Nathan Sykes: Ignore gossip

Nathan Sykes has warned fans not to believe rumours about him.

Earlier this week it was reported The Wanted singer had split with his singer girlfriend Ariana Grande. He now seems to have responded to the gossip via a cryptic tweet.

"Don't even know what to say ...hiiiiiiiiiiiiii," he wrote.

"Ooooo I know what to say! Don't believe anything until you hear it from me or one of the boys. Everyyyoneee calmmmmm doooowwwwnnnnn (sic)."

The Wanted star had been relatively quiet on Twitter recently, with his last message written on December 10.

In a further emotional post he also informed his followers that his granddad has passed away.

"R.I.P Grandad. Gonna miss you. Hope I can continue to make you proud," he wrote.

"Hi everyone! Sorry it has been so long. Feels like I have forgotten how to work twitter (sic)."

The 20-year-old singer attached a picture of himself with grandfather, showing both of them smiling in the black and white snap.

Nathan and Ariana, also 20, started dating in August, but during an interview with radio station 93.3 FLZ, the US starlet seemed to confirm they had called it a day.

"You're a little behind," she apparently said.

"We're really good friends."

The synopsis on the station's website, as well as a tweet reporting the split, has since been deleted.

Ariana hasn't addressed the rumours and is instead focusing on her career.

"Can't decide what I want my next single to be....... I can't make up my mind (sic)," she tweeted.

Nathan isn't the only member of The Wanted dealing with personal issues.

Earlier this month it was revealed the band had cancelled their European tour dates after “unforeseeable changes" in scheduling.

This comes after news Max George had to drop out of US shows due to "family matters".

"To let all our #TWFanmily know, @MaxTheWanted headed home to attend some family matters & won't be with us for the rest of the trip," a message informed fans on The Wanted's official Twitter page.

"Thank you so much for all your lovely tweets and messages of support for @MaxTheWanted we know he really appreciates it. x."

    All-new 2015 Subaru Outback reestablishes higher ground

    Much of Subaru’s modern day success in America can be attributed to one car: the Outback. Born in 1994 as a response to the growing popularity of SUVs, the Outback established a winning formula of combining a high-riding suspension, butch body cladding and big round fog lights to its comfortable, no-nonsense Legacy wagon. It is the kind of unique product that only a quirky company like Subaru could build, and was one that kept Subaru from slipping into ubiquity even as traditional SUVs and crossovers have taken over the world.

    For the record, it's the year 2014. I mention that in case someone reading this story about a push to replace horses with motorized carriages thinks they've stumbled onto some archival piece by accident. It's been more than 100 years since the first vehicles began to trundle around Manhattan, but the last remaining vestiges of horse-powered transport in the city could be nigh — if the backers of a massive electric wagon get their way.

    By Narae Kim JINDO South Korea (Reuters) - More than 280 people, many of them students from the same high school, were missing after a ferry capsized off South Korea on Wednesday, in what could be the country's biggest maritime disaster in over 20 years. It was not immediately clear why the Sewol ferry listed heavily on to its side and capsized in apparently calm conditions off South Korea's southwest coast, but some survivors spoke of a loud noise prior to the disaster.
