Who Is Naughty Boy Whats With All This One Direction Drama
It appears that the feud between One Direction and Naughty Boy is still going strong.
One Direction were performing in Kansas City as part of their On The Road Again tour when a fan tossed a piñata on stage. NBD except for the fact that the piñata was supposedly decorated with Naughty Boy's face.
Louis then proceeded to stomp on it, Liam sat on it and Niall gave it a good punch.https://twitter.com/seIenaslouis/status/626296771933810688
Here is what the piñata may have looked like up close.
This actually shouldn't come as too big of a surprise for Directioners, because as they know, the band's relationship with Naughty Boy -- who was supposedly producing music for their former member, Zayn Malik -- has been a rocky one.
How rocky? Well, here is a look back at the timeline of drama that has gone down between Naughty Boy, Zayn and 1D.

Many might not be aware, but Zayn Malik and Naughty Boy's friendship goes way back.

Louis was not too happy with the video that Naughty Boy tweeted, calling the move 'inconsiderate.' The two exchanged heated tweets with Naughty Boy claiming it had nothing to do with Zayn. Either way, Louis said it was a way to ' wind up ' the fans.
- April 1, 2015: Zayn's Song Was Not For 1D https://twitter.com/Louis_Tomlinson/status/583150404218830848

After Louis poked fun at a filtered photo of Zayn and Naughty Boy, Zayn fired back at Louis asking him to stop making 'bitchy comments' about his life. Naughty Boy then decided to get in on the action by insulting Louis' singing abilities, which prompted the boy band star to respond, 'How does it feel to be riding on the back of someone else's career?'

- July 20, 2015: Naughty Boy Thought Zayn Was Hacked @zaynmalik/ Twitter
