One Direction star's dad fears son is headed in the "wrong direction"
Louis Tomlinson's father has spoken up after a recent video surfaced of his son and band mate Zayn Malik smoking marijuana in an SUV in Peru.
The younger Tomlinson, 22, had said in the five-minute video: “So here we are, leaving Peru. Joint lit. Happy days.”
But it was his estranged father who wasn't having such a 'happy day' when he watched the video which led him to come out and express the fear for his son.
Troy Austin, 45, told The Daily Mirror in a video: “It seems the fame and money have changed him.
“He’s a different person to that person three years ago. Where are his management? As far as I know they have the best management that money can buy and those people should be protecting them from things like this.”

Troy, 45, then recalled one of the last conversations he had with the superstar, where Louis vowed never to have tattoos or smoke before he hit the big time.
He said: “He said he would never get a tattoo because it was a scar and he would never smoke because it would damage his vocal cords.
“He’s gone the opposite way and I hope it doesn’t get worse.”
