She went from virtual anonymity to being the overnight – or, post-labour – (in)famous mother of 1D Louis Tomlinson’s baby. Despite Briana Jungwirth doing nothing more than having a child to bring on her infamy, it has still brought out the online trolls in droves. And, she’s had enough.
According to Cosmopolitan, cyber-bullying focused at the new mum to little Freddie has gone so far, she is seeking legal action to stop it.
“It has been an onslaught,” a family told Daily Mail. “The fans are attacking and breaking in to our social media profiles, trying to get our passwords, [and] calling our homes at all hours of the night.”
The announcement of Freddie’s birth allegedly came after Jungwirth’s grandmother was harassed on social media.

“We have tried to ignore much of it,” said the family member. “But recently some fans have crossed the line and we have instructed attorneys to get involved.
“When somebody starts getting belligerent then that’s when the attorneys get involved.”
We hope this is all sorted out soon for the new little family!
