One Direction star Louis Tomlinson has been strongly linked with former Disney actress Danielle Campbell since early December. Louis and Danielle have been spotted together in L.A., London, and in Val D’isere in France, where they reportedly had a skiing break together over new-year. To date, Tomlinson’s reported romance with Campbell has followed the usual format of One Direction “winter girlfriend” stories. We have seen pictures of Louis and Danielle on “milkshake” dates, “ice cream” dates, and even reports that Tomlinson was “kicked out” of a London comedy club whilst with Campbell.
When Louis’ son Freddie Tomlinson was born on January 21, we then saw some confusion in sections of the media who didn’t seem sure whether they should be reporting on Tomlinson’s new romance or his becoming a dad. As the awards season gets into full swing, it now seems that the focus has definitely shifted back to Tomlinson’s love-life.
According to the Sun Louis spent Sunday evening “avoiding a One Direction reunion” when he and Danielle attended an pre-Grammy party in Los Angeles.
“[Louis] might be in the same city as his former bandmates but it seemed pretty clear that Louis Tomlinson did not fancy a One Direction reunion.”
“Because while Harry Styles and Zayn Malik found themselves in the same room for the first time since Zayn parted company with the group, Louis took himself off to another bash on the other side of town.”
For whatever reason, The Sun implied that Tomlinson was trying to avoid his bandmates. This is a rather off assertion because neither Liam Payne or Niall Horan were at either of the parties, and Styles and Malik didn’t actually talk to each other at the party they attended along with thousands of others. It is something of a stretch to claim that Louis avoided a One Direction reunion in those circumstances.

The Mirror reports that a “loved-up” Louis spent his first Valentine’s Day with girlfriend Danielle Campbell and was a “complete gentleman.” Apparently, Louis was affectionate towards Danielle as they hit Primary Wave’s 10th Anniversary and Candy Crush Jelly Saga pre-Grammy party Sunday in West Hollywood. It seems that Louis put his hand on Danielle’s back and was spotted kissing the starlet.
The Daily Mail reports that Louis and Danielle “put on a very loving display” as they attended the industry bash on Sunday night, and it even seems that Campbell has become a One Direction fan. The Mail reports that Danielle told E! News that she thinks One Direction’s Made In The A.M. is “amazing.”
“I love their music and am a huge fan of them. I love their newest album…it’s amazing!”
Pictures of Louis and Danielle have emerged that seem to show Louis and Danielle cozying up, but a clip of video taken by a fan seconds later tells a different story. The pictures show Louis and Danielle outside of a hotel seemingly waiting for a car, and Louis has his arm around Danielle.

The clip of video seems to be shot as Louis and Danielle walk off towards the vehicle, and as they emerge from behind a pillar, Louis wanders off in a different direction.

To date, neither Tomlinson nor Campbell has actually confirmed that they are dating, and many One Direction fans believe that the reported relationship is nothing more than a PR stunt. Whatever the truth, Tomlinson and Campbell have certainly been spending some time in each others company and were recently spotted together as they celebrated Danielle’s birthday with dinner in Venice, California.
Regular followers of Tomlinson and One Direction believe that we will soon see reports that Louis and Danielle have gone their separate ways. In previous years, all of the One Direction “winter girlfriend” stories have run their course by the end of February, usually with the latest One Direction tour being cited as the main reason for the break-up.
Of course, there is no tour this year, so perhaps Tomlinson and Campbell’s romance will enjoy a longer shelf life.
