One Direction suing condom brand

ONE Direction's management are considering suing a condom brand who brought out an unofficial range based on the group, although the band are said to have found it "hilarious".

The US company has brought out the unofficial merchandise - which has the cheeky name 'One Erection - Up All Night' - and while the 'Story of My Life' hitmakers saw the funny side their management was less impressed.

An insider told the Daily Star Sunday newspaper: "The boys heard about the condoms and found them hilarious. They even joked about buying a few packets for a laugh.

"But their management team aren't seeing the funny side. They are considering bringing in lawyers to stop them shamefully exploiting the band to sell condoms.

"It's only a small US online firm so management weren't too concerned at first but they are still worried the range damages the group's image."

It is also reported that the band have rejected various offers from bigger brands to release their own range.

The source added: "What makes it worse is 1D have turned down various big-bucks offers to bring out their own official range.

"So they aren't happy someone else is cashing in on their sex symbol status."
