That Time Zayn Malik Told ‘Fat Joke’ Naughty Boy to ‘Stop Pretending’ They’re BFFs
This morning, Malik slammed his fake BFF and producer for leaking footage of his “No Type” music video. To say that One Direction fans are ecstatic and proud of Malik is an understatement.
@NaughtyBoyMusic you fat joke stop pretending we’re friends no one knows you .

Someone learned how to upload a video… maybe now he should learn how to use logic ha you ain’t shit but a faker — zaynmalik (@zaynmalik) July 13, 2015
Malik’s anger is fueled by the fact that over the weekend, Naughty Boy uploaded the unfinished music video footage on his Snapchat of Malik’s cover of Rae Sremmurd’s “No Type.” It shows Malik singing while Krept & Konan provide the rap verses.

His “No Type” cover was initially leaked last month by rapper Mic Righteous. At the time, Naughty Boy claimed the unfinished track was stolen from his hard drive and that Malik was not involved with it at all – which all turned out to be a lie after Rightous penned a lengthy Facebook post with his side of the story.
Righteous wrote (in part), “Zayn wants the tune out, he ask me to be on the song, shah (naughtyboy) told me that his label wont let him release any music for the next two yrs.. So you know what i did? I did it for him, for you. And at the end of the day they cant say no to me, i work for the people not the industry….The fact naughtyboy straight up acted like he never knew me, and said i stole the song from a hard drive in his studio (when me, him and Zayn sat there and recorded it together) made it clear to me these fame hungry fatties only wanna be around you if you hot.”
Over the past couple of days, Naughty Boy has sent some cryptic tweets of his own.

He’s yet to respond to Malik’s tweets.
Previously, Naughty Boy has gotten into high school-esque Twitter feuds with Malik’s former 1D bandmate Louis Tomlinson, who asked the producer, “Jesus forgot you were such an in demand producer …. How does it feel to be riding on the back of someone else’s career ?”
This prompted Malik to step in united with Naughty Boy, and tell Tomlinson, “remember when you had a life and stopped making bitchy comments about mine ?” breaking the fandom’s hearts in the process.
Welp, looks like Tomlinson may have been right about Naughty Boy.
