One Direction ran up £14,000 in mobile phone bills, reports The Mirror. During recent tours of North America and Australia as they logged on to Twitter and Facebook, as well as phoning and texting home: ‘Like most teenagers, the boys are obsessed with all things social media. They’re also encouraged to tweet by management to keep them interacting with fans but Niall and Liam in particular got pretty homesick during their travels and regularly called home.

When the bills landed on their doormat, the guys were utterly stunned and slightly devastated thinking they’d have to fork out themselves. In the end they got called in for a meeting and given a lecture on finances, and how to handle their money. It is vital wealth does not go to their heads. Their bills got signed off and the boys will not be making the same mistake again.’ Since coming third on the X Factor in 2010, they have each earned around £400,000 but will be instant millionaires when royalties are paid out in 2013.

    lol why would they not get unlimited??

  • l?veislouder

    I somehow don’t believe this….. Why wouldn’t they all just have a completely unlimited plan?

    Also, didn’t they all get 2 million pounds each as a bonus last year?

    The million-dollar question (excuse the pun lol).
    Anyway, the £2 million was a signing bonus to the group as a whole, to be split by the guys. That would be £400,000 for each boy, which would be $632,680, for anyone who was wondering. It doesn’t seem like a lot, but it makes sense, considering they’ve only had one (or two?) headlining tours, and they’re about to go on their first international tour. They’ll definitely make bank come 2013, no question.

    If this is true though, I don’t really like that they were bailed out; that’s what put America in such shit, bailing out the big companies. If you rack up a bill yourself, you should pay for the expenses, not have someone else take care of it. That’s just my opinion.

    I think Uncle Simon paid for it as a “congratulations” to them.
