ONE Direction’s worth is expected to double in value by next year.
Sony Music UK’s boss revealed that Niall Horan, Liam Payne, Louis Tomlinson, Zayn Malik and Harry Styles - who are signed to Simon Cowell’s Syco in Britain and Columbia in America - are already worth £32million. Nick Gatfield said: ‘’We fully expect to double that £32million figure next year.
‘’The team around them, including musicians, stylists, producers, tour managers and so on, is 90-strong,’’ he continues. That’s 90 jobs created by these five boys.’’ Louis, 20, bought £2.5million, five-bedroom house in North London, while Zayn, 19, recently snapped up a £2.2million property. Harry, 18, spent £575,000 on an East London residence. –ES
