A source close to the group says that Styles was 'annoyed about the whole debacle' following the spread of a video featuring Louis Tomlinson and Zayn Malik.
Harry Styles is not happy following negative headlines surrounding One Direction. On Tuesday, May 27, a video of Louis Tomlinson and Zayn Malik smoking an apparent joint emerged online, tarnishing the image of the mega popular group.
A source then told The Sun (via Mirror) that the curly-haired singer was angry at his bandmates for their behavior. "Harry is annoyed about the whole debacle. This should be one of the biggest weeks of the band's career with the launch of their UK stadium tour. Instead it has been taken over by this controversy. Harry thinks it was a stupid and reckless thing for Louis to allow to be filmed in the first place," the source explained.
The source also said that Styles wasn't "into these antics" and he had been traveling separately from others. "Despite Harry's reputation, he's incredibly professional and mature, and not into these sorts of antics," the source claimed.
Reports suggested that the group might get trouble to get into the U.S. because of the alleged pot smoking behavior and now the members are worried about it. "Everything is about America. It would be a disaster if Zayn and Louis had problems. The authorities could make an example of them," the source continued.
A video featuring Tomlinson and Malik which emerged earlier this week apparently was taken when the boys were in Peru in April. A representative for the group has commented on the video, saying, "The whole situation is in the hands of our lawyers."
