Louis Tomlinson ‘arrested after attacking paparazzi’

The One Direction singer has been forced to pay out $20,000

Louis Tomlinson has reportedly been arrested and ordered to pay a $20,000 bail after fighting with paparazzi.

The 25-year-old singer was said to have engaged in a showdown with a group of photographers when he arrived at Los Angeles International Airport with his girlfriend Eleanor Calder.

The alleged brawl was said to have taken place after Louis told the paps to stop taking photos of the couple, but they refused.

The fight apparently ended when airport security stepped in.

The former 1D star was left ‘upset’ after the brawl.

“Louis was really upset. After being filmed he told the snapper to stop, but he didn’t take kindly to the request,” a source told TMZ.

The insider also said that one photographer smashed his head against the floor.

They added: “The row turned into a scuffle causing airport security to pull them apart.”

Tomlinson’s lawyer Martin Singer released a statement to the MailOnline on Saturday: “The paparazzi provoked and caused the altercation that occurred with Louis.

“It’s not the first time that a paparazzi has created an altercation with a celebrity.

“While the altercation was going on with the paparazzi, three other individuals were attacking his girlfriend during this incident and he came to her defence.”

It’s no wonder why Tomlinson was annoyed; he was protecting his girlfriend!

According to the singer’s sister, Louis and Eleanor rekindled their romance last week after dating for four years, before ending their relationship back in March 2015.
