Louis Tomlinson, Niall Horan, Liam Payne, Zayn Malik and Harry Styles have apparently been handed £2m each by record label boss Simon Cowell following their worldwide success.
"Simon Cowell wants them to know what they deserve. They have been a massive success, what they have achieved is phenomenal. Simon thinks they are the hardest-working people in pop at the moment," a source told The People.
"They have made him an absolute fortune and he is incredibly proud. He always saw potential in them and now it's paying off. Girls across the globe simply love them."
One Direction became the first British group to enter at the top of the Billboard 200 with their debut album Up All Night, and recently sold out their headline gig at Madison Square Garden in New York City in one hour.
Debut single 'What Makes You Beautiful', which reached number one in the UK and won 'Best British Single' at the Brit Awards in February, has also sold over a million copies in the US.
