Okay, Directioners. We are just as sad as you are about all of the changes happening with our boys in One Direction. After Zayn announced he will be taking a leave from the One Direction World Tour, we have just learned that Louis and his longtime girlfriend Eleanor have split after 4 years together.

This news comes as a major surprise. We definitely thought Louis and Eleanor were in it for the long haul, but it just goes to show how hard long distance really is. Sources say that the 1D singer's tour schedule may have played a role in the split. Louis is travels 9 months out of the year with the band... that has got to be hard on any relationship!

A rep for One Direction stated, “Louis and Eleanor split up two weeks ago. They have not announced this as they wanted some privacy during this time.”

Earlier today, a sad looking Eleanor was spotted leaving her London apartment with her dog.

 

We wish them both the best during this difficult time.

 

What do you guys think? Did you see this coming? Let’s chat it out in the comments!
