Louis Tomlinson Reportedly Files For Joint Custody Of Son Freddie Reign
Louis Tomlinson is taking steps to be in his son's life as much as possible. According to TMZ, Tomlinson has filed for joint custody of his 5-month-old son, Freddie Reign, whose mother, Briana Jungwirth, TMZ sources claim has been "inconsistent" in letting Freddie see his father. TMZ reports Tomlinson is seeking 50/50 joint physical and legal custody. Both People and E! News have also reported the joint custody request news, but nothing has officially been confirmed or denied by Jungwirth or Tomlinson. Bustle has reached out to Jungwirth and Tomlinson's representation for comment, but did not receive an immediate response.
In February, People reported about Jungwirth and Tomlinson's custody agreement. At that time, the two apparently had "an interim agreement in terms of access" when it came to their son, which was set to remain in effect for a few weeks. That type of custody reportedly didn't include overnight visits, but "several hours of visitation per week" were part of the "temporary" plan. People also reported in February that if Tomlinson and Jungwirth couldn't come to a long-term custody and child support agreement, then they would most likely head to court.
At the time of TMZ's joint custody report, the outlet also claimed that Tomlinson is currently paying Jungwirth an estimated $15,000 a month in child support, but a judge will now set "whatever amount is deemed appropriate." He is reportedly also renting a $1 million house for Jungwirth and Freddie in Calabasas, California.
If it's true that he filed for joint custody, it's no surprise that the 24-year-old singer wants to be part of Freddie's life. By just scrolling through his Instagram, Tomlinson's love for his son is beyond apparent.
