One Direction’s Louis Tomlinson has had to change his phone number after receiving “some disgusting stuff” on WhatsApp.

Tomlinson isn’t the first member of the band, who are currently on hiatus (though many speculate that they’ve no plans to return), to receive abusive messages on his phone. Back in May, Niall Horan described how he has been “receiving messages off a group of fans” which have been “keeping me awake at night.” He continues, “They have been nothing but abusive. Saying things you wouldn’t even believe about me and my family.”

Now, Tomlinson has begun experiencing the same thing, forcing him to change his number. Though there is a silver lining - we might be seeing a rap battle from the pair soon. Actually, is that a silver lining?

This comes just a few weeks after Niall Horan hit out at a fan for taking photos of him sleeping on a plane.

After seeing the picture, the popstar tweeted, “I think this shit is unreal. I mean if you can’t sleep on a plan without people taking photo go you, what can u do.” His sentiment has been retweeted more than 82,000 times.
