One Direction 'Sign New Three Year Sony Contract'

Financial deal has been put in place to make sure they don't split...

One Direction have allegedly signed a new contract with record label, Sony.

According to The Sun, the financial deal has been put in place to ensure that the Kiss You band stay together for at least another three years.

The contract is said to outline that if one or more of the lads decides to leave during that time period, each member will receive less money than originally thought.

A source explained to the newspaper: "It's a really clever contract that the boys have signed up to. It means they have a real incentive to tough it out and stick together.

"The formal length is for 36 months and an album a year - but the clever part is they get the big pay day after the three years.

"If one of them walks away before then, then all five miss out on the money. They don't miss out on a few quid either, we are talking millions.

"They all get on really well, but it would be the kind of deal that would see them through the worst aggro possible."

While 1D may not be leaving Sony anytime soon, Harry Styles has reportedly parted ways with girlfriend Taylor Swift after having a spat on holiday in the Caribbean.
