Since leaving One Direction, Zayn Malik has had some rough times with the other members of the boy band that made him famous. To fill that void, he turned to Naughty Boy. But now he's gotten into an internet scuffle with his mentor, and it's reportedly because he's making amends with 1D.
According to The Sun, Zaughty Boy's friendship was put to the test when the duo spent even more time together. They just drifted apart, and Zayn didn't like that the producer was releasing music without his permission.
"Zayn was very close to Naughty Boy when he left One Direction. But previously they had only spent the odd day together once a month in between his touring commitments. Now they were in each other’s company every day in the studio — and eventually drifted apart a few weeks ago," their source said.
"It’s a long time to spend with someone and the studio is a pretty confined space. Zayn is angry about the music that got leaked and blamed Naughty Boy. Zayn didn’t like not being in control. This has been the sparking point.”

Another source told Hollywood Life that the Bradford Bad Boy reached out to his former bandmates because he realized who his true friends are.
“Zayn has spoken to Louis [Tomlinson] and the 1D boys in the past few weeks after realizing more and more that Naughty Boy was only out for himself. Zayn actually apologized to Louis for all the [stuff] that went down. Zayn wanted to reach out and make sure they all knew he was still their brother," their insider said.
Since the 1D guys have always considered their former bandmate their brother, we're sure everything is cool between them. It seems like Zaughty Boy's fight has to do with a lot of things. The leaked music video was just the last straw!
