In the wake of Louis Tomlinson's epic airport brawl, the former One Direction singer has hired a team of lawyers to help combat his upcoming drama. Get the details on the aftermath!
On Monday, RadarOnline.com spotted a doctor and a few lawyers arriving at Louis Tomlinson's Hollywood home.
The Beverly Hills legal eagle has claimed the incident was provoked by paparazzi. But the raucous tape of the incident — filmed by another bystander — shows a different story.
Tomlinson got into a scuffle after landing in the airport with a photographer and a fan. After the fight the singer was arrested and booked for battery against the pair.
Reps for Louis state he was trying to defend his girlfriend, Eleanor Calder, who reportedly was being harassed.
The pap member, Karl Larssen, said the angry pop star "lifted my leg and then he hit me and I hit my own head," adding, "I was so disoriented and I heard everyone screaming."
After flipping Larssen onto his back, Tomlinson ran over to Calder, who had also got into a physical match with a 22-year-old fan for filming her boyfriend.
"She pulled my phone, we started fighting," the young fan told The Sun on Sunday, revealing that she plans to press charges. "The guy just grabbed me and threw me to the floor and socked me and that's it."
An eyewitness told RadarOnline.com that the fan he struck was left with a cut above her eye and was shaken when police arrived at the scene to arrest Tomlinson. The hot-head singer's bail was set at $20,000 and was later released at 1:45 a.m. His court date will be March 29.
