When Louis Tomlinson was in One Direction, he was dating longtime girlfriend Eleanor Calder and the couple were together for approximately four years. Their relationship seemed to come to an end after Tomlinson was photographed kissing another girl, but busy schedules were reported as the reason for the relationship’s demise. A few months after the break up, news broke that Tomlinson and his friend Briana Jungwirth were expecting a baby. While Jungwirth was pregnant, Tomlinson was photographed with actress Danielle Campbell, before the news came out that the two were dating. Campbell and Tomlinson’s courtship appeared to end around the time of the death of Tomlinson’s mother, Johannah Deakin. Deakin died after a battle with leukemia. The official statement released by the family upon Deakin’s death was this:
Earlier this year Johannah was diagnosed with a very aggressive form of leukemia that required immediate and continuous treatment. We respectfully request that the family are given time and space to grieve in private.
Including Tomlinson, Deakin left behind her husband, along with seven children – Louis, Lottie, 18, Felicite, 16, twins Daisy and Phoebe, both 12, and twins Ernest and Doris, both two years old.
About a month after Deakin’s sad passing, there were reports that Tomlinson reached out to ex-girlfriend Eleanor Calder for support. Deakin was reportedly very close with Calder and The Sun reports a source stating:
Eleanor was very close to Johannah and was even maid of honor at her 2014 wedding to husband Dan … No doubt she will have been devastated by her passing and keen to show Louis support.
Though Calder and Tomlinson split in 2015, they appear to have worked things out and rekindled their romance. The pair first started dating in 2011.
According to The Sun, Eleanor Calder works as a model, stylist and fashion blogger for The Trend Pear.
