There may be a lot of hype surrounding Zayn’s first post-One Direction song, titled ‘I Won’t Mind,’ but his former bandmates are super ‘pissed,’ a source tells EXCLUSIVELY. Find out why!

One Direction is one of the biggest bands in the world, but lately, all it’s been known as is the band that Zayn Malik, 22, quit. And to make matters worse, in less than a week since his departure on March 25, Zayn dissed the band in an interview and British music producer Naughty Boy, 30, released an alleged demo of Zayn’s first post-1D song. It’s like Zayn is biting the hand that fed him.

One Direction On Zayn Malik’s New Song — 1D Believes He’s Tainting The Band

“[Harry Styles, Louis Tomlinson, Liam Payne, and Niall Horan] aren’t jealous. They are pissed that what they made with One Direction is being tainted. They have feelings over the whole situation, not Zayn’s sound or solo career. They just feel that it is a real set of [crappy] circumstances all around,” a source tells EXCLUSIVELY.

We can certainly understand why the boys of One Direction are upset. Not only did they lose a member of their band, but by releasing a song so quickly, it’s almost like Zayn is saying that he just wanted to quit the band so he could make his own music.

In his original statement, announcing his departure from the band. Zayn said that he wanted to try and be a “normal” 22-year-old and remove himself from the limelight for a bit. Unfortunately, his actions don’t mirror his words. And Zayn’s former bandmates aren’t the only ones who are upset.
