first of all, i very very very highly doubt that they will be released from their contract as a result of the nudes leaking. yes, it’s legally considered child pornography, but that post was probably just made in order to get people to stop fucking spreading the nudes around even more. and let’s be honest, 5sos is a rising band on the top of the charts and is capital records actually was dumb enough to release them, another one would snatch them up. The music industry is less about law and more about power and profit. Plus, i’m sure cal has a damn good attorney.
As for the boys’ reactions, i’d like to think they’d be supportive and understanding. They were never in this for the fame, and even something like being released from their contract wouldn’t stop them from pursuing music. Calum never intentionally got his nudes leaked, and so far, ashton, luke, michael, they’ve all been really great to him about it. They’ve known each other for years and years and wouldn’t throw that friendship away because of this:)
