Leaving One Direction may have been the best career move for Zayn Malik. In its rankings of the richest stars under 30 in the UK, Heat Magazine has revealed that Zayn is the richest of the remaining group members. It’s the first time the band has been separated for the rankings, and all current and former members are in the top ten. But Zayn only comes in at number four.
Adele is at the top of the list–and is now Great Britian’s richest female musician ever–but she’s also the oldest. Using expert analysis and a formula accounting for income, Heat estimated her worth at $114 million. Daniel Radcliffe follows her at number two with $91.6 million. He’s joined in the top ten by both of his “Harry Potter” co-stars, Emma Watson and Rupert Grint, at spots six and ten respectively.
Ed Sheeran is a distant third and a newcomer to the rankings. He’s got an $8 million edge on number four Zayn. Louis Tomlinson is the low end of 1D’s financial totem pole. Zayn, Harry Styles, Liam Payne, Niall Horan and Louis are all within $7 million of each other.
