One of the girls involved has come forward to tell her story
It’s been a week since One Direction star, Louis Tomlinson was caught up in a shocking airport brawl, and now one of the girls involved has come forward to give her side of the story.
Louis was travelling to LAX with his girlfriend, Eleanor Calder when the altercation took place and in a video posted by Radar Online the X Factor star can be seen struggling with a photographer.
Although the footage is unclear it then seems to show the 25-year-old rushing over to help his girlfriend after she gets caught up with two female fans and the whole thing ends in a messy fight.
But now after being tracked down by One Direction fans, one of the girls involved has described the tussle in her own words, claiming that Louis’ girlfriend actually approached her and her wife.
Talking to TMZ, Ana Becerra said: ‘We were just waiting for a ride and we saw people taking pictures.
‘I got the phone when she rushed and just grabbed me, she was fighting for my phone so I wasn’t going to let her get my phone.’
The alleged victim then declared dad-of-one, Louis hit her in the face which led to her suffering from concussion, adding: ‘I saw the guy from One Direction, he just punched me in my face and that’s when everyone started getting all scandal.
‘When he punched me, I actually wear glasses so he punched me and he broke my glasses.’
Ana also revealed that she has decided to press charges against the singer, who’s been granted bail of £16,000, explaining: ‘I don’t think it’s right for a guy to hit a woman at all. And for the fact that I never did anything to him.’
And after being flooded with aggressive messages from the 1D fandom, the 22-year-old has also shared images of the injuries she claims she sustained – which show small scratches behind her ear and above her left eye and forehead.
Louis was arrested and charged with simple battery but despite the shocking incident, a source has told The Mirror that the pop star was just being protective, revealing: ‘The video from the incident shows what really happened and tells the story.
‘Louis rushed in and pushed them away. He is adamant everything he did was to protect his girlfriend and that is what he has been telling his friends.
‘He can’t say anything public because of the legal situation but he just wants to sort it out as soon as possible and move on.’
Louis’ lawyer Martin Singer has also defended the star, releasing a statement which read: ‘The paparazzi provoked and caused the altercation that occurred with Louis at the airport this morning. 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 defence.’
