Harry Styles is unarguably the most popular member of the most popular boy band in the world right now, so it makes sense that he’d be hounded by photographers wherever he goes. That can get more than a little intrusive, so Harry did what many have done before him: he went to court to get an order to keep the paparazzi from hounding him… and he won.
A judge at the High Court ruled that photogs can no longer follow Harry “voluntarily” (is there any other way?) but apparently this whole no harassment order doesn’t mean that fans can’t still talk to him.
Here’s how his lawyer David Sherborne put it:
“This is not a privacy order. 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.”
Fair enough. Sure, you sorta sign up for a certain amount of bullshit when you get famous, but there also need to be limits. It’s just a shame those limits aren’t borne from like, human decency and have to be dictated in court.
