Naughty Boy: 'There's no real bad blood between One Direction members and Zayn Malik'

Producer Naughty Boy has revealed that there's no real bad blood between the remaining members of One Direction and Zayn Malik

Speaking to BANG Showbiz at the 60th Anniversary Ivor Novello Awards, he explained that Malik doesn't have any negative feelings towards the other lads and he's just focusing now on his own career

"I don't think there's any real bad blood, especially from this side. I just want people to support him and prepare for his future. I think people just need to respect his reasons for leaving. Right now it's down time for Zayn but I think there is a journey for him, I think for any kind of band there has to be a destiny for each of them. Nothing lasts forever."

Naughty Boy added: "He's in a very difficult position. He won't tell his side of the story yet and that's why there has to be radio silence... (I spoke out for him) because that's the rock n roll in me, I'm not going to take s**t from anybody. I took my own road to get here, I'm not part of a PR machine, or discovery and marketing. I've done it all myself. I've done whatever it takes to get here. But I do feel a bit sorry for the fans because they've been brought up with this."
