The video is a little chaotic, but you can see Louis with the paparazzi and the one man fall to the ground. Reportedly, Louis tried to knock the one photog to the ground by his legs and that was when the man hit his head on the ground. In the video, the paparazzo seems to be very close to Louis’s girlfriend and Louis tries to get him to move away. Louis even tries to block the man before going out of frame, which is when the photog falls to the ground. “What is happening here? Can we have some help?” Louis yells as he runs over to his girlfriend who is now surrounded by people. An airport employee appears to break up the whole thing.
“The paparazzi provoked and caused the altercation that occurred with Louis. It’s not the first 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,” Louis’s team said to TMZ.
Louis’s girlfriend remained unnamed in all of this, but it is assumed to be Eleanor Calder. The two were together for a while before they broke up in 2015 and recently reunited. Since then, Louis has become a father to 1 year-old Freddie with Briana Jungwirth. He dated actress Danielle Campbell, but they split following the loss of Louis’s mother Johannah Poulston to leukemia.
