It looks like the clean cut image of the British boyband One Direction is starting to fall apart, especially this week following the recent leaked video on the internet. The video showed band members Louis Tomlinson and Zayn Malik smoking a joint, while suggesting that they had plenty of it available to them.
This has led to a backlash from many of their fans, while it also seems that the band members parents are becoming worried about their behaviour. Louis Tomlinson's dad Troy Austin has opened up about the recent drugs situation, admitting that he is worried that his son could end up going the same way as Amy Winehouse and Peaches Geldof.
Troy explained, "I'm worried for him. I do believe that being famous will be taking its toll on them. I think everyone is concerned it could lead to other things. He said he would never get a tattoo because it was a scar and he'd never smoke because it would damage his vocal cords. He's gone the opposite way and I hope it doesn't get worse. It seems the fame and money have changed him. He's a different person."
He added, "Where are his management? As far as I know they have the best management that money can buy and those people should be protecting them from things like this. Look at people like Peaches (Geldof) and Amy Winehouse and what happened to them. (One Direction) must be able to get their hands on anything because of their position. They are under huge pressure, with a hectic schedule but their attitude in the video makes me cringe. It's very childish."
While there are obviously some very concerned people, there are also many other people suggesting that it was all one big publicity stunt since One Direction have started their UK tour. What do you think?
