Many people still find it hard to believe how well the One Direction boys are doing for themselves, considering that they were all rejected as solo artists on The X Factor. Fortunately though, someone had the foresight to put these five rejects together and the rest, as they say, is history.
One Direction are the biggest boyband on the planet and have raked in the cash for the past couple of years. Now, One DIrection singer Zayn Malik has decided to splash some of that cash on a new home for his mother and three sisters, in his hometown of Bradford.
Zayn confirmed that he spent hundreds of thousands of pounds on the new house and his mother is extremely proud of her son. Malik can be seen making the revelation to his mum in the trailer for the One Direction movie This Is Us, which opens in August.
The trailer sees Zayn Malik's mother break down in tears, saying, "I know that you always used to say, 'I'll get you a house one day when I'm older. But thank you for what you've done for us. I'm so proud of you," while Zayn responds, "Well, get off the phone then before I start crying."
The One Direction movie This Is Us opens on August 29 in the US and then on August 30 in the UK.
