One Direction vid allegedly shows drugs

Malik

– A representative for One Direction says the band’s lawyers are dealing with a video showing two band members smoking what the singers referred to as an “illegal substance.”

British tabloid The Daily Mail posted the clip Tuesday of Zayn Malik smoking and speaking with Louis Tomlinson, who is filming the video.

“This matter is in the hands of our lawyers,” their publicist said Wednesday.

In the video, 22-year-old Tomlinson says “joint lit, happy days,” and asks his bandmate, “What do you think, Zayn, about that kind of content?”

The 21-year-old Malik responds: “Very controversial.”

Tomlinson says they are in Peru. The British boy band, on an international tour, stopped in Lima, Peru, last month.

The video led some angry fans to post photos of them burning One Direction’s concert tickets. The platinum-selling group has achieved worldwide success since debuting in 2011, thanks to a feverish fan base of young girls.

Tomlinson and Malik reference drugs in a number of ways in the five-minute clip.
