Louis Tomlinson is an English singer, songwriter, and performer in a relationship with his long-time girlfriend, Eleanor Calder.
Even though he started his career as an actor in television drama, Louis rose to fame after auditioning on the singing reality show, ‘The X Factor’ in 2010.
On the show, he was put into a band with four other candidates to create ‘One Direction’ after being disqualified as a solo artist.
One Direction eventually became successful and was crowned one of the greatest boy bands of all time.
In 2016, the group went on hiatus, and all the members, including Louis, have since pursued thriving solo careers.
Is Louis Tomlinson Gay? Meet His Girlfriend Eleanor Calder
The rumor of Louis Tomlinson being gay turned out to be false when he started dating Eleanor Calder in November 2011.
The couple broke off in March 2015 but again got together in 2017 and has been together since then.
Despite dating for five years, the pair still avoids exposing their relationship on social media; however, they occasionally post on Instagram.
With more than 3.5 million Instagram followers, Eleanor has established herself as a celebrity in her own right since encountering Louis.
Calder graduated with a degree in sociology from the University of Manchester. She used to work as a fashion blogger before becoming an assistant stylist.
Moreover, Tomlinson had a son named Freddie with his now-ex, Briana Jungwirth, in 2016, which completely throws off his gay rumor.
