Is there really a One Direction vs. The Wanted feud going on?

We have our doubts, but 1D's Louis Tomlinson is firing back at The Wanted's Max George.

So... what went down?

Max reportedly said that the two bands "aren't the best of friends," which may or may not be the case, but it's hardly a major fight brewing.

Louis responded, telling Now magazine, "If they want to create rivalry? Then let's do it."

He added, "I want to speak openly about this because it's quite frustrating. I remember when I'd just done my first audition on The X Factor and I heard "All Time Low" for the first time. I thought it was a great song by a great band. We met them on the show and they were nice."

Seems One Direction's fame changed things a bit, as Louis notes, "It changed all of a sudden. There was one press story where they were bad-mouthing us. I thought maybe that had been twisted."

Overall, Louis says 1D isn't "bothered about the friction or the rivalry," but says he won't "shy away from it because that isn't the person I am. I don't think it's fair to me or any of the lads."

He appears to be taking the high road, explaining, "I was going to say something rude then. Or something sexual. But that's something The Wanted would say."

Aw, guys... there's plenty of love to go around for both boy bands!
