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