Back in January, Louis Tomlinson welcomed his first son.
To the surprise of many, Tomlinson and baby mama Briana Jungwirth didn't have a custody or child support agreement in place at the time little Freddie entered the world.
That changed quickly, because Louis and Briana are not in fact superhumans who are capable of amicably co-parenting without a piece of paper in place.
Sources say the Tomlinson-Jungwirth custody battle briefly got ugly, but was quickly ironed out.
Louis agreed to pay Briana $15,000 per month in child support and grant her primary physical custody of Freddie.
Now, however, it seems the former couple may be headed back to court, as Briana is reportedly not holding up her end of the bargain.
According to TMZ, Louis believes Briana has been "inconsistent" with regard to letting him see his son on a regular basis.
He now wants joint physical custody and a "50/50" share of Freddie's time.
Yes, unlike an unfortunate number of dads in their early twenties, Louis is doing everything he can to be a bigger part of his son's life.
If millions of Directioners weren't already swooning for the lad, they certainly are now.
Tomlinson has already rented a $1 million house in Calabasas for Briana and Freddie so that he can visit or pick the boy up as often as possible.
But to hear his lawyers tell it, even with that arrangement, Jungwirth isn't making it easy enough for Louis to see his son.
We'd hate to see another ugly custody battle, but unfortunately, these situations usually only go in one direction.
See what we did there?
