Relationship With Louis
Eleanor and Louis were reportedly introduced to each other by a friend of Harry's around September 2011, though it was later discovered she had mutual friends at Modest Management (see below). Louis and Eleanour - dubbed "Elounor" by fans - became exclusive in October 2011. She often accompanied him to work related events, social events and on tours. The couple split on March 7, 2015, with the news confirmed two weeks later on March 21. While neither elaborated on the reasons behind their split, People Magazine reported "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."
2017 Reunion/Airport Altercation
Louis originally unfollowed Eleanor on Instagram on December 4 2015, then re-followed her again on January 29, 2017. On February 13 2017, Eleanor and Louis met fans on a Los Angeles beach. On February 16, Eleanor re-followed Louis on Instagram. An article published in UK tabloid The Sun on February 19 confirmed the two were seeing each other again, though neither have publicly spoken about their renewed relationship yet.
On March 3, 2017, Louis and Eleanor became involved in a brief altercation at LAX airport with a photographer and three alleged fans. After the photographer startled Eleanor, Louis attempted to block the paparazzo from taking more pictures. The two grappled and fell to the floor. When a woman began filming Eleanor on her phone, Eleanor tried to knock the phone out of her hand. The woman responded by cornering and attacking her. Louis rushed to pull the woman away from Eleanor, and the two fell backward. Airport staff stepped in shortly afterward. Citizen arrests were made and Louis was booked with simple battery and held in an LA jail for one hour. Louis's legal team issued a statement, saying: "The paparazzi provoked and caused the altercation that occurred with Louis. It's not the first time that a paparazzi has created an altercation with a celebrity. While the altercation was going on with the paparazzi, three other individuals were attacking his girlfriend during this incident and he came to her defense." No charged were filed.
On March 21 2017, Louis and Eleanor attended a James Arthur concert together.
In 2015, Eleanor officially established a fashion blog called The Trend Pear, with longtime friend Max Hurd.
ControversyIn 2013, Eleanor attended the premiere of One Direction's concert film This Is Us. As she walked the red carpet, she warmly hugged various members of Modest Management, and appeared to be on extremely friendly terms with them. This was in direct contrast to Louis's notable shunning of the same people, often ignoring them or making underhanded remarks about their conduct in interviews. A fan discovered mutual connections between Eleanor and Modest's Harry Griffiths: she attended university and was friends with Griffith's son. That same year, a journalist attending London Fashion Week tweeted: "i can't concentrate on the clothes at topshop because louis tomlinson is front row pretending to be straight #lfw" in reference to Louis attending the catwalk runway show with Eleanor. In March 2016, Eleanor fiercely defended friend Sophia Smith online, after a journalist for Now Magazine allegedly tried to fabricate a "tell-all" interview from Sophia about her split from Liam, and his subsequent dating of pop star Cheryl. Calder referred to the journalist as a "prick".
