Zayn's pal, Leon Anderson, tweeted Courtney's (known as CJ to friends) phone number, writing, "Ppl shouldn't tell lies..."
Sounds like Leon is firmly in Zayn's corner--not believing the waitresses' tale of a steamy affair with the One Direction heartthrob.
CJ tells The Sun that she received hundreds of calls from unhappy Directioners who ship Zayn and Perrie Edwards, including death threats.
She told the paper, "I was expecting some abuse but it has got out of control. I've had hundreds of calls from all over the world."
She added, "One American girl left me six voicemails in an hour saying she was going to kill me. It's really scary."
After a few hours, Leon removed the number, but the damage had already been done, with CJ noting, "Leon's a nasty piece of work. It was Zayn who cheated, not me, and Leon let it happen."
Leon told The Sun, "Courtney was a friend who tried to cause an issue with another friend."
Courtney also received plenty of hate on Twitter, including one Zayn supporter who tweeted, "Courtney Webb, What's Your Address I will Hunt you and Gonna Kill You B***h. Perrie is for @zaynmalik"
