Louis Tomlinson was arrested in Los Angeles after an "altercation" with paparazzi.
The 25-year-old singer and his girlfriend, Eleanor Calder, arrived at an airport when the star was "provoked" by photographers, Newsbeat reports. Calder began arguing with onlookers who started filming the fight.
The couple was traveling back to Los Angeles after their vacation in Las Vegas.
Tomlinson's lawyer released a statement regarding the altercation.
"The paparazzi provoked and caused the altercation that occurred with Louis at the airport this morning," said lawyer Martin Singer. "This is not the first or last time that a paparazzo 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."
Here is the reason Louis got arrested. Not because "he beat up an paparazzi or he punched a girl like stupid media said before." First paparazzi were so fucking agressive and he tried to make them stop taking pictures and then he fucking fell, he didnt punch him at all . . what a fuck?! and then even the worse thing happened, Louis saw some girls beating Eleanor up and he jumped in to protect her. They fucking had her pinned against the wall and punching her. She didnt even defend herself.. This is disgusting. I hope both of them are okay now. I still don't get why Louis got arrested it should've been those girls who were beating his girlfriend Eleanor. This is vile 🙁 • #louistomlinson #eleanorcalder #onedirecion #liampayne #harrystyles #niallhoran #zaynmalik #lax #airport
