Up All Night is a song by his hit band, and now One Direction’s Louis Tomlinson’s latest baby drama is indeed causing him some sleepless nights! The once seemingly cordial relationship between 24-year-olds Louis and Briana Jungwirth, his one-time fling and mother of his son Freddie who was born in January, has become increasingly strained, causing Louis to file a court case seeking joint legal and physical custody of the little boy.
Louis’ Not Snap-happy
The singer wants to protect his five-month-old son’s privacy and give him “a normal, private and protected childhood” and is said to want to be consulted before Briana posts pictures of Freddie on her social media accounts. The stylist regularly shares photos of her first child on Instagram, recently uploading a shot of her lying down next to cute little Freddie as he sucks on a dummy.
Sources close to the British star claim that Briana has been ‘inconsistent’ when it comes to allowing Louis access to Freddie, causing the 1D star to get the courts involved. She is said to be keeping Freddie away from Louis because she doesn't want the tot around his current girlfriend, 21-year-old actress Danielle Campbell. Describing the new parent’s now strained relationship, a source says, “It has hit rock bottom. He is not welcome at Briana’s or her family’s homes anymore.”
Relations between Louis and Briana began to deteriorate when the singer started dating Danielle only weeks before Briana gave birth in January and Louis, who is reportedly renting a US$1 million house for Briana and their son in Calabasas, California and rumoured to be paying around US$15,000 a month in child support, was recently turned away when he went to pick up Freddie with his new love interest.
A Woman Scorned?
Briana has allegedly complained to Louis of Freddie “smelling like perfume”, suggesting that the little boy has spent time around The Originals star Danielle. It’s reported that she also has concerns over the security of herself and her child and believes that Danielle is “nothing more than a crazed One Direction fan who now knows her home address and gate security code”. Meanwhile, Louis is said to believe his ex’s complaints are stemming from jealousy. Yikes!
