Over the past few days, we have seen pictures of Louis Tomlinson that suggest that all is not well with the One Direction star. Over the new-year period, Louis has looked pale and drawn. Tomlinson has lost a lot of weight quickly, his cheeks look hollow, and his eyes are sunken. Tomlinson has spent time partying in London with friends and with rumored new girlfriend Danielle Campbell. Since One Direction finished the promotional tour for their fifth album, fans have become increasingly worried that Tomlinson is struggling with his health.
Over the past few days, it has even been suggested that Tomlinson has scars on his arm that suggest he may have been cutting himself. As reported in the Inquisitr, Tomlinson looks far from happy.
The reasons for Louis’ sickly appearance but as previously reported in the Inquisitr. Tomlinson has been subject to a lot of negative, unsubstantiated, and on occasion downright misleading headlines. As an example, the Mirror recently reported that Louis had been “kicked out” of a London comedy club. The truth seems to have been that one of Louis’ friends was rude to the club manager and was asked to leave. Louis followed his friend out of the club and stopped to have photographs taken with fans on the way out. Few people would agree that this constitutes Louis being “kicked out.”
Whilst the style of reporting has varied, the majority of the stories seem to have a common thread and they all link back, directly or indirectly, to Briana Jungwirth and claims that she is carrying Tomlinson’s baby.
Back in July, the Sun broke the story that Jungwirth was pregnant as a result of a “brief” relationship with Tomlinson. Before the story broke, we saw a rush of photographs of Louis leaving clubs in Los Angeles with a group of people that included Briana and her cousin, Ashley. Since Louis’ impending fatherhood was announced, Briana has largely disappeared off the face of the earth.
A handful of photographs have emerged of Briana, including some where it was claimed that she had travelled to London to support Louis at One Direction’s London concerts. Briana was photographed with members of Louis’ family, but she has not been seen with Tomlinson himself.
In November, it was widely reported, including in the Mirror, that Louis had declared in no uncertain terms that he was single. Just days later, the same sources were linking Tomlinson with Danielle Campbell. In the beginning, the reporting of that rumored relationship was reasonably positive, but after just a few days, Tomlinson was being described as a “love rat” and deadbeat dad who had abandoned his pregnant girlfriend just weeks before she was due to give birth.
On the run-up to new-year numerous outlets, including OK! Magazine, reported that Briana was struggling with the fact that she had been abandoned by Tomlinson. The sole indication that this was the case seems to come from claims that Briana shared a video by a Vlogger Jacqlyn Hill.
According to the Sun, Hill shared an emotional video in which she intimated that she had problems dealing with some of the negative people on social media.
“I feel like a lot of people forget that I have blood in my veins. I cry when I’m sad. I bleed when I get cut, and I’m a real person.”
The Sun claimed that Briana shared the post and said that she “identified’ with many of the things that Hill had said. Of course, there is no confirmation of this because Jungwirth’s Instagram account is private. Nonetheless, it was claimed that Briana was hitting out at Tomlinson for dating whilst she was at home close to giving birth.
Briana Jungwirth Sunshine where is your baby bump?? pic.twitter.com/XP6cTfmWLy— MRS HORAN&TOMLINSON (@Wiktoria_1402) December 26, 2015
The strange thing is that, apart from a few words on Good Morning America back in August, Louis has never discussed Briana or baby Tomlinson. In fact, it has been widely reported that baby talk is off limits for interviewers and journalists. Many of Louis’ fans do not believe that Briana is pregnant, because pictures of her have emerged that appear to show a baby bump in some photos, but not in others.
The picture above purports to show Briana with her family at Christmas, and in it she does not look pregnant. The one below is supposed to be from her Instagram account and shows a huge, though oddly shaped, bump.
With all of the speculation around baby Tomlinson and whether or not Briana is actually carrying his child, it is hardly surprising that Louis is feeling under pressure. When you factor in the negative way Louis is being portrayed by some sections of the media and the exhaustion that comes with having just completed a massive tour, it is no wonder that Tomlinson is not at the peak of health.
Tomlinson’s fans will be hoping that Louis can now put his feet up, relax and recover. Both Louis and his fans will be grateful to see the end of the “babygate” saga, whatever the truth of the matter may be.
