Perez Hilton spoke with B96/Chicago on Friday, August 24 and gave a play by play recap of what went down between him and One Direction, as well as his personal updates on the celebrity world’s reaction.

It all began with a goodbye tweet from One Direction’s Zayn Malik:

Perez Hilton saw the tweet, and reacted. “What happened was that I just reported the facts in the way I’ve been doing things recently; fun, sassy, opinionated, but not nasty or mean,” Perez said.

“[One Direction] just didn’t like what I had to say. I reported first that [Zayn Malik] deleted his Twitter account. Just after doing that report I was a trending topic — which is awesome, loved it,” Perez shared.

“Then I also reported that Zayn was caught in an alleged cheating scandal with this video that I posted which showed him hitting on a girl that’s not his girlfriend. And you think that the thought of him being single would be a nice thing for all these girls, but apparently not.”

Perez added, “A lot of these fans were sending me death threats. I literally retweeted seven in a row.” Then he thanked them for their ardent attentions.

At least he can say he beat everyone else to the punch. It is his job, right?

“I did forget one piece of information,” Perez added. “I think what really upset them was a while ago, I was in London in July and I was doing interviews. I was asked about One Direction, and I said I thought that in the next year, or year-and-a-half, they’d break up. I said I thought Zayn would be the first one to leave the group for a variety of reasons. He was photographed in Miami wearing a t-shirt that said ‘F U.’ He was photographed even more recently in London flipping the bird, and all of these things of him acting out, and this is the latest. Then I said ‘I called it.’ I always said that he’d be the first to leave the group, and this [leaving Twitter] is just another indication that I am right.”

Is it true that Miley Cyrus, Britney Spears and Lady Gaga have unfollowed @PerezHilton on Twitter because of all this?

“No, in fact Miley tweeted yesterday that she never even followed me, so she’s not sure why people were saying she unfollowed me, and that’s the truth.”

So, what happens after all this drama. Zayn Malik returns to Twitter.

A lot can happen in 24 hours!
