After apparently snubbing Boy George by not knowing who he is, Harry appears to have awoken some rage in the legendary singer.

Taking to Twitter this morning, Boy George decided to tell that world that he thinks Hazza will be the first to leave One Direction.

He tweeted: "I reckon Harry Styles will leave One Direction! You heard it here first!"

Erm, we're pretty sure we've heard that kind of rubbish before, Boy George.

Regardless, One Direction's fans were quick off the mark to respond to his tweet, sending a reel of abuse at the star.

He later tried to simmer the feud, adding: "Don't hate on me for keeping the spirit of @onedirection very much alive!

"I come from a place of love! Tweets are asides! Nothing more! Public sneezes!" [so many exclamation marks!!!!!!]

It later emerged that Harry apparently had no idea who Boy George was when the star asked for a picture with him for his niece.

And after the debacle this morning, he added: "At least next time we meet he will have have a vague idea of who I am! Lol!"

The feud had already kicked off during last night's BRITs, when Liam Payne reportedly refused to pose with Boy George and the boys' minder asked him to leave.

He received a barrage of abuse after tweeting: "Top marks to Harry Styles for stopping for a picture with my niece and Bo**ox's to Liam and the disrespectful w**ker of a minder!"
