Louis Tomlinson Starts A New Life Without One Direction, Ex

It is pretty clear from recent headlines that Louis Tomlinson is moving on with his life -- in two directions. One from his music with One Direction and the other with three new ladies who are not Eleanor Calder.

As previously reported by the Inquisitr, there has been a lot of heartbreak in Louis Tomlinson's life over the past month -- and some of it stems from Zayn Malik leaving One Direction. Of course, who could blame Louis Tomlinson for being in a bad mood about Zayn leaving? Big changes can always be unsettling for anyone, including big stars like Louis Tomlinson.

Could it have been Zayn leaving One Direction that led Louis Tomlinson to start thinking about his own solo projects? News emerged on April 17 that Louis Tomlinson is now going in his own direction with music -- without One Direction. This conflicting news comes days after Louis Tomlinson posted on Instagram that he was spending time with Liam Payne in England writing One Direction's next album.

As it appears, People Magazine reports Louis Tomlinson will open his own record label. The source of this information is a subscription-only article from the Sun, where they interviewed Louis Tomlinson about his future.

People quotes Louis Tomlinson as saying about opening his own record label, "To be given the opportunity to potentially give new artists a platform is an incredible feeling. I hope to sign some really exciting new artists down the line."

The Daily Mail reports that Louis Tomlinson will have the full backing of Sony and Simon Cowell's Syco with whom he currently has a contract. Louis Tomlinson stated the following about how the new relationship would work with his old record labels and the new one he is going to open.

"It's absolutely great to be working with Syco on a label. This is something I've wanted to do for some time, and to be given the opportunity to potentially give new artists a platform is an incredible feeling."

Who are these exciting new artists? One singer who caught Louis Tomlinson's eye is Jack Walton, an X Factor U.K. finalist. People also alleges that Louis Tomlinson will be holding auditions for a girl band before he goes back on tour with One Direction in June.

Speaking of time off of tour, the other big gossip about Louis Tomlinson is that he has been out and about with three separate ladies on two separate occasions. The Daily Mail says that he hung out with Christina Milian on April 18 in London -- but the second lady he was hanging out with got left out in the dust by Louis Tomlinson when the van door was shut in her face.

He is also hanging out with a blonde woman that headlines allege may be Louis Tomlinson's new "girlfriend". Despite this, it is likely that she is just a friend. After all, with all of the hectic headlines Louis Tomlinson has been associated with lately, maybe he just needs a good mind to use as a sounding board for his frustrations.

In other words, until "she" is officially announced as his love interest, we cannot assume that Louis Tomlinson is hanging out with a new girlfriend -- yet.

In the meantime, Louis Tomlinson will no doubt continue to fascinate, amaze, and awe us with new song lyrics -- and potentially introduce us to the best new talent in the world through his new record label.
