Relationship With Louis

Eleanor and Louis were introduced to each other by a friend of Harry's around September 2011, before becoming exclusive in October 2011.[4] She often accompanied him to work related events, social events and on tours. The couple initially 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."[5] 

2017 Reunion/Airport Altercation

Louis originally unfollowed Eleanor on Instagram in December 2015, before re-following her in January 2017. On 13 February 2017, Eleanor and Louis met fans in Los Angeles[6], sparking talk of a reunion. Eleanor re-followed Louis on Instagram in February. Louis eventually confirmed their reconciliation to various press outlets.

On 3 March 2017, Louis and Eleanor became involved in a brief altercation at LAX airport with a photographer and three women. 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 in to pull the woman away, 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[7]." No charges were filed.

Tomlinson stated his debut solo album would detail his path to reconciliation with Eleanor, saying the tracks are a chronological map of the year they spent apart. He has confirmed the tracks "Miss You" and "Always You" are about Calder, and clarified "Back To You" is not about her.


In 2015, Eleanor established a fashion blog called The Trend Pear, with longtime friend Max Hurd.[8] The blog was discontinued in 2017. She currently works as a Assistant Stylist.[9]


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.[10] Calder referred to the journalist as a "prick".
