Louis Tomlinson's biological dad, Troy Austin, was arrested earlier this week. He was placed in jail after police found him inebriated in his car, and he was released to a hospital after authorities worried that he would be a danger to himself.
Even though the One Direction singer's dad has been talking to publications about his son's baby news, Tommo is estranged from his father. But sources close to Troy insist that their tumultuous father-son relationship has nothing to do with his recent downward spiral.
A friend told The Sun that Troy is struggling from a lack of support in his life, but it has nothing to do with his child.
"It’s tragic. He’s lost all of his friends. They’ve all disowned him. This isn’t about Louis," their source said.
This is very sad. We hope Troy gets the treatment that he needs, because it sounds like he's going through a lot in his personal life.
