Louis Tomlinson and his longterm girlfriend Eleanor Calder have called it quits.
“Louis and Eleanor split up two weeks ago,” a rep told People. “They have not announced this as they wanted some privacy during this time.”
“Louis is really upset about it all,” a friend of the 23-year-old singer told People. “They tried really hard to make it work but it was just impossible, he’s away for nine months a year and they just grew apart.”
Eleanor currently lives in Manchester, England, where she attended the University of Manchester. Meanwhile, Louis has been travelling all over the world with his band, One Direction. The couple had been dating since fall of 2011.
According to HollywoodLife, this hasn’t been the best week for One Direction, Zayn Malik left 1D’s world tour due to “stress” and he’s dealing with an incredibly messy cheating scandal.
Fans photos hit the web of Zayn allegedly holding hands with Lauren Rich. This sent the One Direction fandom into a tailspin since Zayn is still engaged to Perrie Edwards.
Zayn has apologized for the PDA pictures, but has denied he cheated on Perrie.
