Zayn Malik’s fortune is less than former One Direction bandmates
Zayn Malik’s fortune is less than the other members of One Direction.
The 24-year-old singer quit the chart-topping boyband in 2015 and went on to launch his own successful solo career but it has been revealed that leaving the band has cost him up to five £5 million.
According to the Sunday Times Rich List, Zayn is worth £35 million, while his former bandmates; Niall Horan, Liam Payne, Harry Styles and Louis Tomlinson, are all worth £40 million each.
The publication stated: "Because he missed the band’s last tour before their hiatus, we put Malik’s fortune a little lower than his former bandmates."
Last year’s list put Zayn’s fortune at £30 million and the rest of One Direction at £33.
Meanwhile, Niall remains confident 1D will reunite in the future.
While the group are currently are on a hiatus as they pursue their own solo projects, Niall is confident they’ll eventually make more music together.
He said: "It’s been a year and a bit already. We don’t want to put a time on it. But when that phone call does come, no matter whoever it comes from, we’re back again.
"At the minute it’s exactly where it was six months ago – we’re doing our own thing.
"You know I’m going to probably end up touring [with his solo music], Harry will probably end up doing the same, probably Liam, probably Louis, that’s a year – time adds up."
Niall split from his mentor Simon Cowell when he embarked on his own solo career, but the star hopes he can maintain a good relationship with the music mogul.
Asked if Simon hates him now, Niall said: "I hope not, please don’t hate me.
"I just felt like I wanted and needed a fresh start.
"It’s a long time to be at a label I wanted to broaden my horizons and try something new.
"We both know that and when One Direction come back we’ll still have albums left to do."
