English pop singer, songwriter actor and member of boy-band One Direction, Harry Styles has an estimated net worth of $40 million (£25m) as of May 2014 according to Sunday Times Rich List. Styles was born in Cheshire on 1 February 1994. He is probably the most popular member of One Direction. One Direction was established in 2010 with Zayn Malik, Niall Horan, Liam Payne, Harry Styles, and Louis Tomlinson. One Direction, the boyband, have become a worldwide brand, earning millions from CD sales, touring and merchandising. Five became four when Zayn Malik left in March, saying that he wanted to start living his life like a normal 22-year-old.
Styles is the undisputed pin-up of an act that was put together for the 2010 series of X Factor —and they didn’t even win. Yet Simon Cowell saw something in them, signed them and the rest, as they say, is history. According to an executive from Sony said the band would be a $100 million a year business. For every ticket sold for in 2014 UK leg of their world tour, 50% was given to charity. They raised £315,000 for Rays of Sunshine, Teenage Cancer Trust and Stand Up to Cancer, as part of wider giving totalling more than £1.1m.
The English sensation who writes some of One Direction’s songs and rakes in royalties, has had a series of high-profile girlfriends, including singer Taylor Swift and model Kendall Jenner.
