One Direction's Simon Cowell Phone Number Ban

The 'What Makes You Beautiful' singers are not allowed access to their X Factor boss' number.

Simon Cowell won’t share his phone number with the One Direction boys out of fear that his digits will be leaked online.

It comes after X Factor winner Matt Cardle had his phone number posted on Twitter by Louis Tomlinson and Harry Styles.

"It was an accident, don’t judge us," Harry told The Sun.

"I don’t think Simon would take it as well as Matt did."

So the music mogul has put a stop to anyone sharing his number with the group for fear that the same thing will happen to him.

One Direction's new single 'What Makes You Beautiful' is due out on Sunday 11th September.
