BIG NEWS: One Direction are quite rich.

This is because the numbers are tallied from June 2015-June 2016 meaning that a large part of the OTRA Tour is counted within that fortune.

But there's still merch and music sales made during the hiatus included, so it's all quite impressive.

Either way it's nice to know the lads have enough dosh to put a meal on the table and still have change to buy their mums a nice (and probably diamond-encrusted) prezzie this Christmas, isn't it?
