One Direction's Louis lashes out at rival Tom

Louis Tomlinson got himself into a furious Twitter spat with Tom Parker yesterday after making a joke about The Wanted on stage at the O2 Arena.

Tom, 24, asked One Direction singer Louis, 21, if he’d posted the quip because he’s ‘upset he didn’t get into the band’.

Louis was quick to fire back: ‘Pal, we both know I wouldn’t waste my time auditioning for your band. You humour me with your bad boy persona.’

He later sent Tom a link to a story where the Bolton boy admitted that failing an X Factor audition ‘shattered’ him.

The pair continued to bombard each other with heated messages – although Tom has now deleted his – with Louis labelling his rival ‘the biggest tw*t on Twitter‘.

Louis‘ band mate Liam Payne soon waded in to tell Tom that his singing ‘pierces his ears with every note’ and that 1D‘s drummer ‘has more followers’ than him.

The Wanted‘s Jay McGuiness then sent Louis a lengthy Tweet which accused him of becoming ‘one of the most overrated, arrogant and insincere people around’.

But it wasn’t just the boys who were fighting – Louis‘ girlfriend Eleanor Calder and Tom‘s other half Kelsey Hardwick began bickering too.

Both girls re-Tweeted bitchy comments from fans, with Eleanor, 20, posting one that read: ‘it’s sad when he has to put ‘the wanted’ in his twitter name because no one knows who he is.’

She then sent Kelsey the hashtag #nipslip, in reference to an embarrassing wardrobe malfunction the blonde suffered last year. 

Kelsey didn’t seem too bothered by the jibe – she shot back: ‘@EleanorJCalder awwww bless ya!!! Did ya wanna see more!! Xxx.’
