Line up, ladies – Louis Tomlinson is single again.
Just days after fellow 1D heartthrob Zayn Malik was reported to have left the group’s current tour due to stress amidst cheating rumours, it’s been confirmed that Louis and his longtime girlfriend, Eleanor Calder, have parted ways.
A rep for the band told Billboard, “Louis and Eleanor split up two weeks ago… They have not announced this as they wanted some privacy during the time.”
A friend of Louis told People that the 23-year-old is struggling with the breakup, which happened because “he’s away for nine months a year and they just grew apart”.
The couple had been dating since 2011, and images have already surfaced of Louis locking lips with another lady in Bangkok.
“Louis and the girl were kissing on and off for about 15 minutes,” an onlooker told The Sun.
“Louis was just wearing his boxers, having stripped off to swim… They were snogging passionately.”
Neither Louis or Eleanor have made any mention of their breakup or subsequent events on their social media profiles.
