Source: Bang Showbiz NewsThe Wanted think One Direction are being immature by taking their rivalry too far and have challenged their rivals to confront them in New York.Following Max George and Zayn Malik's feud on twitter - which culminated in the 'Little Things' singer calling infamous lothario Max "Chlamydia boy" - The Wanted star has invited his chart rival to confront their issues when they come face-to-face at a concert in the States. Speaking backstage at the Detroit Jingle Bell Ball, Max told Channel 955: "I'm not sure what his problem is to be honest. It started off that I thought we were just having a bit of banter, but he seemed to get a bit serious."I tried to palm it off as being friendly again, but you can only take so many insults and eventually I just said, 'Alright listen - if you've got a problem, come and see me in New York when we're there doing a gig together and we'll sort it out'."The older boy band think their younger 1D rivals - who previously branded them "two-faced" - are immature and insist their dig at Max wasn't founded on truth, despite him breaking up with girlfriend Michelle Keegan after allegations he cheated on her. Jay McGuiness, 22, joked: "I don't think it's based on any fact. It's like when kids in the playground go 'Poo Breath!' - rarely has that kid actually eaten faeces. I think he was just taking a stab in the dark."Max, 24, added: "I think he's probably just finished Sex Ed so he's like 'Yeah whooo!' "
