Despite earlier reports that One Direction's first parent, Louis Tomlinson, would be springing for a lavish $10 million mansion for Briana Jungwirth and their newborn son, the British pop star has apparently settled on a "modest" three-bedroom house — as in it cost less than a million — in Calabasas, California, a celebrity-friendly enclave north of Los Angeles, according to TMZ. And apparently it's up to her to cover the cost of furnishing the home. That's cold.
Tomlinson himself is said to be renting a much, much nicer place to stay in L.A. proper so he can be closer to his son — but not super-close, apparently. Oh, and then there's the child support, which the exes are reportedly in the process of working out, with Jungwirth reportedly looking for $600,000 a year, according to TMZ's sources. She did hear that the band just split up, right? Maybe rein in the expectations a little?
