Harry Styles Granted Protection Against Pesky Paparazzi

He can rest a little easier today because Harry Styles learned that he won a court order against a paparazzo that harassed him.

The One Direction singer applied for protection against a pushy photographer after attempting to solve the matter peacefully.

When his attempts failed, Styles went to the British High Court and received an injunction that unidentified paparazzi members are not allowed to chase Harry by car or motorcycle, put him under surveillance, loiter within 50 meters of his home or take pictures under those restrictions.

Per Harry’s lawyer, “This is not a privacy injunction. Mr. Styles is not trying to prevent fans approaching him in the street and taking photos. He remains happy to do that, as he always has. Rather, it is the method or tactics which have been used by a certain type of photographer.”
