IT was only a matter of time before Naughty Boy fired back at Zayn Malik.
Despite spending time together after Zayn quit One Direction, early last month the 22-year-old launched a blistering attack on his ex-pal after a music video was leaked of Zayn singing on Krept & Konan’s No Type track.
Naughty Boy – whose real name is Shahid Khan – later spoke out to say he had nothing to do with it.
But weeks later the music producer has taken to Twitter again to seemingly blast the newly single star.
“Grow up man. the world owes you nothing. It’s like you’re engaged to karma. & karma is a b***h (sic),” he wrote in the early hours of Friday morning.
Zayn’s fans soon flooded his account telling him he needs to “grow up” himself and mention the singer in the tweet.
“There’s this thing called an @ button, it’s a beautiful thing that people use when referring to somebody on Twitter :),” one wrote.
“Instead of bashing on a guy who has more figures than you have fans why don’t you work on that non existent career of yours.”
“Funny how you’re telling him to grow up but look at you. At him at least if you want to start a fight on here.”
Last month Zayn shocked fans when he lashed out at Naughty Boy, tweeting: “@NaughtyBoyMusic you fat joke stop pretending we’re friends no one knows you (sic).”
“Someone learned how to upload a video… maybe now he should learn how to use logic ha you ain’t s*** but a faker.”
In an interview given after his tweets, Naughty Boy said: “Three months ago he was calling me his best friend at the Asian Awards so it’s a bit sad. Krept called him and explained that I had nothing to do with it.”
Naughty Boy also hinted that Zayn’s new management might have had something to do with his change of heart.
“He has got a new manager and sometimes things get interfered with,” he added. – Mirror
