It seemed to Louis Tomlinson fans that in early 2016, he would be firmly planted in Los Angeles to take care of his newborn son. However, the relationship between Louis Tomlinson and the child’s mother has appeared to sour… and this can possibly lead to the idea that he will pull up stakes to move back to England.
So far, the only thing that seems to be keeping Louis Tomlinson in Los Angeles is his son. Sadly, TMZ stated that, a month after the child was born, Louis Tomlinson may not have custody of his son and may no longer be amicably welcomed by his child’s mother, Briana Jungwirth.
Unlike other members of One Direction, Louis Tomlinson has not given any details about solo projects he might be involved with that would actually anchor him in Los Angeles.
On top of this, Simon Cowell “confirms” Louis Tomlinson’s plans for 2016, according to The Spec, but the specifics about Louis were not revealed. There was only a promise that something would be revealed by One Direction over the next few months, but not Louis Tomlinson specifically.
On the other hand, Simon Cowell may not have wanted to re-state the obvious — which is the possibility that Louis Tomlinson is highly likely to return to London to be a judge on X Factor.
In the end, will the thing that might bring Louis Tomlinson back to London be business? It has been teased for months, but it appears that there may be final decisions being made about Louis Tomlinson becoming an X Factor judge in London.
Metro wrote that Louis Tomlinson’s response to getting a spot as an X Factor judge is, “It’s really exciting. We’ve had no official conversation yet. But yeah, I mean, why wouldn’t I?”
UnReality TV recently reported that insiders have been insinuating that the decision is close to being final regarding Louis Tomlinson joining X Factor, and they reportedly stated: “But, if he does join the panel, what will that mean for Danielle, and his new son, Freddie?”
As previously reported by the Inquisitr, the signs have been building over the month of February and in early March that Louis Tomlinson moving to London may be the right decision in the near future. This could especially be true if Louis Tomlinson does eventually get custody of his son and needs his family support to help raise the infant.
After all, Billboard reported that when Louis Tomlinson was interviewed at the BRIT Awards about being a new dad, he said it was “intense.”
Alternatively, there are a couple of signs that he is having a good time in Los Angeles for the time being.
In particular, Louis Tomlinson and Danielle Campbell have been having a lot of fun. Louis Tomlinson has also had a chance to catch up with every member of One Direction in Los Angeles since Freddie was born.
On the other hand, family is extremely important to many members of One Direction, and Louis Tomlinson could need his family for emotional support since things with him and Briana Jungwirth are less than ideal.
For example, UnReality TV reported on March 3 that there was a previously unreleased video from Mexico where Harry Styles from One Direction spoke for Louis Tomlinson and the rest of the band when he stated the following.
“I think we have been very lucky with the team we have had around us and friends and family and each other. I think it’s cool that we travel in a large family of touring people and there is always people to keep you in check.”
This need to have family in his life may explain why Louis Tomlinson has been seen in Hollywood with his sister, Lottie Tomlinson, according to X17 Online.
Unfortunately, what hangs in the balance with the Los Angeles permanent residency decision is that the situation with Louis Tomlinson’s baby’s mother is not limited to a financial arrangement disagreement… and Louis could feel like he is being pushed toward London because Briana is unreasonable.
For instance, the Daily Mail claims that insiders say Briana Jungwirth does not want Louis Tomlinson to see Danielle Campbell as part of the custody arrangement. TMZ clarifies this on March 2, and stated the following.
“Briana is concerned about another woman interacting with her child and interfering with the ‘critical bonding period’ between mother and son.”
In addition, there are some things that could draw Louis Tomlinson to London permanently — and it involves friends. Although the Daily Mail reported that Louis Tomlinson’s ex is hanging out with Liam Payne’s ex, he mainly spends his time partying in London with Zayn Malik’s ex, Perrie Edwards.
Finally, if there is one more reason to move back to the U.K. from Los Angeles, it might be due to the fact that Louis Tomlinson has family that are going through a tender emotional time. Soon after Louis Tomlinson appeared on the BRIT Awards, his grandfather, Keith, died, according to Gossip Cop.
