Louis Tomlinson speaks out about his arrest for the first time


When we reported that Louis Tomlinson had been arrested in LAX airport for battery, we went through a range of emotions. We knew that Louis would not have simply assaulted someone because that’s just not the kind of person he is. So when we saw headlines sensationalising the story and heard the reports from the girl he “attacked” saying that he should go to jail it made our blood BOIL!

“Yeah I’m going to press charges… The guy just grabbed me and threw me to the floor and he socked me and that’s it… He’s going to go to jail”. (Source: The Sun)

Who the hell does she think she is? Obviously, she was a Directioner because why would she be so bothered about stalking Louis and Eleanor at the airport if she wasn’t. So it really makes it 1000 times worse when it’s one of our own who has betrayed Louis.

If anyone should go to jail it should be her and the band of screeching cronies who clearly had Louis’ girlfriend backed into a corner and we’re visibly intimidating and attacking her. Louis simply rushed over to defend his girlfriend by dragging the girls off her. He didn’t throw a punch. He didn’t “sock’ her. He just tried to break up the fight, as well as calling for help.

BREAKING: Louis Tomlinson has been arrested in LA

QUIZ: What % Louis Tomlinson are you? 

We’re glad we’re not the only ones who think so as well. #WeSupportLouis was trending for three days in a row following Louis’ arrest.

Now Louis has spoken out about the incident. A source close to Louis made the following statement to the Hollywood Life:

“Louis insists he didn’t attack the photographer — the guy just fell over in the crazy scrum that enveloped him and Eleanor. Louis was just trying to protect his girlfriend since the situation was potentially really dangerous and could have gotten out of control. He would have done anything to keep Eleanor safe, and is confident he won’t be found guilty.”

We’re not going to show the video of the assault here because we 100% agree with @LouisWTNews that it should not be shared out of respect. But it does show exactly what is said in the statement – that Louis was just trying to defend his girlfriend from people who attacked them.

Stars have spoken out to defend the singer on Twitter, including Louis’ collaborator, Steve Aoki:

Until we can bring you more concrete information all we can do is send positivity thoughts Louis and Eleanor’s way and hope that they manage to find some peace amidst all this chaos. Maximum Pop! supports Louis.
