Is there more trouble on the horizon for 1D? Naughty Boy is ready to share sensational stories about the band’s darkest secrets, HollywoodLife.com has EXCLUSIVELY learned. Read all about it here!
He’s naughty by name, and naughty by nature. Naughty Boy, 30, who briefly worked with Zayn Malik, 22, after he quit One Direction, is threatening to reveal the boy band’s biggest secrets in a shocking tell-all, HollywoodLife.com can EXCLUSIVELY reveal. Will his beef with 1D ever end?
The London-born music producer, who was privy to a lot of 1D’s biggest secrets, has already approached several UK tabloids and wants to share a number of stories that would shock the band’s hardcore fans.
“Naughty Boy got very close to Zayn, and knows everything about the boys,” a source tells HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY. “He’s approached several UK tabloids shopping a huge tell-all about the band, with the promise of revealing their X-rated secrets. After falling out with Zayn, he’s keen to make money off the back of him and sees this as his perfect opportunity.”
However, despite the likely riveting stories, no one has taken Naughty Boy up on his offer because he’s demanding too much money. “So far no one has bitten,” our source continues. “Naughty Boy is adamant he won’t sell his story on the cheap. He’s looking for a 6-figure sum to dish the dirt.”
When Zayn quit 1D back in March 2015, the vulnerable singer immediately jumped into the studio with Naughty Boy, so you can only imagine what Naughty Boy must know.
Zayn Malik & Naughty Boy Locked In A Feud Over Leaked Track ‘No Type’
However, as HollywoodLife.com previously reported, Zayn and Naughty Boy have been fighting ever since he allegedly leaked the singer’s “No Type” music video. Zayn threw major shade at the producer on Twitter. He tweeted on July 13, “@NaughtyBoyMusic you fat joke stop pretending we’re friends no one knows you,” it made us really stand up and take notice.
Then, upon further investigation, we discovered that their social media feud went back further than we thought. On July 11, just two days before Zayn’s new video was leaked, Naughty Boy tweeted, “This ‘music’ business teaches you the tricks but never the truth . you know who you are.”
Was that a dig at Zayn? Quite possibly. Naughty Boy’s made it a habit of stirring up drama with Zayn and his former bandmates. The artist’s most notable feud was with Louis Tomlinson, 23. Those two went back-and-forth constantly, driving a big wedge between Louis and Zayn for a while.
It’s all one big mess, HollywoodLifers. But are you interested in 1D’s darkest secrets? Let us know in the comments below.
