1D Gets Scolded For Casino Trip
One Direction have become known for their clean-cut image, but their antics off the stage paint another picture.
Niall Horan revealed that when he and his bandmates — Harry Styles, Louis Tomlinson, Zayn Malik and Liam Payne— each turned 18 (the legal gambling age in the United Kingdom), they celebrated with a trip to the casino.
But when the British boy band gambled off a large amount of cash, their management team wasn’t too pleased, to say the least.
“Like most of the stupid things we do, it seemed like it was a good idea at the time,” Horan said in an interview with We Love Pop magazine. “We just thought, ‘We’re 18, this is the first time we’ve been able to spend a bit of money in weeks because we’ve been on the road.'”
Horan won a “reasonable” amount of £100 (the equivalent of $155.98), but quickly stopped his winning streak. As for his pals, the Irish singer had “no comment.”
“Let’s just say it got a bit ugly and a lot of money was lost. A lot,” Horan added. “When our management found out, we got a serious dressing-down about it.”
