweeted Naughty Boy – who up until then we thought was his bezzie – saying, “you fat joke stop pretending we’re friends no one knows you”.

He followed up with: “Someone learned how to upload a video… maybe now he should learn how to use logic ha you ain’t shit but a faker.” Ouch!

Be nice, Zayn!

This all came after the producer apparently leaked a video of Zayn singing on Krept & Konan's No Type video.

And now in an interview about the incident, Naughty Boy told The Sun: “It sounded like one of the things the little girls who send me hate would say.

“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.

“That’s not how I know Zayn to speak, even face to face. I definitely thought at first that he had been hacked.

(We wish it was a hacker, NB!)

“The fat joke thing wasn’t necessary and he’s getting a lot of backlash for that because a lot of his fans don’t look like Selena Gomez.

“At some point as an artist you have to take responsibility for everything you say. That’s why I think Zayn did it out of anger.”

He has had a lot going on so far in 2015, tbf.

Naughty Boy went on: “Two months ago he was calling me his best friend at the Asian Awards so it’s a bit sad.

“Krept called him and explained that I had nothing to do with it. At that time he should have just deleted the tweet.”

It seems like Naughty’s handling the whole situation maturely. Maybe he’s just tired of the ongoing Twitter rants he’s endured thanks to the ex-Directioner, as abused was hurled at him after Zayn announced his split from the group.

This interview all comes after his initial reaction on Twitter, in which he said to Zayn: “don’t feed the hand that bites you.”


Naughty Boy also stood up for his old best pal in the interview, saying: “Forget what I’ve been through, you do have to remember what this guy has been through these last few months and had to deal with.

“I understand why he could be over-reacting on things and just jumping to conclusions. He is still a young guy who has gone through a lot and I am always going to be there for this guy.”

Now we’ve cleared that one up – can you please kiss and make up, Zayn and Naughty Boy? We’re still coming to terms with all the 1D beef, and don’t think we can handle you boys falling out, too.
