The 'One Thing' singer admits he was worried about his reputation at the start of his relationship.

One Direction star Louis Tomlinson has confessed that he once sent a text message to girlfriend Eleanor Calder's mum asking her to not judge him like a "stereotypical boyband type".

The 'What Makes You Beautiful' star told The Sun that he was concerned about his reputation and wanted to assure his partner's parents that he wouldn't be sleeping around.

"I was worried about my reputation at first," he said. "I remember I sent Eleanor's mum a few text messages saying, 'Please don’t judge me thinking I'm like the stereotypical boyband type who is going to go around and sleep with everything that moves'."

The Doncaster born star confessed that he needn't have worried and that Eleanor's family are "very understanding" and "really cool".

"I was trying to convince her I'm quite a good lad but I didn't really need to. Her family are really cool actually and very understanding of the situation," he said.

The singer, who was out with his girlfriend last night (4th October) to support X Factor wild card Adam Burridge at a gig in Shoreditch, added that respect is very important to him.

"It's important for me to treat a girlfriend with respect," he declared. "My mum would be horrified if I behaved any differently — and I have sisters, and would hate for them to be treated badly by guys."

Eleanor was recently forced to hit out at rumours the couple had split, following a false online report.

However, Louis' bandmate Liam and Danielle Peazer called time on their relationship last week.
