After being arrested for getting into a fight with paparazzi at Los Angeles International Airport Friday night, Louis Tomlinson and his team are in damage control mode. According to RadarOnline.com, the former One Direction singer is gearing up for battle and has hired top Hollywood lawyer Marty Singer to take on his case. Marty claims the fight was provoked by paparazzi, but Radar exclusively obtained a video that tells a different story!
In the exclusive footage, Louis can be seen lunging at the photographer Karl Larssen and bringing him to the ground. “Louis lifted my leg and then he hit me and I hit my own head,” Karl said. “I was so disoriented and I heard everyone screaming.”
In an instant, Louis leapt up and rushed to his girlfriend Eleanor Calder’s side, who appeared to have gotten into a scuffle with another bystander.
“She pulled my phone, we started fighting,” Eleanor’s 22-year-old alleged victim, who said she plans to press charges, told The Sun. “The guy just grabbed me and threw me to the floor and socked me and that’s it,” she claimed.
When police arrived to the scene, the fan appeared to have a cut above her eye and was shaken, an eyewitness told Radar.
Louis was released from jail at 1:45 a.m. Saturday morning after paying a $20,000 bail.
Radar spotted a team of multiple lawyers and a doctor visiting Louis’ home on Monday. His court date is set for March 29.
