The stars of One Direction have been cashing in and are reportedly now worth at least £50 million each.
The five boys – Niall Horan, Liam Payne, Louis Tomlinson, Harry Styles and Zayn Malik – were put together by the judges on The X Factor back in 2010.
They didn’t actually win the show but have gone on to become arguably X Factor’s biggest success story with global recognition.
The boys went on a break in 2015 shortly after Zayn announced his intention to quit the band.
While they are all working on various projects it seems as though they could just as easily retire in their 20s right now as multi-millionaires.
According to company records, each of the boys is worth at least £50 million – but who’s worth the most?
The Daily Mail newspaper reports that it’s Harry who tops the rankings with £56 million, just eclipsing Liam’s £54 million.
Niall and Zayn are both given a worth of £51 million each leaving Louis last with ‘only’ £50 million.
A source told the newspaper: “Almost from the off the boys were extremely canny when it came to matters of the purse. They received sound financial advice straight away, and none of them have been reckless with their earnings.
“The plan was always to get to this situation, and have the freedom to pursue what they really wanted. In ten years’ time, they could easily be worth £100 million each. It really is quite incredible.”
