Is Louis Tomlinson in Monaco with Justin Bieber looking at racecars because he wants to find a way to finally outrun his fans? Sadly, like Justin Bieber fans, One Direction fans have been slowly ruining several aspects of Louis Tomlinson’s life — and even his charity work could be affected.
Justin Bieber recently upset his fans when he decided he was not interested in taking selfies and said he feels like a caged “zoo animal,” according to Peta Pixel. About Justin Bieber’s negative experiences with fans, he is quoted stated the following.
“It has gotten to the point that people won’t even say hi to me or recognize me as a human… I wanna be able to keep my sanity… I don’t owe anybody a picture.”
Like Justin Bieber, Louis Tomlinson fans are well aware that there has been an ongoing problem with One Direction fans harassing the band while they were touring. The situation got so bad in 2015 when One Direction was touring America that Liam Payne and Niall Horan scolded “fans” on social media, as previously reported by the Inquisitr.
When Louis Tomlinson went on break from One Direction, he may have been looking for a quiet life, but the bad manners from 1D fans continued. In fact, the mother of his child, Briana Jungwirth, has had multiple death threats and other security disasters all because she knows Louis Tomlinson.
Although Briana Jungwirth has been diligent and told the press she would “try to enjoy motherhood,” being a known associate of Louis Tomlinson is dangerous because of overzealous One Direction fans, according to TV3.
Around Mother’s Day on May 8, Briana complained on social media that fans make it hard to share about Louis Tomlinson’s son because of the harassment and stated the following.
“I am beyond disgusted by it all. Being a new mom, I wanted to feel the joy and excitement and be able to share such a beautiful time of my life.”
About two weeks later, Louis Tomlinson had to defend his son against a fan that called Louis and said “I hope your baby dies,” according to the BBC.
Unfortunately, when Louis Tomlinson travels, there is also the problem with ill-mannered fans swarming him in addition to the unruly paparazzi. For example, before Louis Tomlinson arrived in Monaco on May 28, he was in France for the wedding of Leicester City star Jamie Vardy and the paparazzi swarmed his car, according to UnReality TV.
According to reports, Louis Tomlinson and his girlfriend Danielle Campbell were in a chauffeur-driven car, and the paparazzi was so irritating that “the only images of the singer on the day showed him glowering.”
To make matters worse, every aspect of Louis Tomlinson’s life seems to be under threat — and it was highlighted in the media that even his upcoming charity soccer match could result in people associated with the event having One Direction fans telling them that might try to hurt them.
In April, Louis Tomlinson and Niall Horan announced that they would be participating in a Unicef charity soccer/football match called Soccer Aid on June 5, according to Manchester United.
However, will Louis Tomlinson’s opponents for the charity event feel afraid of getting death threats from One Direction fans because they interact with Louis Tomlinson?
Newsweek pointed out on May 11 that Louis Tomlinson has been in charity football games in the past, and they did not turn out too well because of One Direction fans. For example, in 2013, Louis Tomlinson was tackled by Gabriel Agbonlahor and because of that, Agbonlahor “later received death threats from irate ‘Directioners,’ as fans of the band are known.”
In another recent example of One Direction fans behaving badly, mayhem ensued when Louis Tomlinson tweeted about a football/soccer match. The fan did not seem to understand what Louis Tomlinson had tweeted and this confusion resulted in his One Direction fans getting into a beef on social media with football fans, according to a May 9 report from Doncaster Press.
Obviously, Louis Tomlinson has been relentlessly hit with negativity from bad fans, but will he end up going in the direction of Justin Bieber, cutting fans out of his life in order to protect his sanity?
For now, there are no official statements from Louis Tomlinson expressing his desire to avoid fans at all costs, but it might be nice if fans gave Louis Tomlinson the ultimate gift of privacy so he can avoid spending so much money on security.
According to a 2013 report from the Hollywood Reporter, the average cost of hiring security guards to keep celebrities safe is “between $500 and $1,000 an officer a day for a coordinated team of bodyguards… to steer a star from house to set to dinner.”
Keep in mind that these expenses for Louis Tomlinson are likely much higher, as he is also paying for the security detail for Briana Jungwirth and his newborn son, according to Daily Mail.
