Los Angeles - Louis Tomlinson has split from his girlfriend.

The One Direction star - who had been dating Eleanor Calder for four years - reportedly separated from the brunette two weeks ago and has since been snapped kissing a mystery woman whilst on tour in Thailand, pictures in The Sun on Sunday reveal.

An eyewitness shared: "We woke up at 06:30 when we heard music and voices outside by the pool. After looking out of the window in our room we noticed it was Louis and Zayn. We couldn't believe it.

"We knew they were in town and playing in Bangkok. They all looked like they had been drinking and there were glasses strung around the pool. There was Louis, Zayn, their two girls and another couple. A security guard was watching over them. Louis had stripped off and got in the pool before he began kissing his girl."

The split was confirmed by a spokesperson, who added: "Louis and Eleanor split up two weeks ago. They have not announced this as they wanted some privacy during this time."

The news that Eleanor, 22, has split from the 23-year-old singer has left the pair's families heartbroken as they were all so close.

A pal said: 'They were really in love; it's so sad. Louis was set to be at a family wedding with her very soon and he was like another son and Eleanor was so close with Louis' mum, she was her maid of honour."

It comes just days after photos emerged of Louis' bandmate Zayn Malik supposedly holding hands with a girl, named as Lauren Richardson, in Phuket, Thailand.

Hours later, the 22-year-old singer was signed off the band's On The Road Again Tour with stress and flew back to the United Kingdom where he reportedly held "crisis talks" with his fiancé Perrie Edwards.
