Louis Tomlinson, Harry Styles, Liam Payne, Niall Horan and Zayn Malik are the four guys that make up the UK boyband One Direction and they all have the same management as Rebecca Ferguson, who also became famous through the British talent show X-Factor. Although One Direction and Rebecca Ferguson share the same management, it sounds like their experiences with this management have been vastly different.
Rebecca Ferguson is filing a lawsuit against their management after passing out and being forced to return to work minutes later. Rebecca blames her collapse on being overworked at the hands of her management team.
Ferguson sent out a series of tweets and threatened to take her management to court.
Louis Tomlinson, after seeing Rebecca's tweets, sent this message to Ferguson, which has since been deleted: "@RebeccaFMusic Success is impossible with out proper hard work"
Rebecca's reply, also now deleted, said, "I forgive u I used to be scared and think I had to do whatever they told me to do too. Xxx hope your good :)"
Commenters on the Daily Mail article referenced seem to think that, since Louis Tomlinson doesn't walk in her shoes (no kids, can share the burden with four other guys) that he should mind his own business. The subject is a touchy one, to say the least. It is obvious that Rebecca Ferguson has had a very different experience with management than Louis and the other guys have. Either that, or she is right and Louis and the guys simply don't stand up for themselves. Perhaps they've never felt the way she does, though.
Louis Tomlinson also sent out a few tweets to his followers, which, after reading about his interaction with Rebecca, seem to have been a kneejerk response to her complaints. Louis tweeted, "We're in the position that others dream of. We love you guys. You put us here! Don't think its forgotten" along with one other tweet on the subject of success, which you can read about here.
Do you think Louis was right to interject his opinion, or should he have minded his own business? How about RebeccaÂ—should she have vented in such a public outburst?
