One Direction told off after casino blowout

Niall Horan has revealed that One Direction were told off by their management after losing a substantial amount of money at a Las Vegas casino.

One Direction were given a "dressing down" by their management for losing too much money in a casino.

The Kiss You hitmakers - consisting of Niall Horan, Zayn Malik, Liam Payne, Harry Styles and Louis Tomlinson - decided to celebrate their success with a trip to Las Vegas, the gambling capital of the United States, but were reprimanded when they lost a significant amount of money during their raucous night out.

Horan explained to We Love Pop magazine: "Like most of the stupid things we do, it seemed like it was a good idea at the time."

"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.' I won 100 pounds, which seemed reasonable, then I stopped. But I'll have to say 'no comment' about the others.

"Let's just say it got a bit ugly and a lot of money was lost. A lot. When our management found out, we got a serious dressing down about it," he said.

But although the young band may have their wild moments, they say that they keep each other grounded.

Tomlinson said: "I think that's the beauty of being in a band. Often people who have had fame from such a young age as solo artists find it harder to stay grounded, because it's just them. But with us, we've got each other. The minute one of us falls out of line, another one of us will set them straight!"
