The Wanted's Tom Parker will be the first member of the band to go solo after their split but won't be backed by their manager Scooter Braun
The Wanted's Tom Parker will be the first member of the band to go solo after their split.
The 'All Time Low' hitmakers have announced they will break-up after their upcoming 'Word of Mouth' tour and Tom has already recorded a song with N-Dubz star Fazer.
According to The Sun newspaper, the tune will be released in February, but Tom thought his solo track would be a side project to the band.
He's going it alone, while Max George and Nathan Sykes have been given solo deals by Justin Bieber's mentor Scooter Braun, who currently manages The Wanted.
Max has spoken out about the "tension" within the band - which also features Siva Kaneswaran and Jay McGuiness - and said their personal lives drove them apart.
He said: "We used to be such a brotherly pact, but it started to feel like it wasn't The Wanted any more."
Tom wasn't impressed by Max's decision to talk about their arguments and posted on Twitter: "F*** you and f*** you!"
Siva's fiancée Nareesha McCaffrey also said she was "absolutely 100 per cent shocked and disappointed" by Max and the revelations.
Meanwhile, Jay is trying to stay focused on the band reuniting for their final tour which kicks off in March.
