We were all shocked (not to mention a little heartbroken) when our favorite boy band became a quartet. After Zayn’s abrupt departure from the band, all the remaining members seemed to support his decision and wished him the best—until Zayn dropped his first solo single. Louis started the war by tweeting at producer Naughty Boy, who Zayn has been working with since he left the group. Louis taunted him, claiming he was “riding on the back of someone else’s career.” Ouch, that’s harsh… but Zayn’s response was even more shocking.
@Louis_Tomlinson remember when you had a life and stopped making bitchy comments about mine ?

Fans are upset, and they have every right to be! The five guys were once best friends but it seems there is some drama that’s been hidden from their “directioners.” Hopefully the two of them can work it out, but in the meantime you can read all the reaction tweets on Twitter to help ease the pain.

I want Louis to change his bio to “1/4” I’ve lost all respect for Zayn #TOMLINSONSLAYSAGAIN

Looks like Zayn chose the wrong direction. #StayStrongDirectioners!
