Courtney Webb says that since claiming that she did rude stuff with coupled up Zayn Malik behind his girlfriend, Perrie Edwards', back she has been inundated with abuse.

"One American girl left me six voicemails in an hour saying she was going to kill me. It's really scary."

Leon Anderson, also a mate of Zayn's, was so angry that Courtney has sold her story he posted her number on Twitter, eventually deleting it after three hours.

She said: "Leon's a nasty piece of work. It was Zayn who cheated, not me, and Leon let it happen."

Well, takes two to tango.

So to clarify, Courtney Webb is saying that she has received a bunch of horrid messages after selling her story... so decided to sell this one too.

Will she ever learn?

Meanwhile, there is huge speculation that Courtney's photographic evidence isn't even the real Zayn.

Twitter users have pointed out the subtle differences between the tip of real Zayn's nose and the nose in Courtney's alleged snap.

Oh, and the waitress has also been getting her fair share of virtual wrath on Twitter to with Directioners refusing to believe her story.

One user posted: ‘This hate on Zayn needs to stop. Do you really think Zayn would cheat? No. He has respect for women and he loves Perrie. End of."

Another agreed, adding: "You are a freaking idiot if you believe that Zayn cheated on Perrie. I will personally haunt you in your sleep and maybe kill you."

How charming.
