According to this tabloid, Louis and Eleanor split once again just before Christmas 2022 after five years together.
It is believed that they faced some problems in their relationship after they spent time apart whilst Louis embarked on his world tour last year.
Although a reunion is said to be likely, they are reportedly no longer together as a source said: "It put pressure on their relationship, Louis being away for so long. Other things have gone down between them and for now, at least, they have split up.
"The couple "have mutual friends and a long history" so there is a chance of reconciliation, just not right now, said the insider.
Rumours of their split came just days before as Eleanor shared a highlight reel of her best bits of 2022 and fans noticed the 'Walls' singer was noticeably absent from the video.
Are Louis Tomlinson and Eleanor Calder engaged?
In January 2020 it was reported Eleanor and Louis were engaged, after a gossip site story spread among One Direction fans.
However, a representative for Louis quickly denied the speculation to the tabloids.
How and when did Eleanor and Louis meet?
Directioners have a few different theories about when the pair met each other, with some saying Harry Styles was a mutual friend that introduced them and others claiming it was a university friend of Eleanor's who knew 1D's management.
Their first public outing was in 2011 at Niall Horan's birthday party. After their relationship was confirmed, fans referred to them as Eleounor.
How long have Louis and Eleanor been together?
Louis and Eleanor first got together in 2011, but split in 2015.
In 2017 they got back together and have remained in a relationship ever since until reports circulated in January 2023 that they had called it quits again.
Why did Louis and Eleanor split the first time?
Louis and Eleanor were together until March 2015 when they announced they had split, with reports at the time claiming their separation was down to the pop star's hectic work schedule leading him to be away from Eleanor for long periods of time.
People Magazine said: "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."
Louis then had a son, Freddie, with close friend Brianna Jungwirth in January 2016 but in 2017, Louis and Eleanor reconciled.
What has Louis said about his relationship with Eleanor?
Although the couple prefers to keep their romance out of the public eye, Louis has proved how in love he is with his girlfriend in past interviews.
In an interview on Lorraine in 2018, Louis spoke about his song ‘Back To You’ and linked it to his relationship with Eleanor.
He said: “There are some personal things that I relate to and contribute to lyrics. Nice to have something not as directly as relatable to me. The relationship with Eleanor is coincidental. But the relationship in the song is intense. Maybe they're not right for each other. I wouldn’t describe Eleanor as that. She’s ace.”
Do Louis and Eleanor have children together?
No, the couple don't have kids together, as the father-of-one shares Freddie with his ex, Brianna.
However, in an interview with a tabloid in 2020 he revealed he sees a future with Eleanor, saying: "One day, yeah, I’d imagine so. If you’re asking me if I’m going to marry her? Yes, I think so! And more kids, I’d say so.”
