Public scrutiny have made her feel “like less of a person”
Briana Jungwirth has an 11-month-old baby with One Direction’s Louis Tomlinson, but it hasn’t been easy for the 23-year-old stylist. It’s been reported that fans of the artist have slammed and scrutinized her personal life since having the child, with many even claiming the tot “isn’t real.”
Now a source has revealed that the constant judgment have left her feeling “less of a person.”
Her friend, Luke Poole, shared: “Of course Briana loves Freddie but it’s definitely been a nightmare at times. It’s tough – she’s taken a lot of thing personally. She’s not just a normal mum – she’s the mum of a superstar…
When people said the baby was fake, that made Briana feel like less of a person. She’s trying to focus on being a mum, she’s got a lot of pressure on her.
On top her having had a kid and that being a huge life-changing moment, she also has to worry about people talking about her.”
And Luke acknowledged that things are difficult due to Louis’ lack of time as an artist, often needing to be “all over the place.”
He told Heat magazine: “It’s just Louis can’t be there so it’s tough for Briana.
I think they’re still trying to be kids and young adult – they want to have fun and hang out with their friends… he’s all over the place. For her, she has to sacrifice a lot to take care of the kid. I would say that having a kid at a young age is tough.”
Briana had recently asked for privacy and respect while slamming her online critics, adding: “To all those who feel the need to make disparaging, hateful and inappropriate comments concerning me and my son Freddie…
I am sincerely sorry that you all have chosen to focus your time and attention on my life and the life of my son. Surely you must have better things to do than pry into the personal life of a single mom and newborn child.
I am a proud new mother that is extremely joyous about my child being in this world and have shared that joy with my friends and family on a daily basis – often times through social media.”
