Louis Tomlinson has received violent death threats, warning the singer that he and his family will be skinned and turned into “bed sheets,” Gossip Cop has learned. We’re told the LAPD is now investigating a series of threatening text messages sent to Tomlinson.

The One Direction star began receiving vicious text messages and pornographic images through WhatsApp. While the texts came from three separate numbers, it’s believed the same person is behind the menacing messages that include violent and disturbing threats aimed towards Tomlinson and his family. One message reads, “Louis I’ll skin your whole family including you and turn y’all into bedsheets, pillow cases, and a queen size blanket.”

Understandably shaken by the series of horrific texts, Tomlinson told the cops he responded to one of the messages in an attempt to stop the harassment. We’re told the individual replied, “F**k You” and “F**k your mom and your family.” As Gossip Cop previously reported, Tomlinson’s mother Johanna died in December 2016 after a battle with leukemia at the age of 42.

Tomlinson and his attorney Blair Berk have since met with the LAPD Threat Management Unit to describe share the scary texts. Cops immediately began an investigation into the threatening messages and appear to be closing in on a suspect, reports TheBlast. Tomlinson believes the person behind the violent death threats is a female American between the age of 18 and 25.

Unfortunately, Tomlinson isn’t the first One Direction member to receive death threats. In 2015, Harry Styles was the recipient of a chilling death threat that warned something would happen to him during a One Direction concert in New Jersey. The individual in the case tweeted, “I Made This Account To Let Everyone Know That Harry Styles Will Die, August 5th 2015, At MetLife Stadium.” Gossip Cop has reached out to Berk and Tomlinson’s publicist for more information.
