One Direction partied so hard in Rio de Janeiro on May 7, 2014, that the police were called to shut down the partying. According to a Daily Mirror report published on May 8, 2014, One Direction had a loud and boisterous rooftop bash at Fasano Hotel in the Ipanema section of Rio. One Direction (the world's biggest-selling act from "The X Factor") has been in Brazil for the South America leg of the group's 2014 "Where We Are" world tour of stadiums.

The partying, which went on into the wee hours of the morning, got so loud that some of the hotel's guests called the police. Andre Duarte, one of the hotel guests, told the Daily Mirror that the party was still raging by 4 a.m.

“I’m so angry," Duarte commented. "The noise has kept us awake all night. We can’t sleep. This is absolutely ridiculous. We came downstairs in our pajamas to ask the hotel to stop the party. We called the police.”

The Daily Mirror reported that after the police arrived, the music was turned down, and the party eventually ended. Music that was heard at the party included reggae tunes from Bob Marley.

While in Brazil, One Direction's Harry Styles, 20, was seen flirting with Brazilian singer Larissa de Macedo Machado, according to the Daily Mirror. She posted a photo of herself with Styles on the Internet. “Harry was necking caipirinha cocktails poolside before joining the party," an unnamed source told the tabloid.

One Direction's Liam Payne, who recently split from girlfriend Sophia Smith after dating her for almost a year, posted Instagram photos of himself partying in Brazil. In one of the photos, Payne (who is 20) looks bleary-eyed and is taking a sip from what appears to be an alcoholic drink.

In Brazil, the minimum legal drinking age is 18 years old (or 19 years old in some Brazilian provinces).

An unnamed source told The Sun that Payne broke up with Smith before One Direction launched the "Where We Are" world tour because he felt that being on tour would not be healthy for their relationship: “Liam said she is the sweetest girl he’s ever met and he’s really sad about the split. But he knows it was the right thing to do. He wants her to enjoy university and not be sad waiting for him to come back from tour for the odd day here and there.

"So, Liam made the painful decision to end it. It has been really hard for him, all alone on the other side of the world, so soon after going through a breakup. But the huge crowds of fans flocking to their gigs every night have given him everything he needs to keep going."
