Niall Horan's brother claims his Twitter account was 'hacked' after tweets appearing to have criticised his famous singer sibling.

The One Direction star's elder sibling Greg - who has over 1.4m Twitter followers -yesterday fuelled speculation of a family feud after appearing to hit out at the singer for not visiting his nephew Theo, after the 15-month-old was hospitalised in Dublin earlier this month after sustaining a nasty burn.

In tweets which have now been deleted, Greg wrote: "I wonder when Niall is calling to see theo I do wonder.

"Sick of being hurt by loved ones really am. (sic)"

However today he posted a tweet claiming his account was hacked.

"Guys I'm sorry for all but iv been Hacked who ever it is please stop it now (sic)," he wrote.

Little Theo has his own website - where fans can buy coins to commemorate his recent first birthday - and even his own twitter account.

After suffering the burn on a range fire, a tweet read: "I had a little accident and I have to go to Crumlin Hospital a little sad and my mammy very sad x. (sic)"
