Since the video was released online of One Direction members Zayn Malik and Louis Tomlinson smoking drugs Simon Cowell has kept hush hush until now.
The music motel has spoken about how he feels about the boys doing drugs but it seems he’s willing to forget and support them.
“What I can say is that they’re the hardest-working boys I’ve ever worked with. They still haven’t changed. They’re really respectful of their fans. They’re a great British export [and] they’ve been a joy to work with. I’ve worked with a lot of artists in the past who do lose the plot, who do lose respect for their fans, they’ve never done that.”
They must be so relieved that they have Simon on their side because at the end of the day he’s the boss and what he says goes with these boys.
