Max George, Siva Kaneswaran, Jay McGuiness, Tom Parker and Nathan Sykes aka The Wanted officially announced they were taking a break following their U.S. tour's end in May.
Now, most of the members have been hush-hush since the split, except for Max!
The unofficial bad boy of the group wasn't shy about expressing his bitter feelings in a recent interview with The Sun, basically throwing 3/5 of his band under the bus:
"Our personal lives drove us apart — things started to happen and we were drifting….We had a very difficult conversation. Our manager Scooter Braun asked us who would want to take a step out after the tour and try to do their own thing. Me and Nathan [Sykes] both said we have our own ambitions. We were more prepared than the others because we'd looked at how things had been going with the band over the past few months. No one should be surprised.”
HOLY shizz, the gloves are off!
So while EXCLUSIVELY interviewing Siva Kaneswaran yesterday, we obvi had to ask about Max's comments!
He explained all the other guys found out about the basic bashing via social media, and were completely shocked! Trying to remain positive, he offered up a suggestion for how to remedy the situation:
Okay, so we've been Nancy Drew-ing this relationshizz pretty hard…
And we might actually have an answer about Ariana Grande and Nathan Sykes' status!
Rumors have been swirling this week that the former flames are an item again - especially after The Wanted announced their band breakup-ish!
A report surfaced on January 20th that Nathan had a secret meet-up with Ari at her El Lay home - before jetting back to London!
That same day The Way singer tweeted the following piece to our love puzzle:
We feel like they're breaking up with us in an "it's not you, it's us" style!
It looks like fans will have to say goodbye to Siva Kaneswaran, Max George, Nathan Sykes, Jay McGuiness, and Tom Parker as a group, for now!
The Wanted has officially announced that they'll be taking a break "for a while" to pursue personal projects after their U.S. Word of Mouth Tour wraps!
Hey, at least they didn't cancel it all together like the European leg!
The boys sugar-coated the important announcement by saying they'll be debuting their new single and music video for Glow In The Dark off of the group's latest album - but that barely cushions the blow.
In a statement on the site, a rep for the band explained:
Well, this is shocking…
Ariana Grande and The Wanted's Nathan Sykes have called it quits on their adorbzies love affair, but we won't be seeing her ex Jai Brooks shedding a tear about it!
Actually, Jai was never Nariana's biggest fan since she supposedly dumped him for Nathan back in September.
Jai told Us Weekly:
Oooo Max George better watch out!!
Once the entire world gets a glimpse of these scantily clad photos of his GF (and Adam Levine's ex) Nina Agdal, she might steal his title of The Wanted, LOLz!!
The 21-year-old model was spotted posing in several enticing bikinis in Mexico on Monday for Sauvage Swimwear, and we're not even sure if her seXXXy modeling did the brand any favors because her hot bod totally distracts from the swimwear!!
Bet Max George is wishing he was that log right about now, since that'd be a super normal thing to wish in this situation. Ha!!
Keep up the good work, lady!
