There was quite a lot of drama following Zayn Malik's decision to quit One Direction, including a Twitter feud between Naughty Boy and Louis Tomlinson, which led to the producer releasing what was believed to be Zayn's first post-1D single.

Now Naughty Boy is weighing in on the whole thing, giving his perspective about why Zayn quit and the subsequent drama that unfolded. He recently told Heat his side of the story, explaining: "There seems to be some needless provoking going on. [Louis] was deliberately adding to the provoking. I don't think that's fair. Especially on Zayn, that's not fair. Right now, there needs to be calm. He could have said that to me privately. Doing it openly is another act of provocation that's not needed."

As for Zayn being spotted in the recording studio after claiming he wanted to be a "normal" guy, Naughty Boy stands by the singer, saying: "I've been his friend. He needs one. Just because we were seen at my studio – you [don't] necessarily just make music. People seem to forget that he's under so much stress. Which is why he left the tour. There's a lot going on."

He added, "People get caught up - what he has done is to be normal. Sometimes being normal is to try and sort things out with your fiancée or hang around with a friend. That is normal."
