As One Direction’s “Kiss You” video hits two million likes on YouTube, becoming the twelfth One Direction video to do so, it’s time to celebrate the recent achievements of Harry Styles, Liam Payne, Louis Tomlinson, and Niall Horan, who continue to rake in money and achieve successes during their much-discussed hiatus.
Sugarscape reports that Niall Horan’s business, Treaty Media Ltd. has become very profitable indeed in the last year. A rag from Niall’s homeland, the Irish Mirror, discovered that Niall’s media company had accumulated profit of £5.96 million at the end of September 2015.
The Sugarscape reporters muse that Niall is well-placed to continue living the high life throughout the One Direction hiatus and beyond.
“The £3 million jump in profits from this year to last shows that even if Nialler spent the next year leisurely strolling around a golf course, he’d still be making enough cash to feast on lobster and live in an actual palace.”
Harry Styles is just about to begin filming the Netherlands segments of Christopher Nolan’s Dunkirk. Some film insiders were surprised when Harry secured a part in the Word War II film, and there were whispers about whether Styles may have gotten the part because he is such a crowd-puller and would shift so many tickets.
Seventeen reports that Dunkirk’s casting director came forward to slam the rumors that Harry got the part “because he is a pop star.” Papsidera insisted that Styles was cast because the Dunkirk team was impressed with his performances.
“Harry was absolutely right for the role… As an actor he is unknown, but his readings made him an obvious choice. We thought he was fresh and interesting and he won the role…If anything, [Harry Styles’ pop star status] was more of a detriment… Because it could bring the wrong message and we don’t want people pulled out of the film because of who they are.”
Harry Styles’ film career is in full swing, and he is still being celebrated for making a splash on the last One Direction tour.
Today, Harry was featured in an MTV Snapchat celebrating the epic falls of celebrities. Harry was awarded the honor of “best fall.”
Even though every single member of One Direction at one time or another has fallen on stage (and a lot, too, if YouTube is any indication), the honor of best fall goes to Harry Styles, who during the On The Road Again tour San Diego took a fall when his mic stand got caught on the floor. Womp, womp.
Louis Tomlinson’s latest accolade might also raise some eyebrows — the family of Louis’ ex Briana Jungwirth are reportedly saying that Louis and Briana conceived a “miracle baby” in adorable young Freddie.
OK reports that Briana was raised a Christian, and when she became pregnant with Freddie, the family regarded it as a blessing and a “miracle gift.”
“Louis Tomlinson’s son Freddie has been hailed a ‘miracle’ by mum Briana Jungwirth… A family friend close to the 24-year-old has reportedly revealed how Briana and her family see the tot as ‘a blessing from above.'”
Briana had apparently always told people that she did not want children. After she met Louis Tomlinson and became pregnant, she prayed that everything would work out for the best, reports OK.
“Briana always said she never wanted children but as soon as she fell pregnant she saw it as her own miracle… She sat down and weighed up all her options and prayed it’d all work out… She was very positive about everything and she would tell us we all have to live in hope, because there’s no living at all if we live in fear.”
As for Liam Payne, he sits at the center of a swirl of rumors about a second One Direction baby.
Liam Payne and his girlfriend Cheryl Fernandez-Versini are said to be getting “very serious,” and Liam apparently spends most of his time helping Cheryl with the details of her divorce or cooking meals for her.
Media Mass reports that Cheryl was spotted with what may have been a baby bump recently.
“Speculation is rampant that Liam Payne is expecting a baby with long-time partner after she was spotted with a prominent stomach bulge on Tuesday evening (June 21, 2016), during romantic dinner date nearby his place [sic].”
An eyewitness apparently reported that Liam’s girlfriend made toasts with water instead of wine, which is “highly unusual.”
“She TWICE made toasts… by drinking water instead of wine… [it is] highly unusual [to] toast with anything but a full glass of wine.”
