...by calling him a geek. Ha.
DO YOU HEAR THAT BOYS? YOU'RE GIVING US A RUDDY STOMACH ULCER.
Luckily, there does appear to be some form of light at the end of the boyband wars tunnel - because not only did Nathan Sykes confess to us that he 'loves' Niall Horan, but Zayn Malik has used twitter to reach out to Max George.
'What did he say?' we hear you ask. 'Did he write him a little poem? Tell him his head looks nothing like an egg? Ask if both bands could have a televised naked mud-wrestling match?'
Actually, he called him a geek. Um...
Yup, Max tweeted a snap of himself cosying up to Usher, along with the caption: 'Me and usher getting messy!!!' to which Zayn replied: '@MaxTheWanted: geek ..'
He's a man of few words, is our Zayn.
Still, we're sure you'll agree with us when we say there's nothing like a little light-hearted banter to heal a rift-rift between two very good looking male specimens.
Is this the dawning of a new era? Or will Louis 'sassypants' Tomlinson refuse to join the ceasefire?
