ONE DIRECTION star LOUIS TOMLINSON has lashed out over his estranged father's interview with a British tabloid, in which he begged his son to get back in touch.
Tomlinson's dad Troy Austin split from the singer's mother, Johanna, when Louis was just two years old.
Austin reached out to his 21-year-old son in the U.K.'s Sunday Mirror over the weekend (24Mar13), revealing how he had gone to see the star in concert and was desperate for a reconciliation.
He said, "I know people will think I'm only interested in being part of his life again because he's rich and famous. But it's not about that. I'm his dad. We're flesh and blood and nothing can change that. I'm so proud of him I could burst.
"Of course, I would love to see him again and have a proper relationship with him. What dad wouldn't? But it's up to him."
However, Tomlinson has apparently proved he isn't interested in meeting his dad after taking to his Twitter.com page to take aim at the newspaper behind the interview.
He writes, "I'd like to start off the day by saying a big f**k you to 'the mirror'. On a happier note huge love to all out fans, you keep us going!!"
