According to TMZ, the 25-year-old was with his girlfriend when the paparazzo got too close for comfort. So naturally, Tomlinson allegedly pulled the photog to the floor by his legs. You know, because that's just what ya do. The photographer then took it upon himself to make a citizen’s arrest which, again, what year is it exactly?
The singer’s team issued a statement to TMZ, saying that the paparazzi provoked the situation. “It’s not the first time that a paparazzi has created an altercation with a celebrity.” Duh.
Although Tomlinson is a celebrity, I really just see him for what he is: just another a wayward youth with ostensibly no job, who has been in jail.
It’s not a great look, is what I’m saying.
