The Wanted's Siva Kaneswaran says Max George's split interview was "disappointing"

The Wanted star Siva Kaneswaran has expressed his disappointment in bandmate Max George after he spoke to the press about the band's hiatus.

The group recently announced that they will be splitting for the foreseeable future after their upcoming Word of Mouth tour.

George broke rank recently, however, and gave an interview to The Sun in which he said tension between the members and poor sales contributed to their downfall.

In a new interview with the Daily Mail, Kaneswaran admitted that his bandmate's words came as a "shock" to him before dismissing George's claims.

He said: "I’ve got many thoughts on it, where do I start? You know we all agreed to take a break to pursue various endeavours after the tour and that was what we had all agreed on by phone. We all had a phone call and gave our personal thoughts on where we wanted to go and we released a statement. And the statement is what we all agreed on, so it was quite a shock to have that recent article come out from Max, for me and the fans because we found out at the same time."

Talking about George's idea that their personal lives clashed, Kaneswaran added: "I think it’s untrue and very unfair. I think from doing the TV show we all kind of knew where we stood and from that I felt like there was some sense of… I felt like it was every man for himself looking back on when the show aired."

Speaking meanwhile about how he will deal with George before The Wanted's tour, the Irishman said: 

"I’m going to have to talk to him and find a way forward and be adults about it. All of us boys are like brothers, it's all I’ve ever known and we’re going on tour together and I think we’re just going to be professional with each other and give the fans a good show because it’s all about the fans at the end of the day. I wouldn’t say he betrayed us but he didn’t communicate enough with us. There was a major lack of communication. It was disappointing, that’s all it was."
