Uh oh! While the UK group One Direction was on tour in the US, Australia and New Zealand some of the guys were home sick and ended up racking up a $22,000 phone bill! Here’s what a source revealed to the Daily Mirror:
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 [Horan] and Liam [Payne] 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.
