After splitting from long-term girlfriend Eleanor Calder earlier this month, One Direction‘s Louis Tomlinson has apparently been leaning on his lovely family for their support during this tough time.
We imagine he’s leaning on certain others too (ahem), but it’s being reported that his teenage sister Lottie is providing a shoulder on which Louis can cry the whole thing out.
SO MANY EMOTIONS, SO LITTLE TIME.
Sidenote: If Lottie ever gets a bit fed-up with having a shoulder full of snot and tears, we will genuinely hop on the next plane to wherever and donate our limbs. Or something. ANYWAY.
According to The Mirror, the gorgeous Lottie is currently touring with the boys and has been there for Louis after his break-up.
A source has revealed: “Lottie has always been close to Louis, so it’s great for him to have her there while on the road.
“It’s been a tough time for him, and Lottie – who was also close to Eleanor – understands him better than anyone.
“She’s an aspiring make-up artist, so she’s also been getting great experience on the tour with the band’s hairdresser, Lou Teasdale.”
Brb, trying to clear up the mess our hearts have made from all that melting. What a lovely family, eh?
Friends have apparently also been keeping Eleanor company (and probably giving her lots of ice cream, and chick flicks to watch), and have told reporters that she won’t be commenting on the split.
We’ve had our suspicions over Elounor’s relationship status for weeks, but this weekend it was finally revealed that Louis and Eleanor were well and truly over, with a rep for the star confirming the news.
Confirming the break-up to MailOnline, the 1D spokesman said: “Louis and Eleanor split up two weeks ago. They have not announced this as they wanted some privacy during this time.”
The news came after photos of Louis Tomlinson supposedly ‘locking lips’ with a ‘mystery girl’ did the rounds (yeah, still not convinced on that one).
a source told The Sun that Louis had been spotted kissing the ‘mystery girl’ in a Thai pool… although we not entirely convinced by the whole thing.
They said: “He was pictured locking lips with the mystery girl in Thai capital Bangkok where he partied with bandmate Zayn Malik.”
However, that ‘mystery girl’ might not be quite such a mystery anymore, after the Directioner Detectives seemingly uncovered her identity and revealed that she could well be a model from their ‘What Makes You Beautiful’ video.
Hmm, the plot thickens.
According to eagle-eyed fans, Louis’ *ahem* swimming buddy bares a very striking resemblance to one of the girls in the band’s 2011 video for ‘What Makes You Beautiful’.
So, they’ve known each other for four whole years?!
Yep, we’re still slightly confused as to why the model would be in Thailand with the boys.
We’re not sure quite how much more One Direction drama we can handle, but watch this space, because we reckon there’s WAY more to come.
