Louis Tomlinson reportedly has the support of Simon Cowell following his airport drama in which police were involved.

The One Direction hunk and his girlfriend Eleanor Calder were involved in a brawl at Los Angeles International Airport which saw Louis arrested for attacking a photographer while two female fans got into a physical altercation with Eleanor. One of those fans, Ana Becerra, is also pressing charges against the star too.

“Simon was the first to speak to Louis after the arrest and told him he’d do whatever it took to ensure his career – and reputation as a whole – remained unscathed,” an insider told Britain’s Closer magazine.

“Simon sees Louis as a second son and the pair is incredibly close. Simon’s told him he’ll have the best PR team behind him and has even offered to attend meetings with lawyers to ensure he has the best representation money can buy.”

It is believed that Louis isn’t just worried about his reputation either and is worried about how the incident might affect his 13-month-old son Freddie, who he has with ex-flame Briana Jungwirth.

“First and foremost, Louis wants to ensure that this doesn’t affect Freddie, who remains his priority,” the source added. “He loves being a dad more than anything and doesn’t want to upset the balance with Briana.”
