The Zayn Malik and Naughty Boy friendship is suddenly sinking faster than the Titanic... but it hasn't always been that way


Following his shock split from One Direction in March, there’s no denying Zayn Malik turned to music producer Naughty Boy for comfort.

From solo studio sessions to selfies and suited up night’s out, their bromance has gone from strength to strength over the past few months.

Until today, that is.

When the former boybander, quite unexpectedly, slammed his (no longer) best friend on Twitter, writing: ‘you fat joke stop pretending we’re friends no one knows you.’

A few moments later, the 22-year-old then posted an indirect tweet, stating: ‘Someone learned how to upload a video.. maybe now he should learn how to use logic ha you ain’t shit but a faker.’

Although it’s unsure what exactly has happened between the pair, many fans suspect Zayn’s posts are in regards to a leaked video of him covering track ‘No Type’ which mysteriously appeared on the internet yesterday.

Which was also around the same time Naughty Boy first hinted at trouble between the pair, writing on his Twitter page: ‘Don’t feed the hand that bites you. This ‘music’ business teaches you the tricks but never the truth. You know who you are.’

So while we await further details behind the surprise slating, we’ve decided to take a look back over some of their cutest moments.
