Naughty Boy Breaks Silence After Zayn Malik Calls Him ‘Fat Joke’ on Twitter
Where do broken hearts go?

Naughty Boy spoke out Monday (July 20) following one-time buddy Zayn Malik dissing him on Twitter last week, calling him a “fat joke” for exploiting their musical partnership and sharing demos without his permission.

In an interview with The Sun, Naughty Boy –real name Shahid Khan — noted that he hadn’t had any contact with Malik since Malik’s remarks. “It sounded like one of the things the little girls who send me hate would say. I can deal with what he said but he knows the hate I’ve had to endure for him is the bit that upset me. That’s not how I know Zayn to speak, even face to face. I definitely thought at first that he had been hacked. The fat joke thing wasn’t necessary and he’s getting a lot of backlash for that because a lot of his fans don’t look like Selena Gomez. At some point as an artist you have to take responsibility for everything you say. That’s why I think Zayn did it out of anger.”
