Girlfriend of 1D’s Louis Tomlinson Attacked At Airport
Eleanor Calder, the newly reunited girlfriend of One Direction singer Louis Tomlinson, was viciously attacked upon arriving at LAX airport by a gang of girls while he confronted a harassing paparazzo. You can watch the video unfold below, showing first how a rude photographer blocked the path of and practically attacked Eleanor as she quietly tried to use the bathroom.
You can see Eleanor’s head covered with a hood and face down so as not to attract attention, but she is dogged by this man nonetheless. Louis rushed to move the paparazzi so Eleanor could pass unmolested, and as she walked to safety she was accosted off camera by a mob of girls who began hitting and attacking her, forcing her into a corner in a savage assault.
Finally, as Louis realizes his girlfriend is being attacked and not one bystander is helping, though many are filming on their phones and enjoying the fight as if it were a show instead of a violent beating on an innocent young woman. Louis tries to rush to save Eleanor, but is tripped by the paparazzo who sees the fight too and is greedily rushing to get footage of it, no longer caring about trying to harass Louis.
At last, Louis gains his footing, grabs one of the attackers around the waist and has to literally pull her swinging off of his girlfriend. Eleanor is able to run to safety, as finally airport security arrives and holds back the other girls attacking her.
Legal representatives for Louis Tomlinson gave the version of events that appears on the film: “The paparazzi provoked and caused the altercation that occurred with Louis at the airport this morning.” They made sure to point out, “This is not the first or last time that a paparazzi has created an altercation with a celebrity.”
“While the altercation was going on with the paparazzi, three other individuals were attacking his girlfriend during this incident and he came to her defense, causing airport security to intervene.” No word yet on whether Eleanor will be filing charges against her psychotic attackers, a horrifying example of fans driven to near insanity by their delusional obsession into boy bands like One Direction and their singers.
Both Louis and the paparazzo photographer were arrested, however Louis was released a short while later. The gang of girls who attacked Eleanor, however, not only were released without repercussion but took to social media to falsely garner sympathy for their supposed injuries. The only possibility of injury came when Louis rescued Eleanor, who was covering her face and body backed into a corner by a mob fronted by three girls scratching, hitting, pulling, and punching her.
Social media has exploded in favor of Louis and Eleanor, with fans of 1D taking on a rabid hunt for the girls who attacked the couple and then tried to play the victim. In one tabloid interview, the girls can be heard laughing over the incident, glibly stating how they intend to sue the singer and preserve their 15 minutes of fame. In fact, such violent aggressors belong in jail, as this type of behavior can be an indicator of later criminal or psychopathic activity.
The incident comes just as the world has learned that Louis and Eleanor rekindled their romantic relationship following the tragic death of his mother, Johannah Poulston, aged just 43, in December last year. Eleanor had been Louis’ girlfriend for four years before they ended their relationship in 2015.
Not long after Eleanor Calder and Louis broke up, he and American stylist friend Briana Jungworth announced they were having a baby together- but not romantically dating. Louis then began a relationship with actress Danielle Campbell who he has only recently separated from.
Louis and Eleanor made their relationship official again last week when they re-followed each other on Instagram. The young rekindled couple then went on to enjoy a vacation in Jamaica together, a trip first revealed by Louis’ younger sister Phoebe. A fan on Instagram also confirmed that she had bumped into Tomlinson with his “girlfriend” during the break, causing One Direction fans a tizzy of excitement.
