Taylor Swift branded the new Yoko Ono

Wellington, December 11 (ANI): Taylor Swift has been branded the Yoko Ono of One Direction over her romance with singer Harry Styles.

The Beatles split in 1970 and many fans blame Yoko's influence on her husband John Lennon for the disintegration of Britain's most famous band.

The Sun reports that tensions "reached a boiling point" this weekend, when the boyband had to fly from New York to perform at the Jingle Bell Ball in London.

Styles went on Swift's private jet, while the rest of his bandmates had to fight through rabid fans to get to their plane with Liam Payne, 19, even suffering painful injuries in the scrum.

"There was loads of room for the rest of the band in Taylor's luxury jet but he didn't even suggest they travelled together," a source told the British newspaper.

"It's really not far off from the Yoko situation." (ANI)
