Be careful what secrets you tell your friends. That's the lesson One Direction member Harry Styles is learning after pal Ed Sheeran gave a candid interview to a New Zealand outlet in which he revealed that Styles leaked his own nude photo back in 2012, despite the fact that Styles denied it at the time. (Of course he did.) "Did you know that Harry leaked that picture himself? He leaked his own picture. I think that's amazing," Sheeran tells ZM Online. "He was just like, 'No one knows,' so I'm just going to tell them."

And if viral visual evidence isn't enough confirmation for you, Sheeran — who wrote One Direction's hit "Little Things" — would like the world to know that Styles is in fact quite well-endowed. In case you were wondering. "[Harry] definitely hasn't got a little thing, so no, I did not write 'Little Things' about little things," he says.
