1D is allegedly getting grounded by Simon — find out why!

After one too many nights of wild partying, British boy band One Direction is getting a time out!

“Simon’s a control freak with One Direction,” an insider told Star. “He’s come down hard on them for spending too much time chasing girls, drinking booze and acting like clowns in night clubs.”

Niall Horan, Zayn Malik, Liam Payne, Harry Styles and Louis Tomlinson were recently spotted drinking alcohol during a promotional trip, and The X Factor judge wasn’t too pleased.

“Simon told them that to stay on top, they needed to put their noses to the grindstone and quite drinking,” the insider revealed. “Simon’s a master image-maker, and he doesn’t want these guys to self-destruct. He wants to keep One Direction squeaky clean.”

Do YOU agree with Simon — should One Direction curb the partying?
