AceShowbiz - Louis Tomlinson has vowed never to return to the BBC's Breakfast news show after facing "gossipy" questions about losing his mother.
The singer was expecting Monday's (February 03) chat with hosts Dan Walker and Louise Minchin to be about his debut solo album, "Walls", but he also faced a grilling over his relationship with his old bandmates, and his grief over the death of his mother, Johannah, from leukemia in 2016.
Tweeting fans about his displeasure after the interview, he wrote: "Defo wont be going on there again Haha! Love to all my fans for always having my back."
Dan then responded to the tweet asking the singer what it was he took exception to, and Louis, who also lost his sister Felicite, last year (2019), replied: "I'm lucky enough to have a creative outlet for me to talk about grief this doesn't however give you the right to talk about it for gossip purposes."
The presenter wrote back: "Hi Louis. We were asking you about the song on your new album about your mum. We know it's painful which is why we didn't dwell on it. No intention to upset you or be 'gossipy' about it at all."
The 28-year-old popstar then added: "I was upset that you continued to ask me about my grief. It goes without saying how hard it is to lose both people so close to me. The least I ask is that you respect my decision of not wanting to be asked in interviews about something so painfull (sic)."
The offending moment in the interview seemed to come when Dan and Louise asked a series of questions about "Two of Us", his new track about his mum. A frustrated Louis tried to move the conversation on by saying he was "professional" when singing the song.
He also accused the presenters of "proper going in" when asked about a "spat" with former bandmate Zayn Malik.
Later in the interview, he also mocked Dan for asking about a One Direction reunion, saying, "You've ticked them all off now, you've gone trauma, Zayn, now this one," before saying a reunion is "inevitable" at some stage.
