One Direction's Liam Payne "spends £1.2m" on a bottle of champagne

With the huge success One Direction have found around the world, it’s no surprise that they can afford to splash out on expensive drinks. But more than a million pounds on a bottle of bubbly? Surely not…

Welcome to the most jaw-dropping story you will read today.

It seems we've underestimated quite how much money Liam Payne has earned since hitting the big time.

The One Direction star is reported to have splashed out a whopping £1.2million on the world's priciest bottle of bubbly on a night out in London.

Liam, 19, was celebrating rapper WIZKID's 24th birthday at Funky Buddha when Taste Of Diamonds was uncorked.

Alexander Amosu posted a photo of Liam posing with his friend while pouring a glass.

He captioned the pic: "@wizkidayo & Liam (one direction) enjoying taste of diamonds @goutdediamants at his birthday party. Launching in NIGERIA end of this month with this Swarovski Diamond bottle edition."

The bottle of the extravagant fizz is so expensive because it has a huge gem set in a solid white gold label.

We still see nothing wrong with a nice bottle of Cava!

It's no surprise that Liam is being generous with his wallet - the 1D boys have raked in millions since coming third on The X Factor 2010.

And things are only set to get more lucrative with the upcoming release of their much-hyped new single, Best Song Ever.

On top of that, the boys' documentary-style film This Is Us is expected to earn them a lot of cash.

Many believe it will emulate the success of Justin Bieber's Never Say Never movie, which earned over $98 million at the box office following its release in February 2011.

A source told The Sun when news of This Is Us emerged last year: "US film experts are speculating that the 1D film would be similar to Justin's movie and will be a big money-spinner for the boys."

Liam has already made an estimated £10million fortune since joining 1D - £5m of which was in the last year.

Impressive stuff.​
