We all know that One Direction earn a sh*load of money each year , particularly when they were still together, but it turns out it also cost a sh*tload to actually be part of the group, too!
Maintaining the One Direction brand for a year used to set the boys back a whopping $43.2 million NZD before they decided to take a break, reports The Sun.
But what was all the cash being spent on? Mainly styling and hair.
Their On the Road Again world tour ran up a 19.1million NZD bill, and other expenses included $82,583.45 NZD on personal styling, $1.4million NZD on travelling and meals and $17,769.67 NZD on.. bank charges?
They also spent $267,489.85 NZD on office admin, $1.44 million NZD on legal matters, $461,093.64 NZD on crew costs and $173,053.82 NZD on insurance.
But all those costs are nothing compared to the $54.5 million NZD that they earn in PROFIT.
A source said to The Sun: “If you’re going to be part of a musical juggernaut such as One Direction that makes $103 million before tax then you’re inevitably going to incur a few expenses along the way.
“But it’s fascinating to see just how and where the money was being distributed.
“The next accounts will be for the first year the band didn’t release any new music, so profits will inevitably be down. But so will hairstyling costs.”
Now we just gotta hope they come back one day... dreams are free!
