Sensitive Harry Styles upset as old friends in Holmes Chapel call him a d*ckhead and 'that tw*t'
The 1D star's former classmate Will Sweeny says some people aren't happy with Harry, 18, because they think he's 'dropped them' for fame and fortune.
'There's been a lot of jealousy and resentment in Holmes Chapel towards Harry, particularly towards his success,' says Will, 19.
'People call him a d*ckhead and refer to him as that tw*t. It's so sad. A lot of these people used to be his friends but now they hate him.
'It really upsets Harry because he's a sensitive guy.'
Drummer Will - whose band White Eskimo was fronted by Harry before he auditioned for The X Factor in 2010 - says the singer doesn't expect to be fawned over when he returns home to visit his loved ones.
He'd rather people completely ignored his star status.
'All Harry wants is for people to treat him like a normal person. He still loves it that he can come home and his family treat him like normal,' Will tells The People.
'He just wishes everyone else would do the same, especially those who have turned their back on him.'
