6 Times the One Direction Guys Were Caught in Legal Drama
It seems as though it was just yesterday when we watched the young and innocent boys of One Direction take on the X Factor stage in hopes that their wildest dreams would come true. Flash forward to seven years after those initial auditions, and we’ve now lived through not only their years of extreme superstardom, but we (sadly) witnessed their eventual downfall as well.
Although the band is no longer together (we know… we’re sorry for the reminder), we can still reminisce about all of the times that they were, right? And while it’d be wonderfully nostalgic to look back at all of the fun times the boys have had together over the years, let’s not forget that they also found themselves in some deep legal trouble on more than one occasion. Oh, you forgot? Allow us to remind you:
When another artist thought "Drag Me Down" ripped off one of his tracks.
When you're part of the most famous boy band in the world at one time, it's no surprise that people come out of the woodwork and make crazy claims in an attempt to gain a profit. The same is true for artist Amir Shaheed-Edwards (a.k.a. Bravo), who claimed earlier this month that the song "Drag Me Down" is "essentially identical" to his song, "All My Life," which he released on Soundcloud in 2015.
According to TMZ, Bravo decided to sue Syco Entertainment and is also requesting that they stop selling the song. Like, okay... now he's dragging all of us down!
