One Direction’s Louis Tomlinson thinks Naughty Boy is using Zayn Malik & Harry Styles BEGGED him to stay!

Louis Tomlinson’s rage against Naughty Boy hasn’t been much of a secret in recent weeks and now we may have an explanation for why he has been so angry.

Insiders say the One Direction star was devastated when his bandmate Zayn Malik left the band in March and has only been more infuriated since he’s become BFFs with his producer pal following the split.

Zayn and Naughty Boy have been working on Malik’s solo album and the latter has been frequently posting pictures of them both in the studio, laying down some tracks.

Louis thinks his pal in vulnerable and ‘lost’ and that his new pal is using him when he’s at his lowest ebb. “The main problem Louis has with Naughty Boy is that he believes he’s using Zayn to gain notoriety and fame,” a source told “Louis genuinely does not believe Naughty Boy has Zayn’s best interests at heart, and in the end will do more damage than good.”

Tommo is hoping the Steal My Girl hitmaker sees sense and gravitates towards his former bandmates again. The source added:

“You must remember, Naughty Boy took Zayn under his wing when he was vulnerable and lost after quitting 1D and that’s just how Louis sees it, and hopes that Zayn realizes he’s being taken advantage of and quits ties with the rapper.”

Fans have pointed out that Zayn started work with Naughty Boy before he left 1D though and that the pair seem to be genuine friends. However NB is definitely no friend of Louis’ and has been shooting his mouth off again in a new interview. It all kicked off this morning when the producer said his nemesis needs to ‘shut his mouth.’

Meanwhile, it’s been reported that Harry Styles and his bandmates begged Zayn to stay back in March, when they first heard he might be leaving the band. “Harry and his band mates initially tried to convince him from quitting,” a source close to One Direction said. “They even begged him to stay because they didn’t want him to make a decision he would regret. But in the end he had to go.”

    O-M-G YES OF COURSE HE’S BEING USED!!!! We all see it except Zayn sadly. Louis has no reason to want to hurt him. They’ve known each other for 5 years. Friends know & they will go to great lengths to fight for you. Louis has no business with this monster boy. His only concern would have to be Zayn. I don’t know how much more convincing Zayn needs.

    I dont know whats going on behind the scenes so I cant jump to conclusions. However, given the duration Zayn and NB have known each other, I cant call their friendship fake. Louis and Zayn may have been bros for years, sharing hotels and travelling together etc but I wouldnt be shocked if they’ve drifted apart for some reason or other. Not all friendships are meant to last a lifetime and there is definitely opportunities at all stages of life to make new ones. We can speculate all we want but only time will tell.

    1. IDoitRight Styler on May 12, 2015 at 3:55 am

      No, I don’t think they drifted apart before Zayn left. Louis wouldn’t have reacted the way he did after Zayn left I they did. Louis is actually acting like a jealous best friend who’s been left out, kind of how I would act if my best friend up and left and found herself some new friends and left me out. I do agree with you when u say we don’t know what happened, however the way things are looking, it does seem like naughty boy is using zayn. Think about it. Zayn has known naughty boy for what? Like 5 months at most and during that time that was when the zayn leaving the band rumors first started. Remember at the AMA’s roughly 6 months ago, zayn was asked was he leaving the band and he said it was the first he had heard of it. Well, then he met naughty boy and suddenly he wouldn’t even respond to the breakup rumors which had only heightened since then. I think that maybe he had started to think about leaving the band by then and he couldn’t truthfully say he wasn’t thinking about leaving. Then he starts having problems with his fiancee because he has been accused of cheating on her, so he quit the tour. And when he came back home, he and perrie had a fight (I believe that was when she gave him an ultimatum to leave the band). And she left and went to a hotel. Remember the pics of her with that overnight bag? Anyway I think Zayn would have maybe stayed except he had naughty boy in his ear telling him he should leave. Here’s why I think naughty boy had something to do with him leaving. Like 2 days after zayn left the band he was seen with naughty boy at the studio, so that means naughty boy was there or at least close by during the week that zayn left the tour right before he quit. I said all that to say this: lately whenever something major happens with Zayn, naughty boy is there. Zayn is with him 24/7 and naughty boy is even helping him with his album. You can’t tell me that he is doing all of this out of the goodness of his heart. He is only benefiting by being Zayn’s friend, and u might be right he might be a true friend but I seriously doubt it. He is constantly starting twitter wars with his snippy little comments (like seriously what 30 year old does that?). He is alienating Zayn from his brothers and his fans. He is only benefiting from the attention he gets from being Zayns right hand man. I had never even heard of him before Zayn left, and now he stays in the news. Anyway that’s my thoughts on it. What do u think?

        I agree. You made some great points. This has been months in the making. The biggest sign was when he missed the US album debut promo concert. Who does that? I wouldn’t be surprised if Naughty Boy had something to do with that out of envy & it would be a shame if Zayn fell in that trap because I don’t care how many #1’s you’ve had a British star at the top in the US is always huge & he should’ve been there even if he couldn’t sing (& the band found out on the morning of! What’s with the lack of communication?). Leaving at the beginning of the OTRA tour to spend time at the studio with Naughty Boy who tweeted a series of shady tweets about 1D & Zayn remaining twitter silent was extremely irresponsible. Also Naughty Boy is very boastful about his projects before they even happen like the song he & Zayn wrote that never made it on the album & the Britney Spears project that never was. He’s very cocky for someone who’s just getting started.

        Perhaps it’s not NB. Zayn had looked unhappy for quite a while. And there was rumours that the 3 songs he wrote for the album was rejected. Per rumours Simon even liked one of his songs ‘One Chance to Dance’ (collaboration with NB) and it was rumoured that it will be made a single. It was also said that the leaked song ‘I Won’t Mind’ was also one of the songs Zayn wrote for 1D album. None of the songs made it to the album. From hearing that leaked song and the rumours heard abut that other one, it wasn’t because those songs were bad. Perhaps he felt unsupported by ID management and his bandmates whilst NB was turning his ear making Z believe he would have. Was it too much to just accept one of the guy’s song for the album? He did work on them. Apparently they said his works doesn’t sound like 1D.

        @M, NB was trying to change their sound. In an interview he was saying it’s “the next step” & he is NOT their creative director. I like the songs that are on Four as it is. This was Zayn’s first attempt & not everybody’s gonna get it right on the first try. Maybe he should’ve tried writing with someone else. I also wouldn’t be surprised if management just didn’t want to do business with NB. Look at how messy he is. He was trying to get on their album then last week said Louis can’t sing. NB is not a good person.

  4. Linda on May 12, 2015 at 3:25 am

    NB is using him. He put Zayns solo recording out there plain and simple to say; “Ha. I’ve got him now.” Don’t think NB didn’t know what he was doing. That started the verbal spat between NB and Louis. As far as NB and Zayn being friends for a long time means nothing. NB had a long time to work on Zayn.

  7. Akanksha singh on May 12, 2015 at 12:41 pm

    yeah even i think so!! Hope zayn realises and he is being used# 🙁
    Hope he gets back to his old, “good” buddies (friends for life)!!#$

  8. Glyn Ruck on May 12, 2015 at 3:30 pm

    Well then Louis should reach out to Zayn & clear the air. He’s only a phone all away.

    1. Glyn Ruck on May 12, 2015 at 5:55 pm

      phone call

  9. IDoitRight Styler on May 12, 2015 at 6:34 pm

    I’ve gotta agree with Linda on this. Some of Zayn’s songs that he was heavily involved in were actually put on the album (fool’s gold, night changes, clouds, and change your ticket). But a the same time, you are right. I do believe Zayn was disappointed when some of his songs weren’t put on the album, which is unrealistic, really. He is an amateur. He can’t expect all of his songs to be up to par and be put on the album. He did well with what he got. And you are right Naughty Boy was probably in his ear the whole time, making him lose faith in his bandmates and 1D management. No telling what’s gonna happen next.
