One Direction’s Harry Styles Wins Case Against Paparazzi
One Direction‘s Harry Styles loves being bombarded by fans everywhere he goes, but he’s had enough of the paparazzi pulling those stunts.
According to The Guardian, the singer asked England’s High Court to prevent photographers from following him around. A last resort, Styles previously asked the photographers to stop himself.
The order, named “Paparazzi AAA,” says photographers must stop pursuing Styles by car or motorcycle in the UK and cannot loiter within 50 meters of his home. While Styles wasn’t present in court today (December 16), his lawyer David Sherborne spoke at the hearing on his behalf.
“This is not a privacy injunction,” he said. “Mr. Styles is not trying to prevent fans approaching him in the street and taking photos. He remains happy to do that, as he always has. Rather, it is the method or tactics which have been used by a certain type of photographer.”
Sherbourne said four paparazzi are currently being identified in the court case.
