One Direction singer and popstar, Louis Tomlinson, may have recently broke the news after revealing that he will soon be a father, but it turns out the 23-year-old “Night Changes” hit maker is also facing family issues with his estranged father. Tomlinson’s estranged father has reportedly threatened to drive a stake into the family unless the singer takes him back into his life. Read on for more more details.
Louis Tomlinson, 23, is set to welcome his first child with Briana Jungwirth. Seizing this opportunity to build some bridges, the singer’s estranged father, Troy Austin, 46, has reached out to him. What seems to be a moving family reunion between the two immediately became a feud after the “What Makes You Beautiful” singer’s father threatened to drop a “bombshell” on the new family unless the singer lets him back in his life. The two have not spoken for three years and their last conversation was that of an angry phone call.
An unnamed source spoke with Britain’s Sunday People last week claiming, “Troy has always wanted to repair that relationship – but if Louis isn’t prepared to do so, he’s told a few friends he has something which would really throw a grenade into things. He knows it could cause another big rift within the family but is starting to feel he has nothing left to lose.”
This news comes in the wake of Tomlinson’s announcement of his fatherhood earlier this month. According to most sources, Austin’s actions are motivated by his desire to be a part of his grandchild’s life. The One Direction star has been estranged with his father since his parents’ divorce in 1996. He adopted the name of his step-father, Mark Tomlinson.
Tomlinson had a much publicized breakup with long-term girlfriend Eleanor Calder in March this year, followed by the announcement of pregnancy with Jungwirth in July. The two are not dating, although Tomlinson reportedly wanted to rekindle their romance.
