Louis Tomlinson has found love with model Eleanor Calder but his past is back to haunt him. The One Direction singer’s Twitter followers insist that the 20-year-old break it off with Calder and reunite with his first love, Hannah Walker.
Tomlinson had dated Walker for 18 months before splitting and eventually moving on to his new relationship. The exes met and fell in love when performing in Grease at Hall Cross sixth form college in their town of Doncaster.
In 2010, Tomlinson tried out for The X Factor and eventually made it to the finals as a member of One Direction. Walker, who is now a teaching assistant, ventured to London each week to witness her boyfriend’s rise to stardom. Unfortunately, with fame came an unexpected breakup in June.
Following his split with Walker, Tomlinson and Calder became a hot new item six months ago. Calder, a Hollister model, is attending Manchester University for politics and sociology.
Fans have taken to Twitter to express their disappointment with the boy band member. They have even resorted to hurtful tweets in an attempt to tear Tomlinson and Calder apart. Fans have also sent Calder old photos of Tomlinson and Walker during happier times in their relationship.
Tomlinson has not taken this situation lightly.
“Truth of the matter is it’s actually not funny in the slightest. I’m reading through some horrible tweets very pissed off!” he tweeted back to one of his followers in frustration.
Calder also wrote back to one of Tomlinson’s fans saying, “Of course I love him…I love Louis as a person, not as a member of a band.”
Before One Direction returned to the UK from their tour in the US, Australia and New Zealand, Tomlinson sent loving tweets to his new flame.
“@EleanorJCalder Love YOU ! xxxx” was just one of the adorable tweets he wrote to Calder as a way to comfort her.
So what does Walker have to say about all of this drama?
“I felt terrible so I sent a text to Liam’s girlfriend [Liam Payne is another member of the band] Danielle saying to tell Eleanor that I’m sorry if I’ve offended her. I didn’t want to look like an evil ex-girlfriend,” she told the Daily Mail UK.
“When I look at him on the television now I know him as two different people—one is the boy from Donaster, and the other is Louis from One Direction,” the ex added.
While Walker revealed her take on the matter, Calder did not comment.
