The guys from One Direction are the richest British celebrities under the age of 30!
One Direction lost Zayn Malik to his solo career, but that doesn’t mean the boy band has lost fans or success. Quite the opposite – the Britons are actually gaining more fame and making more money than before Malik quit the band.
According to official reports, the four guys – Harry Styles, Liam Payne, Louis Tomlinson and Niall Horan – are still in their early 20s, but they have already climbed on top of the success ladder. Or at least on top of Heat’s ladder of the richest British celebrities under the age of 30 years. The band has landed on number 1 with the whopping net worth of £80 million (more than $121 million in USD). One Direction have been in Heat’s prestigious list for the past three years, although many fans speculated that the band would be ruined and fall apart after Zayn Malik quit.
Earlier this November One Direction released their fifth studio album, entitled Made in the A.M. The first two singles from Made in the A.M. – Drag Me Down and Perfect are already topping music charts all over the world, including the top spots of Billboard’s Hot 100. On the other hand, Zayn Malik is also amongst the celebs in the top 10 of Heat’s list. The 22 year old Brit enters the list under number 8 with £20 million (nearly $30 million in USD). He and his former band members share the top 10 with Ed Sheeran, Adele, Alex Turner and the guys from Mumford & Sons. The other four British celebs on Heat’s top 10 are Robert Pattinson, Emma Watson, Daniel Radcliffe and Rupert Grint – all of which came to prominence thanks to the success they gained after starring in the Harry Potter movies.
