London: One Direction star Louis Tomlinson sent almost half of his first "X Factor" pay cheque home, according to his mother Johannah Deakin.
The 24-year-old star, who is now a multi-millionaire, earned just 55 pounds as his first wage on the reality TV show and sent 25 pounds home, reported Female First.
After a fan praised Tomlinson on Twitter, his mother Johannah Deakin responded, "Hey thank you. Louis is a super kind person. Not many people know that his first wage on XF was 55 pounds - he sent home 25 pounds. Not that I asked of course. He has always looked after his family & he always will (sic)."
