What is Niall Horan’s Net Worth?

Niall Horan is best-known for his time in the now-defunct musical group One Direction. These days, the musician is the center of much speculation about his love life and his possible links to some of Hollywood’s leading ladies. 

Meanwhile, he’s managed to amass quite an impressive fortune. Just how much is Niall Horan’s net worth, and how did he earn this? Let’s take a closer look. 

Horan was with One Direction for several years

Niall Horan, who is from Mullingar, Ireland, joined up with Zayn Malik, Harry Styles, Liam Payne, and Louis Tomlinson to form the group One Direction. Each of the band members originally competed individually on the reality show X Factor in 2010, but they were grouped together to tap into the mega-potential of the “boy band” appeal. Mentored by Simon Cowell, One Direction became massively successful. 

The group released five albums before the band fell apart. One member, Malik, abruptly left their touring schedule in 2015. He first called it a break, but quit the group entirely soon after. While the remaining four members continued in his absence, it was clear that the group faced struggles. They announced a hiatus in 2016, but as the years go by without any signs of a reunion, fans are afraid it may be a permanent break.

At least according to Horan, that’s probably a good thing. He claims the group could have ended up “killing each other” if they had tried to stick it out any longer. 

Horan has been pursuing a solo career 

Following the disbanding of One Direction, Niall Horan branched out into a solo career. In a recent evaluation of the members’ post-One Direction careers, E News calls Horan “the most underestimated when it came to predictions for their post-band life.” With a successful world tour and a Saturday Night Live solo performance behind him, Horan definitely seems to be on the rise as an artist in his own right.

If fans are still holding out for a One Direction reunion, they may find news of Horan’s successful solo career disappointing. However, he’s not the only former member who has successfully broken out on his own, so now fans have plenty of options for continuing to support and follow the group. 

Horan’s personal life is a source of speculation

Fans enjoy trying to decode Niall Horan’s love life. He was spotted out and about with fellow musician Hailee Steinfeld several times and posted some sweet words about her on social media. However, it appeared that the two—who never actually confirmed their relationship in the first place—broke up sometime in late 2018. 

He was equally secretive about other past relationships, but he was romantically linked to Australian model Melissa Whitelaw and singer Ellie Goulding. The latest swirl of rumors have tried to determine if he is dating Selena Gomez. The pair were spotted together, and he called her both a “sweetheart” and a “really good friend” in his social media posts. He also started blushing when he recently got flirty with megastar Lizzo.

Despite all this detective work, the prevailing wisdom seems to be that Horan is, for the moment, single. 

The singer is worth a considerable sum

With this whirlwind of musical history in his past, Niall Horan has managed to earn himself a considerable net worth. One Direction performed under the label 1D Media, which is owned equally and collectively among the five members of the group. Horan gets payments from his previous work with the band as well as his new solo endeavors. All told, the singer is worth a whopping $70 million.

Considering that he has only been active on the music scene for a decade and seems to be rising as a solo artist, it’s an incredibly impressive start to what looks to be a long (and lucrative) career.
